Support our Families – Give Today


My baby was born with an inverted heart.

I was already behind on rent, and now, baby Terrance was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Miami Children’s Hospital. Terrance underwent a complex surgery to flip his heart right-side up so it could begin pumping properly. My landlord threatened several times to evict me and my family – though I pleaded with him that I could get back on my feet. It was nearly impossible; three times a week I drove to Miami to be with my baby and still tried to pick-up hours at work.


I reached out to Adopt-A-Family – a decision that would change my life forever.

The team at Adopt-A-Family paid my past-due rent and worked with my landlord to stop the eviction proceedings. The love and support I received from their staff and team will never be forgotten. They became family.  Today, baby Terrance is happy and healthy. I’m back to work full-time and continue to benefit from the knowledge and resources I gained from Adopt-A-Family.

Now, we need your heart.
