Fostering Dreams Foundation

A nonprofit organization

Fostering Dreams Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization founded by Vallery Mitchell of Dallas, Texas. Fostering Dreams Foundation started as Volley for the Children in 2015. Volley for the Children hosted charity volleyball tournaments which raised funds and items for children living in a foster care emergency shelter in Wichita Falls, Texas. Amid hosting events, Vallery noticed how the organization had outgrown their name and created a new name and mission. In 2018, Volley for the Children officially became Fostering Dreams Foundation. To date, Fostering Dreams Foundation has served over 100 foster youth and 30 foster parents. Fostering Dreams Foundation Board is comprised of 5 hand selected individuals and a junior board member devoted to advocating for the children in the foster care system and economically disadvantaged communities. All services provided by Fostering Dreams Foundation are donated from selfless service providers within the community.
