The family had to flee their situation in another city due to very unfortunate circumstances. Mom currently has advanced colon cancer and is unable to work or get out of the house much recently. Dad has a job, but they have fallen on hard times with the unexpected, urgent move. Dad does have to take off work frequently to attend mom's doctor's appointments. They are running very low on money to provide needs, such as food. They also have no appliances at their new house since they had to leave all of those at the old house. The family is in need of food, stove, washer and dryer. Anything you could provide would be helpful.

A 15-year-old male living with a kinship family walks to school every day. With the change in temperatures and winter coming he is in need of a pair of snow boots. He wears a size 15 so these are hard to find in-store and more expensive than a typical pair of boots. He has found a pair on Amazon, but at this family does not have the extra funds to purchase them. We are asking for help purchasing the below boots in brown size 15 wide, so he can continue to walk to school and be prepared for the cold temperatures.

Single mom is a relative placement for her young niece, who is in foster care. The aunt has a car repair that needs to be done and desperately needs assistance. If there is anyone who can do the repair or help to pay for the repair, it would be greatly appreciated, as the aunt does not have the money. This car is the families only personal method of transportation. This would help the aunt to get to work, get the children to and from school, to therapy appointments and other necessary appointments. The aunt has gotten an estimate from an auto repair shop. The diagnosis is "leaking antifreeze from the oil cooler." The estimate repair cost is $718.40. Thank you for your consideration to helping this family.
A mother has been having a hard time trying to provide for her son and needs assistance with rent. She owes $600 for this month and has just moved into her new place. Any assistance would be appreciated. This would free up financial resources for the family.

This is a two parent family who has struggled for years trying to meet adequate housing requirements. They have a lot of needs, but if we could get help with a few specific things, it will prevent further required action from Children's Division.
The floors of the home are plywood. They are in the need of Kilz to use on the floors and some walls. The family has tried to rid the home of roaches on their own with no success. An exterminator may be too expensive, but we're looking for an extermination of roaches if possible. Updated on November 16, 2023 by an Agency Worker Family still in need.
I am working with a local family that is in need of assistance with a vehicle repair. Their primary vehicle had the air compressor go out in their car; which affects the cabin air intake, and power steering so it is not able to be driven. They requested a quote for the repair, and it will cost about $2,000. The family is aware that this is an expensive repair and is asking for any kind of assistance to cover part of the bill or help with performing the repair. The family has a child that is in need of medical care and reliable transportation is very important for this family!
