WE ARE LOCALS HELPING LOCALS

The mission of Chasin A Dream Foundation is to provide individualized, life changing, assistance to families with children battling cancer, cystic fibrosis and other life threatening illnesses. 

What began as a local grassroots movement to assist these children during the holidays has grown into an established non profit organization. Founder, Lori Griffith, had worked in the healthcare industry for the past 18 years, giving her a first hand look at what these children and their families face on a day to day basis. She wanted to be able to make more of a direct impact by providing life changing assistance year round so she dedicated herself to building Chasin A Dream Foundation, based on her belief in community and locals helping locals.

YOUR SUPPORT
IS NEEDED

We rely on local businesses for support, and in-turn we support them. Our focus is to remain local. We do not fund research, but instead we invest in assisting families through the challenges of dealing with a child battling a life threatening illness.

With your donation we have the power to make a difference right here at home.

WHO WE SUPPORT

Just imagine in one day being ripped from a carefree childhood filled with fun, adventure and promise to a life of hospitals, doctors, needles, surgery, painful procedures and isolation. These children endure it all while somehow still possessing confidence, strength, bravery ad love. They are heroes – they are WARRIORS.
