2021 Annual Impact Report
Our 2021 Annual Report is now available!
Thanks to the support of our generous donors, we have gained a lot of ground in a short amount of time. The annual impact report shares more about the training programs and center construction projects completed last year, highlights testimonials of the impact DreamRoot's work is having, and explains our leadership development model.
We hope you will explore it, share it with your friends, and engage with DreamRoot Leadership Institute as we come alongside current and emerging leaders in underserved communities to launch, operate, and multiply meaningful community-based social initiatives to reverse the cycles of poverty and promote the well-being of every member of society.
