BENEFITING: Chicago Dream Center
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
Chicago Dream Center, one of the many of New Life Covenant Church's non-profits, strives to meet the practical needs of people while sharing with them faith, hope, and love. Our goal is to lead our community toward a new life and to give individuals the hope to dream again. Here at the Dream Center, we commit to loving the forsaken, remembering the forgotten, and pursuing the lost in our society. We intentionally reach out to homeless, drug addicts, prostitutes, convicts, felons, and runaways. We welcome the battered and bruised, the hungry and poor. We are an equal opportunity agency – so long as you are black and blue you have come to the right place! Like the rest of us who were once were lost, we want to welcome you home. We dedicate our lives to fighting the vicious cycle of poverty, including the forms of injustice and oppression tied to it. We want to make a difference in our community and our world even if it means reaching one life at a time. We share faith, hope and love through holistic programs and education. Each of our ministries strive to meet physical, emotional, as well as spiritual needs. We offer food, clothing, shelter, life recovery, support groups, referrals, job searching and training. Alongside these compassion ministries, we strive to educate ourselves and others to advocate as voices of justice. Challenge yourself to speak up!
