About I Have A Dream Foundation - Dallas

Location:

3120 Inwood Rd, Dallas, TX 75235, US

Mission Statement

The "I Have A Dream" Foundation's mission is to empower children from under-resourced communities to succeed in school, college, and career by providing academic, social, and emotional support from elementary school through college, along with postsecondary tuition assistance.

Description

At the "I Have A Dream" Foundation, we provide individualized social, emotional, and academic support to young people from under-resourced communities, along with guaranteed tuition support for the post-secondary path of their dreams. From first grade to a first job, we stand by our Dreamers.

We empower young people to dream their most ambitious dreams and ignite their innate potential to achieve.

The "I Have A Dream" Foundation works to ensure that all children have the opportunity to pursue higher education, fulfill their potential, and achieve their dreams. We empower children ("Dreamers") in under-served communities to graduate from high school by equipping them with the skills and knowledge to succeed in the postsecondary path of their choice, along with guaranteed tuition support to remove financial barriers. Dreamers are not only empowered to choose the academic and life trajectory most fulfilling for them, their success has a broader impact on their families and the generations that follow.

IHDF works with Dreamers after school, on the weekends, and over the summer for over ten years, developing long-term relationships with Dreamers and their families. We provide academic and social emotional support to Dreamers, equipping them with the confidence and life skills needed to pursue their most ambitious dreams.
