There is a husband and a wife that agreed to take in all five of the wife's grandchildren. Two of the grandchildren aren't biologically related to her, but despite that she was more than willing to take in all five children so that the siblings wouldn't be separated. The family has been able to provide these children with all of the items that they need with no notice of these children coming into care and needing placement. The three youngest children have a bedroom with a closet and dresser for their belongings to go. But the two oldest don't have a dresser for their clothes yet. We are asking for someone to be able to donate a dresser for the two older girls so that they will have a place for their clothes to go. Having this dresser provided will bring even more stability into their lives as they are making the transition to living with their grandparents. This will also help make getting ready into the morning for school an easier and normal process. Help would be truly appreciated!
I have a high school student who is in need of a graphing calculator. The family can not afford to purchase one and we have looked at several pawn Shops and other platforms to find one for the child. This would help the child with her math and homework which in turn gets her better grades and hope for a college scholarship. It does not have to be new if someone had a used one that works, that would be great.

Yesterday we took into care a sibling set of 6 that we were able to place all 6 together and with family. The kids came with very little to no items and the relatives have has no time to prepare for their household being over doubled within hours of the kids coming into care. The ages and sizes are as follows
The sizes are as follows:
Girl 3-6 months

The father in this case is a former addict and is trying to reintegrate with his children with very little supports to rely on. He has been working on his mental health, maintaining employment at a local production factory, and maintaining his sobriety. He has been jumping through all of these hoops all while maintaining as good a relationship with his 4 children as he can. His ex-wife has been less than willing to work with this agency as well to reintegrate with her children, so in this case the father is doing this alone. The two smallest children have special needs and quite a lot of behavioral issues. At this time, the father needs help on a security deposit for a residence. Our agency is able to help with half of this need, but there is a total need of $1,100 to help make this happen. The father did not want to ask for assistance, but has finally agreed to seek help for this substantial amount. This agency has plans to immediately work towards overnight visits with the intent of reintegration soon after should he be able to move into this residence. Thank you for any and all assistance.
I have a family who is moving into a residence after having not been able to live together for the last 4 months. The mother is able to provide a home for her children. DCCCA is asking for pillows for this family as they do not have any. In providing this need, you will be helping the mother not spend extra money so she can apply the money to her deposit and first month's rent.
Thank you in advance for helping this family and this mother provide for her children.

I have a single mom in need of assistance with obtaining a sturdy garment/ clothing rack (that is enclosed/ can be covered) to store her clothing. Mom and her youngest rent a bedroom with limited closet space. Soon her other child will be moving in with her, which will make things a little tight on space in the bedroom. Her roommates have approved her putting a garment rack outside of her bedroom door so she can have space to fit clothing. The family will appreciate any donation- new or used. It appears garment racks range from $15 to $60.
I may be able to assist with this. I have a used covered (zips up the middle) garment rack in good condition. The size is a concern as it is 5'2" high, 5' wide and 19" deep. If this will work for this family, please let me know. Jennifer Lopez
Good evening! I have a single mom with a baby boy in need of a high chair and a gate for an average size door. Her little guy is on the move and doing big things. She is happy for a new or used items. If this is something you can help with please let me know. Thank you.
I have a houseless family in need of financial assistance for maintenance on their car. One parent is working full time and relies on this vehicle to get to and from work, the store, and kids appointments. Since the family is houseless, they are paying an outstanding amount each month to afford their hotel. They do not have any extra funds to take care of their car repairs. The family needs an oil change and brakes for their car.
The young brother of a 13yr old had to take his sister into his home there was no other option at this time. The brother very young himself gave his sister his bed , the young man has so little and works hard every day and he stepped up to help his sister when she needed him. Please assist with getting the 13yr old a bed. This would help the transition so much if both could have a bed to sleep on.
This single mother of two, works really hard to provide for her children, but when the children were home while the mother was working, the children made her pots and pans into toys for their enjoyment. The mother had only a few pots and pans and silver ware before the children's fun day and now she has very little. It would help this mother out tremendously to have her plates and bowls and a couple of pots and pans were replaced.
DCCCA is working with a single mother and two teenage children who have recently moved and are needing some basic items for their home as they reestablish themselves. Mom is disabled and cannot work and the family lives on a fixed income and are not able to make these extra purchases on their budget. Gently used items would be accepted. Thank you.

work for the family?
This 14 year old boy has been in care for over two years. He moved bounced around a little, before finding stable placement with his siblings in March of 2021. He has an 8th grade field trip to Washinton, DC coming up in April (with payment due in December). This youth is a great kid. Once he got into a stable and loving home, and was able to find the right dosage of medication, he has thrived. He does well in school, loves playing sports, and he has a very humble and kind personality. He would really like to go on this trip, and his foster family would really like for him to be able to join his classmates. They need some help to make this happen. The cost of the trip is $1,609, and that is a lot for the family to take on, especially since they have five other children in the home.
This family is currently facing financial hardship due to being a single-income household, as mom has been facing some health issues. They're dealing with food insecurity and struggling to pay utility bills, as well as recently having to pay for bed bug treatment for the home. They already receive food stamps and utilize community resources (e.g., Just Food) when they can.
I think they'll take any amount of relief they can get, and in any form, whether it's gas cards so they can get to work, gift cards for the grocery store, cash reimbursement for bed bug treatment, etc. In addition, the family is facing financial hardship to provide Christmas gifts.
Single mother with little social support. She just had a baby, and he needs formula. Her WIC appointment is not until 12/15 so she can have the program cover the formula expenses. She did try breast feeding but her body has not been producing milk. Mom is needing Similac 360 total care formula. I have included the following link for this formula found at the Target in Mission, which is right next door to our office:
Thank you for your support of mom and baby!
Two children are being reunified with their father after he was released from a stretch in prison. The children are very excited to be with him again and he is working on making their house a home. They are in need of two twin sized bed frames and mattresses for the kids. Any help is greatly appreciated!
We have an Uncle that took in his niece and nephew to prevent the children going into foster care. He has had the children for a few weeks and we determined this may be a long term situation (over 6 months). The children need bed frames and mattresses. The two year old girl is sleeping in a pack and play. The seven year old boy is sleeping on a cot. If anyone can donate a toddler bed frame, a twin/ full size bed for the 7 year old, and mattresses, the relative would really appreciate the assistance. The family is also open to bunk beds if that is available. Please reach out if you can assist with used beds or new beds. Thank you!
