What Are “Adopt-a-Family” Programs?
Are you looking forward to (but also dreading) your “Adopt-a-Family” program this holiday season? Love the outcome but not looking forward to the spreadsheets or mounds of paperwork? Do you run a toy collection drive instead of “Adopt-a-Child” because of the logistical concerns? Roonga’s online adoption drives streamline the traditional “Adopt-a-Family” (or “Adopt-a-Person”) programs by reducing the amount of time you spend reviewing requests, tracking adoptions, and monitoring receipts. Contact us to learn about our free starter package!

Streamline your request collection process
Social workers enter and update requests directly online – eliminating the need to send forms back and forth. The status of requests are tracked in real-time so all parties know what’s going on throughout the program..
Improve the quality of your requests
Rules built into Roonga’s online adoption drive ensure greater consistency and quality in the descriptions entered by your social workers. Your client profiles and requests can only be published once approved. Our approval workflow also allows you provide timely feedback to your social workers and case managers.

Track results in real time
Track the adoption status of your clients in real-time. Through our online reports, you know exactly who has been adopted and who has not. Come dropoff time, you also know which gifts have been received and which have not.
Draw in your donors to your cause
Engage your supporters in a more meaningful way by allowing them to select their own families or children. Searching and reading the stories allows them to establish a deeper connection with your clients – and in the process, your donors may even select more adoptees than intended!

How it Works?
Set up a drive in as little as 10-15 minutes! We provide the tools to set up and monitor your drive. Once you get the word out, our system stores items requests, and tracks adoptions and drop-offs.

Receive your items
Once the drive closes, your donors drop off their items at your specified location for distribution. Roonga tracks the receipts so you know which donors may need a nudge.

Heather Furuta, Volunteer Program Manager,
Bill Wilson Center
Community Action Partnership of Orange County (CAP OC):
Our staff liked submitting their wishlists directly into Roonga. It eliminated the redundant paperwork and unecessary back and forth, and revisions were all tracked in Roonga. Overall, it was a lot less work than our previous paper-based system. Thanks, Roonga!

We had a great experience with Roonga! Their program helped us reduce our manual work in-house and our sponsors were appreciative of being able to adopt families online. We hope to do even more online next year!
