Adopt a Kindness Family

Congregation Beth El is "adopting a family" in collaboration with Kindness Initiative (KI). KI believes no Jewish household in San Diego County should face life’s challenges alone. Through wrap-around services, the KI team seeks to alleviate the pressures and complexity of financial insecurity, by assisting Members to access the resources they need to achieve self sufficiency.

By adopting a family, we will make a substantial difference in the life of a specific, local Jewish household. KI families struggle with impossible financial choices: paying for food or medicine; rent or utilities, transportation or child care. For KI Members who have lost jobs, become ill, face mounting financial challenges, or are on the brink of homelessness,  the "Adopt a Kindness Family" program helps prevent displacement, and the downward spiral of ever more difficult circumstances.

We have made a one year commitment to contributing $360 monthly to our adopted KI family, as well as help them with other needs throughout the year. You can help by donating funds here, or by helping fill some of the family's needs here. We have adopted a single mother and her 4 children, details remain confidential. 

If you have any questions, please contact Dvora Vinick.
