About Us



At the heart of the Dream Center it is our desire to rescue those who have been enslaved by hunger, homelessness, poverty, and human trafficking, and other life controlling issues. We do this by providing hope, empowerment, and the love of Christ both in word and deed in our four focus areas- Children, Community, Discipleship, and Hunger Relief. We seek to meet urgent physical and spiritual needs through our many outreach and discipleship programs.


The mission of the Pittsburgh Dream Center is to directly impact the issues that afflict Pittsburgh communities by reconnecting people to God and a community of support by providing free human services that address immediate and long-term needs in the area of hunger, poverty, homelessness, education, and human trafficking.


The Pittsburgh Dream Center (PDC) started in 2011 as founders, Gary & Amanda Brougher heard God speak to their heart to start a Dream Center to reach their home city. Gary & Amanda along with their four children in 2011 pulled up to a street corner in McKeesport, PA and launched the PDC with the Adopt-A-Block outreach. Since that time the PDC continues to reach out to the residents of that block along with five other outreaches including a church service. The PDC is able to minister to over a thousand people each month with the help of their faithful staff and volunteers.
