Affording gifts and holiday meals puts many low-income families under great financial and emotional strain. With SELF’s annual Adopt-a-Family holiday program, you help us directly ease our clients’ seasonal burdens. Each sponsored family is enrolled in at least one of our goal-setting self-sufficiency programs. By becoming an Adopt-a-Family sponsor or donor, you can make the season truly bright for families that are working hard to build a better life.

SELF’s Adopt-a-Family Program offers many ways to spread cheer this holiday season!

Some gifts come in wrapped packages — other gifts can change someone’s life in a more intangible — yet very significant — way. Please consider these holiday donation options that give the gift of mobility; a hand-up out of poverty; a better job that pays a living wage; a more stable financial future — all very thoughtful gifts, indeed:

  • $500 sponsors a wheelchair ramp for a house-bound senior citizen.
  • $250 provides tools and supplies for a Build-up Academy student learning a marketable trade for stable employment.
  • $100 sponsors Getting Ahead program participants, providing the supplies, class materials and emergency supports to help them be successful on their path to self-sufficiency.
  • $75 prepares a JOBS NOW! program graduate with items needed to start a new job.
  • $50 covers an IDA program participant’s credit counseling session.
  • $25 covers the business application for a Microenterprise program participant…
  • And, a holiday financial gift of any amount adds up to accomplish the goals listed above, and many more, for SELF’s clients!
