Building lives; transforming communities
Dreambuilders centre4change began in 2020 during Covid-19. It has it’s roots from 2013 when Destiny Centre Church, now Dreambuilders Church Melbourne, undertook a bold plan to start a local mission to change lives for good. As well as giving to overseas causes Dreambuilders Transformations, a campus of Transformations Program
Australia, was started in Melbourne’s west. Transformations is a residential rehab program for men. During the last 12 months we helped and supported 40 individuals and their families in this program. We look forward to continuing to change communities through this program.
During 2019 planning on how to start a day program for women began. We were about
to launch the day program and Covid-19 hit which meant putting the day program on
hold. Not to be beaten our change4life online program for women was born under the
Dreambuilders centre4change umbrella. In March 2020 we had our first intake and the
initial participants are still doing well. We are looking forward to building many more
lives with this program.
Covid-19 proved to be an opportunity for Dreambuilders centre4change with the second
program to come out of the time of isolation - our Stepup4youth program. After
completing the Transformations residential program, Jacob became the house
supervisor in our Transformations program and he was at a stage where he wanted to
give back to the community. Jacob is a young guy who changed his life and wanted the
same for others – stepup4youth was born. This program is designed for people 16 – 24
whose lives are out of control.
Over the next few months we hope to introduce a day program where men and women
of all ages, whose lives are out of control, can come to Dreambuilders centre4change for
healing, recovery and growth. We plan to offer a range of community activities via our
recreational and book club programs along with love and care.
We have fully trained professionals that deliver the Programs along with numerous
volunteers to assist in recovery and healing. Our volunteers include graduates from our
Programs who are giving back to the community that saved their lives. We have
partnerships with local doctors, psychologists, counsellors, mediators and health care
providers to ensure that each journey to recovery is personalised.
All the Dreambuilders centre4care programs are faith-based. We are a not-for-profit, fully
tax deductible, registered charity.
