Adopt-A-Family Give Joy & Hope

Make the holidays a little brighter for families in need in Columbus, Ohio.

Give Hope for the Holidays

Throughout the year, many families struggle to put food on the table or find a safe place to sleep at night. When the holiday season comes around, many of these families can’t afford gifts to celebrate the season. You can give them hope through Adopt-A-Family. 

When you "adopt" a family, you are taking away a big financial hurdle for families in need by donating Christmas presents they otherwise wouldn't have. The Adopt-A-Family program benefits the families in our Columbus, Ohio housing programs – families who are homeless or at-risk of being homeless and struggling to make ends meet.  

UPDATE: All 2021 families have been adopted!

While all our families have been adopted this year, there are still many families and individuals that you can give hope to. If you'd still like to support your community, we have many families and individuals in need of Welcome Home Kits in the Columbus Area. Contact us today to see how you can help.

When you adopt a family, you’re spreading joy and giving hope in your community.

How Does It Work?

  1. Sign Up! If you’re ready to help, reach out to Debra at debra.hughes@voaohin.org, or call 614.253.6100.
  2. Get Paired! We will pair you with a family and send you their family profile by early November. This will include a Christmas list of suggested items to purchase.
  3. Shop! When you adopt a family, you are under no obligation to spend a specific amount of money, though it is standard to give three gifts to each person, totaling under $100 per person.
  4. Wrap! After you’ve purchased your gifts, have a blast wrapping them.
  5. Drop-off! Drop times and days will be posted soon. All gifts should be wrapped and dropped off at our administrative office located at 1776 East Broad Street, Columbus Ohio 43203.**
