We do this through street outreach, community engagement, residential/live in adult discipleship, transitional housing, mentoring in schools, foster care intervention & much more. Meeting people where they are at to bring hope & restoration back into their lives.

It is a great honour and privilege to be associated with Andrew and Moira Brown and the Auckland Dream Centre, an affiliate of the Los Angeles Dream Center. The Browns are truly great people of integrity and passion for reaching hurting people with the love of Jesus. It is the very reason we placed them in New Zealand to found and build a Dream Center.

Get Involved


Adopt-A-Block is a volunteer-driven community outreach that finds the needs and heals the hurt. Adopt-A-Block activities include school beautification projects, food distribution, clothing giveaways and neighbourhood clean-ups.



“We get to serve” is a mandate that Dream Centre Volunteers thrive off as they serve the people of our nation that find refuge on the streets of our city and those that are dealing with substance abuse. 

The Street outreach teams are able to meet the immediate needs of our unsheltered community with food and hot drinks and also share vital information about The Dream Centre’s programs and services. 



There are hundreds of kids that are separated from parents simply due to poverty-related issues every month. To help prevent families from being separated, the Foster Care Intervention Program assists these families by providing furniture, food, clothing, appliances, and other basic items needed to allow parents to retain or regain custody of their children and also transitional foster care.



Dream Centre Youth Care Service is a Residential Mentoring program aimed at establishing a person in Christian disciplines that will help the individual live a sober and successful life.

The individual will have participated in many hours of community work, engaged with educational studies , and other training which includes: Character training, life skills, developed identity, work base training, fitness & well-being, goals achievement along with education and career development.
