Birthday Dreamsis dependent on donations and our generous volunteers. We couldn't do what we do without the generosity of others.

Can you envision a community where every child is celebrated and thrives? Birthday Dreamscelebrates the lives of local area homeless children with a birthday party, which enriches their childhood experience with joy, purpose and dignity.
Birthday Dreams is a non-profit that partners with more than sixty homeless shelters from Tacoma to Everett to provide cake, presents and birthday cheer to homeless children throughout Western Washington. Many of the families we assist are singularly focused on simply surviving another day. Consequently, a child's birthday party is too costly of a luxury. Many of the children we serve have never even celebrated a birthday. These children carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. Birthday Dreams ensures that these children get one worry-free day to be the center of attention, and experience a simple moment of pure joy.

"I was overjoyed by the complete package of Birthday Dreams. It made me so happy. Not only me but Luke especially and the other children. That was such a nice touch with the birthday bags and party game. They all had such a great time. Thank you so much!"
