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.

Lastly, they serve elderly and disenfranchised New Yorkers through free city-wide in home visitations.
