During the 2019 Florida legislative session, the Dream Foundation ...through its advocacy, fought to help legislators find a "third way" for dealing with the implementation of Amendment 4... that did not require payment of fees and fines as a barrier to the right to vote. While the fund was set up to assist those seeking to pay fines and fees in adhearance to the passage of SB 7066 (which implements the Amendment 4 constitutional amendment), with other organizations taking on that cause, in 2020 the Dream Foundations fund moved to focuses on providing reentry services statewide with a goal to even provide grants and assistance to the many non profit organizations in Florida providing reentry services.
The Dream Foundation Reentering Citizens Fund is housed at 1709 Mahan Drive Tallahassee where it also assist City Walk Urban Mission with its reentry services.
