Look through the families’ stories and wish lists, then call 412-353-1173 for Celeste or 412-353-1151 for Michelle to donate an individual item or sponsor an entire family or child. The deadline to bring in donations is 5:00pm on Monday, December 11, 2017.

Gifts must be brought, unwrapped, to:

 Star – Foster Plaza Building #5, Second Floor
651 Holiday Dr.
Pittsburgh, PA 15220

Project STAR at The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh promotes the right of all chil dren to grow in safe, nurturing, lasting families. We do this through family placement services, family preservation services and family enrichment services.
 Programs focused on adoption and foster care help build families while in-home services strengthen families who are at risk.

All of our programs give parents the knowledge, skills, support and hands-on training that they needed to meet their child’s special needs. Many of our Project STAR families are dealing with extremely difficult issues. Homelessness, mental illness, drug and alcohol addiction, medical disabilities, lack of transportation and extreme poverty are not uncommon for the families we serve. While they struggle to provide even the most basic necessities for their families, they also want to make sure their children experience a joyful holiday season.

Dean, who is now 14-years-old, was initially adopted. However, four years ago his adoptive parents split up and his adoptive mother abandoned him.  Dean was living with his adoptive father, however he had no rules, structure or real supervision and he got caught in some minor trouble.  At that point, the adoptive father decided he didn’t really want him back and has made little effort towards Dean since then.  Dean was placed in a youth shelter until his older step-sister and her family took him in.  Since that point he had made significant changes in his life and loves his new family.  His step-sister’s family was already a blended family with 4 children, the foster father is a fireman, and the foster mother also works.  With 5 children to care for, finances are often tight.

This family has had a rough year as Mom had a hard time finding a new job. Now that she has a job, she is still having trouble making ends meet and buying a new car so she can get to work. Mom loves her daughter and loves to spoil her rotten, but hasn’t been able to lately and would love some help to give her daughter a wonderful Christmas. Lisa is a sassy but loving three-year-old who has the wildest imagination. She loves to work on crafts with Mommy and loves learning new things. When she isn’t coloring or trying to read what Mommy is typing over her shoulder, she is playing with a doll and creating funny back stories for her characters. She would love some educational toys and books to make her mind grow.

This family may be small, but their love and dedication makes them strong. This single mother has made extreme strides to overcome obstacles that stood in her way. When everyone told her that her addiction and mental health would prevent her from being a good mother, she realized quickly what she needed to do. Although this mother brought her only daughter home from the hospital to a homeless shelter, she never gave up hope that she would reconnect with her family and regain their support and trust. Her family saw her dedication to her daughter and brought her back into their world. Please help this mother make her daughter’s second Christmas with her family one that they can cherish forever.
