Awards and Recognition

An award is something given to a person or persons to recognize their excellence in a certain field. At The Centre for Dreams we recognize one’s achievement on a daily basis, whether it be a member’s accomplishment, a random act of kindness, community support and partnership or corporate sponsorship.

The act of volunteering contributes to a more cohesive society by building trust and reciprocity among citizens. The volunteers that give of their time and energy to The Centre for Dreams inspire us with their dedication, commitment and efforts. Recipients of these award reveal to each of us that as good as our individual efforts may be, together we can achieve even greater success.
