Adopt-A-Room Program

Adopt-A-Room Program

Help us make our Emergency Shelter a warmer and more comfortable setting for women and children seeking safety.

Types of Adoptions:

Safe Haven Adoption (Option 1)

The Safe Haven Adoption is a financial sponsorship of a room makeover project. Sponsorships vary based on the size of the room. A perk of Option 1 is the YWCA Staff handle all the details of the project on behalf of the donor, like purchasing wishlist items and having the room painted.

Cherished Adoption (Option 2)

The Cherished Adoption is a hands-on project for donors, who wish to be a part of the process from start to finish. The donor will purchase the wishlist items, like room décor, paint, etc. Donors have the option of hiring a painter or doing the painting project yourselves. After the room is painted, donors put the finishing touches on the project by decorating and adding the wishlist items.

In recognition of each adoption:

YWCA Union County will place a plaque engraved with the donor’s name on the door of the adopted room. The plaque will have the year of the original adoption project to mark the anniversary of the donor joining the program. Each adopter will be sent before and after photos of the project.
