We've opened adoptions for the 2021 Holiday Season! Click "Register to Adopt" above to get started.

About our Program
For 29 years, Neighbors 4 Neighbors has connected those in need with those who can help, not just during the holidays, but all year long. This support extends all over South Florida (Miami-Dade, Broward, and Monroe Counties). Your support has been critical to our success.
Because of you, last year’s Adopt A Family 4 the Holidays Program served thousands of members of our community, a total of $452,427 was raised in goods and services to help families in need.
Neighbors 4 Neighbors works with our non-profit partners to screen the families included in our program. Families are submitted by the social workers from each agency. Together we and our over 30 local non-profit community-based organizations hope to give these families the holiday they deserve.
What it Means to Adopt
As a registered adopter you can browse family profiles and select a family based on location, non-profit provider, or number of family members. Best of all, you get to meet the family you are helping and help share the joy of the Holidays…socially distant of course. Click the button below to register now.
Adopting During a Pandemic
Most of our “Adopters” choose to meet their adopted family. However, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we ask that you respect the comfort level of your adopted family and take reasonable precautions to meet if you choose to do so. The only thing we want to spread this year is holiday cheer.
Other Ways to Give
Operation Elf Gift Card Drive
We understand that adopting a family one-on-one isn’t for everyone. Donations of gift cards can also help us serve large families and those who are not able to have a one-on-one experience. Through our Operation Elf Gift Card Program, we are able to provide a Publix gift card for each family member, as well as a gift card to a retailer, like Wal-Mart or Target for each child under 18.
Although human kindness is our greatest asset, we depend on monetary donations to purchase gift cards and sometimes provide emergency assistance. Your financial contribution, in any amount, enables us to continue providing hope and a hand up to those in need this holiday season. Donate on our secure donation platform by clicking the button below or scrolling to the bottom of this page.
Last year we collected over $40,000 in new toys and bikes for tons of great kids. Our partners and delivered to our non-profit partners who were able to distribute them just in time for the holidays.
Neighbors 4 Neighbors is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and your contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law. You may make a secure credit card donation on the form below.
