The DreamDog Foundation Visits The Child And Family Network Centers

Today over 30 CFNC children enjoyed an exciting visit from The DreamDog Foundation, an organization dedicated to empowering kids to believe in themselves and their dreams.

The DreamDog Foundation’s founder Rainey (aka Lorraine Friedman, JD) brought campers from her “Do the Write Right Thing” Summer Camp, “Jazz” the DreamDog as well as a host of songs, dances and children’s books—all of which she wrote and produced for the DreamDog program. Their positive energy and enthusiasm inspired both CFNC preschool students and teachers to get up and dance, sing and play along with the Dream Dog visitors.

With songs like “You can do anything” and the motto “the magic is in you!” the DreamDog team taught our preschoolers living in poverty how much potential they have to solve problems and succeed in school and beyond. “It was just great,” noted Sharon Shackelford, CFNC’s Director of Education. “I was thrilled that our students had the opportunity to meet The DreamDog Foundation and learn the important lesson that they teach. It was evident from the children’s faces just how much fun they were having, too. We welcome the opportunity to see Rainey and Jazz at CFNC again.”

CFNC is working with Rainey to bring The DreamDog Foundation program to CFNC’s Arlington classrooms soon.
