If you have design skills (degree not required), are a team leader and have a desire to make a difference in the lives of children, WE NEED YOU! The Illinois Chapter is one of the strongest in the country, but still growing because there are so many more children who deserve dream bedrooms! We are looking for volunteer Directors to help us lead teams and create unique dream bedroom makeovers. You will be joined and trained by a team that has created 200 makeovers in the past 8 years. Check out our Facebook page at specialspaceschicagoland for pictures and videos of our recent makeovers.

Mission Statement

Special Spaces creates Dream Bedrooms for children with a life threatening illness. We create a place of peace and comfort where they can heal and recover.


Where does a child go when battling a series illness to find peace and comfort? They aren't going to school or play dates. They are spending a lot of time in their rooms and their rooms now resemble hospital rooms with all their equipment and medicines.

Special Spaces wants to change that. We create the bedroom of their wildest dreams all while addressing their medical needs. Each design team pairs up with a local company and we make the room happen all in one day. It’s like Extreme makeover with a cause. Watch as Sophie’s dream princess room comes true.

We started the Illinois Chapter almost years ago. Since then we have completed 90 dream room makeovers and now have four chapters under the Illinois Umbrella. We are currently looking for new associate Directors to design rooms. Trianing will be provided. We look forward to hearing from you.
