AACI Assists: Rebuilding a Home for Refugees
by  AACI
5 days left

After the events in Afghanistan that occurred in the last year, Afghan families are already arriving and resettling in Silicon Valley, seeking safety and a better life for themselves and for their children. Many of these families left their home country with very few possessions of their own, and we are calling in our community to support these families as they rebuild their lives here in Santa Clara County. 

As we have for almost five decades, AACI welcomes these newest members of our diverse community and stands ready to assist them as they adjust to their new lives. AACI’s Center for Survivors of Torture is the only specialized behavioral health program in Santa Clara County to provide services to newly arrived refugees. We hope you will join us in welcoming our newest neighbors and in doing all that we can to assist them during this transition.


Please note that AACI has a new items only policy. Because these families and individuals are currently going through the process of resettling into a new home and many arrived with only a small bag of their personal belongings, we want to ensure that all donations are new and unused to help them rebuild their lives with dignity.

How do I know which families need support or what items I should donate?

  • You can choose an individual or family to "adopt" by selecting a profile below.
  • By clicking on a profile, you can learn more about the individual or family's background and wish list(s).
  • Please note: we ask that you sponsor a family only if you are able to fulfill the entire family's wish list. For larger families that may have larger wish lists, we encourage you to gather your friends and/or family members to collect and donate items together.

Is there a deadline for when I need to donate by?

  • Certain wish lists have a fulfillment deadline. The deadline will be included in the profile description.

If you have any questions regarding your donation, please reach out to the Resource Development team via email (development@aaci.org).

Back to School Campaign
6 days left
VOA's mission is to change lives through a ministry of service. Many students in our community have experienced homelessness or are currently at risk of being homeless. Back to School season poses an additional challenge for struggling parents who cannot afford to provide basic supplies needed to start the school year. With your support, we want to ensure all children have access to school supplies, school uniforms, shoes, and other items needed throughout the school year. A prepared child is a confident child, and thus much more likely to succeed in school. Every child deserves an opportunity for success.

Hello and Merry Christmas! 

It is that time of year once again when we begin to consider "Christmas" and all the blessings of the season!

Thank you for your interest and/or participation in the Glad Tidings Christmas Adopt-a-Family program! For the past 30 years, we have shared the hope of Christ and supported families in need to have the opportunity to be adopted through our Glad Tidings Adopt-a-Family Christmas program. We are so grateful that each year the Lord provides the Sponsors to answer the needs of each Recipient Family.

Glad Tidings Adopt-a-Family is a Christmas Adoption program that allows qualifying recipient family(ies) to be adopted by community Sponsors; children are blessed with gifts and a grocery gift card is provided for the family for Christmas. Qualifying families were vetted and required to submit proper documentation to be considered as a candidate for our program.

🎄How it Works:

A Star of Hope Glad Tidings Adopt-a-Family team member will confirm all Sponsors with the selected Recipient(s) that were chosen by the Sponsor.

  1. a. Registration Required: All interested individuals, organizations, and or companies must register to become a Glad Tidings Sponsor.

  2. b. Complete Adoption: After the Sponsor has selected their family(ies) and the adoption has been confirmed, an email will be sent to the Sponsor providing the family(ies) contact information and a copy of the family’s Christmas Needs List.

  3. c. Meet and Greet:The Sponsor will contact the chosen adopted family(ies) by phone and by email to schedule a mutual meet and greet with the adopted family and a date, time and location to deliver the Christmas gifts. This is also an opportunity to introduce yourself as a Glad Tidings Adopt-a-Family Christmas Sponsor and share a word of encouragement or prayer with the family. 

  4. d. Shop and Deliver: The Sponsor will prepare to shop for the family and confirm the date, time and location to deliver the Christmas gifts. All gifts must be delivered before or by December 8, 2023. Note: A mutual location can be determined to deliver the gifts to the family.  For example, the Sponsor can deliver the gifts to the family's home, or meet at a church, office, or restaurant.  Please be mindful that transportation for some families is limited. 

    • The Sponsor will shop providing some Christmas needs for children and a grocery store gift card for the family.
    • Gift purchase per child, up to $50.00 – $75.00 per child, at least 3 gifts per child. Sponsors are not obligated to purchase big-ticket items. 
    • Christmas gifts may be delivered wrapped or unwrapped.
  5. e. Delivery Confirmation: Once the gifts have been delivered to the Glad Tidings adopted family, please send us an email to confirm your gift delivery atgtsponsors@sohmission.org.

  6. f. Share Your Glad Tidings Experience: We would love to hear about your Christmas Glad Tidings experience. Please send photos and share our story with us!

Once you have reviewed the gallery of Glad Tidings family’s needs list and their stories you may select the family you would like to adopt. Note: A total of (1) family can be adopted at this time. After November 11, 2023, sponsors will have the option to adopt more families.

Thank you for supporting the Star of Hope Mission and thank you for sharing in the Christmas spirit of blessing a family in need. For additional information about the 2023 Glad Tidings Christmas Adopt-a-Family program, email us at gtsponsors@sohmission.org.
