"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
Joseph Dreams is a (501c3) nonprofit organization supporting and educating at risk populations in the city of Chester, Pennsylvania. We are so grateful to have the opportunity to promote a Culture of Health in our com- munity through evidence based programs and education that supports healthy lifestyle choices that will facilitate greater physical, mental and spiritual well-being to our youth, adults and their families. This organization developed out of a need for residents to see and hear positive messages within our community. Unfortunately negative influences are present and can often come from the news, social media, poor school environments, television, radio and even from our own homes. In addition, as the family unit continues to break down in our society, it contributes to further problems such as troubled youth, domestic violence, teen pregnancy, street crime, imprisonment and poor health outcomes in all areas. Therefore it is important that there are support systems thriving in our communities to influence families to live and chose healthy lifestyles that promote longevity.
Healthy Workshops bring awareness to certain chronic conditions that plague at risk populations and impact our health and well-being. Chronic conditions such as Diabetes, Hypertension, Heart Disease, Stroke, Obesity and other topics are discussed with community members as well as ways to reduce risk factors. Participants have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in conversation that can promote healthier lifestyle choices. Joseph Dreams also support network
partners that promote health and wellness through education and other initiatives that empower individuals to take responsibility for their own health.
Spiritual Enrichment involves the discussion of basic foundational biblical principles to learn about God and His nature. Life lessons learned through the study of men and women in bible history and relating them to our present day lives as well as putting lessons learned to action can be life changing. By building and utilizing our faith in God, we look forward to successful outcomes and this can offers hope! Our methods of teaching scripture assist in the building of character, self-esteem, healthy relationships, serving others through missions and growing spiritually through Jesus Christ; the utlimate hope of this world.
