The goal of The Birthday Party Project is that each homeless child in North Texas and beyond experiences a birthday party and has the opportunity on their special day to feel celebrated. We want them to swell with excitement and pride as friends and family gather around to watch them blow out candles and dream of more. We want to make birthday wishes come true.
