BENEFITING: Dream It Forward Foundation Inc
In the Atlanta Metro area there are almost 2 Million children 18 and younger, with over 207,000 of them living in households at or below the federal poverty level. Twenty percent of the youth don't have caring adults in their lives, 300,000 school-aged youth are left unsupervised after school, and 55.8% qualify for free and reduced lunch with 1 in 4 of them living in food insecure households. The Dream It Forward Foundation addresses the needs of all the identified at-risk youth by providing free mentoring services and free food programs, providing leadership camps, and summer employment. We love going across the 9 Atlanta counties supporting every child we can, but it gets hard working in other people's space on other's time, so now it's time to have a place we can call home. We are raising funds to pay for a facility that will house all of our mentoring and food programs, and give our Dreamers a place to fulfill all of their dreams. We want our programs to remain free and affordable for youth, single-mothers, and families that need them, and that's why this is campaign in so important. Help us, help youth have a place to DREAM!
