Dreams for Veterans Launch
September 17, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am
On Thursday, Sept. 17, 2015, in Washington, D.C., Dream Foundation—the only national dream-granting organization for terminally ill adults and their families—publicly launches its Dreams for Veterans program. Dreams for Veterans serves those who have served us by fulfilling a final Dream for terminally ill veterans and their families.
Members of Congress, Obama Administration officials, and Dreams for Veterans recipients and their families will discuss the impact of the program on the psychological health and well-being of veterans at the end of life at this event. A panel discussion comprised of representatives from leading veterans service organizations will discuss the special needs of terminally ill veterans.
Dreams for Veterans is a program of Dream Foundation. Its mission is to serve those who have served by giving back to terminally ill veterans and their families through the fulfillment of a final Dream. Having learned the importance of acknowledging veterans, honoring their service and sharing their personal stories, Dream Foundation created Dreams for Veterans in 2014 to effectively tailor the Dream experience to veterans and their families. Dream recipients are U.S. military veterans 18 and over with a life expectancy of 12 months or less. For more information about the program, please visit www.dreamfoundation.org/veterans.
