One Step at a Time
The Dream Center of Pickens County is moving forward and I am so excited at not only the progress, but the answered prayers and the opportunities along the way. The Dream Center now has a new logo, a website http://www.dreamcenterpc.org a facebook page facebook.com/TheDreamCenterPickensCounty and a twitter account @DreamCenterPC. Please follow and "friend"!
We are receiving some much needed financial support from individuals in this community and still need to raise much more funding for the purchase of a building. We have accepted a married, homeless couple into the mentoring program and we are also supporting Family Promise of Pickens County to help them reach their goal to begin assisting homeless families by May, 2013.
The challenge of locating the building in Pickens County where God wants The Dream Center has been difficult. We are praying daily for God to reveal this building and provide the way for it to become the home for The Dream Center of Pickens County. Our greatest need is for people to PRAY with us about this building, to be LOOKING for a potential building and to be ASKING others to do the same. Ideally, it would have a commercial kitchen, but we can add the commercial kitchen if necessary. We are praying and expectantly believing God to provide more than we could ever think or imagine.
We are not using the lack of a building as an excuse for inactivity. The Dream Center is already helping people who are seeking a restored life, we are building relationships with other like-minded non-profits and we are seeking funding and fundraising opportunities. We currently have a single mother who is in need of a job, preferably in Easley, first shift. Her car is also in need of repair and she does not have the money to have it fixed. Without it, she doesn't have transportation to get a job to get the money to have it fixed. We have a homeless couple in need of a place to live. He is working and she is in need of a job and has a lot of experience as a waitress. They also have no transportation. The Dream Center is tackling the transportation issue in an effort to come up with a solution to the problem and the cycle of desperation it causes. We are providing tutoring to a young mom who is working on her degree from Greenville Tech to enable the family to move out of government housing and have a better life.
Want to get involved? Here are a few ways:
PRAY with us for a building.
Make a financial donation, big or small, on the website.
Hold a creative fundraiser. Tell your friends about The Dream Center of Pickens County.
If God is leading you to offer employment, offer to perform car repair, provide tutoring, or if you know of very affordable housing opportunities, email questions to Wilson@dreamcenterpc.org
The Dream Center is becoming a reality..one step at a time.
