2021 is an exceptionally difficult time for our young foster population to enter the workforce. There is a lack of business suits … especially for our young men. But we will happily accept business suits for girls, too!
So. If you have any suits or know people who have any please help!!

The photo above is an artistic 22 year old young man still in the foster system. His joy at receiving these suits from us prompted our larger suit drive. I hope you get as enthused as I am about trying to rustle up business attire for this incredibly deserving population! 🙂
THANKS everyone! Sue Wolf PS our brand new website and 2 years of data was erased by godaddy (no we didn’t have a backup…yikes) so forgive our last posting being March 2019. At some point march 2019-May 2021 will be restored and our clunky site re-imagined. Meanwhile, enjoy our history. We are tiny but we have mighty dreams! Thanks for reading. 🙂
SpongeBob SquarePants, Head Over Heels and Choir Boy invited us to join them for their shows and then for a magical backstage tour!
Lou Castro shows us backstage!
Lou Castro, Choreographer of SpongeBob Square Pants.
Brooke Smith arranged for Lou Castro the assistant Choreographer of Sponge Bob Square Pants to give us an in depth look at all the amazing things backstage at the Palace Theatre! He showed up props, wardrobe and al the fantastical technology!
Julie Boardman & Sarahbeth Grossman welcome us to the Green Room!
HEAD OVER HEELS producers Sarahbeth Grossman, who has been a supporter of Foster Your Dream kids for the past 10 years, took us to their green room and introduced us to producer Julie Boardman. We were allowed to ask questions and feel like a VIP!
As usual, I can only show emancipated foster children who are OK with our taking their photo or with guardian consent. That’s why you tend to see the same few kids … they are the ones who are enamored by all things THEATRE! The one below has a particular connection to theatre and FYD’s mentorship has been sort of like a rag-tag theatre fellowship. So enjoy her joy!
