Erikas Dream Team
Our nationally recognized 501(c)(3) Erika's Dream Team, Incorporation in my sister's honor hopes to start a group home where homeless teenagers will fill welcomed. The purpose of our group home will be for homeless high school aged teenagers. Our goal is to put a end to homelessness not only in Connecticut and the United States of America but In every state & country. Homelessness can cause many forms of depression which is the root of our goal to support youth whom are struggling with the many forms of depression such as anxiety by offering them shelter as well as helping them to connect with local people within their community by creating avenues of resources. We want to stress to our teenagers that there is life after homelessness.
Within the home we will offer an after school program for middle and high-school aged students whom are interested in learning the basics of sewing. Our program will provide the basics for those that plan to have a career in the fashion industry. Our program will be open to all students.
We provide support to the homeless and less fortunate families by food drives, toy drives and coat-blanket-sock drives where we provide water, meals, throughout the year clothing, and gifts during the holidays.
