Join the Story

Volunteers are integral partners in providing health and hope at every level of Dream Centers. We are committed to establishing an environment of cultural sensitivity that reflects the love of Jesus to all. Because many of our volunteer opportunities are training intensive, we may ask for a nine- month commitment of service in your area of interest.

Ashley serves in the role of Admissions Coordinator at Mary’s Home. She loves working in a well-rounded and wholistic environment where staff and residents all care for one another deeply. Whether staff or resident, at Mary’s Home. everyone is part of a family that comes together to support each other to the best of our ability. For Ashley, getting to come in to work every day excited to see her coworkers and motivated to do her job is the biggest blessing in the world.

Ashley is a single mom from Tennessee with one beautiful little girl. She loves to be outdoors because the mountains and trees make all of her problems seem so small compared to what God has created. She and her daughter love to ice skate, play board games, and snuggle up on the couch together at the end of the day. She is passionate about clean eating and is obsessed with Thai and Mexican food!

In his role at CEO and Pastor of Dream Centers, Matthew is all about connecting and serving people with excellence. He spent several years in the Air Force, building and managing air and space programs, and teaching at USAFA, before founding Dream Centers in 2011. He geeks out on all things leadership and theology, but gets even more life from adventure in the great outdoors with family and friends and seeing people overcome their challenges.

He enjoys travel, reading, the arts, outdoors, and live music. You might see him trail running the Rockies, enjoying the best coffees that Colorado Springs has to offer, or enjoying his neighborhood with his wife, Amber, his son, Zeke, and his daughter, Halle Joy.

For Kylie, it is such an honor and gift to get to partner in the healing and transformative work that God is doing here in this city. She loves being surrounded daily by the brave, powerful, resilient women at Mary’s Home.

Kylie is always up for an adventure and especially loves being in the mountains, even more so if there’s a body of water to play in or sit by. She also loves traveling, learning from new cultures, sitting in local coffee shops, reading good books, and hanging out with family and friends.

She once bungee jumped in Africa at Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world!

My favorite aspect of working at Dream Centers is that Dream Centers is a place of limitless opportunities. In my role as Mary’s Home Community Advocate, I am passionate about creating an environment for people to gather, laugh, and connect.

In my spare time I like to spend time with my daughter; baking cookies, crafting or going on little adventures in our beautiful state, Colorado.

Working at Dream Centers gives me the amazing privilege of overseeing our holistic, high-challenge/high support program for single moms coming out of homelessness, as well as the opportunity to develop leaders and connect with our amazing community partners. Dream Centers is truly motivated by a love for God’s Kingdom and a love for people which makes it a wonderful place to serve.

I am a wife of 17 years and mom to five daughters. Outside of work, you can find me at one of my daughter’s various activities, snuggling with my miniature schnauzer, trying a new craft, or reading something old. Our family also has served as a foster family for El Paso County for the past nine years.

Nora loves that she gets to play a role in helping women and families rebuild their lives. She does this through cultivating relationships with Dream Centers’ generous supporters and prospective donors, sharing the stories of impact and change happening every day, and finding inspiring ways to invite others to partner with Dream Centers to bring health and hope to those being served.

God, family, friends, travel and sports are a big deal for Nora. Nothing matters more than her walk with the Lord and honoring Him with her time, talents and treasure. Utilizing her gift of hospitality, along with her husband Jim’s culinary skills, they enjoy hosting gatherings at their home. Travel is a personal passion of Nora’s. She is a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan and has been known to wear her jersey and wave her Terrible Towel proudly, even though she lives in Bronco territory.

As a registered nurse and Medical Office Coordinator at the Dream Centers Women’s Clinic, Whitney’s desire is to serve, encourage, and care for those in need. She loves that at the Dream Centers Women’s Clinic, she can share hope with those who may feel hopeless and love those who feel unloved.

Whitney enjoys going on adventures with her three daughters in the gorgeous Colorado mountains while camping, hiking, biking, and exploring. Spending time with her family, travel, art, and photography are some of her other interests.

I love the intentionality behind every idea, word, decision, and action. Dream Centers is the place where I am seen, valued, and loved, not just for what I bring to the table, but for who I am as a person… and that goes a long way.

Family time fills my cup along with making clay earrings, taking time to grocery shop, and doing absolutely anything outdoors. I am always on the lookout for new podcasts, coffee shops, books, and little big moments to spend with Jesus.

Stacy loves serving others in the community with a staff that is a family. She appreciates the kindness and generosity of Dream Centers’ leadership team. For Stacy, Dream Centers is a place where she feels cared for and restored while getting to care for and witness the transformation of the women who come to the Clinic. Everywhere she turns, she feels surrounded by support and love.

Stacy’s 2 adult daughters and her precious grandson bring incredible joy to her life! She loves Jesus with all of her heart and He has always been her constant companion. Stacy’s hobbies include reading and crocheting. Stacy collects snowmen and has them up all year round!
