Help make the holidays more joyful this year by adopting a family through MOMS Orange County!

Adopt-a-Family Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


What is it? Adopt-a-Family is MOMS Orange County’s annual holiday giving event to benefit our clients and their families.

How are recipients chosen? MOMS Orange County serves nearly 3,500 families each year.  Through our home visitation program, MOMS Orange County Maternal Child Health Coordinators are able to identify and nominate those clients most in need.

How much does participating in Adopt-a-Family cost? MOMS Orange County does not set a “giving level” for donors/sponsors.  Donors participate at a level with which they are comfortable.  Our Maternal Child Health Coordinators create wish-lists with our clients to help serve as a guide for their basic needs.

Why is this program important? This annual event provides an opportunity for supporters and friends of MOMS Orange County to remember those who are less fortunate during the holidays and provides individual and organizational volunteers the opportunity to engage with us to impact the lives of families in our community.

How can I help? MOMS Orange County will match you or your organization with a client family and provide you with their wish-list and all the information you need for delivery.

Once your holiday gifts have been delivered to MOMS Orange County, the clients are contacted and informed that gifts have been delivered for them and their family. They make an appointment to pick up their gifts and we do our best to capture photos of our clients with their gifts so that we can share the photos with our donors.
