Adopt a Family in Denver During the Holidays

Adopt a family in Denver during the holidays to bring joy to others.The Adopt a Family Program in metro Denver, Colorado benefits single parent families with dependent children 17 years and younger currently receiving treatment in an Arapahoe House outpatient or residential program.  Each family creates a wish list to be fulfilled by donors like you who buy and wrap presents. Together, we can make this holiday special for those who are healing from drug and alcohol addiction. 


We hope that you will join us in healing hearts and spreading the holiday spirit to our clients in 2015. A maximum dollar amount of $50.00 per family member is suggested. 


Interested donors should contact the Arapahoe House development office at


Notes of apprecaition from our families:


“To the dear loving family, friends and individuals who have taken upon themselves to open their hearts to my family at this time. This year has been very trying for us. The children’s lives have been turned upside down and all around due to my issues and their father’s health issues. I truly thank you for your generosity and kindness."


"Dear Generous People,
Thank you so much for your kindness – the toys, clothes, and necessities made this Christmas so much brighter for me and my kids. I wish we could somehow yell you how much it meant to us, but I can’t seem to find the words. We’re working hard to rebuild our lives and it means the world to me that people that don’t even know us would be so kind."


“Dear Real Life Santas,
I wanted to let you know how grateful we are for your unbelievable kindness. The Christmas gifts for me, as well as the new baby were so perfect. I wish we could tell you how happy it made us to open presents with my daughter and watch her joy this Christmas."
