Thanks to the following who believe in the power of birthdays and help make Extra-Ordinary Birthdays' work possible.
Extra-Ordinary Birthdays is proud of and enjoys partnerships with shelters and organizations in the Washington Metropolitan areas. We welcome the opportunity to partner with other shelters and organizations that serve and support the homeless community. We recognize that ours is a community effort that enables us to be a part of helping homeless children survive a childhood most of us cannot imagine. If there is interest and belief that our program may be a good fit for a partnership, feel free to contact us at contact@extraordinarybirthdays.

The Extra-Ordinary Birthdays team gets input from the parents at homeless shelters to plan each party and customize the experience so that the parents and children get to choose a party theme, who they invite, the cake and gift. This approach gives the parents a sense of ownership and helps empower them in being part of their children's birthday. EOB works to alleviate the pressure on homeless parents as birthday celebrations are not always affordable and many homeless parents do not have the resources to celebrate this milestone. Birthdays matter to kids who may not have a permanent home or many special family members. EOB supports homeless parents and their children by bringing all the elements of normalcy and joy that a birthday celebration is able to provide.
Through parent evaluations, EOB continually monitors how we are doing and making sure we are delivering on our mission of providing personalized parties that make the children feel that they matter and that they are valued.
