Holiday Adopt a Family Program
As we enter this Holiday Season, most of us look forward to a joyful time with family and friends, but for the less fortunate households whom we serve here at Crisis House, the holidays are some of the most difficult times of the year. For many children, not being together as a family due to domestic violence abuse is an added strain during these times. The families we serve often feel discouraged because they don’t have the resources to make the holidays feel special for their children and so they turn to Crisis House for help.
Here at Crisis House, our mission is: We respond immediately to stop the cycle of domestic violence and homelessness and connect families and individuals to crucial resources that empower them to renew their lives.
With your generosity, we can be a beacon of hope for the families we serve. Last year, Crisis House created holiday cheer for 137 households and 364 children! As many of you know, Crisis House is moving to a new location before the end of the year! We are changing to a gift-card Holiday this year, instead of toy-exchange due to our pending move. We are hoping to provide families with gift cards ranging from $75 to $100 per family member for gifts and a special meal! Anyone who would like to sponsor a family please contact Jennifer Vokins by November 16th at (619) 444-1194.
We realize you receive many requests this time of year but we hope you consider supporting the needy families Crisis House serves this Holiday Season. We appreciate anything you, your friends, your business associates, or others can do to help Crisis House make this holiday season more joyful for those less fortunate families in our community.
