    Overview

    All Dreams For Kids DC clinics are 100% free for participants and their families. Our events are intended for children with physical and developmental disabilities between the ages of 4 and 24.

    DFKDC events are adaptive clinics held once or twice a month for children with disabilities aged 4 –24. Through our events, those with physical and developmental disabilities are able to come off the sidelines and unite with their peers. A lot of these children have been bullied in schools, and are left out of activities with able-bodied children. The empowerment and self confidence gained through the clinic will carry over from the field to the home, classroom, and the community, allowing them to realize that their disability will not prevent them from fulfilling theirdreams. Each child is partnered with a volunteer to learn the essence of teamwork, have a mentor, and also bond over a sense of camaraderie.
