Adopt A Family

South Suburban Family Shelter, Inc. is looking for individuals, families or businesses interested in participating in its annual Adopt-A-Family Holiday Program. Adopt-A-Family is designed to help victims of domestic violence and their children during the holiday season. The victims and their children who participate in Adopt-A-Family are experiencing financial hardship as a result of their family circumstances. They would likely have nothing for the holidays without the help of generous donors. Donors purchase and wrap gifts for their adopted family.
