Parents and a child are brand new to the area. They were living with a friend who unexpectedly kicked them out last week. They were able to find a new place to stay and they move in tomorrow. However, since they do not currently have a car, they have limited places to work since they have to be in walking distance, resulting in very limited income for the family. They are needing a twin-size bed for the child. Also, if able, they could greatly benefit from a microwave. Thank you so much.

A grandmother now has four grandchildren living in her home. Her oldest grandson has recently entered the home. The grandmother was able to get a bed, bed frame, and bed sheets for her grandson, but she is needing help with finding a dresser for him to put his clothes somewhere, besides in bags. This would help the grandson to feel more adjusted to living with his grandmother and make it feel more like home for him. The grandson is 17 years old.

I am currently assisting a young (sister) caring for her young brother. She herself was a child from a trauma background, now suddenly caring for her brother during tough times of the family. The sister is doing well, she is attempting to set up a nice home for the two of them. She has recently moved into a new two-bedroom apartment to meet the needs of the two of them. She could use help to make this house a real home. It would be so great to assist her with a much-needed electric washer and dryer, solid wood bookshelf (as she is an avid reader-with lots of books), and possibly a nice coffee table to cozy up the living room. Although these items are needed for licensure, it would lighten her load to use her limited income to buy food and clothing for her brother. She has limited household items-enough to get by, but even mentioned she needed cookie sheets, pizza pans, and cake pans. She told me the other day she went to back a frozen pizza and realized she had nothing to put them on or to cut it with. She improvised and found some scissors to cut their pizza. "We managed, it worked". She is a strong young lady who has battled to establisher herself and now trying to do right by her brother.

Family of 7 is lacking transportation to and from medical appointments, work, and a grocery store. They live out in the country so a bus pass will not be sufficient. They just bought a car and do not have enough to pay sales tax to get it registered. We are estimating sales tax and registration to be $150. The family is also struggling with mice in their home.
We are seeking a card with $150 for sales tax and registration as well as a few mice traps.
