Adopt-A- Family is coordinated by the DHSS, Division of State Service Centers, under leadership of the Human Services Council, Inc., a 501c3 advisory board. This relationship allows for a public-private partnership that works to support families throughout the year. Adopt-A- Family is completely funded by individuals, community agencies, churches, and corporations with administrative support from DHSS/DSSC. Therefore, all donations are managed by the Human Services Council, Inc. and 100% of all donations are used to provide direct support to needy families.

Items needed for the Adopt-A-Mom Program

Through the year-long Adopt-A-Mom program, we have the ability to assist mothers and families who may not have the ability to provide all of their children's needs. For this program, we provide mothers and families with everything from clothing to strollers. Adopt-A-Mom serves New Castle, Kent, and Sussex counties. Products that are donated will support care for children up to 24 months.
