Granting dreams to children who are critically or chronically ill

When a child dreams,

we answer.



Dreams provide hope and inspiration to children and their families during the most difficult times. The Dream Factory is always looking for children who live in the Greater KC area who are in need of help in living out their wildest dreams. To find the chapter nearest to you, you can visit the Dream Factory National Headquarters website.


Refer a Child

Do you know a qualifying child in the Greater KC area that needs some joy? Please contact us to get the referral process started. To get started, please complete this form online or Download the Dream Factory of Greater Kansas City Child Referral Form. Anyone can nominate a child for a dream - parents, family friends, physicians and nurses, teachers - the process is simple.

The Dream Process

There are four steps to having a dream come true. Granting a dream is more than creating a moment of a lifetime. It serves as an opportunity of inspiration for children to continue with often times difficult medical treatments and gives them hope for a better tomorrow.
