Registration for Adopt-A-Family is now over for 2021, but you can still help a family in our programs! Make a donation here, donate an Urgent Needs Basket, or purchase an item on our Wish List.

Thank you to all of the generous individuals, families, groups, and organizations who registered to sponsor families at Avivo for Adopt-A-Family this year!

Avivo’s Adopt-A-Family Holiday Gift Giving Program matches families who are currently participating in an Avivo program with community sponsors who anonymously provide gifts for the holidays. Join our Adopt-A-Family holiday gift program, with a goal of helping 500 families have a happy, holiday season.

“One of our kids said, ‘This is the best Christmas ever!’”


Here’s how it works:

As a donor, you will be matched with as many individuals & families as you like. We ask donors to spend a maximum of $50-$75 per individual. Depending on the number of individuals that you choose to support, you’ll be matched with one or more families. In the spirit of our families receiving equitable support, if you are willing to spend more than the spending limit, we encourage you to register to support more individuals, thus supporting more families.

The timeline:

Registration is closed for 2021, but typically begins in fall.

Second week of November: Donors and families will be matched. Donors will then be contacted individually with family information. At this time, donors will also receive a link to register for a day and time to deliver the gifts to one of eight Avivo offices.

First full week of December: Donors will drop off gifts. Volunteers will be present at each site to accept and organize each of the gift sets. If you are interested in volunteering to accept and organize gifts, please contact Brittany Biggers.

If you are unable to sponsor a family, but would still like to help, please consider:
