Adopt a Family

Information for Sponsors participating in the Adopt-A-Family Program

The Holiday season is a joyful time. Holiday shoppers make their lists while children start dreaming of presents. It is during this time of year that many of the children and their families that we serve are in need of a meal and gifts. You can help by adopting a family.

Organize a group in your office or church and adopt a family! (link to sponsorship form). You may bring the food and presents straight to the family’s home or to our office.

Sponsors participate by donating a Thanksgiving Dinner and/or dinner and gifts for the December Holiday. You can purchase food, gift certificates or provide monetary support.

For more information, please download the Adopt-A-Family Sponsorship Form (link to form) and return by fax, mail or email. In addition, we have attached a guide (link to guide) on how we will work together in making the holidays of needy families very special.

Please note that a commitment response is needed for the Thanksgiving sponsorship by October 15th, and for the December holiday by November 15th. You may contact us via email at or phone at 703-372-5440.

Thank you for your generosity!

Meet happy clients from our Adopt-A-Family program!

Information for Families participating in the Adopt-A-Family Program

Every year HCSNV assists families during the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays by matching each participating family with a corporate or private sponsor who provides meals and gifts for the family.

Low and moderate income families with minor children are encouraged to apply (link to application)

Applying does not guarantee participation. The number of families who get a matching sponsor depends on the number of sponsors participating in the program.

All families participating in the program must receive individual financial counseling, and participate in a financial workshop (link to workshops).
