Serving Kern County Children and Veterans


Dream Center

The Dream Center is a place where emancipated Foster Youth
over 18 years of age, who have no families to support them, can
find services. The Westchester Kiwanis Club recognized a need
for additional support to help these young adults overcome
hardships that were not of their making. Working with the
management of the Dream Center, the Club determined that
providing job skills and continuing education were important to
their growth and independence. The Westchester Kiwanis Club
has provided job skill training, gift cards for bus passes to job
interviews, and funds to provide new clothing for school and
work. In addition, the Club purchased a washer and dryer so
the youth could wash their clothing, a high chair for children
of the youth attending the center, and provided food and other
supplies to prepare meals at the center.
