Celebrating our 300th Dream!
Believe in Dreams is excited to announce that with your vital support, together we have reached an incredible milestone, 300 Dreams! 300 unique and personalized dreams to support, give hope and make a difference for 300 resilient youth in our community.
Our 300th Dream is similar to our first, a tale of resiliency in children. A 13-year-old boy who has endured several hardships including past homelessness, an incarcerated parent and severely low income. Despite everything he has been through he is extremely smart, kind, helpful and motivated. He excels in school and is a major caregiver for his younger sibling with a cognitive disability. With his devotion to supporting his family and due to their low income, he hasn’t had the resources to pursue his interests. With dreams of learning to do glass blowing and coding, your support provided him the opportunity to received a personal glass blowing experience, up to 3 sessions of virtual coding lessons and additional items every 13-year-old boy loves.
As we begin this holiday season in uncertain times, on behalf of the 300 youth that received their dream, and the countless additional children in line to fulfill their dreams, we are tremendously grateful for your support!

Dreams Fulfilled
There is nothing more heart-warming than seeing the joy of a child. Dream coordinator, Molly, was able to see this x3 while working with the ‘Smith’ family. ‘Max’ 4, ‘Justin’ 5, and ‘Frankie’ 7 have a family member with a chronic illness that has taken up most of the family’s time, energy, and attention and has caused much financial strain. Along with their mother, these resilient kids live with their grandparents who help provide support to the family. They stay positive and hopeful being together as a family. They asked for the smallest things but they have the biggest impact. They are all going on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad when it re-opens in 2021 and received a family membership to the zoo for a full year of memory making. ‘James’ received new toys and clothes. ‘Max’ got new toys, an iPad, and art supplies. ‘Frankie’ received a mother/daughter spa day, an iPad, and toys. They couldn’t wait to see Molly and kept asking when they would get to talk to her. Through the smiles and laughter, ‘Frankie’ told Molly that she is better than Santa. A moment that Molly and the family will never forget.
