Every Saturday, we head out to local neighborhoods, providing simple acts of service while sharing God’s love and the Gospel message.
Grab a Rake and Hit the Streets!
Adopt-A-Block is the very first outreach initiated by the St. Louis Dream Center. It began in 2000 as volunteers hit the streets of North St. Louis each Saturday armed with rakes, lawnmowers, trash bags, and gifts. They cleaned up the neighborhood and served the people. But most importantly, they built lasting relationships with their neighbors.
Loving God. Serving Others.
The Adopt-A-Block program is an outreach that demonstrates God’s unconditional love to the St. Louis community through practical acts of service. These acts of service range anywhere from lawn care, to delivering toys at Christmas, to home repair, to simply playing games with neighborhood children.
The vision of Adopt-A-Block is to build long-term relationships with the people living in the community. As we serve each week, we believe that God is creating supernatural change and making a lasting impact in the lives of each person with whom we come into contact.
Our ultimate goal—an entire city transformed by the spirit of revival, one city block at a time!
