Adopt a Family

Adopt-a-Family matches client families with people in our community who are able to provide a holiday gift for each family member.

Help Families Have a Bright Holiday

During the holidays many of us take time to reflect on what brings us joy – family and friends, laughter and love, health and stability. For families who may feel overwhelmed or have to make decisions about paying bills, keeping the heat on, or getting food on the table, the thought of buying gifts can seem unattainable.

In 2019, our supporters adopted 169 families. This year, we have reached our goal and are beginning to match 215 families with donors.

HOW IT WORKS

Bringing holiday cheer to an Any Baby Can client family is easy. We have client families both large and small that need gifts this holiday season. Sign up by October 30!

Step 1

We'll match you with a specific family depending on how much you're able to give.

Step 2

You'll be notified by mid-November of which family you've been matched with.

Step 3

Purchase gifts off their wish list (about $50 per family member).

Step 4

Bring the wrapped gifts to our office in North Central Austin.

Step 5

We'll get your gifts to client families by mid-December.

Tips for Giving

  • Enlist your family, coworkers and neighbors to pitch in on buying gifts or signing up to adopt families!
  • Remember to include batteries for any items that require them.
  • Consider donating gift bags, wrapping paper and tape.
  • If you don’t have time to purchase gifts, consider donating directly to Any Baby Can so that we may purchase missing gifts for families.

CORPORATE HOLIDAY GIVING

Unique Giving Opportunity for Teams

If you're part of a team or company looking for a meaningful way to give back, we have a few families who have more extensive needs and could use your support.

Any Baby Can will work with you to match your group with a special family. We'll connect you to the family's case manager and you'll be given a detailed wish list – everything from clothing and therapeutic equipment to legal representation and home repairs.

For corporate giving opportunities, email Jennifer at JenniferN@anybabycan.org.

Meet Kayden

Many of our client families don’t have the money to provide a holiday experience that many of us take for granted. Kayden’s mom, Ashton, spends her money and time on medical bills, transportation, resources for her son, and other basic needs.

Gifts under the tree didn’t help Kayden learn to walk. Our physical therapists helped with that, along with the hard work of his mom and grandma. But Adopt-a-Family gifts did brighten this kiddo’s day and ease a young mom’s stress as she strives to provide her child the best life possible.

“Any Baby Can gave me Christmas gifts for my children when I couldn't buy them something. I noticed changes in myself all thanks to the counseling, and Any Baby Can. Thank y'all from the bottom of my heart.”

“I feel so supported. I still have stress in regards to my son’s development, but having a team to talk through and brainstorm my concerns with has given me peace of mind.”
