Our show runs Monday--Friday (11pm EST) and is hosted by Laurie Ann Smith, Donna Kshir, Star Myers & Trina Davidson: www.blogtalkradio.com/dreamcatchers Since our founding in 2007, Dreamcatchers has relied on the support of the individuals, supporters and sponsors who have provided financial contributions each year. In addition to the countless of hours provided by our highly dedicated team of Board of Directors, Regional Directors and Volunteers who unselfishly dedicate their time and energy, daily, to educate the public by hosting online seminars, posting child abuse headlines, BlogTalk Radio Shows, hosting a 24 hour hotline and 24 hour help service, and providing vital resources to enable a full recovery and rebuild the lives of those affected by abuse.
Target demographics: Abused & neglected children ~ Worldwide Our hope is to further serve the public, educate parents and caregivers, and support survivors of emotional, physical and sexual abuse. There are millions of children suffering in silence, living in shame, and fearing for their lives. We know firsthand, their pain is real. We believe all children were created to be happy, healthy and loved. It is our duty at Dreamcatchers for Abused Children to protect and be a voice for the world’s children.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Community Outreach Program: Dreamcatchers for Abused Children was able to create and maintain a “24-hour online help” service available to men, women, teens and children in need of assistance, resources, emergency or crisis through email. A team of DFAC mentors worked around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to maintain this “online help” service to assist and help men, women, teens and children in need of assistance, resources, emergency or crisis. To date, this program has been extremely successful, answering and providing value and vital assistance, reaching 35-100 people per day. Dreamcatchers answers hundreds of emails and phone calls a day which are handled amongst the board members, regional directors and volunteers. We reach out and assist victims and survivors through our many networking sites, provide resources to churches, schools, college professors, LEO's, and many others public businesses.

I am exceedingly happy with the way Dreamcatchers For Abused Children uses social media to bring abuse to light. The news alerts and updates show that abuse can not be hidden any longer and that it still exists.

I was Abused as a Child and know only too well the issues. Dreamcatchers is an awesome organization and has been helping in the efforts of getting awareness of Child Abuse out to the public!! They have excellent programs to help teach parents about alternatives to abuse and also helping children to know when & how to report the abuse. They've developed curriculum for the educators of our children to help them to identify an abused child, etc. There is not enough room to tell you ALL that they do to help protect our children!! I am Proud to be part of this organization in anyway they need me!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do nothing!!
