Thank you for helping someone in our community to enjoy a merrier Christmas season! To begin the process of being matched with a Christmas Bureau applicant, please fill out the online adopter form below or download, print and submit the 2017 Adopter Application.
Christmas Bureau intake (where families and individuals apply for adoption) ends November 4, and our goal is to provide your adoptee details before Thanksgiving. Please be patient and know we will send your match information as soon as we can.
Can’t adopt this year? Help us make sure that all applicants are taken care of by sending a donation. Families who aren’t matched will still receive gifts and a meal thanks to your generosity. Donate online here or drop your contribution by the United Way office at 1315 SW Arrowhead Road during normal business hours.
