The Dakota Center’s mission is Building Character and Connecting Community.  Our vision is being a leading center in Dayton to consistently build community across generations.  We accomplish this by educating the whole person, provide a safe and trusted environment, serve all with charity, and awaken full human potential.
The guiding light of the Dakota Center remains our founder, Fr. Philp Hoelle, SM (1912-2005).  Father Hoelle believed in serving others.  He listened rather than preached, encouraged people to meet their potential and treated the great and the small with dignity and respect.  He combined his passion for learning with the wisdom of virtue in the service of other.
