KidsDream Programs

Little Wishes

imageKidsDream's mission is to help fulfill the dreams of abused and neglected children of Snohomish County by providing them with opportunities to develop their skills, talents and self-esteem (with things like music lessons, playing sports, going to the prom, having a bicycle to ride or summer camp) and to promote involvement by the entire community in helping these children

Each month we grant any number of wishes. We are always seeking donors who can help us help a child realize their dream by donating money to the little wishes fund or by joining the "Wish A Month Club". By joining the "Wish A Month Club" you pledge a dollar amount to be donated each month (by Visa or MX) and you will be notified of the wish that you have granted. For more information contact Cindy at 425-583-9090 .

KidsDream Closet

imageBecause children are often judged by what they wear, and to help boost their self-esteem, KidsDream offers new and "gently used" clothing to children who are placed in foster care or living in a relative placement. These children often come to their new foster homes with just the clothes on their backs. Not only are these children in need of basic clothing, (pants, shirts, underwear, socks, shoes) they also need school supplies to start their new school.

Along with clothing, KidsDream Closet also has twin beds, cribs, toys and dressers available to foster parents. KidsDream has partnered with Compass Health for this Closet project and have a beautiful facility at the Compass Health campus in Everett. If you have items to donate please call Cindy at 425-425-583-9090.

Back to School Drive

We believe that it is essential that every child start school with the supplies they need to be successful. These kids are in need of backpacks, binders, pens, pencils, crayons, scissors, etc. If you are interested in hosting a "Back to School Drive" or would like to donate, please email [email protected]

Summer Camp Wishes

A week at summer camp gives a child or teen the opportunity to experience something wonderful ... the chance to step out of their situation and be a "regular kid". In 2004 we helped send nearly 50 abused and neglected youth to summer camp. Along with nearly $4,000.00 in scholarships and discounts these kids will have the time of their lives. Camps range from $150.00 to $650.00 . If you would like to sponsor a camp experience or donate to the camp fund contact [email protected]

Graduating Youth

Donate NowDid you know that only about 30% of youth from the foster care system graduate from high school? KidsDream and DSHS-Children's Administration honors the youth who have graduated from high school or obtained their GED. KidsDream provides a "hope chest" of items such as new pots and pans, silverware, dishes, towels, and more to help them start their life after leaving the foster care system, and we partner with both business and civic organizations to host a dinner and celebration.
To help graduates, contact Cindy at
