The Future Belongs to Those Who Dream

“Thank you so much for assisting me in learning how to play the guitar. I have always wanted to learn, but I never got the opportunity. Because of your generosity, I can now pursue this dream. This will be a great opportunity for me to learn something new and to use these skills to better myself. Playing the guitar will cause me to be more creative. Most of all, I will have fun! Thank you so much!”

Tatiana, Youth in Kinship Care

“My dream is to become a pre-school teacher in the future. I want to help kids learn how to sound out words and count to 100. I want to be a teacher because they help kids, and I want to help kids too. Thank you for helping me”

Amari, Child in Foster Care
