How Can I Help?
The Dream Factory is a volunteer-based
organization. One of the most important
tasks of our volunteers is to find critically ill
children, by working closely with physicians,
medical staff, social workers, teachers,
the clergy, friends and families.
much time does it take? Your commitment to the
Dream Factory can be as time-consuming as you want

based on your lifestyle and your ability to make
dreams come true.
often do we meet? Our meetings are held on the 3rd
Monday of every month. If you are interested in

can see, 90% of all funds raised are used to
fulfill dreams for our "dream children." From
trips to The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World
to the opportunity to meet famous celebrities,
the Dream Factory calls upon all of its resources,
financial and human, in creating the moment of a
