Help Preserve a Kinship Placement

Normal Request
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!

This family of 6, are very hard working but they don't have some basic necessities, such as beds. At this time they are sleeping on the floor and still managing to work and go to school every day, having beds would really make a difference their daily lives, especially for the children to have beds to sleep in.

High Urgency Request
DCCCA is working with a homeless family who have been living in a hotel. The mother has recently started working, DCCCA has helped the family obtain childcare, transportation for school, and is working to help with housing. The mom's mother's health is declining and is not expected to live much long so the mom has not been able to work this week or last between the holiday and being with her mother. Because of this the family is $350 short to pay the December hotel rent on Saturday (12/3). If you can help cover all or a portion of this need for the family it will allow them to continue to have a stable place to live while DCCCA continues to work with the family to secure more permanent housing and allow the mom to spend this week with her mother and not worry about working or losing their place to stay.

Normal Request
A caregiver needs help keeping her phone line turned on to remain in touch with her children while at work. Recently, one of her children has been struggling with some behaviors that require extra supervision. She had to call off work several times to remain with her child and has fallen behind on bills. Now she is able to return to work, but she needs to prioritize her phone so her child or the adult who is supervising can always reach her. Helping meet this request will help a caregiver be able to support her child and keep the family safe.

Hello, We have a kinship placement that has a one-year-old female. They have had her since she was a newborn and are in the final stages of adoption. Yay! She is becoming very active, and we are requesting a playpen for the family. They are currently not using daycare and have been a very conscientious, loving place for this baby and we would like to help if we can. Playpen can be gently used. Thank you so much for taking the time to read!

Normal Need
We responded to a CarePortal request for this family back in September. Bio family had just reintegrated with their two female children ages 5 and 4 and were needing help with rent and two dressers. We were able to connect on both of the needs and met this sweet family in person to deliver the items. Soon after, a car battery installation was needed and before we even had a chance to have one of our volunteers get over there to help, dad had already taken care of it himself. They have a strong desire to be independent. We have been staying in touch with them and they recently let us know that the vehicle had broken down for good. Thankfully, they have another car they can use if the past due payment on it is made. They are able to afford the monthly payments on their own, they just need help getting caught up. Any amount is appreciated and will help get them closer to self-sufficiency again.

Critical Need
A single mom with an 8 year-old boy and 9 year-old girl coming out of homelessness after losing disability benefits and are in major need of funding for utility bills. Dad is an addict and not in the picture and uncle on dad's side is helping them get stable. They are staying in an empty house owned by a relative of the uncle and he is paying their rent for now but they are living with no furniture, water or electricity. There are past due balances and activation fees on the electric and water that need to be paid in order for them to be turned on, totaling almost $1500, but any amount helps! We are hoping the CarePortal community can contribute some funds to help get the utilities turned on for this family.
