New Dream literally saved my life. After 20 years of Incarceration, I had no clue what I was going to do. New Dream accepted me as I was and helped me enroll in the College of Alameda (CoA). Now I have graduated from the ATLAS program with a certificate which helped assist me with getting employment. I am concurrently enrolled in CoA and UC Berkeley to obtain my B.A. for more stable employment. New Dream. has helped coach me to secure my own place in the world. Now I’m in pursuit of starting my own business. New Dream is the way to go.
