The Dreams

Help impact and inspire the lives of these wonderful teens! We are looking for Dream Makers to fulfill the dreams below. Dream Makers can be an individual, neighborhoods, businesses, rotary clubs, church groups, families, fitness group, or pledge your birthday instead of receiving gifts. These dreams serve a variety of purposes that may include laptops for careers and education, constructive hobbies that these youth never got a chance to try, and even others are things many would consider basic needs, such as new clothes and internet access.

Why We Do It

To explain why we do what we do, there is really no better way than to introduce you to a few of the kids whose lives are so wonderfully impacted by the caring and generosity of people like you. Please take a few minutes to watch the video below.

About Dream Makers

Dream Makers supports older youth who are aging out of the foster care system. Every year, 26,000 teens age out of the foster care system without a family to call their own. These are children who have been removed from their biological families, due to no fault of their own, but rather having experienced neglect or abuse. These youth are left without a loving support system or resources to help them reach their full potential. When you become a Dream Maker, you have the opportunity to let one of these youth know that someone cares and they are not alone. Your support can give them the confidence they need to help change their future.

SPOTLIGHT

Congratulations to Anna!

She spent 6 years in the foster care system before aging out. She currently works at a daycare and has future goals of going to college to get a business degree. She has 3 little daughters and loves being their mom.  Anna was in need of a car that would fit her family. She struggled to get to work and taking the bus was too difficult with the children.

Jeffrey and Allison Leatherman reached out to Dream Makers and wanted to donate their SUV to one of the youth in our program.  This was the perfect car for Anna and she is SO grateful for the generosity of the people in her community that stepped up to support her and let her know they care.

A VERY special thanks to:

Leatherman family for donating the car.
Ryan & Melissa Schaefer for purchasing brand new tires for the car.
Greg Gebhardt at Davidson-Gebhardt Chevrolet of Loveland for donating the labor to put on the tires and getting them at cost.
Eric and Macy Keen for paying for her car insurance for 6 months so she can stabilize her finances with these new bills.
