Compass’ Adopt-a-Family project pairs individuals or groups from the community with needy families who lack the resources to buy holiday gifts. For many of these families, these gifts are the only ones they will receive this holiday season.
Last year, Adopt-a-Family reached more than 385 families. Let’s continue to spread the holiday joy this season!
Compass Family Services helps families break the cycle of poverty and homelesness through targeted interventions and an array of support services. Compass offers a continuum of care designed to help clients find stable housing, secure employment, and raise healthy children. Our seven programs reach more than 3,000 parents and children each year.
All purchases are tax deductible. You will receive a thank you letter the second or third week of January describing your participation in the program. Keep your receipts so you can attach those to the letter for tax purposes. Our tax ID # is 94-1156622.
It's not easy to be homeless at any time of the year, but it is particularly hard during the holidays. Helping our client families celebrate special occasions is an important way to help them maintain hope and connect as a family.
One of our largest events is our annual holiday party held in Golden Gate Park that is attended by more than 400 parents and children! This event is made possible largely by the generosity of local businesses, schools and individuals.
