Thank you for your interest in being selected as the next Dream Achiever. While we accept rolling applications, we have two very specific timelines to onboard new candidates during our fiscal year (July 1 - June 30):
1. Spring /Summer start (eligible applicants should apply January 1, through April 30) MOU will tentatively be executed with the fiscal year beginning July 1
2. Fall/Winter start (eligible applicants should start applying September through November) MOU will tentatively be executed Jan 1 (due to tedious interview process)
Note: There are some exceptions to the policy above.
The Dream Come True Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides assistance to individuals and families who are “on the edge of success” but need help to achieve their dreams of education or financial stability.
We provide financial support, in-kind assistance and mentoring to individuals and families who are committed to moving forward in their lives. Some Dream Come True recipients had been homeless and are now involved in stable employment or are completing their education.
Dream Come True is open to Central Texas individuals and families. The Dream Come True Foundation does not discriminate based on age, gender, religion, sexual orientation or ethnicity. There is no age limit or family size limit. The recipient—or the family they live with—must have achieved significant milestones to achieve stability and success but still need help to achieve their dreams. We are not a scholarship program, although we may provide some tuition support. Recipients are expected to be free from substance abuse/illegal drugs. Dream Come True does not provide resources to support or begin businesses. The successful candidate’s Dream will result in employment that moves them out of poverty to financial independence.
If you live in Central Texas, are on the edge of success, but need assistance, apply today to the Dream Come True Foundation. We are also open to recommendations for candidates from other individuals, nonprofits, and agencies. In addition, we have relationships with nonprofits, colleges, and universities to identify potential Dream Achievers.
Dream Achiever candidates must complete an application found at the link below. A reference is also required to fill out a Candidate Reference form on the candidate's behalf. The Dream Come True Selection Committee will process your application. If selected to continue, you will be contacted for an interview by the Selection Committee. Candidates who receive a favorable evaluation from the Selection Committee will be interviewed by the full Board of the Dream Come True Foundation.
We ask that each applicant have a reference complete the Candidate References form here.
Successful applicants will be notified of their selection and partnered with a Dream Come True mentor.
