The Adopta Program has been developed due to demand for support from different ministries, churches, and agencies. One request in particular came from the City of Tucson Housing Department asking for pastors to accompany case managers while doing outreach to homeless individuals in order to build trust and offer spiritual support. Over the past few months, different types of requests have asked specifically for the Christian community to assist. What an amazing opportunity to share God’s love!

Recognizing the challenges that can occur in running a food pantry or storage for other items, we decided to develop a program that we hope will bridge the gap and streamline the process. There are a lot of individuals and churches who would be happy to help when needs arise but running a ministry out of the church can be cumbersome. That is where the idea of the Adopta Program comes in. It is similar to Careportal, except it serves anyone in need, and the types of services also vary widely.

It’s simple. The program connects requests from agencies or ministries with those interested in fulfilling the requests. We’ve broken down the needs into bite-size pieces so everyone can support our neighbors in need.

Below are the different Adopta Opportunities:

  • Adopta Snack Pack – Purchase and assemble snack items used for outreach
