MHHF worked with Sacramento Adopt-A-Family to expand our outreach this year. We were able to help two families by providing items from their list during the holiday season.

Tammi and Robert were nominated as sometimes things can get a little hard even if your're both working. MHHF granted a shopping trip for Robert which allowed him to get clothes he usually wouldn't be able to get. Tammi and Robert also received a shopping spree to the grocery store so they could stock up their pantry.
In 2017, we were able to help other families in need. Alyssa which had hours cut but looking for a 2nd job needed some assistance so her utilities didn't get cut off. MHHF was able to step in and help her keep the lights on.
We helped the local community by handing out care packages to the homeless. This year we were able to hand out 50 life bags which included things from blankets, clothing, food items, to other personal products.
We helped three Receiving Homes / Emergency Housing facilities this year which things like Kindle Fires to be used for entertainment, learning, and to log kids in and out of the facility. Stuff bears for another facility allowed something personal to a child without anything on Christmas Day. The 3rd facility was supplied board games, art supplies, slippers, and hoodies so that any child arriving would have warm clothing.
Lastly, at times we have children and families that are in need which we assist whenever possible. However, due to the situation, we are not always able to share there stories to the public.
