Adopt A Family: Making the Holidays Brighter for Those in Need

Updated: Sep 18, 2023

Neighborhood House's Adopt A Family program has been a cornerstone of community support for many years, uniting generous individuals and organizations with those who need a little extra help during the holiday season.


Bringing the joy of the season to our neighbors in need

From our offices in Wilmington and Middletown, our staff and volunteers manage the application process and ensure donors are made aware of the needs that exist, providing information on age, gender, clothing sizes, and special wishes. Last year alone, 365 households were able to experience the joy of the season thanks to the generosity of others.


For Adopt A Family to work, community participation is crucial — without donations of food and gifts this program would not be possible. Our Family Services team invites anyone interested in participating, whether as a recipient family or donor, to contact the Neighborhood House office closest to you.
