The Referral Process:

One of the most important parts of helping A Wish Come True to fulfill its mission is to receive referrals of potential wish children. The wish process starts when a caring person refers a child to us. Learn about who is eligible for a wish to be granted and how AWCT accepts referrals, you could be that caring person. Remember "Dreams are only A WISH away."

How Does a Child Qualify for a Wish?

  • The child has a life threatening illness.

  • The child's doctor will be contacted for authorization that the child medically qualifies.

  • The age of the child is 3 through 18.

  • The child must not have had a wish granted by another wish granting organization.

  • The child lives in Rhode Island or areas of Southeastern Massachusetts.

Who Can Refer a Child to A Wish Come True?

Anyone can refer a child to be considered as a candidate for a wish to be granted. The only requirement is that the parents/guardians of the child know that you are referring him/her to us.
