Executive Summary Dream Big, Inc. was established as a 501(c)(3) organization in June 2010 by a group of parents, teachers, and therapists who wanted to create a charitable organization to support services that would cater to the specific needs of children and young adults with special needs. Dream Big, Inc. aims to raise money for charitable purposes: to expand, contribute, disburse, and otherwise handle and dispose of the same for such purposes relating to the aims and goals of children and young adults with special needs. Included are contributions to institutions organized for the same or similar purposes; to assist in harmonizing and making more efficient the work of charitable organizations; creation of programs that support the physical and emotional well being, social, vocational, leisure/recreational, logistical, communication, and educational needs of children and young adults with special needs.
