About Adopt A Family L.A.|
The Adopt A Family Program will once again be helping families for the 2013 Holiday Season. Last year’s program was immensely successful. Donors helped to provide gifts to over 50 families who were receiving homeless or transitional housing service.
This year the Adopt A Family program is proud to announce its continued partnership with Hollywood Community Housing Corporation (HCHC). HCHC is a community-based non-profit corporation that preserves and expands the supply of affordable housing for lower income households. They do so by providing homes for large families, seniors and Special Needs residents (those living with HIV/AIDS), many of whom have experienced homelessness.
The Adopt A Family program serves to help families who have a history of struggling with homelessness to have as normal a holiday as possible. When a family is homeless or in shelter, there are often very limited funds. Therefore, it is very difficult to provide any type of gift giving for the children. This is often a very low point for homeless families or families struggling to get back on their feet.
The Adopt A Family Program matches community members to families in need. The Adoptive Family chooses the size of the Family in Need that they are able to provide for and is provided with a Wish List personally filled out by that family. The Adoptive Family then chooses items from the list that they would like to provide to the Family in Need for the Holiday.
If you are interested in participating in this year’s program please click here and complete the contact form. Someone will then contact to match you with a family. You may also email Kristen Parraz at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions.
Help make this Holiday Program the most successful yet!
