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 brings the hope and the spirit of the holidays to single-parent families in Arapahoe House programs.


Our clients often times are unable to buy winter jackets, new shoes and educational toys for their children.  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.


“Holidays are often difficult time for many people, but people in recovery from addiction face even more difficult challenges during this time of year,” said Arapahoe House CEO, Art Schut.  “The children suffer with their parents.  Adopt-a-Family was created to allow parents in drug and alcohol treatment to bring holiday gifts and cheer to their children, who, for economic reasons, may otherwise have none.”


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 tell 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.  God Bless You!
