Our Plan

DreamFaith Foundation seeks to create mentoring partnerships with organizations such as Childs Park Recreation Center and St. Pete’s Promise Mentoring Program.  We seek to leverage existing mentoring programs and help the city to help the community.  Our initial goal is to partner with these community organizations to enroll 50 mentors in the DreamFaith Mentoring program as well as create a revitalized Computer Lab with brand new Dell computers, new chairs and new workspaces by the end of 2014.  Thanks to the help of our partners, we have created a new computer lab at Childs Park Community Center.
