There is a "Genie" inside all of us just
waiting to be released so it can fulfill our dreams.
Empowering WOMEN AND CHILDREN with tools to end homelessness from our society!
Every person deserves to sleep in their own bed and living safely in their own home.
Dreams - a 501(c)3 public
non-profit foundation since 1998, has committed to breaking the cycle
of homelessness from our society.
Education is key to solving this challenge. Through our proactive educational and training programs we are able to influence positive change and transform the lives of women and children at risk.
*Lack of positive role models and mentors is the Number 2 reason why students drop out of school."
"2005-2006- It estimated that 1.5 million children experienced homelessness at least once that year, and says the problem is surely worse now because of the foreclosures and job losses of the deepening recession. These kids are the innocent victims, yet it seems somehow or other they get left out," said the center's president, Dr. Ellen Bassuk. "Why are they America's outcasts?"
"Empowering women, saves children's lives - and the impact is too important to ignore."
"The lives of women are inextricably linked to the well-being of children."
According to Unicef Report
"The teenage years are a time when teens are fast approaching adulthood, but they still need adult guidance. According to Professor of Psychology at Illinois State University Laura Berk, strong adult role models help promote positive behavior and responsibility in teens."
