Recognizing our future is squarely in the hands of today’s children – there is nothing more important than developing their self-confidence and self-esteem. For a homeless child, this is a daily challenge. Our mission is to provide a birthday celebration for every homeless child in our community and offer additional support in as many ways possible.
Central Oregon currently has 1100+ children attending school each day, but with no home to return to each night. These are the children the school district knows of. There's no way to determine how many more there may be.
Imagine how sad it is for a child to be homeless, but imagine even more how sad they must feel on their birthday. Our objective is to provide at least one day each year where they have a celebration.
