Our 2.0 club members make a meal with NH Food Bank's Recipe for Success program.
DreamCatchers 2.0 young adult clubs started around 2015, as much of the original DreamCatchers group had “grown-up."
We currently have clubs in Dover and a partnership in Manchester with SNHU Buddies.
Many of the participants in these clubs have jobs or volunteer and live independently or with a parent.
DreamCatchers 2.0 was created to offer a safe space for those living with a disability that allows them to be more independent, to gather and form relationships as a group, and to interact with their community.
One example of this is when a DreamCatchers 2.0 group visited their local public access station to perform a TV News skit they called “Nifty News”.
The Dover 2.0 group has gone to Hannafords to learn about healthy living and will soon have a police officer visit to talk about safety.
We have been collaborating with local universities to have volunteers, where able, come and help run the activities to support the club leader and build relationships with the members.
