Hi, I’m Barbara Gederian Muckel, Executive Director for Dream Chasers NW INDIANA. What an honor it is to be a member of the Dream Chaser family! I’ve had many blessings in my life thanks to God, my amazing family, and incredible circle of friends. My greatest gift, and highest personal achievement is my son, Hunter. I believe that all children deserve encouragement, support and the opportunity to succeed. Our NW INdiana youth are craving the opportunity to be a part of something greater. The first time I read the Dream Chaser mission statement, I realized that every child in our community deserved the chance to not only dream BIG, but to also be given the tools to achieve those dreams with Guidance, Encouragement, Support and most importantly, LOVE. Together, We are GREATER!
