At Adopt-A-Family we want to promote and support the goals of the Human Services Council, Inc. in alleviating the impact of poverty by providing critical emergency assistance throughout the year to families in areas such as lodging, utility, clothing needs, educational support, and holiday assistance.

During a typical year, the Adopt-A-Family program  provides urgently needed assistance to over 4,500 disadvantaged Delaware families totaling more than 15,000 individuals.  Most of the beneficiaries are single parent households, children and senior citizens.
