Field of Dreams 2016Hoop Dreams 2016Community Heroes Celebration

ABCD means different things to different people.

Their first job. A warm home. A windfall — thanks to ABCD’s free tax preparation.

And the budgeting skills to manage that windfall.

For some, ABCD means classes to take the next step, whatever that step might be.

Learning English. Computer skills. Finishing high school. A college degree.

ABCD helps people power up and dream big.


Find out more about ABCD’s annual events that raise funds for all of our various programs.
