Girls on the Rise – Class of 2018

The 1,000 Dreams Fund has joined forces with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston to provide five girls in our program who are currently in high school with a scholarship to help fund college financial expenses such as visits to out of town colleges or application fees.

Christie Garton, Founder of the 1,000 Dreams Fund, states that their vision exists to provide greater access to educational opportunities so that all young women may fully realize their potential.
