A local serving opportunity, engaging in our community, and a mission trip - all rolled into one 24 hour period.
In September of this year, CCV sent a team on an overnight trip to the Phoenix Dream Center (PDC) located near Grand Ave and 35th Ave. The team spent two days doing projects around the center, such as clearing out closets of donations, painting, and general clean ups. The team had the opportunity to hear from residents of the PDC and how the center has changed their lives. It was amazing to see how the residents were so invested in the center, and were not only working to better themselves, but were also working hard to better the other residents.
The Phoenix Dream Center exists to disciple men and women through community based outreach programs, which includes long term housing at a complex that was formally an Embassy Suites. They offer programs lasting anywhere from 3 months to 2 years that help people overcome difficult seasons of life (addiction recovery, coming out of prison, aging out of foster care, leaving abusive relationships, etc) through Christ-centered discipleship, structured living, and community outreach.
CCV is excited to offer this opportunity to our members and attendees. It gives us a chance to know the needs and resources in our community! We have an upcoming trip to the dream center this January. Check it out!
