      Adopt a Family

The need for support for individuals and families within Goochland County continues to grow. In 2023, we assisted 220+ families with resources to enable Goochland County residents to receive essential food, clothing, and other necessities.   We are able to offset a portion of this demand by finding adoptive families, such as yourself, to provide  an individual  or family with the same items our program would have provided if they were assisted within. 

How it Works: 

-Each applicant is carefully screened for eligibility within the program

-Approved applicants are matched with their adoptive family, business or organization 

-We will contact you directly to discuss your options for providing assistance to your match. 

We request you deliver your donations directly to your adopted family NO LATER than Saturday, December 7th, 2024. 

                         This date is important as it is when the Christmas Mother Association wraps and delivers our own donations to other families within the program. 

The deadline for adopting a family is Sunday, November 24th, 2023.
