"Not only do I have a support system within school, but I also feel supported in a college bound program called “I Have A Dream” Foundation. I have been in this program since kindergarten. It is a foundation that offers love, support, and motivation to those growing up in a community that lacks hope and belief for the youth." - Delviniah Williams

Elijah is a attending Columbia High School

"At first I thought that IHDF was just another type of program for after school things when I was young. But as I developed into a young man, I now know how much of an impact it has on the present and future. I couldn't have done anything without the help of IHDF and all the support from the parents and mentors." - Elijah Evans.

"I Have A Dream Foundation means hope, determination, open-mindedness, and diversity. This program has opened my eyes to many opportunities in the world and the steps I need to take in order to reach my goals/dreams. The support from Rutgers business School students, is really helping me. Also, IHDF wants every scholar to become successful in life.
