Who We Are

Don’t Stop Dreamin’, (a 501c3 non-profit organization) provides for the fulfillment of resident DREAMS in the Quality Life Services nursing, rehab and personal care homes throughout Western Pennsylvania.

Did You Know?

Don’t Stop Dreamin’ was founded in 2005 by Mary Susan Tack-Yurek, Chief Quality Officer at Quality Life Services. She recognized that many residents in nursing homes and senior communities had unfulfilled DREAMS and desired to find a way to bring those DREAMS to life! DREAMS are an important special event in a resident’s life... especially because many residents face the loss of their independence, health, livelihood, or a loved one

From Idea to Reality

  • On average, Don’t Stop Dreamin’ grants 1 DREAM per week at an average cost of $150.
  • There are no income restrictions and residents can be of any age.
  • Residents must be cognitively, emotionally and physically capable of communicating and experiencing the DREAM.

Who We Serve

Don’t Stop Dreamin’ fulfills the dreams of residents at Quality Life Services homes, located in seven counties through Western Pennsylvania.
