Welcome to Market 18
Market 18 is a program of Dream Makers, an independent nonprofit that is on a mission to change the lives of youth who have aged out of foster care.
Market 18 was created with the heart to financially support youth who are aging out of the foster care system at 18 – and to raise awareness.
All items and designs are handmade by former foster youth!
FULFILL A DREAM
Every year, 23,000+ teenagers exit the foster care system without a family to help them transition into adulthood. You can fulfill a dream to help remove barriers that stand in the way of the empowered and connected lives these youth dream of having.
Your donation helps foster youth that age out at 18 years old, when they need it most. These youth become alarmingly vulnerable – left to fend for themselves during a pivotal point of life, but you can change that.
