“The fun of prom isn’t just about one night, it’s about the experience of a normal teenager as they hunt for that special dress and spend time preparing for the actual prom itself enjoying each passing hour as the anticipation builds... these kids didn’t choose their circumstances and they don’t deserve to be denied the American dream because of them either. Even if it is just for one night I want these individuals to know that they are worth something and that Orlando cares.”

founder of Prom for Dreams
Our mission is to connect with foster children in their last year of high school by providing normalcy through their prom experience.
As a community, the city beautiful rallies around the ideal of investing in the future by investing in the children of today. The importance of building self esteem through one night of teenage normalcy is resonating within the hearts of Central Florida. We are dedicated to providing high school level foster children with an uniquely memorable prom experience that would not be possible otherwise. This goal is accomplished with the help of local businesses and volunteers. We welcome you to be apart of this inspiring project.
