Our vision for our Kinship Care Families is to maintain a strong sense of identity and pride in culture, heritage, and family connection.  These heroic caregivers are grandparents raising their grandchildren; sisters raising their brothers; aunts raising their nieces and nephews…all standing in the gap and helping their family thrive. Help us honor these families during the Holiday Season by sponsoring the whole family. Suggested donation amount PER family member is $75. Fill out the form below and our Program Manager will connect with you in 24-48 business hours. *This is our most popular opportunity and families will be matched with sponsors on a first come, first serve basis. If you have any questions, please contact Jessi West at JWest@villages.org or 317-775-6500.

Looking for a way to give back and involve your co-workers in giving to deserving children and families this Holiday Season? Share our Amazon Holiday Wish List with your friends, family, faith community or create your own Virtual New Toy Drive. These donated gifts will help The Villages provide new toys to children who enter foster care right before or during the Holidays, birthdays now and throughout the year, and to help us ensure every child has a gift this Holiday Season.

Click The Villages Amazon Wish List to shop for toys and get ideas of what the children are wishing for. Make sure you are on your computer when viewing these lists. On the left hand side of the webpage you will see all of The Villages Kids Wishes, listed by age and gender.
