Share the tradition of GIVING with a refugee family this holiday season!

“Adopt-a-Family” and bring a smile to the faces of your newest neighbors. A wonderful opportunity for individuals, groups, companies, & community organizations to welcome and support refugee families in their pursuit of self-sufficiency.

Refugee needs may include:

How does Adopt-a-Family work?

The International Institute will match you with a family-in-need. We will consider any requirements or interests you may have. Do you want a family with children or prefer an elderly couple? How large of a family can you help?

The Institute will provide you with a family biography and a list of the family’s needs.

Once your gifts are ready, we will schedule an appointment for you to drop off your gifts at the Institute during the work week. The Institute will deliver the gifts on your behalf.

For more info or to adopt a family contact Teresa Nguyen at (314)773-9090, ext. 124 or nguyent@iistl.org
