Vision, Mission, and Core Values

Creating & Providing Birthday Parties for Homeless Children

Every child especially those living without many of the necessities we take for granted - sleeping in the same bed every night, breakfast on the table, safety in the home - deserves to know that their birthday is special. They are important. Their growth matters. Through the customized celebration of kids' birthdays, the Extra-Ordinary Birthdays team fosters and creates moments of pure positivity for children and families; moments and memories that'll be woven into the patchwork of their lives.
