Adopt a Family

imagesCAWHSHE4With the help of the community, CALM provided hundreds of children gifts, food and decorations during the 2013 holiday season through our Adopt-a-Family program. Many gave us toys, books and other gifts, but we also were able to provide essentials like blankets, coats and other wish-list items for families who are struggling to simply get by.

With the holidays just around the corner, CALM’s Adopt-a-Family initiative is gearing up for this year’s holiday season with the goal of serving 250 families. These families have sought help from CALM and are currently receiving counseling services. CALM will find a family to match your interests and will provide you with sizes and a wish list. Through your help, the children and families we serve will feel the sense of belonging and care of our unique community. You can buy a specially selected present for your assigned family member or leave the shopping to us. Any contribution would be warmly welcomed.

This is a wonderful way to involve your family in the spirit of giving, or join up with a group of friends or co-workers to give together!

Special thanks to the businesses and groups that supported the Adopt-a-Family program in 2013!

Adopt a Room

CALM’s therapy rooms are used by hundreds of children each year.  A place to heal and grow, the rooms are filled with games, books, and therapeutic toys.  Over the years, the games lose their pieces, the book spines crack and the toys break.  Eight therapy rooms are looking for a little love, and a fresh set of supplies.

How you can help

1. Donate an item for a therapy room
2. Adopt an entire room (full set of games, books, and toys)
3. Donate funds towards refurbishing a therapy room

For printable information on adopting a room, please click here.

Use our CALM Amazon store to shop the Adopt a Room wish list!
