Welcome to Destined For A Dream!

Write the vision and make it plain...

Where there is no vision, the people perish...

(Habakkuk 2:2; Proverbs 29:18)

 Erica Waller-Hill, Olympic Hopeful and Professional Educator 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 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, 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."

DFAD Goals:

  •  Provide educational  programs for under privileged youth in low-income communities;
  •  Provide a safe environment for all children and young adults, where they can grow academically, socially and culturally;
  •  Use sports as a driving force to help develop leadership skills, direction, discipline, self esteem and teamwork.  

Mission Statement:
Destined for a Dream will show that dreams and wishes can come true.  Having a dream for your life gives you energy, motivation and passion to achieve excellence.  Destined for a Dream is a non-profit organization founded in the summer of 2008.  It is the mission of "Destined for a Dream" to inspire and empower youth and young adults through life coaching.
