Adopt a Shelter & Family

Overview - During this holiday season, for a third time, we're partnering with our local shelters to be a blessing to the survivors and families.

We are helping a local shelter, centers, and families in the community who are in need of Christmas gifts for teenagers 13-18 years old. These donations will allow the parent to shop safely and securely in the shelter for their "Holiday Boutique" makeover. Through your giving and partnership, we want to show these families that they are not forgotten.


How does this work? 

  • Donated, unwrapped gifts are donated to survivors and their families by DOVES Network.

  • The shelter, center, and school staff transform their space into a boutique to allow the parent survivor to select new gifts for their children safely.

  • Do I have to purchase everything on the wish list? No. You can select the quantities of the selections you choose. 

  • There's an item that says 10 is needed. - Correct because of the number of people in the shelter, center, school more than one quantity is listed. 

  • With the Amazon list, is the address programmed where the donations need to go? Yes! 

  • The address on the Amazon list says it's going to DOVES is that correct? Why not the shelter directly? Because of the sensitivity of domestic violence, we cannot publish center/family information as it's a matter of safety and security. We deliver directly to the agencies.

  • What are the sizes? ​​Sizes have been selected in the Amazon gift list based on the family information provided by our contacts.
