Support Special Events

Abbott House special events support our vision of building bridges to promising futures.  Our children, adolescents and adults critically depend on our partnership.  Without you and others like you, we simply could not begin to make a meaningful difference in their lives. 

There are a variety of ways to get involved, and we invite you to learn more about our opportunities to partner for social impact here.


Loving Arms Award Dinner

 We wrap our arms around children, families and adults with complex needs to build lasting foundations that hold the promise of a real and thriving future. At this annual gala, Abbott House presents three awards: The Dignity of Family Life Award, the Friend of Abbott House Award and the Dave Wade Heart of Gold Award to individuals and organizations that have consistently demonstrated their unwavering support and advocacy of those we serve.

Abbott House’s annual gift drive helps brighten the holiday for hundreds of children and adolescents in foster care, as well as developmentally disabled adults without families.  New items are collected year-round through corporate and community drives.  Suggested items include gift cards for adolescents, art and crafts supplies and kits, sports equipment, board games, electronics, makeup, jewelry, nail polish, and interactive games. Gifts are distributed in late December.
