Right now, children in Dubuque experience hunger and food insecurity – causing struggles in learning, well-being, and behavior that last a lifetime.
Right now, children in Dubuque lack the direct support, character building enrichment, and extra guidance they need to realize their own worth and potential.
At the Dream Center, we believe that Dubuque is the kind of community that believes in the future of the dreams of all our children.
Since 2013, the Dream Center has grown from serving 15 students to 190. Not only do students receive round-the-clock in your life mentoring and support from the Dream Center, school and parents, they participate in athletic and arts programming that provides enrichment and incentives to succeed.
From serving 29,340 meals a year, to investing thousands of hours into each of our students, the Dream Center is positively transforming lives.
But, there are more than 150 students on our wait list. Our students need the community’s help in making the dreams of every child come true. We are asking you to become a Dream Maker!
