“The Lakeland Dream Center provides a holistic approach to meeting the needs of both individuals and families in a real and tangible way.”

— Polk County Sherrif, Grady Judd

“The Dream Center has
been an excellent partner in working with at-risk males
in the community through mentoring programs and service projects. In addition the center has lent consistent support to crime-prevention awareness in the community and is playing an active role in helping find a solution
to gang-activity among teenagers in the area.”

— LPD Chief of Police, Larry Giddens 

“The Dream Center
of Lakeland ... is now transforming the minds, bodies, and spirits of hundreds of at risk children, teens, and families in Lakeland’s inner-city through tutoring, recreation, humanitarian, and life-skills Christian programs.”

— Lakeland Mayor, Howard Wiggs
