Adopt-a-Family - The Sobrito Family

THANK YOU!!! To everyone that has contributed to this cause in the past and to those of you joining us for the first time this year.

The formal invitation to participate in this years Adopt-a-Family event,  from the wonderful folks at The Midnight Mission has been accepted. 
I'm expecting to receive additional information about the specific family that will be assigned to us in the next few days. 

I wanted to get the fundraising started a little sooner than previous years so that we can the ball rolling sooner than later.  This will be the 5th year that SoCalGas employees and friends/family have participated in this amazing opportunity.  The Home-Light Family Living is a program of The Midnight Mission.

The Home-Light Family Living program info:

With a strong emphasis on achieving self-sufficiency through accountability, our families are given the opportunity to live in a clean, safe, learning environment where they can create a new life for themselves and their children.
 
Because of the substantial increase in homeless families, The Midnight Mission established its Family Living program in 1994.  Located in a safe residential area in Los Angeles, The Home-Light Family Living Program consists of 11 renovated, fully furnished apartments.  Thanks to our generous supporters, Home-Light provides more than just a safe residence for families shattered by abuse, addiction, poverty and hopelessness.  It provides a comprehensive path to becoming healthy, happy and self-sufficient.  Victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, and those dealing with issues of sobriety and other unthinkable circumstances can find solace in knowing that Home-Light is a safe place where families can recuperate and be restored to a self-sufficient life.  Families who are accepted into Home-Light typically live with us for one year, providing time to stabilize and plan, moving forward in a structured environment.  Family members receive individualized plans for their transition to independent living, which include mental health therapy, job preparedness and family reunification.

SoCalGas has been invited to participate in the Home-Light Adopt-a-Family program this year.  SoCalGas will be adopting a family (tbd) as we have done for the last 5 years.

As part of our ongoing volunteerism at The Midnight Mission, I wanted to invite all of you to an opportunity to participate in this event.  We are trying to raise $2,500, so that we can get this family everything on their wish list this Christmas.  

Thank you for your consideration!

Marco Tachiquin, SoCalGas.
