Caregivers are the moms and dads who are sacrificing and giving everything to help their children who have been diagnosed with a chronic or life-threatening illness - or Autism Spectrum Disorder. “Caregiver burnout” is a state of exhaustion that may be accompanied by a change in attitude -- from positive and caring to negative and unconcerned. The mission of Grant A Dream is to refresh and restore the caregiver physically, mentally, and emotionally by providing them with a rejuvenating tailor made experience.

“We do something so special for the Caregiver through their experience that it will give them something to be excited about and look forward to. We give them a way to make new memories that they never dreamed possible.”

Ann Townsend | Founder, Grant A Dream
