Homelessness and need do not take a break for the holidays and your support truly makes a difference in the lives of these families.

On average, 90 families are in our care at the holidays. The Adopt a Family program helps to bridge the gap from hopeless to hopeful – bringing joy to children and families. These families are taking the steps needed to achieve stable housing, but while struggling, there just aren’t enough resources to provide gifts, or even food or clothing, for their children.

When you are matched with a family, their information, including their first name, age, gender, and sizes, along with their wish list (with no one item valued at more than thirty dollars) will be sent to you. We will ask that all gifts be new, and you will be provided with the date to return the purchased, wrapped, and labeled gifts to the Shelter of Flint. It’s that simple!

For more information, please contact the Development Department at (810) 238-4711, ext. 305 or
