After months of extensive renovations of its second floor, the Central Kansas Dream Center recently completed and opened its new Mens Wing.
“This new construction allows us to expand on our men’s programs; increasing the number of men we can take in our men’s discipleship program and the opportunity to open our boys aging out of foster care program,” said CKDC Director Kimberly Becker.
The discipleship program is a 9-month residential Christian-based program that helps men and women to overcome life-controlling issues that include but are not limited to substance abuse, anger, depression, and the emotional residue left by mental, physical and sexual abuse through the use of a proven faith based curriculum.
The aging out program “Dream Center Youth Living” is a residential program for girls and boys age 18-21 who have aged out of the foster care system. Services provided include: helping with continuation of and furthering their education and independent living skills. The main focus being their spiritual growth and identity in Christ.
The Dream Center’s purpose statement is “Reaching hurting people, restoring families,and realizing dreams.”
The Kansas Department of Commerce awarded CKDC $200,000 in Kansas Community Service Tax Credits to help with the 3rd floor (phase 3) remolding. The expansion will consist of studio apartments for married couples who want to come through the programs together, assist with housing more staff on sight, provide a clinic room, prayer chapel, conference room and office space.
