Adopt a Family Program


The Adopt a Family for Christmas program helps families from the six counties in the Archdiocese of Detroit who are having financial difficulty. You can alleviate some of their burden this Advent season by making a donation to help them pay for basic necessities such as food, rent, utilities and medical care. The families listed are identified by number to maintain confidentiality. When donating, you can request your gift go to an individual family, identified by their number, or be divided between all the needy families.
