Our Mission Statement
Our Mission: To ensure that Foster Care Children know that someone cares.
Our Signature Events
Holiday Toy Event- Throughout the years, we have gathered new toys, books, CD's, clothing, basketballs and gift cards for children in the Los Angeles County Foster Care system. Thanks to our generous donors, the Holiday Gift Giveaway and Holiday Party grows larger and larger yearly, allowing Working Dreams to service increasingly more Foster Children. The Working Dreams Gift Giveaway and Holiday Party is the largest gift giveaway for Foster Youth on the West Coast.
In 2015, on day of the event, we gifted approximately 1000 Foster children. We partnered with the Culver City Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Youth Foundation to increase our reach to Foster Children and ultimately helped over 15, 000 Foster Children have a Happy Holiday!
We have steadily increased the reach of our Holiday Toy Event and in 2017, we reached over 17,500 children with the Culver City Police and DCFS, The Department of Children and Family Services.
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. Professional Make-up artists from Beyond Beauty, a non-profit organization who mentor Foster Care children, spend the day and offer tips and advise for prom make-up and hair. The girls also receive hair care products and Payless Gift Cards. We host between 300 and 400 girls at the Prom Dress Event.
