Because every child needs a family, and every child deserves a chance to thrive.
Your gift to Children’s Home during our Little Red Stocking campaign helps unite children with loving, nurturing families through adoption. It ensures that people touched by adoption receive ongoing post adoption support throughout their lives. Thanks to your generosity, the Little Red Stocking campaign has been helping children in our community since 1909.
How Your Gift helps children thrive
Your contribution to the Little Red Stocking campaign has a life-changing impact on children and families. Here are just a few examples of how your gift helps Children’s Home address the greatest needs:
$25 helps a child join a family and provides lifelong post adoption support to adoptees and their families.
$50 ensures a parent who calls our Post Adoption Helpline receives the guidance they need to help their child through a difficult time.
$125 trains an adult adoptee volunteer to be a mentor for an adopted child.
$250 sends a child to Adoption Day Camp, where she can make friends who understand exactly what it’s like to be adopted.
$400 facilitates an adoptee’s search for urgent medical background information.
$1,000 connects a teen with a family that will provide a safe and permanent home before he ages out of foster care.
$2,500 provides an adoption grant that helps an older child, a sibling group, or a child with an identified need join a nurturing family.
YOUR GIFT IN ANY AMOUNT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

Kids Give $2 Challenge
The Little Red Stocking campaign began in 1909, when Children’s Home sent red paper stockings to children, asking them to collect coins to help orphans and “put in two cents for each year they are old.”
In 2015 we encourage kids to get involved by raising $2 for each year of age—and ask grown-ups to match their donation to amplify the impact of their Little Red Stocking gift.
