Adopt-a-Family Driven by Lexus of Calgary: We did it!

Thanks to you, all families have been supported for the holiday season! But there is still time to make a year-end gift; please consider supporting Seasons of Hope.

Seasons of Hope helps vulnerable families year-round by providing vital resources in a time of urgent need. Support could take the form of rent subsidies, grocery gift cards, covering past due bills, and more.

When a family is experiencing a crisis, community members like you can offer a safety net through the Seasons of Hope.

Thank you to our 2023 Adopt-a-Family Sponsors!

Frequently Asked Questions for Donors

Each family will be provided with gift cards to help them purchase gifts, groceries and needed items for their family. Items frequently in need include bedding, grocery gift cards, kitchen tools, clothing and more.

All Adopt-a-Family recipients are currently receiving services at Closer to Home or have been referred by a Family Support Worker or one of our partner agencies.

After the 2020 holiday season forced a change in our Adopt-a-Family process of receiving items for families, we requested feedback from our stakeholders (including donors, gift recipients and support workers) about how it went for families served. As a result of those conversations, Closer to Home recognized that financial donations are the most impactful and meaningful way we can support our families through community giving.

By providing gift cards to deserving families, they are empowered to make decisions that best meet the immediate needs of their family.

Thank you for continuing to participate in this vital initiative to support vulnerable families!

In order to help even more families, Closer to Home has created this special fund that will support families in need year-round. The Seasons of Hope Fund will help families avoid eviction, keep the lights on at home, put food on their table and more. Not only will you be supporting a family at Christmas time, a portion of your donation will be pooled with others to support multiple families year-round.
