Dreamcatchers (officially "Hospice Dreamcatcher Foundation, Inc.) partners high school and college chapters with a hospice to fulfill the final wishes of hospice patients. The CSULB chapter of Dreamcatchers was started by Masters in Gerontology alum, Amanda Paiz, in 2019. Students from any discipline are invited to join the club and participate in the granting of "dreams." Please contact faculty advisor Mary Marshall (Mary.Marshall@csulb.edu) for more information.
