It takes a good group of solid volunteers to execute our annual event, and to support our non-profit program on a year-round basis so we may execute our fundraisers and various activities in our communities.
Are you interested in being a part of the Dresses and Dream Project Sisterhood? The Dresses and Dreams Project is much more than a dress, it is an experience. The founder’s vision includes a physical showroom and office location large enough to hold workshops and counseling services, mind, body, and spirit healing, career counseling, resources to victims of human trafficking, domestic violence, and other crisis matters, and art for healing through music, painting, and poetry, we have faith we can move forward with helping more young women and continue our mission, growing and expanding our demographics and geographic locations with appropriate funding and support.
We have several different areas that are in need of volunteers. Please fill out the online form to be considered to be part of a wonderful sisterhood and expression of love to young women in our communities! You will then be invited to our next meeting and an interview date will be set.
