Each year Family Business expresses our gratitude to service members through our holiday "Adopt-A-Family" program, where we provide clothing, toys, essential items, and financial support families in need.
Meet the 2022 families
This Service Member suffers from PTSD since returning home from deployment. His wife has heart issues and has been hospitalized. She had to quit her job and is now only able to work part time. We are happy to help provide this family and their two children with a memorable holiday.
This Service Member is living paycheck to paycheck while supporting her husband and six children. She hopes to be able to provide her children with the necessities needed to make it through the winter. This service member has graciously allowed a housing-insecure family member and her three young children into her home while she helps her find housing and childcare. We hope to take some of the burdens off of this service member and provide gifts on top of winter clothing and gear for her whole family.
This dedicated mother and service member passed away at the age of 31 this September, leaving behind her husband and two children, ages 7 and 9. The kids are now living split between their father and grandparents. While this family will face many challenges this holiday, we hope to provide some stability to this family by providing the children with everything they need.
Family Business is supporting a National Guard Service member and his family, consisting of his wife and three kids, who are four, eight, and thirteen years old. While his wife is at home watching their baby boy until they can secure a spot in early childhood schooling for him, this service member is struggling to provide for his family with one income. We hope you can join us in helping support this family for the holidays!
This service member is struggling to make ends meet as he supports his six children. He has reenlisted in the military for another 6 years, and was hopeful that his reenlistment bonus would help him catch up on past due bills, provide his family with additional food as food stamps are not covering their needs, and provide his children with gifts this holiday. With his reenlisted bonus getting pushed back each month, we hope to provide this family with the necessities they need this holiday.

How it started
The founders of Family Business began the Adopt-A-Family program 5 years ago with the goal of assisting families in need during the holidays. With the help of our supporters, our program has grown each year, allowing us to assist more families and increase our impact. The funds collected are used to buy each family essential household items such as cleaning supplies and cookware, as well as toys and clothes for the children. We hope that you will join us in this tradition of giving back to those in need.
