Adopt a Unit

We need your help to make our Families Feel At Home!

The Adopt-A-Unit Program allows you to help our families directly by providing them with the essential items to furnish their temporary homes at Upward Bound House. By adopting a family’s unit, you make them feel at home and give them a sense a security as they focus on rebuilding their lives, increasing their savings and working towards finding permanent housing. Our families get to take these furnishings with them once they move into their own homes.

How You Can Help

  • Hold a fundraiser or a drive among a group (neighborhood, work, school, church, etc.) to collect the funds or supplies needed to furnish the unit/s.
  • Purchase the items yourself and come decorate a family’s unit when the need arises.
  • Donate to the Adopt-A-Unit Program, and we’ll take care of our families’ needs on your behalf.
