VOACC’s Adopt A Family program gives hope to many local children and families in need across The District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia and The Carolinas region.The mission of Adopt A Family is to connect families in need of assistance with those within the community who have a desire to make a difference – helping to make the holiday season a little brighter for our local neighbors in need!
Adopt A Family
Spread some holiday cheer!
How Does It Work?
Adopt A Family relies on the generosity of sponsors – either individuals, families, teams, organizations, and/or businesses – who commit to adopting a single family or multiple families. Then, the sponsor purchases and provides holiday gifts for each child in the family/families, as well as a special holiday meal for the family to enjoy.
Adopt A House makes the holiday special for the clients and individuals of our Behavioral Health and Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities programs via sponsorships for their homes. The adults in these programs are chronically mentally ill or have intellectual and developmental disabilities. They reside in our Carolinas region as well as in one of our Maryland, District of Columbia, or Virginia group homes that are unique family-style units. When you Adopt a House you will be purchasing holiday gifts for each family member, as well as a special holiday meal for the whole family to enjoy.
How can you help?
Starting now, VOACC will be accepting donations for individuals/families in need of support through our Adopt A Family and Adopt A House program. See below how you can get involved.
Adopt A Local Family In Need
Make the holiday season a little brighter for local children in need! When you commit to a direct adoption, we will pair you with a local family in need that has requested assistance this holiday season.
Adopt A House
Many of the people we serve live in group homes and have become like family to one another. When you commit to adopting a house you are helping our most vulnerable individuals of our Behavioral Health and Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities programs. Your support of our homes is greatly appreciated.
