Our Mission Statement

Our Mission:  

To ensure that Foster Care Children know someone cares.

Our 3 Signature Events

Holiday Toy Event- Throughout the years, we have gathered new toys, books, DVD's, clothing, basketballs, sports equipment and gift cards for children in the Los Angeles County Foster Care system.  Thanks to our generous donors, the Holiday Toy Event grows larger and larger each year, allowing Working Dreams to service increasingly more Foster Children.  The Working Dreams Holiday Toy Event is the largest non-profit gift giveaway for Foster Youth on the West Coast.

In 2019, on the day of the event, we gifted over 900 Foster children. We partnered with The Department of Family and Children's Services (DCFS) and the Culver City Police Department  to increase our reach to Foster Children and ultimately helped over 17,500 Foster Children have a Happy Holiday!  


                                                                        We are very proud to also partner with Vision to Learn.  Vision to Learn is a non-profit                                                                             that provides free eye exam and free eyeglasses to students in low-income                                                                                            communities.  They bring their vans to our Holiday Toy Event and screen the Foster                                                                               Children on-site.  

Prom Basket Giveaway- The brainchild of Shante, our youngest team member, started in 2014.  Foster Care High School Junior and Senior Girls are treated to a day of choosing their prom gowns, evening purses and make-up pallets. Beautiful new prom gowns, both long and short, are donated by a leading manufacturer. The girls also receive hair care products and Target gift cards. We host between 300 and 400 girls at our Prom Dress Event.

Back to School Backpacks- Since our first backpack giveaway in 2015, we have partnered with DCFS in giving backpacks to Foster Children who are the most in need.  Thanks to our generous backpack donors, we have been able to hand out thousands of school supply stuffed backpacks.
