Donielle and Brian Watkins's son Logan was born with Spina Bifida, a birth defect in which a developing baby's spinal cord fails to develop properly. Logan was the inspiration for D.R.E.A.M.S.
D.R.E.A.M.S. came about because Donielle and Brian found that many kids wanted to play different sports and do different activities. They wanted to find a way to accept donations, run the activities and educate the public so before they knew it, D.R.E.A.M.S. was born! The acronym was a long and hard decision. They decided that Disability, Resources, Education, Activities, Management, and Services were the perfect words to describe the organization they were starting. Now, not only was this a program for special needs kids like their son, Logan, but it was also for the parents to get the resources that they may not know about and to communicate with each other. -dreamsfoundationaca.org
