COVID-19 is taking a horrific toll on the Elders and their families. Due to the high rate of loss and hospitalization among the Elders during this time, Adopt-A-Native-Elder is putting a temporary hold on new adoptions.

There are other means of a support you may provide for the Elders as we do our best to provide as much assistance to the Elders through the mail. We are prioritizing the distribution of food certificates while also working to mail as many firewood vouchers and yarn bundles as we can now and in the upcoming months. Your donations make this possible.

Another way you can help support the Elders is by sharing our A.N.E. social media posts and your own stories of service to the Elders with your friends and families. For the well-being of the Elders, it is vital we do what we can to increase awareness of the crisis facing Navajo Nation and our efforts to support our traditional Navajo Elders.

Thank you for your dedication and service to the Elders.
