Fulfilling Dreams Of Resilient Children

We grant dreams for youth who have faced traumatic, non-medical events, giving them access to enriching opportunities, connection to their communities, and hope for their futures.


While we’re currently working on 15+ Dreams, here are a few you can donate to directly. From skills classes to sporting experiences, nothing is out of reach for our Dreamers!

Dream: First Aid/CPR Class

Dream: Geneva on the Lake Cottage

Dream: Snowboard Lessons


Do you work with a resilient child who has faced adversity and has big dreams? Nominate them today.


Your contribution goes directly towards a youth’s dream package which may include: lessons, classes, a museum membership, or even meeting a role model they admire. From A to Z, we help them bring their dreams to life.


We empower youth who are under resourced to believe in themselves, their dreams and their futures.

Who We Serve

We serve economically disadvantaged youths looking to achieve a goal or ambition previously thought unattainable.


Since 2014, we’ve worked side-by-side with resilient youth to help them realize their dreams and gain access to reach their goals. With a commitment to ethical storytelling and trauma-informed care, we’re dedicated to ensuring our Dreamers – all 500+ of them – have the opportunities they need to have hope for their futures.
