ADF inspires underserved children to reach for their dreams through innovative reading programs and by advancing the cause of early childhood literacy.
Founded in 1996 as a 501c(3), Non-Profit, Public Charity, Kristi Yamaguchi's Always Dream Foundation was established with one purpose in mind: to support organizations that have a positive influence on children.
Since its inception, the Always Dream Foundation has purchased computers for an after-school mentoring program, provided "shopping sprees" for underprivileged children to purchase back-to-school clothing, organized Holiday parties for children's shelters and sponsored summer camp for kids with disabilities.
Always Dream has now made a long-term commitment to address the deepening crisis in education in the United States. Committed to the belief that early childhood literacy is the foundation on which all academic and, in fact, life success is built, we have set our sights on dramatically improving access by children of low-income families to books and technology.
