Reaching young children, youth and adults with a message of hope and healing to restore broken lives, broken families and broken dreams.  The Dream Center opened in 2001 with a vision to provide basic needs and a safe environment to the marginalized of Ashtabula.

    What an honor it is to be a part of the Ashtabula Dream Center.  In 2001 the vision was no longer a vision but became a reality.  The ministry went from feeding people on the streets to only a few times per month to a full time ministry.   The Ashtabula Dream Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit committed to the ministries listed on this website.
