Holiday Gift Program

Are you interested in adopting one of our families for the holidays? 

C4DP has 21 families in our Second Step program and we will provide you with their wish lists for the holiday donation program. Second Step is a long-term, transitional living facility for women and their children who have experienced domestic violence. It provides these women with time to rebuild their lives and get support to obtain resources to achieve economic independence. Services include weekly practical and emotional support groups to help women remain free from abuse and establish independent lives. Family advocates provide crisis intervention and referrals to numerous social, legal, and medical agencies. Family advocates also work with residents to develop and implement a self-sufficiency plan for economic independence.

Your commitment to this gift program ensures a brighter and more joyful holiday for these mothers and children. Though these families have been uprooted from their homes in order to escape domestic violence, they will be uplifted by the knowledge that people in their community—people who have never even met them—care very much about their well-being and happiness. 

If you are interested in adopting a family for the holidays, please call 415-457-2464.


We also have families in our emergency shelter who are also accepting donations. Gift cards for food, gas, clothing, and entertainment are greatly appreciated.
