Christmas Donations & Adopt-a-Family

Gifts for Adopt a Family.png

Exchange Family Center partners with parents and teachers to help them build stronger relationships with the children in their care. These relationships are the foundation of children building their ability to develop self-control, to successfully express their feelings, and to be resilient in the face of trauma and toxic stress. For more than 25 years, we have been there to strengthen families and create happier childhoods.

Now, we are here to do more for our families around the holidays! The Exchange Family Center’s (EFC) Adopt-a-Family campaign is about helping families most in need during the holiday season. Many of the families who work with EFC struggle financially - 47% of families who receive EFC’s in-home parenting coaching earn less than $25,000 annually - making the holidays stressful. We want to do our part and help make this year’s holiday season less trying for those parents who struggle with the choice of gifts for their children or the basic necessities.

Will you help?

We welcome you to Adopt-a-Family and help spread holiday cheer for those families who may need a little extra support or you can make a donation to help provide the things families need to make their holidays spectacular this year. More information on families selected for adoption will be provided as it becomes available. Check our page periodically for updates! Information on our first family is now available.
