    • About

      Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

      Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana is one of 59 chapters throughout the United States and its territories. Since our inception in 1984, we have granted nearly 10,000 wishes to local children, and, during fiscal year 2022, we granted 572 wishes—a record for the organization. By 2025, we will double the number of wishes granted annually.

      We are on a quest to bring every eligible child’s wish to life because a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows that children who have wishes granted build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. This improves their quality of life and produces better health outcomes. A wish transforms the lives of children, their families, volunteers, supporters, medical professionals, and entire communities.

      Make-A-Wish is the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization, serving children in every community in the United States and in 50 countries worldwide. Since 1980, nearly 500,000 wishes have been granted to children in the U.S. and its territories.
