Individuals, families and organizations "adopt" clients by providing Christmas gifts for the children and a basket of household items for the family.
Give Families Hope for Christmas
Does your church, organization or family want to spread hope and cheer this holiday season? Over 100 new client families are invited to participate in our confidential Christmas Family “adoption” program. Families will receive gifts for their children and a basket of food and household items to help make their holidays less stressful, as well as remind them that our community cares.
Call 997-9756 to “adopt” a family today and make the holidays brighter for a family in need.
Christmas Family Distribution
Assistance is provided for housing, utilities, child care, medications, emergency medical procedures, dental, hearing and vision expenses.
Counseling & Domestic violence support
Victims of physical, emotional and sexual abuse receive critical counseling by licensed professionals. As they get their lives back on track, clients are also provided budgeting, goal-setting and financial planning assistance.
Needs Council volunteers provide “friendly support” to homebound seniors and rides to medical appointments since many have no family nearby. Community members adopt and provide gifts to these seniors and disabled adults at Christmas.
Child & Family Services
Children and their families are provided assistance with coats, school supplies, food, childcare, scholarships, parenting classes and Christmas assistance with the help of many community volunteers.
