Dreamcatchers for Abused Children Overview
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.
