Here's how Adopt-A-Family works: 

• Our program has families that range in size from single clients to parents with six children

• You will shop for each member of the family, as well as provide boxes, wrapping paper, tape and bows to give to the client to wrap the gifts for their children. DO NOT WRAP GIFTS.

• Bring the gifts to our Holiday Donation Center in large plastic garbage bags. Secure the bags and tape your Family Code to the outside of the each bag.

Other ways to support The Family Place:

If you would like to support our families year-round, please consider donating a starter kit through our Safe & Sound Campaign. When clients leave our shelter we provide them with all of their basic needs for a new home. Help us keep them safe and sound by funding a one, two or three bedroom apartment.
