My family is wanting to adopt a needed family for Christmas this year. Does anyone know where I could find this. I have looked into Salvation Army but they only have it where you adopt a child. Any help would be great!


What can I do next?

You might try calling churches in your area. Or if you have a church as them. But yeah most that I have seen are just for the child. Good luck!

Cornerstone Assistance Network (CAN) is a great organization that has a tremendous outreach to those in need. They do have names of families needing adopton for Christmas. I would recommend them since they throughly check out the needs of the family and you know you are helping someone who really needs the help.

You can contact the office of David Cook at Harris and COok Law firm in Mansfield. They organize a Christmas party for local kids every year at the Mansfield Activities Center. You can get information for as few or as many kids and families as you would like to help. They will give you the info on the kids' wants, needs, ages and sizes. They then throw a party with food and Santa for the familes which you and your family can participate in. It really ets your kids connect with those they are helping and it is all local families. I wish I had the contact email and phone number, but have misplaced it.

Of course I do not know if anyone will see this, but I am trying every avenue that I can. My family and I need help this Christmas season. I have 4 kids, 2 of which stay with me and 2 of which I will go and see Christmas Day. I would like to be able to give all of my kids at least one or two things. And my boyfriend and I both are in great need of clothes, for all seasons. I am not one who would usually even ask for help but, we really need it. Also, if anyone know of a job that will hire people with a background. Please let me know, it is hard for me to find a job because of my background. My email is or you can call and leave a message with any information at ###-###-####, I do live in Lewisville, TX. May God Bless all of you!

You might try calling a church near you. Pastors always seem to know who needs what. Another idea would be to call the counselor at a local school. They often know which families are struggling. Hope the blessings flow right back to you!
