The Dreamcatcher Foundation fights to end human trafficking in Chicago. Our not-for-profit organization works to prevent the sexual exploitation of at-risk youth and helps current prostitutes find confidence and stability beyond the limitations of their current lifestyle. The Dreamcatcher Foundation fosters confidence, courage, independence, and inner strength within young people in disadvantaged areas. Our harm reduction approach allows Chicago’s most disenfranchised young women take advantage of all of the mentoring services we offer and improve their lives through education, empowerment, and prevention.
Welcome to the fight against human trafficking. Welcome to The Dreamcatcher Foundation.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR GRADUATES!
This spring, two of the ladies who have been in our prevention program since it started will be graduating! We want to congratulate them and their families on this amazing achievement and thank them for their warmth, kindness, and uniqueness that has added so much to Dreamcatcher over the years.
We love you!

Instead of a featured donor for this spring, we are going to honor here ELLIE RENGILL, who sent us the following beautiful letter after seeing Brenda on MSNBC.
'This email probably won't make it that far, but I just saw Mrs.Myers-Powell on MSNBC and I had to at least try to thank her. To see the way she talks to women who have been through trauma, things that some people could not even dream of, made my heart ache with gratefulness. I am grateful for you ma'am; all you have accomplished, all the lives that you have saved, and all the souls that you've renewed. Thank you.'
This letter is a beautifully phrased reminder of what we are all doing here and why this work is so important.
