The Phoenix Dream Center

The Phoenix Dream Center, a volunteer driven nonprofit organization, which exists to serve the homeless, low-income, at risk youth and struggling individuals and families by providing resources, opportunities and supportive services to help them realize their dream of living a self-sufficient life.

Founded in 2006, the Phoenix Dream Center currently serves over 40,000 people each month.  We have become best known for 2 things in our City; Our Community Outreaches and Our Housing Programs. 

Each week through the various Dream Center Programs, we conduct 110 Street and Nursing Home Outreaches to people in need.  At each Outreach, Food, Clothing and a message of Hope and God's Love is shared.  Our Programs provide housing to over 300 people each night.  The Housing Programs at the Phoenix Dream Center include a Christian-based Life Recovery Program, A Program for Young Women out of Sex Trafficking including Crisis Pregnancy, An Affordable Housing Program and A Foster Care Age-Out Program.  


The Foundation’s main initiative is Angels Around Us of Arizona. Families who have a child suffering from a chronic or life threatening illness are encouraged to apply for Angels Around Us. The Pearce Family Foundation’s initiative will help families get back on their feet by paying for bills at the home and step in so the parents can focus on their child’s journey to get well.

The Foundation’s newest initiative is, Angel Dogs which is similar to their other grant program but this one helps financially pay for a service dog for children in need of one. Normal life is a distant memory to these families and need the communities and the Pearce Family Foundation’s assistance.
