DID YOU KNOW?

92% of women who are homeless have suffered physical and sexual abuse.

About one child in every public school classroom experiences homelessness each year.

1768 kids in El Paso County school districts are homeless each year.

WHAT IS EXTREME DREAM?

Extreme Dream kicks off with the Dream Centers’ construction team building around the clock to complete the brand new Family Life Center at Mary’s Home (a long term trauma-informed home for moms and their children experiencing homelessness) in just 10 days! Have you ever watched a building go from concrete to complete in such a short time? Didn’t think so. You won’t want to miss the events we have planned during this amazing week.

 

​The project doesn’t stop once the Family Life Center is built. We have lots more to do! Though not quite as fast, the Family Services Center will be constructed next door by the end of the year.

WE START WITH THE FAMILY LIFE CENTER…

Safe play areas for kids to experience growth and love

A community room with space for healing and celebration

A kitchen  to learn how to prepare family meals

AND THEN BUILD THE FAMILY SERVICES CENTER…

Classrooms with room for transformative trainings

Areas for trauma informed counseling and prayer

3 new apartments so more families can be off the street

WHO IS DREAM CENTERS

Dream Centers exists to care for and empower women and children in poverty in El Paso County. Unlike shelters, Mary’s Home was opened by Dream Centers as a long-term facility designed to give women and their children a safe space to heal from trauma and create a new life.

WHY EXTREME DREAM?

The demand for a program like Mary’s Home hasn’t slowed and limited facilities has forced Dream Centers to turn away hundreds families seeking a safe home. Every year we are forced to turn away 400 families due to lack of space.

 

The ultimate dream is to put an end to family homelessness in the El Paso region by helping mothers become self-sufficient so they can provide a safe home for their children. By 2022 we hope to have room for 60 mother’s and their children to heal and develop crucial life skills. That’s another 48 families than we can serve now!

 

Extreme Dream is the next phase of expanding the care provided at Mary’s Home and we need your help!

MARY’S HOME WAS THE BEST DECISION SHE MADE FOR HER SON

During her first night at Mary’s Home, Cassie couldn’t stop crying. Anxiety and uncertainty overwhelmed her. After talking with a friend, she realized her tears were tears of relief because she was finally safe! As she watched her son sleep soundly through the night for the first time, Cassie knew that her move to Mary’s Home was the best decision she had made for him.

THE EXTREME DREAM GOAL – $1.7 MILLION

No matter the amount, every donation goes toward life transformation.
