1Team 1Dream is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating entrepreneurs, businesses and the public on invaluable information on sustainable business practices that can collectively strengthen Lake County as a community.
The organization was formed in response to the years of fires that have led to loss of people, property and livelihood. With 8 fires under 4 years, Lake County’s economy was greatly affected. Many businesses had a hard time getting back on their feet. So many families had lost their homes and their income. Many were displaced from the evacuation.
To combat the effects of the fires and to achieve economic resilience, 1Team 1Dream founders Maryann Schmid and Olga Steele, launched 1Team 1Dream, a non-profit organization that will provide essential educational and training programs to help Lake County businesses and start-ups.
