Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
We are dedicated to making every eligible child’s wish come true.
Make-A-Wish Southern Florida has a sole mission: Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Started in 1983 by the Plantation Junior Woman's Club, the Southern Florida chapter has grown from granting a wish every 180 days to granting a wish every 14 hours. In its 34-year history, the organization has granted more than 11,000 wishes. It is our vision to grant the wish of every medically-eligible child in our territory.
In the 2018 fiscal year, we expect to grant more than 600 wishes to local children with critical illnesses. Additionally, we anticipate granting another 175+ wishes, in collaboration with other chapters, when children come to our territory to experience their wishes. Make-A-Wish Southern Florida serves children and families in 22 Florida counties in Southeast and Southwest Florida, the Tampa Bay and Suncoast regions and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
