You will receive information and photos of families that you helped for this holiday season.
Will I know anything about the Caregiver and family that I adopt?
Yes! Once we have paired you with a Caregiver, we will send you information and if possible photos. Following the Holidays, Hearts of Patriots will send a follow up to you including messages and holiday photos of the veteran's family you were paired with.
Can I specifiy the location of the caregiver?
Most Lorain County Sponsors will be paired with a local Veteran family. A large number of caregivers apply from across the US. You can request a Caregiver from your region but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to pair you with a Caregiver in your community.
how are the veteran caregivers SCREENed?
Caregivers are screened for participation in our Adopt a Caregiver for the Holidays program. Proof of service and disability are validated before a caregiver becomes eligible for adoption.
