Household information to be sent via:

Adopting Involves contacting adoptee, shopping, wrapping gifts, and delivering to their home.
When adopting please keep in kind that households are often diverse. Sometimes the people living under the same roof are not related, they live together to save on expenses, and in some cases not everyone living in the house is part of the household you have adopted. Households can come in different types and sizes, and volunteers will do their best to match you with the one that meets your request.

View attached cost table to determine the amount to spend per household according to its size.
