Mission: The Dream Builders Project is a Los Angeles-based charity whose mission is to give back to the community, make a difference in the lives of others, and impact the world at large in a positive way. Through digital and social media outreach, charity events and galas, and fundraising campaigns, The DBP focuses on raising awareness about many of humanity’s key social issues including child abuse and neglect, poverty, homelessness, and severe illness and disease. The Dream Builders Project is not restricted to any particular group or cause, but is purely dedicated to the improvement of humanity. We pursue this mission through action-based events and campaigns, such as: -Charity events that bring hundreds of volunteers together to offer relief and aid to a group of people within the community. -An Annual Charity Gala benefiting the Audrey Hepburn CARES Center at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. -Building relationships with orphanages and care centers to offer our services and assistance, including donations of food, clothing items, sanitary equipment and toys, as well as infrastructure repairs and remodeling. -Community involvement by staff and volunteers at social occasions and other charity events to support and further the outreach of other worthy causes. -Spreading public awareness of key social issues through an extensive database of contacts, social media campaigns, and an internationally recognized hashtag, #DBPLA.

Results: -$1,000,000 raised to aid and raise awareness for a wide range of issues such as child abuse, homeless adults and children, and those affected by severe illness and disease. -More than 200 survival care packages filled and delivered to the homeless of LA -500 kids supplied with back-to-school supplies -1 orphanage remodeled -200 orphans supplied with clothes, toys, and educational supplies -$100,000 in donations and sponsorships raised to host the second annual A Brighter Future for Children Charity gala benefiting the Audrey Hepburn CARES Center at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. -13 Charity Flash Mobs -1500 volunteers -More than 120 local and national corporate sponsors donating items

This non profit in my opinion is changing the world of charity. By acting as a charity for charities the dream builders project is able to facilitate more events and more impact in a much more efficient manner then ever previously accomplished. Dollar for dollar they invest 100% of all proceeds and donation directly to all their causes. Their leadership is outstanding, with a staff so gifted and skilled, led by CEO and founder Mayer Dahan, who's ability and hard work are what seemingly have a made this nonprofit into the juggernaut it is today. They are supporters of dozens of nonprofits including kids in distress situations, Habitat for Humanity, lupus LA, Los Angeles Children's Hospital and many many more receiving benefits like grants and full-scale galas to facilitate their growth and progress. The Dreambuilders project is currently supporting the homeless community, young students in need, orphanages throughout the nation and outside this country, and abused and neglected children all over the US, human trafficking and many more.

Dream Builder's Project really focuses on helping smaller charities that don't get as much notice/representation and/or funding and I think that's really great. They are able to reach out to every part of Los Angeles locally and to every one that's doing something important no matter how small and help build their dream a little bit bigger!

I have volunteered with my family for this organization. The care package event was so much fun and a great way for my kids to get involved. It's been difficult for me to find a nonprofit to get my children involved in (ages 5 & 7) and I have happy to get them working hands on for a quick event giving back to our community!

I have attended numerous events over the past 3 years and I must say that I love this charity! The staff members are so kind, welcoming and warm-hearted that they make you feel just at home. I especially appreciate Sophie, the director of events, with her genuinely charitable spirit. In addition to their superb staff, their cause is noble and their outreach is broad. I proudly represent this charity and what they stand for!!

Interning with The Dream Builders Project has been one of my most worthwhile experiences so far. I have been with The DBP team for almost a year and I have learned so much about myself and gained an abundance of experience. Being a college grad I needed an organization that will give me the tools and self confidence to become successful in my future endeavors. Here at The DBP we are more than just a "charity for charities" but we believe and actually make a difference in our communities! The team I work with is very passionate and hardworking and love what we do here. We are just beginning and excited for the opportunities that will come our way.

I volunteered for the first time for this non-profit at their Care Package event for the homeless, and then again at their Back to School event. Both experiences left me feeling like I first handedly made a positive impact on my community.
The Dream Builders Project channels their efforts directly into the Los Angeles community, and gives those that live in the community a chance to do the same. Thanks Dream Builders!!

This place has great potential but has a hard time following through and producing real change, I'm not sure how they choose their causes but they have way too much going on for the small staff to handle. Honestly feels more like it exists to benefit the company that owns it, probably tax wise and for a good overall corporate image, not to mention the CEO really tries to sell you on how good of a person he is (when nobody's asking) and it all just feels so.. shady? Not sure how it has so many great reviews.

The Dream Builders Project is one of the most impactful charities I have had the pleasure of working with. There are countless ways in which DBPLA is making a difference -
*The "Flash Mobs" that help the homeless and supply children in need with school supplies
*Volunteering at orphanages in Tijuana and helping to build houses for those in need
*The amazing "A Brighter Future for Children Gala" to benefit The Audrey Hepburn C.A.R.E.S. Center at Childrens Hospital Los Angles
*The campaign to end Human Trafficking and Sex Slavery.

The Dream Builders Project works tirelessly to better our community, help those in need, and change the world. I am honored and proud to be affiliated with such an amazing organization.

I came for the poker tournament beginning of March for the first time. On top of having a great time, I found the videos and brochures on the dream builder project very well done and very informative. The organization of the event was a perfect mix of making people aware of nowadays challenges and a well organized, fun event... Big thanks to everyone involved for putting up such an event and everything they do throughout the year
