Welcome to Team Dream Work!

Why am I walking?

   If you didn't know, I am the director over our preschool here in Daytona Beach and our facility in Bunnell, a special place called Project WARM. I work alongside our teachers and get to love on these kiddos, and watch them make tremendous strides every day! We cannot do it without your suppport though. All that know me, know my passion for early childhood education. You also know we are severely and unfairly underfunded and now our children need even more support. There are more and more kiddos being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders and behavorial disorders.  Easterseals is striving to be the preschool to support all of these kiddos, when families do not know where else to go. We need your help though! Please consider any kind of donation, small or big, or share the word, or join my team and come out and Walk with Me!! 

I am excited to participate in Easterseals Walk With Me because I want to spread hope and raise funds to help individuals and families living with disabilities, right here in our community in Volusia and Flagler counties. 

Easterseals provides life-changing services that help people of all ages live better lives. For example, we help young children learn to walk and talk and get ready for school. We offer classroom learning opportunities for children to work alongside their typically developing peers, so there is some special interactions happening every day. We provide job training for adults, and support for families taking care of loved ones with disabilities. And, we assist older adults in learning skills to help them live as independently as possible as they grow older.

   We also have some cool programs, like a Loan Closet, so if you are in need of medical supplies, like crutches or a walker, you can borrow them for free! We have a respite program, called Joey's Gift, that meets once a month to offer fun activities for the kiddos while the family gets to enjoy some time free and clear to use as they wish! 

But the demand for their services is increasing, as more children and adults and their families need Easterseals help every day.

Why I need your support

I'm committed to making a positive difference and I know how important Easterseals is to our entire community. But I can't do it alone. 

Please make a donation and help me reach my fundraising goal! 

It's a step we can take together to provide much needed support to children and adults living with disabilities.

I trust Easterseals as a fiscally-responsible organization because every dollar we raise benefits local Easterseals clients right here in the community.

Please consider a donation or joining Team Dream Work! Thank you!!
