Dream Center

The York Regional Dream Center is an outreach ministry designed to meet the basic needs of individuals in and around York County, PA and northern MD. This is accomplished through connecting people to free programs and services that address immediate and long-term needs in the areas of hunger, poverty, and physical well-being—-thereby sharing the love and compassion of Jesus in tangible and meaningful ways. Every resource in the Dream Center is free to those who cannot afford to pay and donations are always welcome from those who want to support the ongoing work.
