About the Dream Center of Tampa

The Dream Center of Tampa is a residential community center located in Ybor City. Our vision is to transform lives in our community through caring relationships. We host after school programs for students grades K-12 Monday through Thursday and a monthly Adopt A Block outreach in the surrounding area which includes, serving seniors, street clean-up and beautification projects.

The Dream Center also serves the community through large community events such as our Annual Back to School Bash and Christmas Shoppe.

The Dream Center also maintains a partnership with local elementary, middle and high schools through after-school clubs and adopt-a-school initiatives.


Pastor Craig Altman, senior pastor at Grace Family Church (GFC) in Lutz, Florida, founded the Dream Center of Tampa in November 2010. Having been a youth pastor for many years before starting GFC, Pastor Craig has a deep desire and concern to reach youth. Simply stated, he values children tremendously and wanted to reach out to youth living in a high-risk area of Tampa.
