ABOUT US

Our Mission

To serve the hundreds of thousands of abused and neglected children currently in U.S. foster care, one dream at a time. Since most of these children receive benefits and services that only cover the minimum necessities of life, we aim to track children and match their needs with services, goods, funds, mentors, classes, travel, and/or lessons that will be donated to our organization. We will connect dreams to children who, by feeling special, will learn to value themselves and be good citizens as they grow up and emancipate out of the system. By being a “Dream Kid” they will be touched by a spirit of caring and community involvement that is priceless.
