Cake4Kids serves at-risk and underserved youth
Cake4Kids partners with agencies that support youth (ages 1-24) who are at-risk or underserved, including youth in foster care, group homes, homeless shelters, transitional and low income housing, domestic violence or human trafficking shelters, substance abuse programs, and refugees.

California counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Fresno, Marin, Napa, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara.
Virginia counties: Fairfax
The youth who receive our cakes come from different circumstances, but they have one thing in common: it hasn't been the easiest route. Many have moved from place to place, some have suffered abuse, some have seen a parent involved in domestic violence, and some have even had to endure human trafficking.
Nationwide, there are over 400,000 children in foster care
1 child enters foster care every 2 minutes
On average, a child stays in foster care for 2-3 years, and many end up staying in care for 5+ years
Youth in foster care will change homes 3+ times
Each year, 20,000 kids in foster care are left to care for themselves because they are too old and no longer qualify for placement with families or agencies
One child in every 30 is homeless in the United States
Human trafficking is the second largest international crime industry, worth $32 billion annually
60% of victims of human trafficking are former foster youth
15.5 million children live in families where domestic violence occurred at least once in the past year
Children remain amazingly resilient even in the worst of circumstances but often suffer from self-esteem issues and withdraw into themselves. At Cake4Kids, our goal is to show them that we care and raise their self-esteem by delivering a smile on their birthday.
