Review for Dare to Dream Children's Foundation, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known Jan Tennyson and her work with the children's foundation since 2000. As she and the teams she trains reach out to youth in detention centers, orphanages and the foster care system, I have seen the effect her message of faith, hope and love has brought to hundreds, perhaps thousands. She inspires and builds self esteem in youth who see no hope, have received little love and possess little self esteem. Her teams share from their heart and there is always a positive response by the youth who see someone who genuinely cares about them. This organization has reached out for 20 years to lift up disadvantaged youth. I am proud to be a friend of Jan Tennyson's and to have had the privilege of volunteering in Dare to Dream.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the faces and hearing the comments from youth who so appreciate people coming to encourage, inspire and help build them up.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the atmosphere of sincere love and concern demonstrated by the founder and the other volunteers I have met.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Awesome!!! Everyone I have met and interacted with sincerely care about helping youth reach their potential.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach thousands more youth!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
