The Dream Factory is the largest 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.
The Dream Factory of Rochester was chartered in the fall of 1998 with our first dream being fulfilled in May 1999 when Autumn, a 7 year old girl from Brockport, NY living with spinal muscular atrophy, traveled to Orlando, Florida with her mother. Today we have fulfilled over 225 dreams in our community. We have sent many children to Central Florida, NYC, California, Arizona, and tropical islands. We have provided children with televisions, computers, pools, hot tubs, room makeovers, and shopping sprees. We have introduced children to sports celebrities, musicians, actresses, and creators of television shows. Their dreams are as varied as the children we meet and the challenges they face.
If you would like to learn more about our local chapter, nominate a child, host a fundraising event, or join us at our monthly meeting. Typically at 7:00pm the 3rd Monday of each month at Gallina Development 1890 S Winton Rd #100, Rochester, NY 14618
