SUPPORT THE CHILDREN
The DFW Birthday Brigade serves up birthday magic for
unsheltered youth in DFW. Parties include presents and
cake, of course, but also a hot meal and amazing
entertainment. It's an opportunity for a child to feel
recognized on their special day.
Beyond the Birthday
By cultivating a movement to help educate homeless youth,
DFW Birthday Brigade serves as a resource to inspire youth to successfully transition into society. Educating economically underprivileged teens can afford them greater chances of developing safe and healthy lifestyles.
As of September 2019 the DFW Birthday Brigade has served over 3,300 individuals, celebrated 521 birthdays, and held 84 parties! This represents 29% of the unsheltered youth of Tarrant County! Additional resources provided include: blankets, pillows, and sleeping bags donated to the birthday children.

Providing birthday parties for unsheltered youth; offering encouragement, support, and programs to assist them in continuing their education.
Despite the limitations from the Covid virus, we have been able to serve the homeless youth in Tarrant County. We were able to bring them birthday presents, coats, blankets, pillows, gloves, hats, dental supplies, and though not able to provide full parties, let them know we care! These successes could not be achieved without support from our generous benefactors. Please know that your donation does make a genuine difference in the lives of many children!
Looking forward to 2022, we will be moving our efforts to Stephenville and providing birthday parties at Foster’s Home for Children. Their mission is to provide sanctuary and healing to children of trauma. Our goal is to begin with quarterly parties in March, June, September, and December.
