The Dreams

Help impact and inspire the lives of these wonderful teens! We are looking for Dream Makers to fulfill the dreams below. Dream Makers can be an individual, neighborhoods, businesses, rotary clubs, church groups, families, fitness group, or pledge your birthday instead of receiving gifts. These dreams serve a variety of purposes that may include laptops for careers and education, constructive hobbies that these youth never got a chance to try, and even others are things many would consider basic needs, such as new clothes and internet access.

Dream Merchandise

Dream Makers has created a line of merchandise to help support our mission. 100% of these proceeds go directly to supporting the needs of our Dreamers. To view our merchandise, and to donate in this manner, browse our inventory below.

About Dream Makers

Dream Makers supports older youth who are at risk of aging out or who have already aged out of foster care system. Every year, 23,000 teens age out of the foster care system without a family to call their own. These are children who have been removed from their biological families, due to no fault of their own, but rather having experienced neglect or abuse. These youth are left without a loving support system or resources to help them reach their full potential. When you become a Dream Maker, you have the opportunity to let one of these youth know that someone cares and they are not alone. Your support can give them the confidence they need to help change their future.

SPOTLIGHT

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DREAM MAKERS!

 

In August 2015, our Dream Makers program officially launched.  Our goal was to support and wrap around aging out foster youth.  We wanted YOU, the community, to become aware of this “forgotten” population and spread the word to your circle of friends and family and fill their dreams!

 

We are excited to share that in the last 4 years:

  • 561 Dreams have been filled
  • $455,648 has been given to fill those Dreams
  • The different Dreams/youth have come from 16 different states

 

THANK YOU for your generosity and support of these young people.

 You ARE making a difference!
