What We Do

Shemerria_client_story

With more than three decades of experience providing services to the community’s most vulnerable families, we  see firsthand how housing coupled with supportive services makes a difference. 

Adopt-A-Family provides a continuum of housing and supportive services to meet the diverse needs of our clients. Some of the agency’s housing units are restricted to families who are literally homeless, while other programs target low-income working households interested in becoming homeowners. The agency also operates the largest non-governmental homeless prevention program in Palm Beach County which provides financial assistance and supportive services to families at risk of becoming homeless.

In addition to the agency’s activities surrounding housing and supportive services, Adopt-A-Family operates a licensed afterschool and out-of-school program for children attending kindergarten through fifth grade. The program is located within walking distance of many of the agency’s core housing programs and offers priority placement to homeless and formerly homeless children. The program, Project Grow, is one of the highest performing programs under Palm Beach County’s Quality Improvement System (QIS) standards.

In all, Adopt-A-Family programming works collectively to address issues pertaining to family homelessness through holistic service delivery and aims to achieve the two core goals of our mission statement; stability and self-sufficiency for the families we serve.
