Over 4000 Families helped since 1991 in the Greater New Orleans area
A Non-Profit Organization
Adopt-A-Family is a great way of helping families starting over in a new home
by collecting basic household items.
HOW TO HELP A FAMILY STARTING OVER
Adopt-A-Family helps homeless families starting over with household items.
Adopt-A-Family matches homeless families starting over by matching them with helping families that raise basic household items. No money is involved! The program requires the family or group giving assistance to network with family and friends to raise usable second hand household items for the family in need.
School Uniform Drive
At the start of each school season many students in the New Orleans area go to school without a proper school uniform, no uniform at all, or choose not no attend school because their family cannot afford school uniforms. Students who cannot meet uniform requirements suffer a discomfort because they stand out in a wrong way.
Since 1997 when schools started requiring uniforms we have raised $50 donations to help one student purchase (2) school uniforms. To prove what your donation was used for, we send you back the "actual receipt" and "thank you" note from the student we assigned to your donation. We have raised over $1M in the past 28 years and have spent 100% of the donations on school uniforms.
Students who need help are selected by school social workers and the funds are controlled by each school who request help.

The funds raised are administered by a local law firm and to prove all funds were spent in accordance with our charter, we have the overall program audited.
SCHOOL REQUEST FORM: Schools ONLY
The 2020 School Uniform drive helped over 1008 needy students purchase new school uniforms. As promised, every penny raised was spent on school uniforms. We raised $48,405 in donations and purchase $50,430 in school uniforms. The program was Audited by the Law Firm of Cabibi and Cabibi.
To donate for the 2021 school uniform drive send your donation to Adopt-A-Family, 3445 N Causeway Blvd, Suite 300 Metairie, LA 70002
$50 will buy a student 1 or 2 new school uniforms.
We help students only the the Greater New Orleans Area.
