What We Are Doing To Support Students and Families Now:

All Program Staff are connecting with each of the 600+ Dreamer Scholar families via phone, text and email to assess their needs, including access to food, housing stability, mental health resources, academic learning, technology and internet access.
  • Through our deep partnerships in the community, “I Have A Dream” is providing:
    • Referrals to Boulder County resources for food and household supplies, rent assistance, mental health services, and more.
    • Support for students’ virtual learning needs including help with securing reliable internet access and computers.
    • Opportunities for virtual tutoring and academic advising to support students with testing skills, and college and scholarship applications, particularly for those students nearing high school graduation.
    • Emotional support to parents, caregivers, and students, assuring them that we are here to support them no matter what lies ahead.
