Turning Points for Children LOVES the Ticket to Dream Foundation. We are the largest provider of foster care services in Philadelphia and Ticket to Dream has done so much for the children under our care -- they have provided winter boots, books, holiday gifts, chrome books and the list goes on and on.

I find Ticket to Dream the best type of partner. They are there to help and don't ask for anything in return. They truly want to just help kids in foster care.

Partnering with Ticket to Dream has been so instrumental to the work our organization does serving youth aging out of foster care. From random offers such as laptops and mass mask donations when Covid hit, to “regular” challenges our youth face such as support for housing, education, and employment needs, Ticket to Dream has been a constant source of support. We are so thankful to this foundation for always thinking about new, creative, and innovative ways they can support our young people.

I have been a CASA volunteer for over 12 years. Not until Ticket to Dream chose us to be their partner did we have the ability to truly take care of the youth that we serve.
TTD has literally changed hundreds of children's lives that we service. From providing clothes, shoes, school supplies, laptop computers, monetary donations to support after school activities, and more.

Our organization supports normalcy best practices for those in foster care. Meaning we do the best we can to let these kids live a normal life with the same advantages of others. TTD has supported ths mission for years. I have no idea what we would do without them.

Thank you TTD for all of your support and for the lives you have enhanced for CASA Hawaii.

I've left a couple of reviews over the years and nothing has changed. My name is Mary Lennick and I am the Executive Director at Family Alternatives. We are a private, Minneapolis based child foster care agency. I can't sing Ticket to Dreams praises enough! Of course the donations are AMAZING - high quality - brand new - thoughtful, meaningful items! And their team is equally amazing. Great communication and attention to detail. We remain so grateful for this incredibly partnership.

Ticket to Dream has given our kids in-care access to brand new backpacks and school supplies! One of my favorite stories is when one of our kids got to show off his new backpack in school - it was the first time he had a brand new backpack on the first day of school. He said he no longer felt left out and that he "fit in with everyone else." That's what it's all about: creating normal childhood experiences for our kids in-foster care - so they can just focus on being exactly what they are: A KID! :)

Ticket to Dream Foundation has changed the game for children living in foster care all over the US. This organization does a phenomenal job at networking, partnering, educating, and fundraising to get foster kids the things they need and deserve. One of my favorite things about TTD is that they ask and they listen to the people who are and have been doing the ground work in foster care for many years.
When COVID hit our country, TTD immediately responded with support to foster families. OUR foster kids need and deserve organizations like TTD. It takes a village... TTD gets it!

Thank you, Ticket to Dream Foundation, for your ongoing support and donations to Children's Fund. The ideal life of a child is one that consists of nurture and love. Many children are fortunate enough to have that and more, but others are abused, neglected, or impoverished. When children are taken away from those harsh environments and put into the foster youth system, it is a drastic change. This change can cause children to become confused and overwhelmed. Luckily, there are organizations such as Ticket to Dream Foundation that help, with tangible items and donations that extend our arms in supporting children across San Bernardino County. With your support, we will continue to work toward our vision of a bright future for every child.

Through the years, Ticket to Dream has provided tremendous support for the foster youth we serve, from necessities like clothing and laptops, to amazing opportunities like holiday gifts and sports tickets. Last year, when distributing donated winter boots, at least one pair was received with tears of happiness - so great was the need that had now been met.

San Diego Foster Parent Association has been a recipient of Ticket to Dream monetary and in kind donations for several years. We especially appreciate their funding of extracurricular activities which gives our foster children the opportunity to have enriching, fun activities that help to normalize their lives while they cannot be with their own families. Our Extended Foster Care youth, ages 18-21, are really helped with donations towards school needs, basic needs, clothing, and gift cards as many are transitioning on their own into adulthood and have no family support. Ticket to Dream has been the most consistent contributor to our non profit organization and we hope they will get the recognition they deserve.

I'm so extremely grateful for Ticket to Dream Foundation and their support to the UC Davis Guardian Scholars Program. Working with them to provide the necessary support for our current and former foster youth students has been amazing. They care about all of our students and, with their help, we were able to provide emergency grants to our students during the initial months of COVID, assist with housing deposits and orientation fees for our new students, food gift cards, laptops, and provide school supplies.

