Christmas for Kids 2018

Imagine waking up on Christmas morning away from the familiarity of home and wondering if Santa remembered to visit. That’s the reality for the teen boys and girls (ages 12-17) who spend the holidays with us at Youth Home.

Holiday traditions are important to us because most of our kids have never had the chance to experience the fun of opening stockings, decorating the tree, or receiving a present. All they want in the world is to feel loved. Here are some ways you can brighten their holidays:


Delivering gifts to every child on earth takes a lot of milk and cookies. Give Santa a hand this Christmas by adopting a Dove Tree and donating the items on its decorative gift tags. For a fun group activity, invite your office or family to participate and see how many gifts you can cross off Santa’s list. Each tree comes with 25 tags that can be customized for a specific price range or area of interest (like clothing, toys, or hygiene). You can even choose a cash tree and Youth Home’s staff will do the shopping for you!

Please deliver donations to Youth Home by December 12th so the elves can have them under the tree in time for Christmas.* Items can be mailed (Attn: Development) or dropped off at the administration building on our campus (20400 Colonel Glenn Road, Little Rock, AR 72210) between 8:30am and 5:00pm, Monday-Friday. To arrange pick-up of a large or group donation, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


We’ve gathered our kids’ most requested items in one place, leaving you free to enjoy shopping without the hassle of holiday crowds. When you’re ready, have your order shipped straight to Youth Home.


Santa’s elves will use your donation to purchase items that our kids need.*

*Donations received after the holidays are used as birthday, incentive, and other gifts throughout the year.


Youth Home, Inc. is funded almost entirely by donations. To support our mission, you can make a donation online.
