Adopt A Family 2019

CAWC is thrilled to announce the start of our annual Adopt-a-Family program. Help put smiles on the faces of survivors and their children who live in our shelter or who receive services at one of our sites. We also include survivors without children as we want to involve all survivors in this program.

When you adopt a family, this means that you will fulfill three wishes for each family member. We ask that each wish have a $25 minimum value. So, if you adopted a survivor and one child, you would spend a minimum of $75/person or $150 total. You will be given information about the family including wishes, sizes, favorite colors, etc.

Important dates are listed below. If you have questions or are interested in participating in the program, please contact Jennifer Jackson-Outlaw, Assistant Development Director at or 773.489.9081.
