A family with a 14 year old freshman and a 16 year old junior in high school need help with this month's rent payment. The payment of $890 is due on 11/30/23. Mom was let go from her job the week before Thanksgiving and is currently in the process of obtaining other employment. The family recently obtained residency in a new rental home after living in hotels for over a year. If the family was able to pay their rent for this month, the children will be able to stay in the first stable living environment they have had for over a year. This would allow the children to focus on their academics, emotional, and mental well-being instead of being concerned with where they will sleep that night.

Mother is on a THV with her 2 year old son She has made lots of progress of the year and has stable housing and is drug free. Her son is growing quickly and unfortunately all the clothes she was given he has out grown, or he just only has 3 pairs of socks for example. I asked Mom send me a list of the clothing she needs for her son. this is the list, 10-15 pairs of 2t socks, 4 pairs of 3t jeans, 4 pairs of 3t sweats, 4 pairs of 3t hoodies, 4-5 shirts sized 3t, a winter coat, snow boots, 2 sweaters 3t, and 2 pairs of tennis shoes size 6. I have went upon myself and research how much each of these things would cost at Walmart. Socks are $19.99 for a 12 pack, Jeans are $15 a pair, sweats and hoodies we can do bundles a matching set for $12.53 for the hoodie and sweats or $20.76 for a three pack of sweats or $11.98 for one hoodie, Shirts $17.92 for a 4 pack, winter coat is $23.98, snow boost size 6 are $28.99, tennis shoes size black neutral pair $16.87 colorful pair $18.44, and sweaters would be $11.64 each. After calculating it all up the total was $279.80. I'm asking for $300 for Mom for any extra taxes or fees and to make sure her son can get everything he needs. I will accompany her on the clothing hall so we make sure we get the right items priced on this form.

On the children's day of referral into foster care, our kinship department worked tirelessly to find relative connections for these four children to help ensure that they would be able to stay together with their siblings. We were able to find an uncle of the children and his significant other that were enthused to take in the children to ensure that the children were able to go to a home that they were familiar with and people that they had connections to. They were able to be approved as the placement for the children and the children have been safe and stable in their uncle's home since coming into care. However, the family has had a difficult time being able to get beds and mattresses for the children to be able to continue to remain in the home and they are in need of two twin sized bed frames and mattresses and a twin sized bunk bed with mattresses as soon as possible to be able to continue to maintain the children in the home. The family would greatly appreciate any assistance in getting these items to be able to continue to remain placement for their nieces and nephew. Thank you for your consideration and for any help that you may be able to provide.
Struggling family has unexpected bills and has fallen behind on their storage bill. As of Nov 27, 2023 All their belongings will be put up for auction.
Family got behind when living situations changed and family had to start paying all of the rent instead of just 600.00$
Family is now needing to move and pay first and last month rent for a bigger place so their family can be re unified. Already struggling they now have to pay a 1200$ deposit / $250 per fee and first month's rent which is $1225. Not to mention they lost their food stamps and any extra money goes to feeding the kids. Unfortunately, if their unit is lost at auction this will put reintegration even further behind due to having to replace all their belonging. Would you please consider pitching in.
We are so grateful
This family is trying to find housing for the rest of the month until December 1st where they have a plan for where they are going to live until they get stable housing of their own. They are living in a hotel and have it paid up until the 25th but need assistance trying to get the hotel paid for until December 1st. The family has a plan to get themselves in a position to be stable but needs this assistance to make their plan happen. They get paid on the 1st of the month and have a plan to get stable housing and a cheap car with this money. If this family can make it until December 1st in the hotel they will be able to get a car and stable housing.

A 17-year-old girl, eldest of her family, expressed feeling frustrated because her car needs repair. At 17, there are a lot of things she is buying for her senior year that she needs money for (college applications, basketball shoes, fees on her school account, senior pictures, etc) but without a car she is hardly able to work as she has no way to get there. She lives in a single parent household with four siblings and helps mom with running errands and taking kids to and from school. This young woman is a A+ student and is very involved in her community.
She said it would be a little over $250 to fix her car but any assistance would help tremendously.

A single mother of four is needing some assistance to help children. She is not working at this time due to the cost of daycare and has three children that are not yet in school and one being an infant. She has utilized her older car seat from her other children for the infant, but she is asking for assistance with a newer car seat that will transition as the child ages and the baby is currently about 4 1/2 months old but bigger than the average child at that age. In the request the toddler/convertible car seat was chosen as mom would like one that transitions but want to again point out that kiddo is still an infant so chose the most accurate for description purposes. She also would like to get a pack 'n play for her baby with a fitted sheet. She does not want a crib and has specifically asked for a pack 'n play only. In addition to that, the mom could also use some help with clothing for all of the children. There is a boy who is 6 years old and would wear size 7 or 8, medium, two girls ages 3 and 4 and similar in size so sizes 4 and 5 would be fine for both. The 4 1/2 month could benefit from clothing sizes 6 months and above. All of this will help keep the kiddos safe, warm, and ready for the ever-changing weather and help alleviate some of the financial stress on the mom. Thanks!
We can help with the pack n play and crib sheet. If mom has transportation, she can visit our church's Impact Center and pick out clothes for her kiddos. She just needs to make an appointment. If she doesn't have transportation, we may be able to pick up clothing for her.

Grandmother/mother needs assistance with her rent. On top of her three minor children and her two adult children, has taken in her younger grandsons, one of whom is disabled, which has put a strain on her finances. Grandmother has been a saint to her family and has taken care of them, while also caring for her nieces and nephews, and her terminally ill mother, who lives in Kansas. This money would help her take care of her rent and allow her family to stay in the same home they have for decades.
