This time of year, it is our job to maintain the illusion that Santa does not forget anyone here at Safe Places–and we need your help!

For the last several weeks we’ve have been working with families to help them fill out their wish lists. These lists are filled with the needs and wishes for themselves and their families. Out of the roughly one hundred individuals that we are currently serving, we have 17 who still need to be adopted this holiday season. You see, we make sure every child & mom receives a holiday gift. That they receive something that lets them know that someone out there cares and wants them to be happy.

So how can you be Santa this year? 11 kids and 6 moms still need to be adopted this holiday season. Adopting is easy and fun!

  • Email me your preferences: do you want to sponsor a family of 5 or of 2, a child or a mom; do you really want to shop for a girl because you had sons, or a toddler because your kids are grown?
  • Receive a wish list: After that, I’ll sort through our wish lists and send you one to use as inspiration or a step by step shopping list!
  • SHOP! If you are in Northern Virginia let me know when you are ready to have your gifts picked up. If you are shopping from afar feel free to order online and get items shipped directly to our office! All gifts are due unwrapped by Monday, December 17.


And, if you would rather us shop for you, you can give directly here. Can you please help us make sure that Santa visits everyone this year?
