Houston's Premier Program for Inner-city Youth
Through education and mentoring, "I Have a Dream" ® - Houston inspires at-risk youths to dream and empowers them to believe in themselves and succeed.
It is our vision that every at-risk child in Houston achieves higher education and becomes self sufficient.
Help Dreamers Succeed
Our annual program evaluation reveals that mentoring sessions lead to significantly higher TAKS reading scores and reading grades. Mentors (Dream Partners), tutors and other volunteers are the cornerstone of our organization.
2008 Back to School ~ Supply Drive
Would you like to provide assistance to our Dreamers but don't have the time? Why not help them get their school year off to a great start by donating school supplies? I Have a Dream - Houston will provide supply drop boxes to different locations around the Greater Houston area. Please see Supply Drive page for a list of needed school supplies. We will also be collecting school supplies at the Houston Comets game, September 6th, so spread the word! The Houston Comets take on the Los Angeles Sparks at Reliant Park.
