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!

I work with a family of 2 adults with 1 male and 2 female children who live well below the poverty line. There are concerns for head lice, roach, and flea infections which we are finding difficult to combat without chemicals. The children are currently sharing a king size bed on the floor. Although this is functional at their age, they would benefit from individual beds, sheets, pillows. (Cleaning Supplies) The family would benefit from a case of RID lice spray and a case of Roach/Flea bombs for the home. The dryer is not working. The family would benefit from a working dryer so they can dry cloth items on high to kill lice eggs on the fabric to combat the infestation.

Mom got out of a domestic violent relationship and had to move quickly. Mom wasn't able to take anything with her. She has nothing and is in need of most things. The most important things are 3 beds(2-twins and 1-queen), dishes, and any living room furniture. They also would take anything they can get for household goods.

Relative foster family adopted their five grandchildren and have two teenage biological children. A family friend's child (12 year old boy) came in to foster care, this family took placement as a "relative placement." Family has a bed, but no extra bedding. Additionally, another dresser (preferably a chest due to space) would be helpful, the child is currently using a basket for his clothing.

Single mother and 3 children moved back to St. Joseph to live with family and escape a severely violent life with mother's ex-boyfriend. The family is now safe but the mother's vehicle has a possible fly wheel problem. The mother can afford to pay some for repair/s but income is very limited. Mother does work while the children are in school daily and life would be much easier if their vehicle was repaired. The vehicle is a 2011 Ford Fusion.

Single mother with 4 children had their house catch on fire last weekend. It was not a total loss but they lost a lot of their belongings due to the smoke damage. They have moved into a new home but still are in need of some things. The children have been having a hard time emotionally dealing with this and have been seeking help at school for their emotional needs. Mom stated that she needs a couch, as hers was destroyed. The fire started in the bedroom closet so most of her clothes were destroyed as well. All of them could use clothes and mom said that she really needed cleaning supplies to clean off what was salvageable from their old house. Mom stated that anything helps because she is overwhelmed currently. She has 4 children and sizes are as follows: boys sizes Kids 5, Kids 8, Men's Medium - boys shoes sizes, 12, 2 wide, and 11. Girl size Jr. Medium clothes and 8 women shoe. Mom wears size xl-2xl and size 8 shoe. Updated on November 28, 2022 by an Agency Worker
She has 4 children, not 3.

This request is for a relative placement that will be taking placement of their 14 year old sibling. The relative wants to be a strong support and placement for their younger sibling as they have shared traumatic experiences and this relative wants to help their younger sibling as much as they can. The relative is in dire need of a bed and dresser for this teen. Any help would be greatly appreciated as the teen will be discharged from the hospital and placed today.

This request is for a relative placement out of state. They are anxiously awaiting ICPC to be completed so they can take placement. This is a young couple who are in need of everything baby. They do live in Delaware so if the items are purchased CD would asked that they are shipped to this family directly. However gift cards would work as well so this family can buy the things they want specifically. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me. For Safety & Cleaning they could really benefit from outlet covers, cabinet locks, and an oversized baby gate for the stairs. The gift card is to get the various other items needed in order to make placement

Critical Need
A family of 5 is currently in desperate need of financial assistance with an overdue electric bill ($3,700) and an $800 phone bill as soon as possible. They were staying with the wife's mother, but were recently told that only the children could stay. This forced the husband and wife to go back to an unlighted home, and they are currently living by candlelight (have been since Thursday 9/29). Both husband and wife are unemployed. The husband is interviewing this Wednesday, but the wife is currently awaiting medical clearance to start back at Amazon after an osteoarthritis flair up.

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.
