Salem Dream Center

Effective Education for All

In 2004 a group of people took a walk through the Edgewater Neighborhood of Salem, Oregon, moving into a community plagued by poverty, hunger, gangs, violence and darkness. From that first stroll through the neighborhood, the Salem Dream Center (SDC) was born. becoming a 501c3 in 2010. The vision of the SDC is to empower and equip vulnerable, at risk and disadvantaged children and youth living in Marion and Polk Counties so that they can realize their personal and community potential through programs and activities offering education, mentorship, food sustainability and community responsibility.
