Waller-Hill, Olympic Hopeful and Professional Educator created the Destined for a Dream Foundation in the summer
of 2008. Waller -Hill, a Bucks County native who currently resides in Philadelphia, felt compelled to give something
back to the youth who share her same passion, focus, perseverance and energy that she displayed during her 2008
mission is to "inspire and empower youth and young adults through life coaching," by providing at- risk youth with
opportunities that will help them believe that they hold the power to create and shape how they live as well as the choices
they make. Destined for a Dream will provide projects that interest our youth and enhance them academically,
socially and athletically.
To achieve this mission, the foundation supports a variety of programs including, but
not limited to: After School Activities Program, Dream Academy, Mentoring Programs, Job Training, Healthy Lifestyles,
College Prep, the annual Destined for a Dream Scholarship banquet as well as a Christmas Dream affair, which
is an annual family event to support and award scholarships for families in need of "A Christmas Dream."
