Precious Dreams Foundation
Did you know 50% of the homeless population spent time in the foster care system or that 4.2 million children and young adults experience homelessness in the United States each year?
The Precious Dreams Foundation (PDF) believes that all youth deserve the opportunity to SLEEP WELL, DREAM BIG AND FOLLOW THROUGH no matter their circumstances. Serving youth and young adults in foster care and homeless shelters, the 501(c)3 organization provides comfort and support to help children of all ages dream big despite their circumstances. Since its inception in 2012, the organization has provided comfort bags and programming for more than 17,000. PDF's Comfort Drop program supports youth as they enter temporary housing systems through holistic healing modalities like yoga, breathwork, meditation and journaling. Each child also receives a Comfort Bag full of brand new coping tools to help them self-comfort as they move from home to home. The Humble Dreams Alliance program helps teens and young adults create a plan for success with the help of microgrants, mentors, accountability partners, financial planning, and access to free workshops.
