Sign Up to Adopt a Student Today

In just over a month, it will be the first day of school!  Going back to school is an exciting time for most kids, but for children experiencing homelessness and poverty the first day of school can be difficult.  Instead of excitement, many children experience worry, anxiety and fear.

Would you consider putting a smile on the faces of these students by being an Adopt a Student sponsor?

As an Adopt a Student sponsor:

  • Spend a minimum of $75 on new clothing and shoes to put into a new backpack for each child you adopt
  • We will send you information including the child’s sizes and interests to assist you in shopping

Deliver the items to us — 

Monday, August 7, from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. at the Elkhorn Donation Center, 1620 N. 203rd St, Elkhorn

Tuesday, August 8, from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Open Door Mission Administration Building, 2828 N 23rd St E, Omaha

Would you please consider putting a smile on the faces of these children by being an Adopt a Student sponsor?

Be An Extra Blessing

Unfortunately, due to more than 50% of our children being victims of domestic violence, we can’t allow personal deliveries to our children. 


Thank you for helping children experiencing homelessness feel loved!
