Dream & Hope
Community Support Program

The Dream & Hope program was created to support the students and families of Give Chances. The goal of this program is to financially guide and assist our community as much as possible through various donations and scholarships.

  • Food & Grocery Items

  • COVID-19 Necessities

  • School Supplies

  • Academic Scholarships

Dream & Hope In Action

  • Rent Subsidization

    Since many of the families of our Give Chances students were unable to work during the pandemic, we organized a fundraiser to subsidize one month’s rent. We were able to distribute $500 to each family, reducing their financial burdens.

  • Food Assistance

    Since the outbreak of the pandemic, Give Chances has been providing food donations to our students and their families on a weekly basis.

  • Scholarship Fund

    In an effort to reduce the financial barriers that exist for students from low income families and help our students and volunteers succeed, we offer academic scholarships. These scholarships are intended to cover not only the costs associated with tuition, but also a wide range of student needs.


To apply for assistance via our Dream & Hope program, candidates must meet the following qualifications:
• Must be a current student or volunteer at our Joyful Learning afterschool program
• Must have a demonstrated need for financial assistance and support
• Must submit all required forms and documentation

The Dream & Hope program is continually looking for new ways to positively impact and be of service to the members of our community. If you would like to reach out to us and speak to a member of the Give Chances’ team regarding your situation and how we can support you, please contact us at info@givechances.org or call 201-266-0640.
