Tom Tuohy

Tom founded Dreams for Kids in 1989 at the request of his mother, Patricia Tuohy, a single parent of four children. Abandoned by his father at eight years old, Tom was deeply influenced by mentors who introduced him to a level of suffering in other children far worse than his own difficult challenges and presented him with a vastly different worldview.

Tom is an attorney, author and public speaker and is convinced social entrepreneurship will solve our local and global social issues.
