How can you help?


The vision of Fostering Dreams is to provide "dream" experiences for foster children.  We do this through "Princess-At-Heart" Galas for the girls, and "Hero" parties for the boys.  We can't do this alone.  We need your help through volunteering for our events, monetary dentations, and helping to supply specific needs for the various parties.  We will always have a current list of our needs here on the web site as we plan our next event.

Present Needs

We need gowns from size 3T to adult size 30 for our Princess-at-Heart Gala on August 4, 2019. We also need shoes in all sizes and accessories. 

We can still use help with the heating and cooling of the upstairs of the center and the office.  We are thankful for the furnace installed last year in the hall.  What a difference! We also need advice and expertise in renovating the kitchen of the center.

Events & Announcements

Our sixth Princess-At-Heart- Gala is set for August 4, 2019.  The Magic Tree in Boardman, Ohio will once again graciously host the party.  Builiding on the tremendous success of previous years, we want to again create the 'dream" experience for the girls in foster care.  Last year we hosted 121 girls, the most ever. The transformation that took place from the time they came in the door until the end of the party was far more than just a gown, accessories and a make-over.  The smiles, the difference in their whole demeanor changed as the day progressed.  We want to capture than magic again.

Gathering gowns, shoes, make-up, and jewelry is a year round endeavor.  We girls we serve are ages 3 to 18.   If you have items to donate, please contact us at 800-755-1629, 330-519-9034, or email at the address given above.
