Youth are equipped to thrive as adults.
Today’s teens face extraordinary challenges with lifelong consequences before they’ve fully developed the skills to cope with them. These can include everything from traumatic experiences like homelessness, trafficking and abuse to the everyday challenges of being a teen, like peer pressure, family conflict and stress. Since 2004, Journey to Dream has provided youth safe spaces to work through these issues by developing their identities and healthy coping skills.
Founded by two passionate women who saw a gap in services for homeless teens in Denton County, the organization has grown to reach 15,000 young people annually. We are a faith-driven and inclusive organization that is committed to empowering teens while also providing them the guidance and accountability needed during these formative years.
Our continuum of programs include shelter for teens experiencing homelessness, ongoing support services and in-school prevention programs to help middle and high school students manage the stresses of growing up in today’s complex world.
