Dreams for Kids

Changing the world…one person at a time

“Dreams for Kids is a remarkable work…a story of courage and fear…about strategies for living everyday life with compassion, acceptance and love. One person can truly make a difference and change lives—even their own—by reaching out to those in need.”

— John Kemp, Past President, US International Council on Disabilities, 1991 Horatio Alger Distinguished American

“Dreams for Kids has inspired me to do all I can to use my success to lift the lives of at-risk youth. This is something I want to be part of, helping kids, making sure they have good role models. You reach out and you might touch one of these kids and they might want to do the same for another person.”

— Pierre Thomas, New Orleans Saints, 2010 Super Bowl Champion

“Tom Tuohy’s unforgettable closing address at the renowned Maui Writer’s Conference in 2006 inspired me beyond words. Having worked with Tom on several projects in support of his wonderful Dreams for Kids organization since, I can only say that my initial stellar impression of the man has only increased. There are a handful of people you meet in life who you know will make a profound impact on the world, and Tom is one of them. His work to empower young people of all abilities to fulfill their God-given potential is going to change the world for the better. As a former fighter pilot, I’ll put it this way: Tom Tuohy is one of the very few men I would fly and fight for . . . to the death, if the mission required it. I’m honored to know Tom as a friend, and proud to give him the very highest possible recommendation.”
