Secret Santa

You can help children in foster care have a joyful Christmas.

At Caritas Family Solutions, we want to be sure that each child in care is able to experience the same traditions many of us have been blessed to have. Beyond helping kids in foster care, Secret Santa donations also support the foster parents who have opened their homes to children in need by helping provide that experience.

Every year, Caritas Family Solutions relies on friends, like you, to help make dreams come true for more than 1,700 children in our care. Gifts for around the tree create lasting memories for these children, and we hope that you can help build those memories.

Making donations to efforts such as our Secret Santa program allows Caritas Family Solutions to continue providing year-round support for all of the programming and services we offer, and strengthens our ability to create loving, stable environments for those in need.
