Over 80 million people in more than 70 countries are fighting hunger, homelessness, violence and unemployment. We're here to help. On any given night over 500,000 people experience homelessness in the United States. This number is predicted to rise unless there is a significant shift in the economic growth and development of our communities.
Field of Dreams Visionary Center launched in '2013 and incorporated in January 2016. We are a not-for-profit, 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt organization that exist to eradicate homelessness, violence, trauma, drug addiction and poverty, bringing hope to the hopeless and vulnerable.
We provide housing placement, violence prevention programs, drug addiction and trauma counseling, career development, financial literacy, entrepreneur training, job placement, re-entry services, wealth building programs and Youth STEAM (Science, Technology, Entertainment Production, Art and Media) after-school & Summer programs. Created in 2018 as the first extended aftercare *Addiction housing and holistic treatment Center is scheduled to open in the Fall 2022!
Field of Dreams Visionary Center is a social service agency, providing housing and job placement resources for the homeless and low-income families, and individuals. We provide workers to help staff non profits, small business and others for FREE. We offer several programs including Career Development, Financial Literacy, Crisis Prevention, Career Coaching and Advising, Youth summer and after-school STEAM programs, counseling in anger management, addiction, trauma and domestic violence.
Most of us are fortunate enough to have a home to go to and a comfortable bed to sleep in daily. But for many people, access to these simple pleasures have been lost due to many unfortunate circumstances...job loss, health, low wages, debt.
Without income it is impossible to be self-sufficient, and provide for a family. Providing training and job opportunities restores hope, security and happiness.
Providing individuals with the tools they need to succeed and create positive change throughout disinvested communities is essential. After completing the violence prevention program, we provide permanent job placement to participants.
