Our Individualized Support
“It's second nature to me now that I don't quit when something hard comes up. I just trudge through it, I just push through it. That's something I can clearly delineate from 'I Have A Dream'”
Bobby Daniels, Atlanta Dreamer
“One of my fondest memories of being a Dreamer was our annual camping trip. The second trip was quite the adventure. We made shirts about what we survived, from thunderstorms to spiders in the bathroom and much more. I just remember it being such a wholesome moment where we all enjoyed each other's presence--playing sports, roasting marshmallows, and swimming in the lake.”
Harun Hasib, NY Dreamer
“There are so many people who care about you and want you to succeed. There are so many people who've helped me on my journey thus far. I've been able to attend workshops, career panels, volunteer, and, above all, have a community of my own.”
Haniel Morquecho, Boulder, CO Dreamer
