Who does Opal's Dream Foundation help?
In particular, Opal's Dream Foundation strives to assist individuals with no other visible means of support. These may be nursing home residents with no living relatives or individuals whose families have abandoned them.
When are wishes and dreams fulfilled?
'Wishes' and 'Dreams' are submitted by nursing homes to Opal's Dream Foundation web site. They are reviewed by the Board of Directors on a quarterly basis and granted on a case-by-case basis based on merit.
Why is it called 'Opal's Dream Foundation'?
The Foundation is named after Opal Grubbs. Opal spent the majority of her life alone in a nursing home as a ward of the state. She dreamed one-day she could leave the nursing home and see an ocean. With no family or funds, she was never able to fulfill that dream before passing away. We exist to make sure that doesn't happen again.
How can I get involved?
