Just like all kids, the children of our PSS parents want to participate in summer activities when school is out, such as swimming lessons or sports camps.  Our PSS clients are single moms and single dads who are also enrolled in college, so it’s hard for them to afford summer activities for their children.  Your support makes all the difference!  For Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), please read below or contact us at pss.aaf@pssoc.org or (949) 478-1914 


After you donate toward a child’s activity, we will email you the name, age, and a photo of the child whose activity you helped support!  Please allow 1-2 days to receive your match. 

FAQ


What is Summer Adopt-a-Family?

This is a seasonal program where community donors help the children of our Project Self-Sufficiency clients.  Your donation helps pay for the child’s summer activity.


How do I sign up?

You can select a summer activity to support by browsing the drop-down menu on this page.


When is the deadline to participate?

We don’t have an official deadline. The children are eager to start their summer activities, so we recommend donating as soon as you are able.


Can I also donate supplies for the summer activity?

Yes, this is an option. Contact us directly if you would like to purchase supplies or equipment for the child you helped, such as a soccer ball or water shoes. Email pss.aaf@pssoc.org or call (949) 478-1914


Who benefits from my donation?

You will be matched with a child whose parent is in the Project Self-Sufficiency program. Each family is composed of a single parent and at least one child. Our clients are all low-income, single parents who are enrolled in college pursuing higher education in the Orange County area.


Can I meet the family I helped?

For confidentiality purposes, PSS families do not usually have direct contact with donors. We appreciate your understanding. You will receive a thank you card in the mail from the family you help, which we forward from the family.  Your information is kept confidential.


I can’t do Summer Adopt-a-Family this year. What are other ways I can help?

Please contact us at pss.aaf@pssoc.org or (949) 478-1914 for other ways to get involved with PSS. General donations of any amount are always welcome and 100% of the donation goes towards funding our programs and services. You can make a monetary donation via our website here, or mail a check to Project Self-Sufficiency, 307 Placentia Ave, Suite 203, Newport Beach, CA 92663.
