Established in 2003, Adopt a Family Foundation has been committed to offering support to individuals and families in Israel dealing with the after-effects of terrorism. We are reaching out to the community to bring more awareness to the desolating situation in Israel and working to forge a sense of unity between the United States and Israel.
Adopt a Family Foundation matches families through a careful process that allows for the strongest bond between the Israeli victims and their American support. The relationships which are built are long-lasting, real connections with no end point. All of our families benefit from a trip to San Diego to meet their contact, our organization, and the community at large. In addition to supporting our adopted families, Adopt a Family Foundation supports projects for the population suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
