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.

Local family of 5 needing assistance with a leaky windshield. Mom shared that when it rains, rain just pours in to her front windshield of her truck. She showed me where you can push on the windshield and it moves, nearly popping out. The family does not have a garage to park in and parents are very concerned about upcoming freezing temps causing even more damage and safety concerns. Mom called and got a quote from Cameron Glass.

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!
