Empowering homeless women and their children to achieve permanent, independent living.


Lake County Haven Friend

Overwhelmed by the problems of the world? Poverty, hunger, homelessness, violence, it can be too much to think about. But there is a new opportunity for you to solve a piece of the puzzle. Lake County Haven invites you to Adopt-a-Night! Every night of the year, women and children who have nowhere else to go come to the Lake County Haven seeking food, warmth, safety, and guidance. Now you have the power to provide that for them.

By adopting a night you will provide sanctuary and sustenance for a local family. Our goal is to find a sponsor for each night of the year.

Adopt a Night

By adding your name to Lake County Haven’s Adopt-a-Night calendar, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are giving life-saving and life-changing services to some of our most vulnerable community members. You can adopt as many nights as you like and in any combination you wish. Adopt your favorite holiday, your birthday, or your anniversary. Adopting a loved one’s birthday or anniversary is a thoughtful gift to offer them!

  The cost to Adopt-a-Night is $250.

We know that your desire to take part in this initiative stems from wanting to save lives and change lives. But the Adopt-a-Night program is designed to do even more with your donation. Unless you tell us otherwise, your gift will be communicated to other potential adopters. By doing this, your donation will serve as a model of compassion and community involvement. Thus, your gift will encourage others to give. And that is how we can change the world!

Adopt-a-Night at women's shelter

Your gift will be highlighted in the following ways:

  • Your name will be prominently displayed at the shelter as the patron of that night.
  • Your donation will be profiled on our website. If you give us a link to your business, personal, or club website, we will also display that link.
  • Your gift will be highlighted on our social media pages. Please “like” us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so that others can see your commitment to the community.
  • You will get an acknowledgement letter suitable for framing. Please hang it at your workplace to encourage others to become adopters.

You can also choose to adopt in honor or in memory of a loved one. And if you wish, all forms of celebration of your gift will reference that person’s name. We will also be happy to send birthday or anniversary cards to specific people and let them know the tremendous gift that was made in their honor.

We sincerely hope that you will participate in this new program and adopt a night, or two, or three! Please click on the button below and you will be directed to our secure giving page. On behalf of the many women and children whose lives will be saved and changed through your generous gift: Thank You! ♥

Notes on the AAN Program: Adoption of nights at LCH is a financial support program. Your donation is available for immediate use to cover general operations. Choosing a specific night to adopt does not imply that we are holding those funds until that date. Adopting a night is the sponsorship of a typical cost of services at the shelter for any given 24-hour period.
