Worthdays is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to mobilize our community to ensure that those impacted by the foster care system know that they are important, worthy and celebrated. Through the excitement of celebrating, we are engaging our community in a way that raises awareness and increases positive outcomes for our local foster care system. Through partnerships with local Departments of Social Services we are able to meet some of the very basic needs of kids in our foster care system while also using every opportunity possible to send the message that ‘you are so worth it.’

Worthdays is only possible because of the generosity and kindness shown by our community who join us in believing that kids in our local foster care system are worthy of being celebrated.
As a growing, volunteer led and supported organization, we depend on the generosity of those who help us in many different ways throughout the year. We believe there is a place every single person can help whether through spreading the word to friends about our organization, helping with a special project or making a financial donation.
Our biggest project throughout the year is celebrating birthdays of children and youth in our local foster care system (and those who have aged out of our foster care system). You can help by creating and donating a personalized birthday box for a specific child in foster care!
