Adopt-A-Day Program


Individuals, families, businesses, civic organizations, foundations, churches, and others may “adopt” a day (or more) at Bell Family Shelter by donating all or part of one day’s operating costs.

Many groups and individuals choose a day that is important to them, like a birthday or anniversary, or as a tribute to someone special.

Full Adopt-a-Day = $1,350

Half day = $675

One hour = $58

These vital donations assure someone will be there to offer a safe place to sleep, nutritious meals, and crucial, compassionate guidance and care from our trained staff when homeless families arrive on our doorstep.

Adopt-a-Day sponsors are a special part of the Bell family.

Full day sponsors

  • are spotlighted on our web site and social media channels,
  • receive an invitation to an annual AAD breakfast at the Shelter followed by a personal tour, and
  • will receive a pack of note cards featuring hand-drawn artwork from children in residence.

Half-day sponsors are invited to tour the Shelter, and will receive a small piece of hand-drawn artwork.

One hour sponsors receive a personal thank note from a Shelter family.
