 Erica Waller-Hill, Olympic Hopeful, Professional Educator and Motivational Speaker created the Destined for a Dream Foundation in the summer of 2008.  Waller -Hill, a Bucks County native who currently resides in Philadelphia, felt compelled to give something back to the youth who share her same passion,  focus, perseverance and energy that she displayed during her 2008 Olympic Journey. 
The foundation's mission is to "inspire and empower youth and young adults through education and  life coaching," by providing at- risk youth with opportunities that will help them believe that they hold the power to create and shape how they live as well as the choices they make.  Destined for a Dream will provide  projects that interest our youth and enhance them academically, socially and athletically. 
To achieve this mission, the foundation supports a variety of programs including, but not limited to:  After School Activities Program, Dream Academy,Literacy First,  Mentoring Programs, Job Training, Healthy Lifestyles, College Prep, the annual Destined for a Dream Scholarship banquet as well as a Christmas Dream affair, which is an annual family event to support and award scholarships for families in need of "A Christmas Dream."
Destined for a Dream Foundation has served over 32,000 student's, families, school and community based organizations~ to date.
