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 a day’s operating costs – $1,350.

Many groups and individuals choose a day that is important to them, like a birthday or anniversary, or as a tribute to someone special. Getting together with friends and family to adopt a day, or scheduling monthly gifts, helps spread out the cost.

To set up your Adopt-a-Day gift, and/or a fundraising page to rally support from your family and friends, please reach out to Averie Clark at
