HOW TO START THE PROCESS
If you know of a child ages 3 through 18 who has been diagnosed with a critical or chronic illness and has not received a dream from any other dream fulfilling organization, they may be eligible for a dream.
We typically do not randomly call families nor do we allow friends to fill out an application for a child. It is very important to us that the dream be that of the child's. Therefore the family, including the child, must participate in the completion of the application.
If you are a friend or relative who would like to refer a family, you can guide them to our website, have them give us a call at 585- 234-0740 or have them send us an Another option is for us to send you a brochure and some initial information to pass on to your friend or relative.
Social workers and physicians can contact us to receive an application to pass on to their families.
After receiving and completing the initial paperwork, it needs to be sent to
The Dream Factory
PO Box 308
East Rochester, NY 14445
When it is received by us, we will contact the family to arrange a time to meet. It is important to us that we meet and speak with the child requesting the dream.
Dream referrals for our chapter will only be considered for children who reside in the Greater Rochester Community/Western NY. The Dream Factory regrets that our volunteers are not able to grant all requests, but must limit their efforts to their local children.
