Musicians donate their time and talents to The Dream Catcher Foundations Fundraiser event, Musicians for Charity. Dine under the stars at an exclusive private residence in California. The event features an extraordinary silent and live auction, dancing and other entertainment. Proceeds will benefit foster youth. Please Contact Theresa McPherson if you would like more information on how you can be apart of this dynamic event.
The Dream Catcher Foundation (DCF) is a non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization. It is our mission to provide a comprehensive therapeutic program that addresses the behavioral, emotional and educational needs of foster youth. It is also our mission to reunite every foster youth with their biological family or a foster family to promote permanency in their lives.
Youth in foster care are 44% less likely to graduate from high school. After aging out of foster care, 40 to 50 percent never complete high school. Each June, The Dream Catcher Foundation celebrates the outstanding accomplishments of our foster youth who graduate from middle school and high school by hosting a Graduation Celebration. Help us make this celebration a memorable event by giving a cash donation or a gift card to purchase items, such as, school supplies, dorm necessities, clothing, etc.
On January 1, 2009, The Dream Catcher Foundation began operating Group Homes (residential facilities) under the direction of Pam Norris who partnered with Theresa McPherson, founder of the Foundation.
The program has over 30 years of history providing residential care services to Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and the Department of Probation. The program provides quality care and services to foster youth (girls) ages 8 to 17 years old.
The Dream Catcher Foundations mentoring program is dedicated to matching each foster child with a mentor. Mentors are screened and live scanned. Mentors receive orientation and training before being matched with a foster youth.
Making Dreams a Reality for Children
