Journey To Dream Gala, November 2015

Again this year, Shelly served as the Chair for the Journey To Dream “Dream Big” Gala.  It was a huge success raising over $150,000 for at-risk teens in our local community.  Funds will be used to build Denton County’s first teen homeless shelter.  Kyle’s Place will be a vision of hope and a safe place for the homeless teens which will be a reality in the near future.  With the support of our community, Kyle’s Place is set to open in 2016.  Shelly is also on the Board for Journey To Dream.

From the Journey to Dream Website:  Journey to Dream was born in 2004, founded on a single devotion: to support at-risk teens – those silently struggling with the isolation and chaos addiction and abuse so often bring.  Since its inception, the organization has positively impacted more than 85,000 students through school assemblies, support groups, and community events – all aimed at empowering young people with the tools necessary to overcome adversity.  Over the course of our work with youth, we discovered the hidden epidemic of youth homelessness, setting into motion our current and most challenging endeavor:  Kyle’s Place.
