About DreamCatcher
DreamCatcher provides shelter and protection, counseling and positive activities; it helps youth develop a sense of independence and control over their lives, which helps them on a productive path. Ninety-six percent of the youth served have been successfully placed by returning to his or her home, to a relative or a friend, or to a transitional living program or to the foster care system. Youth who have been through DreamCatcher have gone on to finish high school, enter college, find jobs, and become productive citizens of our community. For information on services, contact Alameda Family Services at (510) 629-6311.
