The “I Have a Dream” Foundation – Los Angeles (IHADLA) helps kids who don’t get a lot of help have a better life and get a good education. We’re proud to announce that 73 of our “Dreamers” are off to college this fall, and the “College Supplies Drive” aims to provide them dorm room essentials and necessary academic supplies that they otherwise could not afford

Our bright, young high school graduates are all from East Los Angeles, and they have been part of the IHADLA family since the first grade. For the past twelve years, we have watched them progress through our after school program, one-on-one tutoring, college and career prep programs, culturally-enriching & college field trips, and our mentoring program. Now they are off to college and they need us now as much as ever.

Our Dreamers come from extraordinary circumstances with not much money to spare, and we want to take care of the basics so that our Dreamers can focus on the big stuff - getting that "A" on their next final, writing the perfect essay, or filling out their financial aid paperwork on time. With your help, we can make a difference in their whole college career by making sure they start out on the right foot! To learn more about IHADLA, please visit, or call (213) 572-0175 to speak with any IHADLA staff member.

On behalf of our Dreamers, we thank you so much.
