This Holiday Season, we're rallying our community around the needs of local kids and families! Join us in supporting vulnerable youth, children and teens in foster care, single parents and foster families around the Greater Sacramento Area. There is something each of us can do to MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the life of a child this year!
A gift. A warm holiday meal. A brightly lit tree and a childhood memory. Christmas baskets filled with sweet treats. The encouragement that comes from receiving a tray of cookies or a gift card. However you choose to bring joy to a local child, caregiver or family this holiday season, it will make a difference.
HOLIDAY CHEER FOR SOCIAL WORKERS
Encourage social workers in our region who work tirelessly to support local foster & vulnerable youth by providing a $10 coffee gift card or platter of Holiday cookies!
DONATE TO THE CHRISTMAS
Do you prefer giving rather than shopping? We've got you covered. Simply donate to our Christmas Gift Fund, which will help cover the needs of local vulnerable kids/families!
SPONSOR A COTTAGE FOR CHRISTMAS
Sponsor a Christmas tree, gift bag and/or home starter kit for the women and children living in cottages at Acres of Hope.
BASKETS FOR CAREGIVERS
Encourage a local foster parent or caregiver by putting together a themed Holiday gift basket. This is a great way to support those caring for kids on a daily basis.
CHRISTMAS GIFT CARDS FOR AT-RISK YOUTH
Gift cards are one of the most popular holiday requests of local foster youth, especially teens. Help answer a holiday wish by participating in our holiday gift card drive.
The Holidays aren't the only times that needs arise. Help local children & families in their times of crisis and with emotional needs by providing for the essentials in life - supplies, hope and the chance to make good memories.
Help us stock our emergency storage locker with essential supplies so that we can help kids & families in crisis mode, from emergency foster care placements, to aged-out youth and vulnerable families.
FUNDING FOR COUNSELING SERVICES
High quality, trauma-informed counselors are hard to come by and for foster/adoptive families this expense is often not covered. Join us in raising $10,000 to provide 6 sessions of trauma counseling to 15 local families caring for at-risk youth.
ACTIVITY GIFT CARDS
Provide FUN memories for a teen in foster care by giving an activity gift card redeemable at local entertainment venues or restaurants. This also gives social workers & mentors a point of connection.
GAS & GROCERY
A grocery or gas gift card can prevent a crisis for a single parent, aged-out foster youth or family in need. Providing these basic items is a great way for the community to show support.
Be a champion for the local nonprofits making a difference for kids and families on a daily basis. Here are some great opportunities to support our nonprofit partners through volunteering, giving or shopping!
The Alliance partners with amazing nonprofits around the Greater Sacramento Area that serve vulnerable kids and families. They would LOVE a helping hand!
MAKE A DONATION
Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to support local nonprofits making a difference in our community. Consider supporting The Alliance or one of our many Alliance Members.
SHOP & SUPPORT
Deer Creek Farm, a boutique gift shop by Compassion Planet has vintage finds, inspirational gifts, and unique treasures. Shop for Christmas gifts and support local youth!
Every child is just one healthy adult away from being a success story.
Could you step up and become a mentor or advocate for a local child, teen or young adult?
Do you have a heart for kids and an open bed in your house? Consider providing a temporary or forever family for a child or teen that needs a safe place to call home.

CONNECT WITH A TRUSTED AGENCY
Foster care and adoption agencies are there to provide expert advice and support for all families willing to welcome children into their home and we partner with some of the best!
