The Dreamers Co.
Who We Are
The Dreamers Company is a non-profit organization focused on making renaissance a reality in Washington, Pennsylvania through fostering individual dreams, cultivating needle moving initiatives, and spearheading community collaborations.
The Dreamers are a group of passionate and energetic volunteers dedicated to the revitalization of Washington’s residential and commercial real estate inventory.
These initiatives simultaneously benefit the city of Washington, while instilling critical workplace skills such as leadership, teamwork, work ethic, and hands-on trades for the young volunteers working on these projects.
Play Washington is a program focused on the revitalization of local playgrounds. By bringing in new mulch and replacing old, hazardous equipment, the Dreamers are striving to bring positive activity back to these family-friendly spaces with activities such as sports tournaments and community block parties.
BLOCK BY BLOCK
Block by Block is a 9-month neighborhood revitalization effort that occurs March – November each year to repair and beautify properties in Washington neighborhoods. This effort promotes positive psychological impacts on the citizens living in these areas.
Renovations for Dreamers Headquarters are well underway! In the Fall of 2018, the former Immaculate Conception convent located on North Franklin St. was purchased by the Dreamers. Built in 1960, this 15,000 sq ft lot will be converted into a multifunctional community center and preeminent event venue complete with a full kitchen, office and classroom space, an incubator for emerging businesses, and a rooftop garden and patio.
