Established as a 501(c)(3) in 2008, Ticket to Dream is dedicated to providing hope and opportunity for foster children across the nation, so they can just be kids. We believe it starts with joining forces with businesses and local communities to ensure foster youth of all ages have the school supplies, holiday gifts, properly fitting clothing and shoes that all children need to thrive.
We are proud to provide and fund enriching life experiences like a trip to the zoo, joining the soccer team, music lessons, help in school, tickets to fun events, even reuniting with a sibling at summer camp. We know these experiences teach important life skills, create normalcy, friendships and bring joy to childhood.
We help create opportunity by funding aging out programs that increase graduation rates, provide housing, access to laptops and teach employment/life skills aimed to prepare foster youth for adulthood and reduce the rate of homelessness as they leave care.
