Changing Lives

Jami Allensworth

On Friday afternoons staff and volunteers from the St. Louis Dream Center take to nearby streets and neighborhoods to visit the children and their parents who live in the local apartment complexes. Each visit is an opportunity to build relationships within the community, meet physical and spiritual needs, and invite each child to attend the KidZjam ministry the next day. Visiting rain or shine, the team at the Dream Center has made over 3,300 contacts through their visits so far this year! 

Five years ago Jasmine met our staff during a visit and soon after began attending KidZjam with her brother Devion and sister Shamika. Jasmine was shy at first, but over the years has opened up her life to the staff and volunteers who faithfully make KidZjam happen every week. Jasmine no longer lives in the apartments where she first met our staff. However, she is sure to come back to the area and stay with her mom every Friday night so she can walk her brother and sister to KidZjam on Saturday morning. She now not only knows how important it is for her to keep going to the Dream Center and its events, but also for her siblings and cousins too! 

The St. Louis Dream Center is reaching Jasmine, and hundreds of children like her, for Christ each week through the KidZjam Ministry!
