If you or your organization is interested in “Adopting A Family” this holiday season, contact Odyssey House by emailing [email protected] or call 780-538-1332 ext. 101.

For anyone planning on sponsoring a family; caregivers do enjoy wrapping their children’s gifts, so Odyssey House asks to provide the wrapping supplies and leave the gifts unwrapped. However, sponsors are invited to wrap the caregiver’s present.

All items must be labeled, including the grocery gift card, and delivered to the Odyssey House by December 15. If you are unable to deliver, contact Odyssey House to schedule a pick-up.
