The Social Work department will assist some of our patients and families again this holiday season through their annual Adopt-A-Family program, and they need your help.
How are families selected?
Families needing assistance are identified by the Social Work team. Every family has a child being treated at Children's for a chronic, critical or terminal illness.
Who can adopt a family?
Any individual, department, family, classroom, office, etc., can adopt a family.
How do I learn more?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact information and you will be sent all the information on the Adopt-A-Family program and what you need to do to adopt a family for the holidays. The drop off date is Friday, Dec. 13.
Social Work has been running the Adopt-A-Family program at Children’s since 1987. Approximately 49 families were adopted by 40 departments through the 2012 Adopt-A-Family program.
