Adopt-A-Family Program!


Bring joy to someone’s life this holiday season and become a sponsor for the Department of Public and Social Services (DPSS) Adopt-A-Family program. Each year, this long-standing tradition brings smiles to hundreds of families served by DPSS. In 2018, over 1,000 generous sponsors, provided gifts to 1,500 CalWORKs families during the holiday season.

Los Angeles County staff, individuals, groups, and local businesses can all participate in this joyous and gratifying event by sponsoring families. Sponsors are provided with the “adoptee’s” contact information along with their “wish list” of requested items. These items may include; groceries, clothing, gift certificates or toys. Join together with family and friends to make a difference and experience the true spirit of the holiday season.
