Board of Directors and Staff.

Click on our pictures below to learn a bit more about us!

Traditional nonprofit boards operate using a top-down hierarchical structure modeled on for-profit corporate boards. The Board of Directors at Dreams of Hope is comprised of three cohorts of stakeholders who are integral to the programs, culture, and financial stability of the organization.

  • The Volunteer cohort is made up of adult professionals such as artists and financial and legal experts.

  • The Youth cohort is made up of youth participants from our programs or in the community-at-large.

  • The Staff cohort is made up of all current staff members at Dreams of Hope.

Each cohort is led by a co-coordinator and together the co-coordinators oversee the running of meetings and other important duties necessary for running the organization.
