Immediate Media Release, March 22, 2011
HENRY COUNTY, VA. --- The Community Dream Center (TCDC) board of directors announces that we are in the process of purchasing a 69 unit apartment complex. The apartments that are being acquired will allow those who are homeless in our community to have shelter and to find resources to help them in the future. With the combined efforts of citizens, businesses and churches The Community Dream Center will succeed in "reBuilding the Dreams of Broken People".
The renovation of the apartments will be done with mostly volunteer labor and materials. TCDC will also begin a transition or discipleship program that will assist men who are not just homeless but have found themselves in some of life's most difficult of places. In the future TCDC hopes to be able to house homeless families and begin a mobile food ministry.
"For several years our church has been serving those in need here in Henry County of which many have been homeless," said Michael Harrison pastor of The Community Fellowship and founder of The Community Dream Center. "Too often the homeless have to go to shelters or missions away from our area. This doesn't have to be our reality any longer." If you are interested in helping or for more information, contact The Community Dream Center by calling 276-647-8231 or by emailing email@example.com.
The Community Dream Center campus plans to open this summer. Please pray for those in need and help make a difference in the lives of those around us.
