This Is "Antonio Dover" 

"There is a place where we belong. There is a place where the sun always shines through the rain. A place where we are forever changed."
Author, Dreamer... Antonio Dover

Our Dream and Mission...

"This is who I am the man behind the God given dream and my dream involved helping those who have lost their dream. If the road you have taken has twists and turns that have somehow thrown you off course, you can still finish well". Some have gone from their 'original world' to the 'one world away' or the disenfranchised and forgotten places people live but not in a home. When I was homeless I had no place to retreat . Still I had a dream on the inside of me that once released called me back home to the place where others needed to find their dream. Here is where I am able to become my dream." Antonio Dover

One of the hardest things in life is to give what you don’t have. Yet in spite of this fact, everyone wants to receive what they don’t have. Then when we’ve finally gotten what we’ve always wanted, it sometimes becomes more of a challenge to let go of it when necessary.

If ever you find yourself in need of true love, this book will help you to identify with what everyone wants in life. 

"Am I Good Enough"

You don't have to be rich or beautiful to achieve success in life. You don't have to have a lot of friends to know who you are. God has given all of mankind something that will cause us to succeed called a gift. All that you need is a dream in order to stand alone. Give life and you will have life.

Once in a lifetime, someone enters not only your life but makes an indelible impression in the lives of others. That person is Mr. Antonio Dover. When Mr. Dover first entered the doors of the Spartanburg Soup Kitchen a few years ago, he brought with him a spiritual recipe of life, faith, inspiration and hope. In fact, because of his rapport with over five hundred and fifty guests, Mr. Dover was responsible for a suicidal individual to receive immediate counseling in order for him to be alive for the next day and thereafter until God calls him home. His presence allows storms to be calmed and the love of God to be shown and shared with others. Psalms 41:1 describes Mr. Dover's passion for the down trodden... "Blessed is he who has regard for the poor." Mr. Dover's book will challenge others to step out of their element and pass on their blessings to others.

Antonio Dover is truly an inspiration to his local community and a shining example of the extremely talented and motivating individuals that are found serving the homeless community. Upon navigating his way out of years of experiencing homelessness and dismal poverty, Mr. Dover immediately found his place among his previous peers. Aside from his current career or perhaps supplemental to, he uplifts all those around him. He volunteers with several organizations and sponsors individuals eager to escape homelessness and the learned hopelessness that often comes with years of struggles and slammed doors. Reading his poetry is certainly an emotional experience that will stir angst and awe from members of all spectrums of society; the rich or the poor, the invested or not so interested. He gives our community hope and the homeless a reason for a tomorrow. He advocates for a better future for all of us. I appreciate his work and his words and I know that you will too.
