About Dream Makers

Dream Makers is a program of America’s Kids Belong. Dream Makers serves youth who have aged out of foster care or are likely to age out in the near future. Every year 23,000 teens exit the foster care system without a family to help them transition into adulthood. These youth were removed from their families, having experienced neglect, abuse, or abandonment. Dream Makers helps remove barriers that stand in the way of the empowered, connected lives these youth dream of having.

The Dream Makers Project draws a community around youth who have no family to help them navigate the financial challenges of young adulthood like renting an apartment, getting their first car, clothes for a new job, or locating a reasonably priced laptop for school.

Once a young person has a basic need met through Dream Makers, they are empowered to dream about their future careers and other steps of independence through our program.

When you become a Dream Maker, you have the opportunity to let one of these youths know that someone cares for them and that they are not alone. Your generosity can give them the confidence they need to step into their future.

Award Winning. Dream Making.

AKB & Dream Makers Project Receive 2019 Adoption Excellence Award

The Adoption Excellence Awards were presented to 12 recipients at a ceremony November 12th in Washington, DC. The awards recognize the extraordinary contributions made supporting positive permanency outcomes for children in foster care. America’s Kids Belong and our Dream Makers project received the 2019 Adoption Excellence Award in the category Business Contributions/Initiatives. AKB was nominated by Assistant Secretary Lynn Johnson of the Administration of Children and Families, US Department of Health and Human Services. Congratulations to AKB Co-Founders, Brian & Julie Mavis and Janet & Ryan Kelly, and to Lori Bruegman, National Project Director of Dream Makers.

At the event, Vice President Pence recognized America’s Kids Belong for their work saying, “America’s Kids Belong matches older children and youth aging out of foster care with generous supporters. They are meeting their basic needs, connecting them with new opportunities, including employment and helping them achieve their dreams.”

Currently, 125,000 children in foster care are waiting to be adopted. Federal Government leaders have pledged to help end this crisis for these children, including Lynn Johnson, Assistant Secretary for the Administration of Children and Families and Alex Azar, Secretary of Health & Human Services.

We were honored to receive this prestigious award. To date, the Dream Makers Project has raised well over 1.5 million to help youth who are aging out of the foster care system without a forever or adoptive family. That funding has been used to purchase new furniture for a first apartment, a laptop for college, job training, and other essentials for the life transition that occurs when someone turns 18.
