Description


The Central Florida Dream Center (CFDC) is making a significant difference by positively impacting the lives of men, women, and children of Sanford. The CFDC is a One-Stop non-profit community empowerment Center, we partners with other organizations to impact the region. Located in a 46,000 SF facility in the heart of inner-city Sanford, FL where crime, abuse, and poverty run rampant, the Dream Center is turning dreams into destiny... The CFDC has a proven pattern to reduce crime in the community. Currently in the community served by the CFDC 9 out of 10 children are fatherless. To give significance to thise facts here are some disturbing statistics: 90% of runaway children are from fatherless homes 71% of high school drop-outs are from fatherless homes 85% of youth in prison are from fatherless homes 90% of inmates on death row are from fatherless homes The Dream Center's goal is to break this cycle and offer programs for youth, adults and families. Our mission is to equip and empower individuals, families and communities to self-sufficiency so that they become contributing members of our society. In a community where the local drug dealer is often the only male role model figure a young person has, you can see why the need is so great for an organization such as this. By following in the footsteps of similar organizations the Dream Center has already reduced crime in the community, but much more needs to be done. By providing a "hand-up" as oppossed to a "hand-out" the Dream Center makes a long-term change in the lives of those who are serious about improving their situation.
