Overview

Self-reported by organization

Our vision is to give neglected adolescents and young adults the stepping stones to escape shelters, broken homes, and unfortunate situations. We strive for success in fulfilling the dreams of those whom, throughout childhood have had their dreams shattered or lacked support along the way. Our innovative programs focuses on adolescents and young adults from broken, abusive and neglectful homes, (“teens of the streets”) that lack guidance or supervision. Nurturing Dreams Foundation will provide access to the tools necessary to improve the conditions of these youths, by providing support and available community resources to overcome unstable and hostile environments.
