Giving the dreams of foster and children in need the wings to fly
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 donations, 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.
As with many charitable organizations, our ability to provide experiences for the foster children has been severely curtailed due to COVID-19 concerns. You can be assured that as soon as restrictions are lifted, and options become available, we will once again be providing activities and events for our kids.

We need gowns from size 3T to adult size 30 for our Princess-at-Heart Galas. Donation may be made to our partner, Diva Donations.
We also need dress shoes and jewelry to complete the transformation of our girls into princesses.

Events & Announcements
Our sixth Princess-At-Heart- Gala was set for August 4, 2019, and unfortunately had to be cancelled because of the health concerns due to COVID-19. We are beginning to set tentative plans for a gala in August of 2021, but we will be proceeding with caution. The Magic Tree in Boardman, Ohio has graciously hosted the five parties we have held. Building on the tremendous success of previous years, we want to again create the 'dream" experience for the girls in foster care. At our last gala, in 2019, 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 Diva Donations, 11836 South Ave, North Lima, OH 44452, 330-540-8327
