Children's Division is asking for assistance in getting a family a crib for their baby boy. The father is raising his child in his home and is in need of a crib, crib mattress, and fitted sheets/bedding.
I have a student at the high school who is wanting to attend his senior prom. He currently has a brother who is going through expensive treatments and at this time it is a single parent household and money is tight. He has been informed by his parent that they will not be able to afford a tux/suit for the prom. I have reached out to a local business who is willing to provide the student with the best style and fit for the big day for $125 and will run it under the schools name so there will be no taxes. They are also agreeable to do a fitting at no cost. If anyone is agreeable to assist this student, we can give him a senior prom to remember! Thank you in advance.

Children were put into state custody because of the condition of the home. Mom does not have adequate plumbing and there are boxes, clothes, trash piled in most rooms of the home. One of the children painted black handprints all over their bedroom wall. Mom needs help cleaning the house, acquiring cleaning supplies like buckets, vacuums, sprays, etc. The biggest help to mom would be a team of people to help her clean out the house. She was previously working with Cornerstones to do this but they won't help her now that the children are in custody. One of the kiddos expressed to me that they were always so stressed worrying about mom and sibling and always having to clean up after them. Mom's mental health continues to decrease as she feels demoralized and hopeless and at fault for her home.

Single, Christian Mom of two needs help with a vehicle repair. This hardworking Mom has struggled through several setbacks, including a fire that destroyed her home, a divorce, and an illness of one of the children. She receives no support from the kids' Dad. She has remained dedicated to raising her children in the ways of the Lord, and has stepped in herself to meet CarePortal needs for local families. She commuted to work and depends on her only vehicle for transportation. Repairing this vehicle will ensure she is able to continue working to support her children.
Placement (aunt) took in her nieces this last week and are converting their office into the girls bedroom. Currently all bio-kids are sleeping in the parents room so that the girls can sleep in a bed. DCF requires the girls to have their own beds by a certain amount of time so that placement can keep the girls. This would be a huge help as the girls did not come with any of their own bedding or clothes so aunt is buying them all new things and "foster" proofing their house to meet regulation requirements.
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.
