“The Dream Centre”Northeast Corner of Kerr Street & Prince Charles Drive

 

Kerr Street Ministries (KSM), as part of our community, has been serving families, and children and youth at risk for over 12 years. Currently operating out of a converted underground parking garage and other local venues, KSM provides a number of adult, children and youth programs, including summer day camps, after school programs, youth mentorship, community meals, and a drop-in centre. Over 2,000 members of our community are served on a regular basis.As a result of increasing need in the community, particularly among our children and youth, and very limited space in which to provide services, KSM has embarked upon an ambitious plan. The “Dream Centre”, a 22,000 square foot community centre consisting of gymnasia, recreation space, professional services and administration, chapel and a drop-in centre, will provide a central location for all KSM services.

Because of the generous donation of land at the northeast corner of Kerr Street and Prince Charles Drive (former Sunoco gas station), construction has begun at the location and we hope to have the facility completed in 2010.
