  • To purchase & restore a historic home to accommodate & support others



Erin's Dream, my dream, is to fundraise the remaining $200,000 to purchase a historic farmhouse in Schwenksville, PA. This home sits along the Perkiomen Creek & has a sprawling public trail that runs through the property. Upon purchasing the home, the house will be restored in an effort to support other families, like mine, who have lost a child or are facing the loss of a child due to a terminal illness.

I have lost 2 of my 3 children to cancer. My children inspired me to appreciate everyday & to follow my heart. Our family was very fortunate to receive great support from our family & community during Avery & Nolan's battles with cancer. When they passed, the support waned while the pain & difficulties continued in our lives.

Our goal is to build a Home of HOPE for families like ours. We feel that the property is ideal for refreshing a broken heart. We want other families who have lost a child to feel supported & welcome while also free to grieve.

How will the 250K be Used?

Budget Notes: This amount will secure us as owners of the Erin's Dream house & allow us to restore the house as needed to serve other families who have lost a child. This will allow us to provide materials to many contractors who have already promised donated labor to our project.
