Mission statement

Provide health and hope for people working to rebuild their dreams.

Statement of faith

The Board of Directors and all staff at the Dream Centers of Colorado Springs affirm the Nicene Creed as their corporate Statement of Beliefs.

Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And the one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and they third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures' and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

And I believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church, I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sin; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Dream Centers' founding vision continues today - to identify and fill the greatest gaps in care-the points of pain-for people suffering in the Pikes Peak region. As a result, our two pillar programs, The Women's Clinic and Mary's Home, were formed.

Now, Dream Centers residents at Mary's Home and patients at the Women's Clinic are rebuilding their dreams. They are becoming hopeful, helpful, and healthier to create a better life for their families, and build a better community for all.
