Adopt A Child for Back to School


Adopt-A-Child for Back to School is a great way to help families prepare for the upcoming school year!

Adopt-a-Child for Back to School matches you to children that have left Haven House in the past year or currently live at the shelter. We ask the families what their children need for back to school and then you shop for those items. You provide them much needed items such as uniforms, coats, shoes, and play clothes.

Haven House started the Adopt-a-Child for Back to School program over 15 years ago to provide local children with new clothes and school supplies for the start of the school year. This program lets you pick one or more kids to help get ready for a productive year of learning.  All donations stay in our community and go directly to families who are current or former Haven House residents.  Last year, 113 local children received back to school clothes, backpacks and supplies thanks to supporters like you!

If you or your group would like to participate , please email our Volunteer & Special Projects Coordinator, Chequoya Spearman, or call her at (517) 337-2731.
