Philly In Action
DREAM Philly’s first program site, at Cecil B. Moore Apartments, was launched in November, 2013. DREAM's second site, at Fairhill Apartments, opened in January of 2014 and a third site, Westpark Apartments in West Philadelphia, opened a few months later in March, 2014. In 2016, we opened our fourth site, at Beckett Gardens Apartments.
Today, our core programs are running strong and DREAM Philly is expecting to grow to reach more youth in the near future!
