Imagine waking up on Christmas morning to find nothing under your tree, or spending the holiday season worrying about whether you can pay your bills and still provide gifts for your family. For many of the families we serve, that situation is a reality.
But thanks to the Mission’s Adopt a Family program and sponsors like you, families struggling in homelessness and poverty will have Christmas delivered right to their door this year! The families you will sponsor this year are participating in one of our life-changing transitional programs:
- STAR Transitional Program
- Family Rescue Ministry
- Family Refugee Services
Compassionate sponsors purchase, wrap and hand-deliver gifts to these families, bringing a little hope during a difficult time of the year. Thank you for making a difference this Christmas by supporting the Mission or sponsoring a family.
Sponsor a Family This Christmas!
When you sponsor a family this year, you'll provide joy and dignity to a family transitioning out of homelessness and poverty.
Thank you for becoming an Adopt a Family sponsor today!

This Christmas season, sponsors like you in our Adopt a Family program will help bring Christmas cheer to families in need. As a sponsor, you will be asked to:
- Provide gifts for each child in a family. Gifts should include an item of new clothing and one or two new toys (Minimum of $40.00 to spend per child).
- Provide a gift or gifts for each adult in a family (Minimum of $25.00 per adult).
- Neatly wrap all gifts.
- Drop off gifts at the preferred physical address listed on the family’s wish list.
If you wish, you can also provide a gift certificate to a local grocery store to be used for purchasing Christmas dinner. This is a recommended additional gift, but it is not required.
The designated gift drop off date for this year is Saturday, December 15. Please make alternative arrangements with your assigned family if you wish to drop off gifts on a different date.
