Capstone Financial Group CEO Darin Pastor has served in management roles for over 25 years. In addition to his work, Darin Pastor supports several charities, including the Dream Center Los Angeles.

The Dream Center is a Christian organization that helps people through a variety of programs including rehabilitation programs, foster care, transitional housing, education and job skills training, counseling, and Bible studies. Since it was founded in 1994, the organization has built over 100 Dream Centers all over the world serving over 80,000 people every month.

Los Angeles’ Skid Row neighborhood has one of the largest populations of individuals who are homeless in the United States, with 60 percent of its residents living on the streets. Every Friday night, Dream Center volunteers reach out to individuals in this area with food, water, and resources. In 2010, 30 of those individuals left the neighborhood to join the discipleship program at the Dream Center, which involves a commitment of about a year that equips participants with the skills they need to succeed in their own lives and help others on their spiritual paths.
