Our Programs

Come join us

As the rapidly evolving coronavirus situation increasingly impacts both our work and personal lives in unprecedented ways, the Dream Center has made changes to the way we deliver programs and services to our members while helping to ensure their safety and the safety of our staff and volunteers. Here is a list of the programs we offer and those marked with an asterisk (*) are currently being offered virtually, either by means of Zoom or Facebook:

All About Me

Members share their life stories. Pictures are encouraged. This has proven to be very cathartic for those who participate.

Explore different styles using acrylic and watercolor paints, and still life drawing with colored pencils. So whether you are an accomplished artist or just draw stick figures join us, maybe learn something new, and share in the fun!

Bingo

At least once a month we play bingo to engage the members in a fun, competitive game that helps with congnitive and motor function.
