Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The founding of the organization was based in helping to fund the home study phase of adoptions, which will encourage families to fulfill that dream to adopt a child. Through this endeavor, we are branching out to serve the adoption community by opening more programs that address areas where adopted children/families need assistance. Our organization has and continues to research needs that effect adopted children. Therefore, Dream4Adoption will continue to march forward supporting the lives and well being of children whom are available to be adopted.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Dream4Adoption Family Fun Run

This program is a local event to bring together families and perspective families to join in for a fun run that will benefit a local family for their first adoption. The course is a family friendly path measuring 1.5 miles to help promote an active lifestyle as a family. Our event is all inclusive and has a mirrored virtual run for those that can not physically join us. Dream4Adoption prints a T Shirt which is given to each registered guest. There is also a silent auction for those that are interested in further participating in the cause.

You can order 30, 50, 75, or 100 eggs to be delivered to your yard (front or back), or if it is easier, we can drop them off to you.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to help fund adoptions in any manner possible. However, the most important aspect is the ability to help fund the home study process. By doing such, we will capture an audience that may be on the fence about the cost of adoption and hopefully give them the ability to take that leap of faith.

Other programs are to be set for the benefit of needs that adopted children may have from the time that the come to their new forever home, until the time that they are ready to leave the family home for college of whatever next step they choose.

Dream4Adoption is working with partners through the nation to raise awareness and funds to impact lives of children that have been placed in foster care or orphanages. Being a newer organization, we seek the use of technology to re-imagine the format. With all of these tools, we have better access to the entire world. Adoption funding has not been a mainstream cause and part of our strategy is to bring these children to the forefront to make a positive change in the world.

The founders of this organization know and are connected to so many others that are involved in the adoption process. Through this network, this organization has the base resources in knowledge and up to date information. In addition, the ability through the complexities of today's internet, we charge through with innovation to establish a much further and deeper reach to the largest possible audience.

Thus far, Dream4Adoption has built bridges through the nation and in six months has attracted nearly 3,000 unique users to our site. Our first grant process has been launched and we continue to get applications, which support the need for our program. Fundraisers have been beyond initial expectations and they continue to grow. The next step includes more needed programs, more bridges and exponential outreach to foundations for further support to our programs.
