Dream Big Community Center




Ultimately, Dream Big’s vision is to create community centers nationally and internationally. In order to fulfill the vision, Dream Big would expand to cardinal cities within the metro area nucleus after the first center was built, financially stable, and successful in completing the mission statement. Once Dream Big has established itself in the metropolitan area and the four surrounding cities, the center will expand in helping individuals fulfill their dreams.


Dream Big Community Center (DBCC) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded in 2004. The organization was founded to help the development of young adolescents in the Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon Metropolitan area. DBCC was created to bring back the value of community to neighborhoods, and to allow all people to follow their dreams – no matter what age they may be!


Dream Big will be that something to aspiring individuals. Dream Big will be that opportunity. Dream Big will be that after-school program, tutor, support system, and if need be, friend. The Dream Big Community Center is to create the true meaning of a community center; and to allow all people to follow their dreams, no matter what age they may be.

Starting Dream Big Community Center wasn’t a childhood dream, but it’s my calling. I’ve been very fortunate in my life to have received so many great support throughout the years. In those years, I made lots of mistakes. I don’t want any kids to live out my mistakes.
