Holiday Program

Each year, activities and events are held to bring warmth and joy to families in need during the holiday season.

Holiday Celebration – invites members of the Arbor Hill and Sheridan Hollow community to enjoy a warm meal, music, raffles and holiday cheer at our Sheridan Hollow Drop-In Center.

Adopt-A-Family Program – enables low-income families to provide gifts for their children during the holiday season.
During November and December, 112 meals were donated, groups dropped off donation drives almost daily, and holiday gifts and activities lifted the spirits of shelter guests and tenants.

  • Everyone in the Housing Program received a holiday dinner.
  • Holiday meals were prepared with love for all Emergency Shelter guests in Albany and Amsterdam.
  • 80 guests attended our annual Holiday Celebration at the Drop-In Center
  • 31 families were adopted for the holidays including 3 families in Amsterdam

  • 40 Safe Haven guests received gifts Christmas morning
  • All individuals in the Housing Program and Emergency Shelter received holiday gifts

There are so many ways that you can help us help others.
