Adopt-A-Family for Christmas 2021

Adopt-A-Family for Christmas matches donors to former clients of Haven House or families that currently live at the shelter. We ask families what their needs and wants are as they are in their first year of stable housing. We also ask what clothing, shoes, and coat sizes are needed for their children and provide you with their wish lists. Every year we hear how thankful they are for the help and support through this program, so we hope you’ll join us for Adopt-A-Family for Christmas 2021! 

How to Adopt a Family

The list of available families will be below for you to select the family size of your choice and their wish lists are linked so you can download them right away! Once you select a family please email the family # to the Volunteer & Projects Manager, so your family can be removed from the list, marked as adopted, and we can keep track of those families still in need. Do not begin shopping for your family until you receive email confirmation the family has been adopted by you and being removed from the list as some families are selected after hours or over the weekend and the list has not been updated.

Gifts should be new and should not be wrapped, but we do ask that you label the gifts for each individual family member and include wrapping paper and tape during drop off.

Gifts will be dropped off at Haven House by appointment only between the weeks of December 1st-17th, no unscheduled drop-offs.
When you are finished shopping, please call the number below or email to schedule a drop-off during regular business hours.

*New families will be added up until Christmas as their wish lists come in so continue to check the site for updates.*
