The Opportunity Village
This one of a kind homeless shelter program developed by The Dream Center is not an emergency shelter. This year long program utilizes a tiny house model, and empowers residents to grow, change and become self-sufficient. Opportunity Village is a one-year program for women and women with children who are homeless.
The Dream Center general store offers personal hygiene, paper, and baby products for purchase with Dream Dollars. The Dream Center General Store is open every Wednesday from 10:00-11:00 AM.
Intake Specialists are available to meet with them to determine an action plan that best fits their crisis situation.
We offer food boxes, showers, store vouchers and a change of clothing when appropriate in emergency situations. Other resources are also available for finding employment and housing and receiving a “hand-up” through attending our free classes. Over 50 free classes are available each month on topics such as budgeting, parenting, and health.
Each Dream Dollar is worth $8 and can be redeemed at The Dream Center to purchase personal hygiene products from The General Store, wash and dry a load of laundry, and take a shower. Additionally, Dream Dollars can be used in one of our three Dream Center Resale Store locations (Easley/Pickens/Seneca).
