Kim Phipps and Martrina Reed-Holmes, both former middle school teachers, recognized the need to engage young people in productive activities during out-of-school time and put their plan for Dream Weaver Foundation in motion soon after Hurricane Katrina. Sadly, however, Martrina passed away from Stage IV breast cancer in 2009 and never had the opportunity to see the full reality of their dream. Kim continues building their dream and leads the organization as its executive director.
