DreamBuilders 2020: Building for Those in Need

DreamBuilders plans to build folding desks and school supply organizer kits for home use for children in need. Our change in focus is the result of adjusted conditions during the COVID pandemic. We will ensure appropriate physical distancing for our volunteers’ safety during our local work days this summer and fall.

The project utilizes our building and technical skills to address a community need. We intend to provide these items to improve the study environment for elementary and high school students, particularly for those learning remotely from bedrooms. An organized learning environment not only affects concentration and productivity–it also promotes physical, emotional and social well-being.

We seek teen and adult involvement in planning, design, building, and distribution. If you want to help, or have questions, email Doug at silversteinleung@yahoo.com

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

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.

CANCELLED: Announcing…our 2020 Summer Mission Trips

CANCELLED due to Covid-19. Please stay safe, everyone! 4/03/2020

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..

Category 5 Hurricanes Maria and Michael caused death and destruction in Puerto Rico (2017) and Panama City, FL (2018) . You can help families return home by joining one of our mission trips. 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.
