Deliver the Dream was founded by Pat Moran, past chairman and current board member of JM Family Enterprises, Inc. After many years of seeing families struggle to stay together as they coped with disability, illness, or crisis; Pat dreamed into fruition a program that would help families alleviate stress, learn coping skills, and just allow them to enjoy being together as a family.

In 2002, Deliver the Dream held its very first retreat for families with a parent battling cancer. Since that day, Deliver the Dream has brought hope and healing to more than 8,400 family members from across the country.

Deliver the Dream is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
