Sponsor a family during the holiday season or all year long.

Make the holidays special for low-income women, teen parents, and their children with Holiday from the Heart.

Holiday from the Heart

Each sponsor receives a form listing the first names, ages, sizes, and interests of the family members as well as the holiday the family will be celebrating.

Sponsors deliver unwrapped gifts to our office. Additional volunteers will help wrap and deliver gifts to the families.

About the Families

Families sponsored in Holiday from the Heart are participants in The Center Foundation's WomenCare program , Young Parents Support Network or TeenCare.

Our families range in size from single women, a mother with one infant, to families of 6 or more. If sponsoring a whole family seems difficult, consider asking some friends to team up with you or simply tell us what you can do and we'll combine your giving with that of others.

 

Sponsor a Family All Year

Many of our families experience difficult times throughout the year, not just at the holidays.

Our families often have real needs for basic household items and furnishings, particularly when moving into new living quarters. New babies, especially, place a strain on families. And the birthdays of the teens, moms and their children happen all year long. So we're expanding our Holiday from the Heart program to all year.

If you would like to sponsor a family throughout the year, you can help by making a cash donation. For specific information about "adopting" a family, contact Jane Todd, Program Director, at Jane@TheCF.org.

 
"The best gift was knowing that there are still kind and generous people like you who still exist... If it were not for you, [my son] and I would not have celebrated Christmas for the first time in 16 years."
