Program History:

Capture the Dream, Inc. is a product of Founder Janine Lee's dream to create a non-profit organization aimed at improving the community, one individual and one dream at a time. After working with a low income single mother and witnessing the challenges she was going through, Janine learned firsthand of the financial hardships and daily struggles that low income individuals commonly face. At the age of 21, Founder Janine Lee became reacquainted with a mentor who ran his own non-profit organization. Through his guidance, Capture the Dream, Inc. was registered with the Secretary of State, California on July 7th, 2006.
