Our mission

Our mission is to bring JOY to children living in homeless and transitional living facilities

We believe that JOY changes lives, and a JOYful community can change the world.

With the help of our birthday enthusiasts (that’s you!) we host monthly birthday parties at homeless and transitional living facilities across the country. We celebrate all children (ages 1-21) that have a birthday that month, and we invite all children and family members staying at the agency to join us for the party.

Our one hour celebration is a chance for kids to dream big! Our parties are so much more than a celebration – they are a loud exclamation point that kids matter!

It's easy to see our impact on the smiling faces of the children we celebrate, but we are also thrilled to say we have had:
