Mission Statement

The Dream Factory of Louisville grants dreams to chronically and critically ill children from 3 to 18 years old in the local community.

Description

In 1980, The Dream Factory began with one all-volunteer chapter in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Since then, The Dream Factory has grown into the second-largest children's wish-granting organization in the United States, granting over 25,000 dreams since its inception -- all while maintaining a grassroots approach. The Dream Factory continues to operate all 38 of its local chapters with over 5,000 very dedicated volunteers. These hard-working individuals raise funds within their own communities and then use those funds to grant the dreams of local children. Because we do not employ people on a local level, 84% of all money raised by The Dream Factory is used directly to grant the dreams of critically and chronically ill children.

The Dream Factory is the only children's wish-granting organization that does not limit its mission to children who have life-threatening illness. The organization believes children with chronic illnesses and disorders also suffer from substantial emotional and physical pain. We strive to provide hope and relief from the trauma and corresponding stress and depression that both the children and their families can endure on a day-to-day basis. Doctors agree that providing a dream can improve the quality of life for these children and extend the life of a critically ill child.
