Adopt A Family

Support our Adopt A Family Program & Directly Impact Local Families In Need!

VOACC’s Adopt A Family program gives hope to many local children and families in need across The District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.

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!

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 Program makes the holiday special for the clients and individuals in our health and human services 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 Maryland, District of Columbia, or Virginia based supportive housing, intellectual/developmental disabilities, and veteran services programs. When you Adopt a House, you commit to purchasing holiday gifts and a special meal that several or more of our program participants can enjoy.

How can you help?

Starting now, VOACC will be accepting donations for individuals/families in need of support through  Adopt A Family and Adopt A Program. See below how you can get involved.
