Families Helped This Year

Help A Family In Need Today

For the past 21 years, Neighbors 4 Neighbors has worked to match needy families with caring businesses, organizations and individuals through our Adopt-A-Family 4 The Holidays Program. Last year, Adopt-A-Family 4 The Holidays has connected over 400 families in need with adopters who provide them gifts, decorations, food, and most importantly, friendship. This year we will connect even more.


Unlike many holiday programs, an adopter through our program has the option of meeting the family or remaining anonymous.

Neighbors 4 Neighbors also serves families who are not matched with an adopter through our Operation Elf Toy and Gift Card Drive. Many companies, schools, groups and other organizations have participated in Operation Elf to collect toys and gift cards to help us serve these families.

Our Mission

Neighbors 4 Neighbors connects those in need with those who can help. Using a combination of resource development, collaboration with service providers and the power of media, we empower our neighbors to use the talents, time and money they have to help others.



Other Ways To Help

You can donate to our Operation Elf Toy & Gift Card Drive, benefiting some of the most vulnerable children in South Florida through our partners at the YMCA of Broward County and the YMCA of Greater Miami as well as families who are not adopted.
