The Hidden Dream was built to raise awareness of the countless struggles faced by visa immigrants, share resources, and create a community to uplift immigrants who have spent several years in this country without a pathway to citizenship.
We specialize in creating resources for childhood visa arrivals (Children who entered the country on H4, L2, E2 etc. visas and are at risk of deportation)
Who We Serve
We serve visa immigrants (including visa dreamers, dependent visa spouses, families affected by the Green Card backlog, mixed-status families, and international students) by compiling and creating resources, guides, hosting workshops + support groups, and providing a safe space for visa immigrants on social media, offering an annual scholarship, and creating crucial networking opportunities.
We primarily work with folks who are either on H4, L2, E2, F2, and J2 visas right now or with folks who have aged out and are either undocumented or on F-1 status.

Mentorship Circle for Immigrant youth
The Hidden Dream launched a mentorship program for professional development! 40 Mentees were paired with 13 mentors based on common interests such as hobbies and career goals. Through this program, mentees were able to engage in project-based learning and gain valuable educational and professional skills. We will announce when the 2022 cohort is open!
As a team of four Hidden Dreamers, who have gone through the immigration struggle, we created this organization to help others in the same situation.
