Our History

Special Spaces is non-profit 501 c(3) organization that creates dream bedrooms for children with life threatening illnesses. Special Spaces evolved on the precedent that children facing this journey need a special space for them to heal, recover and find peace. Special Spaces was founded in July of 2004 in Knoxville, Tennessee and to this day has created over 600 dream bedrooms since its inception. Our organization has been the subject of national attention.

Special Spaces came to Wisconsin in late 2011 when our first Milwaukee chapter was formed. We now have four chapters including Milwaukee, Green Bay, Fox Valley and Dubuque, Iowa. Since 2011 we have completed over 75 dream bedrooms. Our goal is to recruit and develop three new chapters in our state and complete our 100th makeover by the end of next year.
