We Did It!

Thank You for Helping Us Fund a New Van
When the van that Have Dreams uses to drive our Life SCILS participants to their internships and activities was vandalized in December, our participants were left stranded. Getting out and participating in activities in the community provides opportunities for Social, Communication and Independent Living Skills at the core of our Life SCILS program. 

Thanks to the amazing generousity of so many kind-hearted donors, we raised $25,000 to purchase a new van to keep our participants actively involved in the community. 
Thank you to everyone who donated to Have Dreams directly and also through our GoFundMe campaign. Special thanks go to Bill and Connie Manika, who matched the donations on our GoFundMe page to help us reach our goal and get our participants back on the road safely. Your generosity will have a positive impact for many years to come.

Thank you for helping Have Dreams get moving again with a new van!

Mark Your Calendar: April is Autism Awareness Month

"Fun-Raising" at Temperance Beer Company
April is Autism Awareness month and we are raising a glass with our friends at Temperance Beer Co. to celebrate the wonderful boys, girls, men and women, who are touched by autism. Have Dreams invites you and your friends to join us at Temperance on Sunday, April 2nd - World Autism Awareness Day to raise a glass and raise some funds for children, teens and adults with autism.

We call it "Fun-Raising" - a fun way to fund raise. All you have to do is stop by Temperance at 2000 Dempster St. in Evanston, IL, on Sunday April 2nd between noon and 6 pm and have a beer...or two. In honor of World Autism Day, Temperance will donate $1 for every pint and 50 cents for every half pint to Have Dreams. Our goal is to "fun-raise" $2,000. Please share this with your friends, family, colleagues and neighbors. Cheers!
