Mission: We pick up the pieces of broken lives of at-risk youth to meet their emotional and spiritual needs - enabeling them to turn the tide of destructive behavior by providing educational enrichment programs to prevent crime and overcome problems of drug and alcohol abuse, juvenile delinquency, teen pregnancy, the school drop-out rate, and teen suicide. Most of the youth we serve are fatherless or have a mom working two jobs. Many have no guidence from a parent and end up in jail or on the streets of our cities.
Target demographics: at-risk youth and the homeless in group homes, detention centers and orphanages
Direct beneficiaries per year: over 1,000 students
Geographic areas served: Dallas Texas and throughout the US
Programs: crime prevention and spiritual development programs including one-on-one mentoring, workshops, and recreational activities. Youth (ages 10 - 18) are provided referrals to job opportunities, positive youth groups, a church, or a school of higher education. With community support we provide Christmas activities and gifts to youth with special needs. Most of our youngsters are fatherless and from low incoming families. We serve more than 1,000 children a year.Please see www.daretodream-dallas.org

Jan and Dare to Dream are one of a kind. I was a former member of the advisory board and have watched the amazing work the foundation has done for several years. This is a charity that truly makes a difference in our comunity and the lives of at risk youth.
