What is Adopt A Family?
Adopt A Family was started in 2004 to help make the holidays merrier for the people we serve, including formerly homeless families and individuals. With CHN’s help, they are now in safe affordable housing but many are unable to provide holiday gifts for their families. Through our Adopt A Family program we ask donors to “adopt” an individual or family and provide gifts for the holidays.
Many of the participants we serve live on very low fixed incomes and have ongoing needs for even the most basic necessities. Warm coats, boots, hats and gloves are needed by many of the families, along with clothing and household items. For many, these will be the only gifts they receive at the holidays.
