Our Vision

Prom Dream is a community cause aimed at providing support for single mothers and their teenage daughters during difficult times. The program offers an opportunity for selected high school teens to attend prom with a full package including a dress, shoes, and accessories, without having to worry about the financial burden of the occasion.

To be eligible for the program, high school teens are required to write an essay on why they should be selected to receive the full prom package. The selection process is based on the individual's financial need and personal circumstances. The aim of this selection process is to ensure that those who are most in need of assistance receive it.

All the proceeds from this cause are dedicated to providing the full prom package to the selected teens. The initiative recognizes the challenges that single mothers face in raising their children, and how it can be especially challenging when it comes to meeting the financial demands of high school events like prom. Therefore, the initiative seeks to make a positive impact on the lives of these families by offering support during a pivotal moment in their lives.

The Prom Dream initiative is a wonderful way to give back to the community and help families in need. By providing young girls with the opportunity to experience prom without worrying about the financial burden, this initiative promotes inclusivity and a sense of belonging for all high school students.
