Chosen Families

The founders of Vistas for Children began this benevolent tradition of Chosen Families.

Each year, we “adopt” very special families that are referred to us by the organizations we serve. We support our chosen families by providing them with the items they need, but are unable to attain, to support a healthy lifestyle. These items and services include, but are not limited to, groceries, medicine, basic sundries, clothing and other life essentials. We help the children in our adopted families celebrate special occasions and holidays with age-appropriate gifts. This hands-on project allows Vistas members to supply the items, wrap and decorate any special occasion gifts, and personally deliver them to our special families.


“There are many organizations dedicated to community service in our neighborhood.  All are dedicated to serving the underprivileged or those who are ill or victims of violence or misfortune.  Vistas for Children is 100% devoted to enriching the lives of our future:  Children-which sparked my interest. While I joined Vistas because I wanted to help those less fortunate, ironically it seems that at times I receive more than what I give.  I especially love the monthly messages directly from our philanthropy recipients….it is a powerful reminder how very fortunate we are. The silver lining: working with women who are truly dedicated to the cause, without the drama. Love my Vistas sisters.”
