Dreams for Kids provides service, leadership and social opportunities for at-risk youth.
Founded in 1989, Dreams for Kids is a volunteer based, registered non-profit 501(c)(3) children’s charity that breaks down social barriers and end the isolation of at-risk youth. Dreams for Kids is empowering youth who live in poverty and those with disabilities, by uniting them with their peers, recognizing their abilities, and allowing their voices to be heard. The most isolated young people from every community are reminded they have something to give, and they are the solution-not the problem.
Dreams for Kids replaces charity with opportunity for at-risk youth through service, leadership and social activities and inspires them to fearlessly pursue their dreams and compassionately change the world.
To unite children of disability, race, religion, and socio-economic background and inspire them to realize their full potential and serve as active members of their communities and citizens of the world.
At the core of our programming is the empowerment of youth who live in poverty and those with disabilities. The heart of the approach is reminding each young person they have something to give, and then giving them opportunities to make a difference in the lives of others.
To break down the barriers of segregation, embrace the abilities and potential of an isolated population, and empower them by their paying it forward in such a way which changes their communities and transforms their lives.
