Addressing Critical Needs

Located in the heart of an area ravaged by poverty, lack of resources, and income disparity, the Tulsa Dream Center focuses on addressing the area’s critical needs through programs designed to produce outcome-based results. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has designated it an EnVision Center due to its vital programs which address the four critical areas of life: economic empowerment, educational advancement, health and wellness, and character and leadership.

Fighting Generational Poverty

Founded in 1999 by Pastor Billy Joe Daugherty of Victory Christian Center, the Tulsa Dream Center opened to bring hope and healing to the North Tulsa community. While TDC has grown and our programs are much more expansive than 20 years ago, the heart behind what we do and how we serve remains the same. We are committed to bringing well-rounded solutions that lead to the empowerment of each individual that we touch in order to build a brighter future for our community.

Uniting a City

Through strategic programs and partnerships, the Tulsa Dream Center has created diverse solutions to bring this diverse city together and expand the horizon of the North Tulsa community for lasting change.

This focus on providing educational opportunities, spurring economic growth, and expanding social service programs to break the cycle of poverty in North Tulsa is why the Tulsa Dream Center has been designated as an EnVision Center, one of only three in the state. Through HUD’s EnVision Center Initiative, the Tulsa Dream Center is providing a centralized hub for economic empowerment, educational advancement, health and wellness, and character and leadership so that the citizens in North Tulsa can build a stronger, healthier tomorrow.
