Dream family Hub
Welcome to the DREAM Family Hub!
As we navigate this time together, the maxim “DREAM Is Family” has never meant more. In these unprecedented times, the safety and well-being of the entire DREAM community remains our first priority. This website will serve as a resource for our scholars and families during our school closures. Here you will find important updates, information, assistance, and resources.
The DREAM is Family Fund
As the impact of the pandemic continues to grow, DREAM has launched an emergency assistance program for our families. This program is intended to give direct financial relief to support financial and other needs made greater by the pandemic. We are still taking applications for this fund; the next deadline to apply for a financial grant is Thursday, October 1. If you applied to receive emergency financial assistance, we are working hard to make sure we can meet needs as quickly as possible. You’ll hear back from us soon.

Governor Cuomo has released a statement announcing that New York State schools are authorized to reopen for in-person instruction this fall if the rate of infection in their communities remains below 5%. In DREAM's case, the announcement changes very little, please continue to look out for updates as they relate to our reopening plan.
