Education Scholarships~Health and Financial Wellness Management


Our Mission

Quin’s Dream is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to foster healthy, diverse, vibrant communities by providing scholarships to those with academic merit but lacking the financial means to pursue undergraduate degrees or vocational/trade school certification.

We also offer health (physical and emotional wellness) and science and engineering outreach, and financial management education to increase understanding of money, debt and assets to scholarship recipients.

Our third aim to promote our mission is to develop, operate and advocate for home rental and ownership with a portion of the proceeds from these homes going to support scholarships.  


About Quin

Quin’s Dream is a non-profit organization established in 2015 in memory of Betress “Quin” Echols who after retiring in 2005 from teaching high school Chemistry and Biology for more than 35 years, continued her lifelong commitment to teaching by tutoring students of all ages and supporting everyone’s graduation from kindergarten through graduate school. She believed that everyone was capable of academic success.  Quin was killed in an automobile accident in February 2014. This nonprofit aims to continue her legacy of leading, learning and giving.
