Thank you for your generous support in 2022.

 Adopting a St. Paul’s Center family for this holiday season means giving a mother the comfort of knowing her children will have a holiday to remember despite their hardships over the past year. 

If you wish to adopt a family please click on ” Sign up to Adopt-a-Family”. Please complete the form on the reverse side. 

The Adopt-a-Family form can be mailed to PO Box 589 Rensselaer NY 12144
Attention: Housing Stability Advocate or the form can be emailed to [email protected]

After you have decided to adopt a family, St. Paul’s Center will match your organization with a family of the size you have requested. A holiday wish list that the family has completed will be sent to you early in the season to allow plenty of time to shop. The list will include clothing sizes and three items each family member would like.

The total for each family member will be approximately $125; $50 for an outfit and three items at $25 each. You can bring the items WRAPPED and LABELED to St. Paul’s Center, where they will be delivered for the holidays.

 If you have any questions about adopting a family please call Jason Chaplin, Housing Stability Advocate, at 518-434-2910.

 If you would like to support the families by donating money to the Adopt-a-Family fund you can click on “Donate to our Adopt-a-Family Program”. 

A total of 62 families were adopted in 2022, with the generosity of individuals and organizations in the Capital District.
