Are you a Business Leader? You can make dreams come true for kids in foster care and be a foster friendly business (like you might be with military families).

- Make your business “foster friendly” (think Military Discounts for Foster Families!)
- Donate to help us reach the unique needs of every child
Over 26,000 teens age out of foster care each year in the United States. These are children who have been removed from their biological families due to abuse or neglect. They have typically been moving from foster family to foster family for a period of years and feel abandoned, unwanted and are left to face the real world without family support. Dream Makers inspires and empowers these teens by giving them an opportunity to dream about their future. These dreams may be an internship that connects them with an opportunity for the future, a practical gift to launch them towards their next step, a gift to learn a new skill, or an experience to gain confidence. In any case, it’s their dream, and we want to inspire these kids to dream big! When you become a Dream Maker, you have the opportunity to let one of these teenagers know that someone cares and they are not alone. Your support can give them the confidence they need to change their future. DreamMakersProject.org
