Our Story

Extra-Ordinary Birthdays strives to give that back to families living in shelters who otherwise would not have the means to celebrate their child’s birthday.

Every child, especially kids living without many of the things that we count on…sleeping in the same bed each night, breakfast on the table, safety in the home… deserves to know that their birthday is special, and that their growth matters.

Through the celebration of each child’s birthday, we become part of a wonderful opportunity to create a moment that will become a positive part of their life of memories.

Celebrations Include: decorations, snacks, supplies and activities, and a gift for the birthday child.

The Extra-Ordinary Birthdays team prepares the location and plans for the event—reflecting the special interest of the birthday child.

Our Vision

A community that recognizes the transformative power of birthday celebrations for homeless children, one that empowers their caregivers, and inspires moments of joy and happiness in the lives of homeless families.
