Double the Impact of Your Gift!

Now through Jan.1, 2020 your donation will go twice as far to support homeless or at-risk families this season. Many thanks to the generosity of the Adelaide Breed Bayrd Foundation who is matching all monetary gifts, one-to-one, up to $50,000. Please help us meet this goal…so that we can help families reach their goals.

Holiday Gift Drive – Something Different in 2019!

Every year we experience a shortage of gifts for the older children, ages 11-18, in our programs. Yet these children tend to experience more negative life events and have a greater stress exposure and fewer resources than low-income children of similar background whose families have housing.

While we know it is so much fun to buy toys for the little ones, we are seeking donations for older children this year. For our younger ones, Housing Families is working with local organizations like the Salvation Army, Toys for Tots, and Cradles to Crayons to be sure all families can have a special holiday. For our older children and teens, the greatest needs are:

Gift Cards: Target, Walmart, Visa/Mastercard, Amazon, CVS, Kohl’s (any amount)

Sports Equipment: basketballs, soccer balls, footballs, baseballs, and gloves

Art Supplies: colored pencils, paint, brushes, and  adult coloring books/sketch pads

Journals: a blank journal or one with daily prompts

Experience Passes: movies, museums (Aquarium/Science), trampoline parks, Boda Borg, LegoLand

Personal Care: make-up, body wash, lotion, perfume, razors, and shaving gel

We request that all gifts are new & unwrapped, and delivered by end of the day on Friday, December 13. Thank you!
