Comfort & Joy 2020

Offer hope to a family in need this Christmas!

What is often a tenuous existence for those living in poverty became nearly unbearable in 2020. Needs for basic essentials like food and rental assistance increased five times over last year. Hope for San Diego’s affiliates are a lifeline to families living on the margins, and each year they select those in most acute need to receive family sponsorships. You can offer these struggling families “tidings of comfort and joy” this season as a reminder that they are loved, valued, and that there is hope for a better future. You’re needed more than ever before.
