Delaware Dreams foundation works with local children’s organizations to bring a smile to a child’s face.
Delaware Dreams, Inc., founded in 1987, is a private foundation formed to provide for the special needs and/or wishes of those children in the Delaware community who are suffering from life-threatening illnesses/challenges.

Beyond the many individual cases presented to Dreams from the social work staff of Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware Dreams also sponsors several events for the families of children being treated for cancer and sickle cell disease at the Nemours Children’s Hospital (located in Wilmington, DE). These events offer an opportunity for the entire family to interact in a relaxed atmosphere with the doctors and nurses they have all grown to know only in a hospital setting.

Delaware Dreams also supports Exceptional Care for Children (ECC), Delaware’s first and only pediatric skilled nursing facility. Exceptional Care for Children is a center for skilled nursing, palliative, and end-of-life care for children.

As of 2020 Delaware Dreams is proud to support the Down Syndrome Association of Delaware (DSA), by supporting special events for the children of DSA of Delaware to enjoy. The DSA of Delaware is a statewide non-profit support group, organized and managed by parents of people with Down syndrome.

Since 1989 Delaware Dreams has been a proud supporter of higher education through Delaware FAME (Forum to Advance Minorities in Engineering) by annually awarding a two-year college scholarship to a graduating member of the FAME program.
