Preventing Student Homelessness

At Dorm Room Dreamz L3C, we know some students just need a place to have Dreamzz! Housing hardships such as homelessness impact a student's learning capabilities and it takes a  Housing Counselor to create specialized College Housing Plans (CHPs) to successfully place students in housing environments that support Higher Education. Higher Education minus Housing Hardship = Success!  Dorm Room Dreamz L3C is more than just another student housing- it’s the placement for students with NO housing. We invite you to explore our dynamic and diverse community, and grow with us!

 

About DRDz

Higher Edu - Homeless = Success!

DRDz was created when a unmet need was realized. After years of assisting college students with supportive service and seeing all of the many challenges they faced including needs like SNAP (Supplement Nutrition Assistance Program), Food Pantry, Transportation, and Child Care, just to name a few; Housing remained the biggest challenge. Traditional shelters are not a option, as most are already full and not ideal for college students, therefore DRDz is created just for college students who  experience housing hardships such as evictions and homeless and need additional resources to remain enrolled.
