Help Beyond Housing bring holiday joy to families.

Holiday Friends is our annual gift-giving program that aims to brighten the season for 1,000 children by ensuring they wake up to something under the tree. For $100 you can sponsor one child's holiday season!

Sign up to shop for a child

You can fill out a form to buy gifts for a child (or several children) within a family. You will receive an email with details about the child(ren), including their age, clothing and shoe sizes, and a wish list. Please plan to spend a minimum of $100 per child on gifts.

You can also make a donation toward Holiday Friends and our elves will do the shopping for you!

Holiday Friends is an important part of Beyond Housing’s comprehensive approach. After working with a family to budget and create a plan to purchase their first home, we want them to continue a successful path and not feel the pressures of purchasing gifts to throw off their savings plan. By relieving some of those financial stressors, Holiday Friends provides an opportunity for families to stay on track with their financial goals while not sacrificing the joys and memories of the holiday season.

For children, it’s all about the presents, but for their parents and caregivers, it’s about being able to provide those gifts without the stress of added financial burdens when funds are already tight. 

Make a donation and our elves will do all the shopping for you!
