DreamBuilders is Mobilizing! Young Adults and Teens: Join our Virtual “Town Hall” June 22

DreamBuilders banner
Serving those in need Since 2002

Sign up for the Virtual Town Hall here

Please join us for a virtual meeting Monday, June 22, 2020 at 7PM. We need your ideas on how DreamBuilders can best serve those in need during this challenging time. Please spread the word and let’s show the community what DreamBuilders can accomplish! Adults are welcome too, but we will be soliciting ideas from the youth first. 

Sadly, the Coronavirus pandemic caused DreamBuilders to cancel our mission trips and local building projects this year. It’s not possible to undertake our significant construction projects while ensuring the safety of our volunteers. Social distancing isn’t feasible on construction sites. Rest assured, we will resume our mission of building homes for those in need as soon as it is safe to do so.

In the meantime, the leadership team is ready to apply our organization skills, significant volunteer base and our financial resources to help during this crisis. We have some ideas on how we can support the local communities with food drives, etc. and we want your input about other ways DreamBuilders can make a difference!

Please note: Participants must sign up in advance. You’ll receive an email with the Zoom link and password within 48 hours. Sign up closes at 3pm on June 22.

DreamBuilders helped repair severely damaged two homes in Puerto Rico in 2019. Above: Clarissa’s home in mid-construction, two years after the deadly storm..

Much work is needed to fully restore communities devastated by these natural disasters. Priority registration is now open for members of DreamBuilders’ parishes or congregations. Registration for other volunteers begins 3/8/2020. Mission trips offer hands-on construction opportunities and fellowship. Teens must have completed 9th grade to go on a mission trip.

We accomplished our goals in a single day: repairs to a group home in Ellicott City–with our ARC partners, in early October. Tasks included demolishing old kitchen cabinets, removing a load-bearing wall and another wall, and installing new cabinets. Thanks to Brian Rezac, Jay Raksin, and the ARC team for guiding us through the day!
