The Office of Children & Youth in Transition (CYT) has coordinated the yearly Adopt a Family program for the most at-risk families in San Diego Unified School District. Our office supports families in transition that are homeless, foster or from military families. Because of the Adopt a Family program, we are able to bring the holidays to some students that would otherwise be unable to celebrate the holidays. In the past years, due to generous donations from the community, our office has adopted as many as 51 families for the holidays!
Not able to commit to adopting an entire family? No problem! CYT gladly accepts gift cards and monetary donations which may be tax deductible (contact your tax expert).
If you or your organization would like to participate in this wonderful event that brings a glimmer of hope and happiness to families in need, please contact Kristie Calton, School Psychologist for CYT at (619) 725-8159 or firstname.lastname@example.org
