A Home for the Holidays (AHFTH) is an annual special, which airs on CBS in December. It features musical performances and celebrities presenting inspirational stories about families that have come together through foster care adoption. Its purpose is to raise awareness about adoption from foster care and to inspire potential adoptive parents to get more information about youth in foster care who are waiting for a familiy of their own.
AHFTH waiting children segments have provided a call to action for more than 100 youth in foster care, with a more than 60% success rate moving the children toward adoption. In 2008, A Home for the Holidays was a recipient of the Second Annual Television Academy Honors and also received The US Children’s Bureau award for Adoption Excellence.
