Apply To Become A Dream Achiever
The Dream Come True Foundation – South Texas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides assistance to individuals and families who are “on the edge of success” but need a bit of help to achieve their dreams of an education or financial stability. We provide in-kind assistance, mentoring, and financial support to individuals and families who are committed to moving forward in their lives. Some Dream Come True recipients had been homeless and are now involved in stable employment or are completing their education.
The Dream Come True is open to individuals and families and students that are citizens or legal residents of the United States of America in Kleberg, Jim Wells, Brooks and Kenedy Counties. The Dream Come True does not discriminate based on age, gender, religion, sexual orientation or ethnicity. There is no age limit or family size limit. The recipient-or the family they live with-must have achieved significant milestones to achieve stability and success but still need help to achieve their dreams. We are not a scholarship program, although we may provide some tuition support. Recipients are expected to be free from substance abuse/illegal drugs. Dream Come True does not provide resources to support or begin businesses. The successful candidate’s Dream will result in employment that moves them out of poverty to financial independence.
While we encourage applications at any time, our two specific deadline dates for 2020 is May 15th and October 1st. Applicants are encouraged to apply early so we have ample time to conduct a brief phone interview and collect other material such as unofficial transcripts and references.
If you live or are a student in Kleberg, Jim Wells, Brooks, or Kenedy Counties, are on the edge of success, but need assistance, apply today to the Dream Come True Foundation. Dream Come True will contact you by phone in order to process your application. If selected to continue, you will be contacted for an interview by the Selection Committee. We are also open to recommendations for candidates from other individuals, nonprofits, and agencies. In addition, we have relationships with nonprofits, colleges and universities to identify potential Dream Achievers.
