TheĀ Tulsa Dream CenterĀ is a community center that strategically provides programs and services to the people of north Tulsa and operates to improve health, implement education and create opportunities for men, women and children.

Since opening in 2000, the center has continued to empower and equip the community of north Tulsa to rise above and foster sustainable change. In 2017 alone, the Tulsa Dream Center reached over 40,000 community members.

One of the primary areas of focus at the Tulsa Dream Center is education. Research has shown the ability to read and the hope of a successful future are directly linked. The center is confident that education will be the pipeline that breaks generational poverty.

In 2011, the Tulsa Dream Center created the Literacy Is For Everyone (LIFE) Program, an afterschool and summer reading program targeted for at-risk children.

This program has proved to significantly elevate the reading levels and learning abilities of the boys and girls in north Tulsa.

Each child is given a unique, one-on-one teaching environment, ensuring that every student is receiving the exact personalized assistance necessary for the individual.
