WE HAVE OUTGROWN OUR SPACE
The South Jersey Dream Center has been serving local families with food since 2010. Since that time, we’ve gradually outgrown three facilities. When we opened our doors in National Park in January, 2015, we served 115 families in one afternoon with food. By the end of December in 2016, we were serving nearly 200 families a month with food, clothing, and training. December 20, 2016 was our last Food & Clothing Distribution at the National Park Fire Hall, and we have been on the search for a new location. In the meantime, we are distributing the food, baby and household items we receive to local agencies to serve the community. WE NEED OUR OWN PERMANENT FACILITY.
Why we need a building
According to the most recent census, there are over 165,000 people in South Jersey living in poverty. However, we believe the cycle of poverty can be broken over people’s lives and a sense of dignity and self-esteem restored. How? By offering people options to change their status quo…from the inside out. To discover their God given purpose and value, and develop their full potential. To become a positive influence in their local communities. We start with helping out with food, clothing, household, baby, and hygiene items. Then begins the personal, spiritual, and professional training. We develop the whole person.
What Kind of Building?
We are seeking 10,000+ square feet of warehouse and office space, with plenty of parking, classrooms, and enough room to accommodate more people, more food, more clothing, more training, and more resources.
