What we do.
Our goal at the Orange County Dream Center is to support the local community and the County of Orange through each one of our programs. We seek to build relationships and trust in families and individuals who have experienced brokenness or are lacking hope, to bring them to a place of stability and ultimately lead them to a relationship with Jesus.
We do this through a layered approach, involving consistency, trust, and a demonstration of Jesus’ deep and encompassing love through meeting practical needs of the community. Our goal is not to just fix the temporary issues, but to make a lasting impact through a long-term, positive influence. Take a look at our programs to see how we are growing this influence in our community!
