Charities & Fund-Raising

dctlogo_0  Established in 1984, Dreams Come True is an organization unlike any other of its kind. As the First Coast’s only locally based nonprofit dedicated to granting dreams for children with life-threatening illnesses, Dreams Come True has granted more than 3,000 dreams for children battling life-threatening illnesses in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia.

Dreams provide brave children and their families with a momentary reprieve from the rigors of medical treatment often associated with life-threatening illnesses. A dream temporarily removes the child from doctor visits, hospital stays, tests and needles and brings laughter, joy and childhood to the forefront. Dreams give the children and their families memories to carry them through the rough times and smiles to last a lifetime. Dreams bring hope and the promise of tomorrow.
