The Adopt a Family program supports individuals and families from the Triangle, and provides them with year-round support in the form of meals, groceries, clothing and household goods. Adopt a Family puts special emphasis on providing services during the back-to-school shopping season, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Adopt a Family may pay a utility bill or assist with enrollment fees for summer programs for children.
Twice a year a small number of families are invited to attend a life skills workshop that includes advice on budgeting, parenting, and personal hygiene. Upon completion of the workshop, participants receive, as incentive, clothing and a month’s worth of groceries.
Adopt a Family identifies families through referrals by agencies such as Durham Social Services and the Department of Parks and Recreation, senior & assisted living facilities and concerned community members.
The goal of the program is to help the families become self sufficient and eventually bring them back into the organization as volunteers or paid staff.
