HOPE of the Grand Valley began this program in 2009; it has proven to be a much-loved program by families and by those that adopt a family.
Adopt a Family for Christmas continues to grow with community support. In 2009 we launched our program and served 30 families (120 individuals), in 2010 and 2011 more than 300 families were adopted (over 1200 individuals) receiving a full Christmas (including gifts and dinner).
2012 was an amazing year for this program. HOPE of the Grand Valley provided over 3000 gifts to children and parents!
We will begin taking applications from families for 2013 the First of October, 2013!
We thank our partners for this great outreach, with a special thank you to:

In order to not duplicate services, and provide for more families in need, HOPE of the Grand Valley is focusing on our employed working families that are unfortunate or barely surviving. We believe HOPE’s program is the ONLY one for our working poor with children. Due to struggles today, most of them are working two jobs and trying to live paycheck to paycheck, and hence, they do not qualify for much if any government assistance. If anything they may receive a very small amount in food stamps. They are paying their rent, or house payment, insurance, bills. Now this year, THEY have HOPE!!!
"Just wanted to say thank you for all you do! Our gifts were delivered last night and Amy and I had so much in common, she was very down to earth and she was very generous! Can't wait to see the kids faces Christmas morning God Bless you and Merry Christmas!"--mom
"Thank You all so very much!!! My family had been adopted and received so many gifts and food and even diapers. Can't wait till Christmas morning to open all the great gifts.

"We were adopted for the 1st time this CHRISTmas & what a blessing it was. Words can not describe the overwhelming feeling of joy & love that entered through our doors. Thank you Hope of the Grand Valley for this opportunity. Thank you to the business that adopted my family. There was no way we could have done CHRISTmas for our girls without y'all. Seeing the faces of my girls CHRISTmas morning & being able to eat such an amazing meal were Blessings to me & mine. My heart is forever grateful for the love strangers hold for others during the holidays. Thank you. Thank everyone for the heart & time. Thank you. God is Good!!"--mom
