Rev. Dito's passion for community outreach has been evident in his life since 9/11, when his family and community were greatly impacted by that national tragedy. Since then, he's organized community outreaches during Hurricane Katrina, Irene and most notably-Hurricane Sandy. His heart has always been to launch a
"Dream Center" whereas the entire community can
come together to care for, love, help and support one another. The
Pandemic of COVID19 has certainly catapulted that vision to be a reality.
