The Phoenix Dream Center is a volunteer driven nonprofit organization, which exists to serve the homeless, low-income, at risk youth and struggling individuals and families by providing resources, opportunities and supportive services to help them realize their dream of living a self-sufficient life.

Founded in 2006, the Phoenix Dream Center currently serves over 40,000 people each month. They have become best known for 2 things in our City; Their Community Outreaches and Housing Programs.
Twisted Tree Farm owners Janet and Larry Hischer have a history of working with the Dream Center to raise money on several occasions. In 2012 & 2013, miniature donkeys were auctioned off for a total of $38,000.00. This money went to building their family room for their residents and helped purchase vehicles to take foster kids to job interviews, doctor appointments, school, etc. Hischer notes that she feels as if “horses are her tool to help people in need” and in this instance it is the horse community that can help these people in need.
