Deliver the Dream helps families living with a serious illness or crisis. We organize monthly three-day retreats for families. Our program invites up to 15 families, free of charge, to one of our retreat locations. Each family that attends has a member – whether it’s a child or parent – living with an illness such as Multiple Sclerosis, Cancer, Autism, Down syndrome or Cerebral Palsy; or they've experienced a crisis such as the death of a loved one or a parent who is a recently returned combat veteran adjusting back to civilian life.
Our retreats allow families to relax, enjoy time together, forge new friendships and create support groups with the other families living with similar circumstances. When one person in a family is sick, the entire family is impacted and there are very few organizations nationwide that focus on the whole family unit like Deliver the Dream. The program serves families throughout the state of Florida and has provided more than 145 retreats to over 7,000 family members since 2002.
Deliver the Dream’s healthcare partners include some of Florida’s leading hospitals and organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Miami Children’s Hospital, All Children’s Hospital, Wolfson’s Children’s Hospital, Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital, Chris Evert Children’s Hospital and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
