Dream Makers - Helping Make High School Student Prom Dreams Come True

Dream Makers gathers references from school counselors, preachers and word-of-mouth and tries not to turn anyone away, Hill said. "We sit down and talk to girls and their families and ask them about themselves and what makes them think they should be picked. We just help kids in general."

There is no income level requirement, just that they are in need. After all, the cost of a modern prom can be steep and often area girls and their families are tapped out after just the dress. Dream Makers can step in and help with the many other costs of prom.

One thing is for sure -- some of the Dream Maker girls will be going to prom in a donated gown they may otherwise never have been able to afford. Some gowns are worth $500 to $700.
