Liz and her twin daughters love their Adopt-a-Family gifts!


Celebrate a family's school attendance achievement by creating a Family Fun Kit!

Formerly homeless families participating in Simpson Housing Services' Family Housing program are striving to attend school 95% or higher, or make a 10% increase in school attendance from one quarter to the next. We know that school attendance is critical to learning and families are working hard to achieve their goals.
