From the Founder

Welcome to Catch the Dream!

Catch the Dream Foundation has two missions:  to support individuals with a special talent or skill whose circumstances have prevented them from reaching their true potential, and to recognize and support the extraordinary efforts of a special category of volunteers.  Why these two missions?
