Adopt-a-Family 2017 Holiday Giving Program

Ended December 02, 2017

Thank you for participating in Adopt A Family this year. Due to the overwhelming number of youth and families submitted to the program this year, we have 136 individuals and families still not adopted. To be sure everyone gets something this holiday season, we are still accepting gift cards. Denominations of $25 or $50, to almost anywhere, are preferred.

For help or more information, contact Heather or Kathryn at


More than 1,600 foster youth and their families are served through our Adopt-a-Family program. Churches, school groups, local businesses, corporations, individuals and families are encouraged to participate.

Bill Wilson Center's annual Adopt-a-Family Program works directly with Santa Clara County Department of Family and Children's Services linking caring donors to local foster youth who would otherwise receive few, if any, gifts for the holidays.
