Ryan Applebaugh

In July 2013, we mourned the loss of one of our clients, Ryan Applebaugh.

Ryan attended Dreams Work for eight years, sharing joys of infectious smiles, beautiful blue eyes and gentle backrubs. While we continue to miss him, we remember his blessings and the joys he received as a participant in our program. His favorite activity was getting outside, loading onto the bus and experiencing various community outings. In his honor, we have created the Ryan Applebaugh Memorial Fund in an effort to purchase a new van, providing worry-free transportation large enough to transport all Dreams Works clients.

Please consider making a donation by clicking the “Donate” tab in the upper right corner on the Home Page or mailing your check to Dreams Work.

Message from Cindy Applebaugh, Director of Dreams Work Inc.
As the mom of a child with developmental disabilities, I understand what it is like to have a child with special needs. I know that parents want all of their children to have varied and exciting experiences in an environment that best meets their specific needs.

My commitment as director of Dreams Work is to ensure that each of our clients experiences a quality of life that enriches their lives, everyday.
