How to Adopt

HOW TO SIGN UP TO HELP

                       


Adopt-A-Family keeps a data bank of families and groups wanting to help.

All families needing assistance are screened before entering the program.

Families giving help are screened to determine the household resources available. This way we can match the helping family resources with the family seeking assistance needs.

The family or group giving assistance will know the background information on the family in need....children ages.....family needs.....why they were homeless, etc! The family receiving assistance will not know the information on the group or family giving assistance.

To register...simply call the hotline (504)831-4312 and leave a message, or fill out the form below, email the form back and I will contact you to answer all your questions and sign you up to help a needy family.

Remember, no money is required to help a family...just alot of extra household items and your time & effort

Testimonial for a family giving help:

NOTE: YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO DELIVER AS MUCH AS THIS FAMILY DID. THIS IS TO SHOW HOW MUCH THEY ENJOYED MEETING THEIR FAMILY

Hi Kevin,
 
The collection and delivery went well! A friend of mine ordered a refridgerator for the family less than a week after you sent me their information. Then, on Sunday, Dec 22nd, my husband and I got a Uhaul truck and brought them a single bed, table and chairs, rocking chair, bookshelves, microwave and small tv (The TV is not digital but it works with the Wii we gave them along with a bunch of games.) We also brought a bunch of clothes for the two younger children, a couple of jackets for the older ones, a ton of toys for the littlest girl, and plenty of towels, sheets, dishes, a vacuum, broom, mop and some cleaning supplies. I also had a washing machine delivered to her on Dec 27th. (I need to call her to make sure it arrived.) Oh, and a Christmas Tree! (They were excited about that!)
 
We fell a little short on pots and pans (only brought two or three) and beds (we brought one, but she really needed three or four). I also wished we had more for the two teenage girls. If I can get my hands on a clothes dryer or another bed, I plan to make another trip.
 
It was a great experience for all and was an invaluable lesson for my 10 year old son!! A couple of the people who donated items would like to become a sponsor family in the future. I gave them your information and the website address.
 
Thanks again!
