Birthday Wishes is a nonprofit organization that provides birthday parties for homeless children living in over 185 family homeless shelters and transitional living facilities throughout New England. They believe that all children, regardless of their living situation, should celebrate their birthdays joyfully, surrounded by family, friends, and others who care. Last year, more than 19,000 homeless children experienced the magic of a Birthday Wishes birthday party, thanks to Birthday Wishes and the 500 volunteers who support its mission every month.
