To provide employment assistance to youth and adults with disabilities.
Dreamcatchers’ mission is to provide assessments, job preparation, job placement, and coaching to youth and adults with limitations and physical, mental, or learning disabilities, and youth transitioning into adulthood without job skills. Dreamcatchers Empowerment Network is dedicated to serving individuals in a collaborative manner, with a network of other agencies. Dreamcatchers’ services are directed at assisting participants to prepare for, choose, obtain, and retain employment. Services are tailored to an individual's strengths, resources, priorities, needs, abilities, interests, and informed choice.
Dreamcatchers is raising funds to support General Operations. Although General Operating funds are essential to ensure quality and efficiency in business and program operations, often it is not funded in grant applications. All monies generated will benefit operations of clients receiving services in Solano County.
In 2018, Dreamcatchers received our 6th full three-year accreditation from CARF (Commission on Accredited Rehabilitation Facilities). This accreditation means that Dreamcatchers passed an in-depth review of its services and meets rigorous CARF guidelines and internationally recognized service standards. This accreditation allows Dreamcatchers to retain our vendorization with the State of California, Department of Rehabilitation.
Recently in October, Dreamcatchers honored and celebrated our clients that have become hired over the past year at our Annual Client Success Recognition Luncheon. During this event many of our clients shared their testimonies on how employment has impacted their lives. This year we had the Office of Assemblymember Jim Frazier deliver the opening remarks. Guests included our clients and family members, County and State officials, dignitaries, our Board of Directors, and stakeholders, as well as community partners from the six counties in which Dreamcatchers provides services.
Dreamcatchers fundraising goal for Giving Tuesday is $10,000.
