I love Adopt a Family. They are creative in helping families help themselves, they are kind and they are effective. Everyone is passionate about their work in helping families. Their Holiday program where you can adopt a family for Christmas is fun, rewarding and a great way to engage the entire family in helping our neighbors.

I have been so impressed as a donor and a volunteer with the level of professionalism coupled with care and wisdom that I have found at Adopt a Family of Marin. Pam Meyer and her staff give me a very high level of confidence that the money that I donate to the organization is going to be used wisely and make a lasting impact on families lifting them out of poverty and homelessness to self sufficiency.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure more people knew about this program and the work they do.

While the mission of Adopt A Family is vital to prevent homelessness for families in Marin County, as I donor I have the highest respect for Pamela Meyer's ability to stretch every dollar to its limit for this incredible work. The professionalism and compassion of the staff, combined with the "hand-up, not hand-out" philosophy and the follow-up work to help families maintain financial and emotional stability is exemplary and inspiring!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find innovative ways to raise the Adopt A Family profile for potential donors. More funding means more families served.

Adopt A Family provides a compassionate ear and a lifeline to families in times of crisis. They then follow up with each family to provide the tools and the education necessary to create and implement a plan to build a strong future capable of weathering future storms on their own. Many of their clients go on to assist other families in the community and inspire others to build on the success of their program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would expand their capacity to reach, assist and educate more families.
