Our Adopt-a-Family Program is Open!
Due to popular demand, sponsor enrollment is now CLOSED. For more ways to help and give back this holiday, please follow us on social media and sign up to our monthly newsletter.
Each year for the holidays, Babies of Homelessness pairs local children experiencing homelessness with those willing to give.
BoH launched its annual Adopt-A-Family program 4 years ago, and its success would not be possible without support from the community. Last year, Adopt-A-Family program had 40 sponsors supporting 100 families for the holiday season.
Now it’s time to do it again! Here’s how it works:
Registered community sponsors browse family profiles and select families with newborns to children up to 12th grade.
Each child creates a wish list. Gifts are purchased, wrapped, tagged, and dropped off at our collection point prior to delivery. Location address and hours will be provided via email.
Families pickup their gifts on December 14, 1 to 8 pm.
