TICKET TO DREAM
One child enters foster care every two seconds, due to their parents inability to care for them. Today there are 425,000 in the foster care system – the average age of entry is eight. These children may face significant challenges – anxiety, stress, changing schools frequently, low rates of high school graduation. When moving from one home to the next, children in the foster care system often lack basic essentials and belongings – books being one of them. Ticket to Dream aims to let foster kids just be kids, by providing the essentials, experiences, and support to thrive.
