Dare to Dream Children's Foundation
August 10, 2009

I am recently retired from the Adult Probation Dept.after 27 years on the job.For almost 17 of those 27years I have known Jan Tennyson and the Dare to Dream Foundation.I know what the Foundation has done and means in the lives of young people of Dallas County and what Jan means to the Foundation. I have gone with Jan and sometimes with other volunteers to speak to young people incarcerated in the Detentation Centers throughout the city,and each time,I have gotten back more than I gave.Jan help me understand that my purpose/my ministry was to see that no child would end up in the Adult system. Therefore,for all the speeches I made and parades I marched,I focused on that premise. Jan has been my inspiration and in a way,my rock.Because as I discovered years back,just starting as an Officer,instead of one(1)person trying to make the differance with 100 people on a caseload,I found 100 people to make the differance with the one person,one-at-a-time. THANKS Jan and the whole entire Dare to Dream family.
