The company, which is known for its commitment to the community and support of more than 50 local charitable organizations, has a long-standing partnership with Dreams Come True of Jacksonville, Northeast Florida’s only locally based nonprofit dedicated to fulfilling the dreams of children with life-threatening illnesses.
Since 2013, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty has contributed more than $342,857 to Dreams Come True of Jacksonville. In 2021, the company donated $54,584 to the nonprofit organization.

Additionally, the company has sponsored Dreams Come True’s annual 5K, two employees serve on Dreams Come True’s Horizon Board and its Realtors and team members have volunteered, fundraised and supported numerous Dreams Come True events.
“Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty is truly a dream come true for our organization, and I am so grateful for their partnership,” said Dreams Come True of Jacksonville Executive Director Sheri Criswell. “In addition to providing all of these dreams to local children battling life-threatening illnesses, the company has assisted the families we serve with dozens of other things, such as hundreds of backpacks for our dreamers and their siblings, Jacksonville Jaguars game tickets, pool parties and more. When I think of impact, I think of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty and its impact on Dreams Come True as an organization and, more importantly, its impact on the precious children we serve.”
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty’s relationship with the nonprofit started with a single donation – sponsoring one dream – that quickly developed into an ongoing partnership.
