Dream Catchers for Life (Family Self-Sufficiency)

Dream Catchers for Life (DCFL) provides participants with case management to identify, target, and address unmet needs. We provide support services, referrals, advocacy and any follow up necessary to remove the difficulties families face in being able to move forward. The case management support provided enables families to work on living without the assistance of governmental programs.

DCFL offers a six-week Job Readiness class to assist in preparing participants for successful job searching and the obtaining of a job. The Job Readiness class consists of Employment Training, Computer Technology, Money Management, and Parenting Skills. A 30-day work experience is provided for those participants that have not had a recent connection to the workforce.

DCFL offers GED Prep Classes for those participants who were unable to graduate from high school and need help in preparing to take the GED test.
