Dreams Come True for Children with Life-Threatening Illnesses in Jacksonville

Our Mission to Make Dreams Come True for Sick Children

What is Dreams Come True of Jacksonville?

Dreams Come True is the First Coast’s only locally-based, wish granting organization dedicated to using the power of a dream to bring hope and joy to EVERY First Coast child battling a life-threatening illness. Since 1984, we have fulfilled the dreams of more than 3,700 children. No child is ever denied a dream and no child is ever placed on a waiting list. We are proud to say that, unless otherwise designated, 100% of all donations go directly toward dream fulfillment.

Building a House of Dreams

Dreams Come True invites the community to come together to help create a new outdoor patio at the House of Dreams. Put a lasting imprint on our brand new patio by purchasing a limited edition brick paver. Each brick is customizable to leave your name or a unique message as a reminder to all that visit. Due to the generosity of JB Coxwell Contractors, WW Gay Mechanical, Stellar, Matt Connell, and the Miller Electric Company, all proceeds from your brick paver purchase will go directly to the programs and services of Dreams Come True. The Dreams Come True Brick Paver Project is scheduled to be open and in full bloom by April 2018!
