Our Mission

The DreamCatchers program was started as a volunteer program in conjunction with Hospice Care of the West, LLC. The program was the idea of Caitlin Crommett, a 15 year old sophomore at Tesoro High School in Orange County, California. Caitlin had the idea early in 2009 while watching the movie, “Patch Adams” during a scene in which Patch helped an elderly woman who was not eating. In the scene, she noted that she always wanted to jump into a pool of pasta….and Patch made that wish happen.

Beginning at age 12, Caitlin volunteered with the Hospice Care of the West group for several years in various capacities. Now that she has graduated from high school, she is working to expand the program to other communities across the United States. Caitlin is now a senior at the University of Notre Dame and is passionate about continuing to spread DreamCatchers mission wherever she goes.

The DreamCatchers Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) corporation.
