The Crystal Ridge Dream Center is a Christian faith-based charitable organization, that serves the needs of people in our local communities of Crystal Beach and Ridgeway, as well as the greater Fort Erie area. Our mission is to awaken the hearts and dreams, and to transform the lives of people in our community.
The founding members of the Dream Center include Cathy Weitner and her husband John, as well as Kathy Sloggett and her two daughters, Gina Sloggett and Annaliese Vetere.
We recently purchased the Victory Church on Derby Road in downtown Crystal Beach. We are currently doing renovations and adding supplies and equipment. Once we open, here are some of the programs we plan to offer:
- Youth Impact Program
There will be a variety of things to do for youth between the ages of 7 to 17. These include after school programs, music and movie nights, a variety of games, and group outings. We will have computers available for those who do not have a computer at home.
-Moms Supporting Moms
A community outreach participant-based program for moms and children aged 0-6 years, that desires to see moms supported and healthy in all areas of life, for herself and her children and to see children lifted out of poverty and supported from infancy in a healthy, thriving home and community.
- Community Dinners
We will be setting up a soup kitchen and plan to serve a dinner to those in need every Saturday.
-Foundations For Living
This is a Christian study program designed to provide a solid foundation to help people reach their goals.
Over time we plan on offering support services for mental health and addictions, as well as life Skills programs
From the Leadership team - Thanks very much for your contribution and support!
