Together we give. Together we make a difference.

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Learn more about #GivingTuesday.

Adopt-A-Family

AAF graphic02

Women, children, youth and men in crisis arrive at our shelters and offices shaken by trauma and anxious about their future. Children ask “How will Santa know where to find us?” and parents worry about how they will afford the basic necessities, let alone presents. Through the spirit of giving, you help bring joy and hope to the individuals, families and youth who come through our doors every day.

Join us in this endeavor by adopting a youth or family, or by making a monetary donation to support our services for homeless youth and victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking.

This year we are doing things a bit differently than before. Due to Covid-19, the safety of our participants, team and YOU are our priority and therefore we are asking that you mail or drop off Gift Cards ($100 for an adult, $50 for a child) from stores such as Walmart, Target, Food-4-Less, etc. We are committed to bringing joy, hope and safety during this difficult time!
