Thanks for visiting!

DREAM Lake County is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all volunteer organization. Our mission is to provide athletic and academic scholarships for at-risk youth.   All proceeds from our social enterprise business, Cloud City Botanicals, provide scholarships for at-risk youth in Leadville.    In 2019, we are planning to expand our business to hire youth and give them an opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship and small business.

WHY:  Youth & their families  face many challenges in our community-- 

  • The overall poverty rate in Leadville is higher than the state average.  Lake County has a high child-poverty rate and a high reduced-lunch rate
  • Alcohol use among youth in Leadville is higher than the state average.
  • A recent survey asked high school students in Lake County to name their top five health concerns.  87% of youth listed substance abuse as a health concern.
  • Domestic violence and DUI rates are more than double the state rate in most years in Lake County.   

Check provided to Lake County High School (summer 2017) to provide 5 basketball scholarships
