About
Achieving Dreams

In these times of families struggling to make ends meet, it is difficult to balance the necessities. Often times the arts, music, sports,and educational opportunities are sacrificed. Years of participation in these activities can come to an abrupt stop because of financial woes. This can snuff out hopes, dreams, and ambitions for bright or even brilliant careers.

 

Achieving Dreams is a vessel for reaching out to the community to serve a mission of hope and offer youth and adults an opportunity to continue in organized activities and education that enlightens and improves the human condition.

Volunteers of Achieving Dreams are people willing to band together to help these youth and adults succeed. Our program is entirely comprised of volunteers. All proceeds are focused on our mission to help families afford meaningful and positive experiences in organized activities and education.
