About:
Dream Center NYC's programs are primarily based in Chelsea and East Harlem in a collection of public housing communities and outdoor relief stations. They serve their communities through creating family-centered weekly block parties and free community markets. Additionally, each week they establish outdoor relief stations in East Harlem to provide a place of refuge and support for individuals walking through homelessness. Lastly, they serve elderly and disenfranchised New Yorkers through free city-wide in home visitations.
