THANK YOU so much for helping survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) and their children receive hope and joy this past holiday season! YOU empowered residents in our Emergency Shelter and other non-resident clients to shop for their children and provide them with the ultimate gift of choice.

Adopt a Family
By donating Target, WalMart, or Visa gift cards, you gave residents and non-resident clients the opportunity to delight in the experience of purchasing and giving presents to their children!

The Power of Your Generosity

As our programs and services keep expanding, so too does the need for help during the holidays. Thanks to your generosity, 735 survivors and their children had gifts during the holidays. That’s 55 more clients served than last year!

Adopt a Family


THANK YOU for ensuring that survivors of IPV and their children had a happier holiday season.

If there are any additional gift cards remaining, they are used to meet client needs throughout the year since survivors and their children often arrive at Emergency Shelter with little to nothing. These gift cards empower them as they start over.

Please call (412) 687-8017 ext. 331 or email Jake Phillips at phillipsj@wcspittsburgh.org with any questions about our Adopt-A-Family Program.
