Who We Are

At Adopt-A-Family, our mission is to strengthen families with children in their efforts to achieve stability and self-sufficiency by providing access to all-encompassing services. Since 1983, Adopt-A-Family has grown into the largest service provider for homeless and low-income households in Palm Beach County — providing access to services to over 56,000 local families.

Adopt-A-Family’s organization goals include:

  • preventing or ending episodes of family homelessness;
  • ensuring families have a safe, stable home they can afford;
  • guiding families toward self-sufficiency;
  • facilitating wraparound services, through staff and community partners; and
  • helping children overcome the social, emotional, and academic setbacks that accompany homelessness and poverty.

All Adopt-A-Family programs provide extensive support services that includes case management, budgeting assistance, mental health counseling, job coaching, and referrals to resources provided by collaborative partners.
