About Longview Dream Center

The Longview Dream Center is focused on establishing programs that provide action steps to changing and enhancing the quality of life for our clients.

Our programs include providing basic needs such as hunger relief for citizens and senior citizens, free clothing for ALL, computer training, and simple acts of service to widows, single moms and special needs clients.




Pastor Thomas McDaniels is the Founder of The Longview Dream Center. For nearly 20 years Pastor Tom has fed the hungry, helped the hurting, and served in the community. He has an ardent burden to serve the Longview area with programs that will lift people out of poverty, depression and addiction.


The Longview Dream Center is a 501 C3 Organization. It is recognized by the IRS and all donations that comply with IRS regulations are tax deductible.

The Longview Dream Center has an existing Board of Directors and an Accountability Board. The Longview Dream Center is affiliated with the LA Dream Center but is autonomous in vision and receives no financial support from the Parent Ministry.

The entire budget of LDC is supported by the generous donations of individuals, churches, organizations and various businesses.


The Longview Dream Center is located at 803 Gilmer Road in Longview. The building is over 16,000 sq ft and is the perfect facility for the plans and programs offered through our organization.


Our world is in a state of crisis and constant change. The needs are overwhelming. We must take action to assist and bring change that will truly make a difference.


We will begin with an excellent staff and qualified leaders. A list of programs is listed below. We have a multiplicity of life-changing activities and excellent programs that provide skills and training.

Additional Information

LDC is a distribution center of donated items and a variety of programs that serve the individual and corporate needs of our city. Programs are both on going and others are seasonal. An example of a seasonal program would be Thanksgiving and Christmas. During these seasons LDC will focus on seasonal needs of the community.

Another example would be the beginning of the school year. During seasons like this LDC will hold a “back to school drive” to assist families with school supplies and a coat drive to benefit those without proper winter attire.
