The Adopt-a-Family program will launch in October 2020. In the meantime, you can support our families throughout the year, and especially those most vulnerable during the COVID-19 crisis, by making a donation online here

The holidays can be a time of joy and togetherness, but for many low income families it is the time of year they dread. These families are already making tough decisions, such as paying their rent or purchasing groceries, so holiday gifts are often out of the question. 

With your help, hundreds of Lifeline families can be supported this holiday season! The toys, clothing, gift cards, and household essentials collected for Lifeline’s families in need, help to give them a little extra help, and a very happy holidays.

To sign up to be matched with a Lifeline family to adopt, please fill out the Adopt a family inquiry form and email it to 

We will then send you a "family profile" where you will find the family’s story, sizes for clothing, shoes, and other basics, as well a “wish list” of items they would really like.

Important Dates to Remember:
October 1st- 31st-- Family forms submitted and processed by Lifeline staff
October 15th- December 5th-- Adoption begins! Donors are matched with Lifeline families
December 14th- Donation Drop-off Party! Gifts are due to the Vista Campus

If you or your group do not wish to adopt a family this year, you can still make a difference by supporting Lifeline clients in other ways this holiday season. Please consider:

Every year we have the privilege of matching individuals, families, co-workers, neighbors, churches, and companies to our Lifeline community members in need of support. We see firsthand how generous donors step up to ensure that not one person was forgotten, and for that we are truly grateful! Our Lifeline families were overwhelmed by your kindness too… here’s what some of them had to say:
