Our Philosophy

The Centre for Dreams began with Elaine Vollett, the mother of a son with a developmental disability. When her son turned 21, and was no longer able to remain in the school system, Elaine began a program which would allow her son, and many others, the chance to experience life and all the experiences life has to offer.
