Because The Dream Factory respects the privacy of families who have critically or chronically ill children, we do not actively recruit children for dreams or accept referrals from friends. If you know of a child who might be eligible for a dream, encourage the family to contact your local chapter or contact our national headquarters.

Who can refer:

  • A parent or legal guardian of an ill child
  • A treating physician of an ill child
  • The ill child


Dream referrals will only be considered for children who reside in communities where chapters exist. The Dream Factory regrets that our volunteers are not able to grant all requests, but must limit their efforts to their local children. Click here to contact your local chapter.
