Birthday Dreams for Children Experiencing Homelessness

By United Way of King County, on January 30, 2019 | In Emerging Leaders 365

The joy of opening birthday presents, blowing out the candles after your friends sing “Happy Birthday,” and, of course, cake. They’re such simple rites of childhood birthdays. But when you’re a kid experiencing homelessness, your family doesn’t often have the space or resources to throw a party.

That’s the reality of many kids in communities across King County.

It doesn’t have to be like that. Some of our Emerging Leaders have a unique view on this problem. They teamed up with Birthday Dreams to do something about it. Take a look!
