Holiday Giving

Each year, Providence House helps families in crisis enjoy a special holiday season.

The Adopt-A-Family program is our annual drive to provide gifts to homeless families in the Providence House Program. It is an opportunity to make a huge difference in the lives of families by providing them with a joyous holiday season. Sponsors “adopt” a family and purchase gifts from a wish list written by the recipient.

The Adopt-A-Family program is designed to encourage individuals, churches, groups, and businesses to spread holiday cheer by sponsoring a family in need. Download and submit the Sponsor Form no later than Friday, November 18, 2022.

Holiday Baskets


Help feed a homeless family this holiday season

Providence House is currently helping about 80 families every day. You can provide a Thanksgiving or Holiday Basket to one of these families and give them the opportunity to enjoy the kind of meal that you will enjoy this Thanksgiving or Holiday Season.

We are asking that you help to provide a turkey or ham with all of the fixings. Our families vary in size, but we would like each basket to be able to feed about 6 people.

Find suggested items, delivery instructions, and important dates by clicking one of the following:  THANKSGIVING or HOLIDAY.
