Adopt a Family Closed for 2019
Thank you so much to everyone who reached out to us to participate in our Adopt a Family program this year. We praise God that over 125 families have been adopted this Christmas. That's the good news. The bad news is that we are no longer accepting requests to adopt a family. It's not that we don't want to, it's the fact we have run out of time. As you know, we are preparing to move into our new facility beginning on December 18. With that in mind, we need to have all Christmas gifts distributed by December 15 so we can devote our time to our move.
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for supporting our Adopt a Family program in 2019. We greatly appreciate your support.
Have you thought about doing something different during the holidays? The St. Francis House offers a great opportunity for families, co-workers or church groups to make a difference in the lives of a family through our Adopt a Family holiday giving event.
The St. Francis House connects families who want to provide a Christmas for another family who may be struggling to make ends meet. Depending on the size of your group, you can choose the appropriate family size. When you are matched with a family, we will provide you with a gift list, including sizes for clothing. There are three family sizes from which to choose:
There are other ways in which to give if you do not want to adopt a family. Here's a list of other ways to spread holiday cheer:
