RalEIgh Dream Center


Join the Movement & Give Back


Rooted Church regularly partners with Raleigh Dream Center. RDC exists to bring hope and restoration through the message of the Gospel for people in the Triangle area.  Raleigh Dream Center is a Christian-based, volunteer driven organization providing social services and community programs to homeless, abused and impoverished high risk youth, individuals and families.  We partner with local churches to CONSISTENTLY provide resources to under-privileged communities and reach out to those individuals in substance abuse, physical abuse, experiencing homelessness, participating in gangs, or other circumstances.
