Welcome to DreamCatchers!
DreamCatchers is a group of volunteers working with terminally ill patients to try to make their dream or wish come true.
When a patient, patient’s family or hospice caregivers contacts DreamCatchers, we gather information about the dream and then evaluate whether we can make it come true either in reality or through a simulation.
One patient had dreamed for a last sailboat trip with their family. We gathered the family and chartered a sailboat for an afternoon sail with 20 family members.
Another patient dreamed to have family gather for a reunion and to hear his composed poetry. We arranged the reunion and for family to gather from around the country.
One patient wanted to spend time on an ocean beach. Because of the illness and limited mobility, we brought the beach and umbrella celebration to him.
Our team works closely with hospice caregivers to make sure the patient is safe and receives the proper care. We work closely with various hospices in locations with Dreamcatchers clubs.
Our first club for the foundation began at one high school in California and is now states all around the country. High school students, university students, and hospices are thrilled to makes these dreams work for those who are terminally ill.
Check our dreams under Dreams Fulfilled and under Clubs.

The DreamCatcher Story
Native Americans believe the night air is filled with dreams… both good and bad. The Dream Catcher, when hung over or near your bed, swings freely in the air and catches the dreams as they flow by.
The Dream Catcher
The good dreams know how to pass through the dream catcher, slipping through the outer holes and sliding down the soft feathers so gently that many times the sleeping person does not know he or she is dreaming. The bad dreams get tangled in the dream catcher and never see the next light of day.
The Dream Team
Our Dream Team uses the Dream Catcher to find the good dreams and get them to our patient. Follow the Dream Team as they travel around the United States to set up DreamCatcher clubs in other cities.
Origination of Dream Catchers
Caitlin Crommett collected dreamcatchers for years as part of her Native American heritage and the stories her family heard over the years. As the idea to grant hospice patients’ final wishes evolved, she thought the Dreamcatcher was the obvious and wonderful choice for the foundation name.