The South Carolina Youth Advocate Program (SCYAP) is so very grateful for all of the support from Ticket to Dream Foundation (TTD). I almost don't know where to start! They help our children in so many different ways. This organization calls to see if they can help when natural disasters strike, help support our foster families during the pandemic, supply back to school supplies, clothing, toys, gifts, celebrate graduations, and other special events in their lives. The support for extracurricular and normalcy activities is also very important to the children in our care. Many of these children have never had these special opportunities before and they have created many warm and lasting memories thanks to Ticket to Dream. Our Treatment Coordinators have told me how much the school supplies have helped our children, especially this year, as just receiving that backpack filled with supplies has created a feeling of some form of normalcy and also hopefulness. One of our foster Moms sent in a photo of her young foster sons opening their backpacks with big smiles on their faces and wearing Santa hats! She said they were so excited that it seemed like Christmas morning- so they just went with that feeling for a full on celebration! :) Thank you TTD for all that you do to support our special foster children!!!

Ticket to Dream is an amazing organization! I cannot even begin to tell you how much they have helped our foster parents and the foster children in our care at the South Carolina Youth Advocate Program! Ticket to Dream provides clothing, school supplies, stuffed animals, graduation gifts, Christmas gifts, gift cards, and so much more for our foster children. You can imagine how special it makes our children feel when they receive a congratulations and gift card for graduation or a new backpack to start off school. Ticket to Dream also supports our children by helping them to participate in "normalcy activities", which means extracurricular activities, sports teams, etc. When I say they really think of everything - I mean it! They have helped support our foster parents by helping when storms come through and tear off roofs- and they help us with new mattresses and bedding, etc. for the foster children affected. They even help with hurricanes and supporting these foster families through the evacuation process. They just know what to do to help support our foster children and foster parents and I feel so fortunate that they are there and are willing to help us! THANK YOU Ticket to Dream!!!

It's hard not to love Ticket to Dream. I work for a CASA program. When COVID-19 arrived on the scene, Ticket to Dream was one of the first foundations to reach out and ask US what OUR needs were.

They are always asking, "How can we help?" What a refreshing and impactful, child welfare partner.

I work for a CASA program, providing mentoring and advocacy for children in foster care. So frequently, these young people have to forego the simple pleasures of just being a kid, care-free and having fun.

I wish everyone could see the looks on foster children's faces when they receive an item; it could be a coat, pjs, toys... that we received from Ticket to Dream Foundation. It often means that they have clean/unstained clothing, it often means that they have clothes/shoes that are not too big or too small, it is often the first time they have received a new toy.

The work that they do "behind the scene" to ensure that foster children have items that they need. It increases the child's self respect and confidence.

We have been grateful to see the growth in our partnership with the Ticket to Dream Foundation. Their outreach efforts and mission to provide opportunity and normalcy to children in foster care align perfectly with may things CHOICES has been doing for years. TDF has allowed for us to expand our offerings to youth in our programs. One of the greatest benefits is the awareness they bring to foster care and the needs of our kids on the national stage. As smaller non-profit in Ohio with a much smaller budget their marketing and involvement across the US helps start the conversation about helping our kids! Their team is amazing to work with and they put a lot of thought and effort into their processes and partnerships. All interactions have been ethical and transparent and they share the same accountability standards in usage of in-kind donations and funds that CHOICES uses. TDF has helped us to meet urgent needs of our kids but also give them a chance to DREAM. Recently, Dayton, Ohio was devastated by an outbreak of tornadoes. TDF was able to help our foster families with their disaster relief fund. This was something totally unexpected and much appreciated. Furthermore, our kids have enjoyed so many awesome experiences such as the Ohio State Fair and a trip to Orlando, Florida for our aging out youth. We love that they are helping our kids live their vision and have built the same level of trust with partners and their donors as we do in our small corner of Ohio.

All things to help foster youth feel "normal."

A Kid's Place is so very grateful to work with the Ticket to Dream Foundation! There generous gifts and drives provide much needed essential items for our foster children as well as send them on fun trips that their peers get to attend. This year with funds donated through their normalcy campaign we were able to send our children to Busch Gardens and blockbuster movies this summer creating memories that last a lifetime and gives them experiences they can share with their peers when returning to school!

Here at Sierra Forever Families, we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work with the Ticket to Dream Foundation and team. Ticket to Dream is our main provider of tangible goods; their generosity and support make a world of difference in the lives of the youth and children we serve. Through the Ticket to Dream GoPlay! program our youth have the opportunity to engage in extracurricular activities, which greatly enriches their lives. Being exposed to new and different activities encourages our youth to nurture a skill, discover a new-found interest, or simply engage in the world around them. We can't say enough about Ticket to Dream and all that they do in our community!
