The Dream Factory began with one all-volunteer chapter in Hopkinsville, KY in 1980. Since then, The Dream Factory has grown into the largest, all-volunteer driven, children's wish-granting organization in the United States. They currently operate under 34 chapters with hundreds of extremely dedicated volunteers. These hard-working individuals raise funds within their own communities and then use those funds to grant dreams to local children. Ninety percent of all money raised by The Dream Factory is used to grant dreams. The Dream Factory is the only national 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.
