Dawn Schiller Continues to Spread the Word for Throwaway Teens

A recent trip to Bangor, Maine brought education and awareness to audiences from Dawn Schiller, Founder of E.S.T.E.A.M., an organization formed to assist teens on the streets to prepare themselves for a better adulthood. Schiller spoke at The Shaw House, a facility which is a shelter, education center and transitional housing for teens who have nowhere else to call home.  Expounding on her own story of a dysfunctional childhood which left her in an abusive relationship with a 32 year old man, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and trafficked on the streets of Las Angeles, Dawn continues to show that there is hope beyond what seems to be a bleak outcome. Dawn presented a 2 hour workshop at both The Shaw House and the Mountainview Correctional Facility, giving direction to teens and raising the awareness of the consequences of abuses and neglect in families across the country.  She gives an inside view of what it’s like to be a throwaway teen and how communities can unite to assist them through mentoring and programs.

Dawn Schiller Hits The Roth Show

In a series of interviews by Guest Host, Susan Murphy Milano, Dawn Schiller talks of her experiences on The Roth Show, a nationally syndicated radio show on IRN Network.  Dr. Laurie Roth, known as the “Annie Oakley of the Airwaves,” hosts a show which brings out the details,  doesn’t shy away from controversy, and is always captivating in the issues she presents.  Along with Susan Murphy Milano as her co-host each Wednesday evening, they visit issues of violence prevention, unsolved cases, missing persons and crimes in which justice has been interrupted. Schiller recounts her relationship with adult film star, John Holmes, and how, at 15, she was seduced by the 32 year old Holmes into a lifestyle filled with drugs, sex and danger.  All the ingredients went into a film about Holmes and Schiller titled, “Wonderland” starring Val Kilmer and Kate Bosworth as the unlikely couple.  Although Dawn was never involved in the adult film industry, rather kept isolated from it by Holmes, she lived within the world of seedy characters and drug lords who …
