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
