Over 150 children received gifts from the community in 2017! Thank you for caring.
Thoughts of the holidays can bring wonderful memories of family, friends and giving. But often many children won’t experience the excitement of receiving gifts during the holidays. Northeast Guidance Center’s Adopt-a-Child program provides someone like YOU an opportunity to bring joy to our neediest children who receive behavioral health services at NEGC and may have serious emotional disturbances or live with a parent who has a mental impairment. We have children waiting for someone like you to make their holiday memorable!
Making Wishes Come True Adopt-a-Child matches individuals, families and organizations with our NEGC children ages newborn to 17 years. We have many children hoping to be adopted by a caring individual or group. Wish list items often include “something you WANT, something you NEED, something to WEAR and something to READ” and a family game. You can make a difference by adopting a child or making a monetary donation (we think $75 is a generous amount). 100% of your donation goes directly to bringing joy to the children we serve.
How It Works • Notify us that you would like to adopt a child (call, email or return the Request Form). Adopt a Child brochure 2018ADOPT-A-CHILD INSTRUCTIONS • Starting November 2nd, you will be contacted with the wish list of the child(ren) you adopt. Then shop, wrap and return the gifts by December 7th! Gift distribution will take place at the Eli Z. Rubin Children’s Wellness Center the following week.
