Take a Life-Changing Short Term Missions Trip to Los Angeles!

Book a stay with us in Los Angeles and get hands-on ministry training and serve our communities.


You can help us make a difference in transforming lives and communities through Christ.


Building relationships through outreach consistently is key to serving our underserved communities. Through this program, you’ll visit and serve homeless communities, impoverished areas, and participate in random acts of kindness such as cleaning the streets and beautifying L.A.!


Known to be the largest homeless community in the world, our team goes out to serve by bringing food and supplies, praying, and connecting those living on Skid Row with resources and programs at our center.

Kidz Jam

The Kidz JAM program teams up with Adopt-A-Block to help make a difference in the lives of the youth situated in under-resourced neighborhood sites through sports, games, and other activities such as face painting and dancing!


Partnering with the Los Angeles County’s Department of Children and Family Services, you’ll be joining us to provide and assemble furniture for families at risk of separation due to poverty, as well as offer other services from the center.

Mobile food banks

The Mobile Food Bank program provides relief to low-income families in at-risk neighborhoods. We serve over 20 distribution sites by handing out groceries and in a typical month, serve more than 40,000 people!


On-site volunteers have the opportunity to help keep our shelves fresh and fully stocked and distribute essentials like diapers and groceries at our local Food Pantry which is open to our communities daily.


We’ve made it easy and amazingly affordable to come serve with us in Los Angeles!

We’ve had so many great teams come out to join us and serve Los Angeles, and they’ve left with a renewed sense of passion and purpose!

“I have partnered with the Dream Center three different times. Each time has been incredible for our high school students.  Every time my students have returned from a week at the Dream Center, they feel a renewed sense of Jesus in their lives and want to make an impact in His name in our community.”

Matt Kelly

Student Pastor, The Summit Church

“I have been coming to the L.A. Dream Center since 2014 to serve on Short Term Missions. Participating in Skid Row outreaches and getting to help with Kidz JAM are especially life-giving to me. The Dream Center takes the Gospel truth of loving God and neighbor and puts it into practice every day. “

Pastor David Powers

Columbia Presbyterian Church, Columbia PA

“I loved my time serving with the Los Angeles Dream Center. Their Short Term Missions program is a perfect blend of training and practical, hands-on ministry. I saw the students in our group transform, step out of their comfort zone, and leave their week with a whole new perspective.”

BJ McBride

Domestic Coordinator, Joshua Expeditions
