Our GoPlay! Program Helps Foster Kids Find Joy

There are 400,000 foster youth in the system. The stipend to help raise these children barely covers the essentials, let alone the extras that create happy childhood memories. That's where you can help. Ticket to Dream's GoPlay! program brings normal childhood experiences to foster youth across the nation. Its goal is to widen horizons, teach important life skills and bring joy through access to extra-curricular activities and experiences.

Your online donation will create experiences that widen horizons, bring joy, create wonder and show thousands of foster youth that they matter to us. Often times, a first trip to the zoo, seeing their favorite team take the field, or just trying something new allows foster children to connect with other children around them, builds self-confidence and boosts self-esteem.

"Letting kids be kids is so important. It's healthy! Youth in care have too much on their plates and being able to participate in activities that other kids their age are doing is huge." -Ticket to Dream Non-Profit Partner

Getting to experience the joy of a gift under the tree, a trip to the zoo or joining a sports team. It's ensuring they have vital services and support that allow them to heal and grow to reach their full potential.
