About Us

Dream Between the Lines is a grassroots organization dedicated to helping children impact themselves and others through literacy. We provide books for children in temporary housing so we can nurture young children as they discover their dreams. DBtL was founded by a three person team of educators from the NYC Public School system, all determined to improve the outlook of success and potential of the city’s youth through literacy. Please read our blog to find out more about our mission and our story.

Join us in spreading:

Influence:  Healthy literacy habits and increased exposure to diverse and culturally relevant texts

Inspiration: Deeply rooted desire for freedom; sparking the dream

Impact: Caregiver & child connections through literacy that leads to the moment that children realize that their dreams can change their circumstance and the world at large
