Dreamcatchers is doing great work. I fully support their advocacy efforts 100%. Dreamcatchers is a great group of people that work very well together, for a common cause of protecting children from harm, and have the same interest of changing the laws to better protect children from harm, as we do. We can always trust the information that we get from Dreamcatchers as being accurate, and we can always trust them to be there to help when needed.

I am a volunteer and I have been blessed with knowing so many wonderful people that anytime I have a small issue I know that there is someone that will be able to listen to me and advise me. Being a volunteer I want to spread the word to everyone to Stop Child Abuse. And be able to educate others about the signs of abuse,and that there is help out there.There is also help for the victims of abuse. So thank you for giving me that opportunity to be part of a wonderful organization.

Gained alot of knowledge. Although I am new as a volunteer I have really changed as a person. My heart grew alot bigger than it was.

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

Do nothing..........The organization has done more than I have expected. I also feel that in 2011 more will be done. Our organization is growing every day. We also will be blessed with good new volunteers.
