How Your Contribution Helps

 "I Have A Dream" Foundation-New Jersey provides comprehensive wraparound services to NJ youth (known as Dreamers) from K through Career. We are unique in our long-term, in-depth approach, providing services and programming that targets and supports the ever-changing developmental needs of our Dreamers and their families. We meet our Dreamers where they are and we dedicate the majority of our resources to programming and services that benefit them. Thanks to the work of our supporters, staff and Dreamer families, our original cohort has graduated high school or is on track to graduate this Spring. We are excited for our Dreamers who are now enjoying their first year in college!

When you support IHDFNJ, you're helping us to continue this work and to cultivate the next generation of Dreamers at our newest community partner, the Thirteenth Avenue/Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School in Newark.
