This holiday season, give a gift that will truly brighten the lives of families in metro Atlanta!

The holiday season can be an especially difficult time for the children and families we serve. Our Adopt-A-Family program connects sponsors with our clients in need. Whether you are looking to adopt a family for Thanksgiving or for the December holidays, or both, you have the opportunity to spread a little holiday cheer by selecting a family and making a donation. Knowing that someone cares can give the word “holiday” a whole new meaning!
How it works

We provide a family profile and detailed wish list for each of our clients. Sponsors then “adopt” a family and purchase the items on their wish list. 

Gifts must be delivered to our main office prior to the holidays during the designated dates provided for the months of November and December. Families First staff will then deliver the gifts to the families! 

If Adopting for Thanksgiving
We ask that you provide a $25 gift card for the grocery store listed so the family can purchase a turkey.

If Adopting for December
If you're adopting a family for the December holidays and are planning on providing a gift card in addition to general wish list requests or in response to specific gift card requests, we suggest that you provide cards no greater than $25-$50.
