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 have a high school student who is in need of a graphing calculator. The family can not afford to purchase one and we have looked at several pawn Shops and other platforms to find one for the child. This would help the child with her math and homework which in turn gets her better grades and hope for a college scholarship. It does not have to be new if someone had a used one that works, that would be great. Thank you!!

I have a houseless family in need of financial assistance for maintenance on their car. One parent is working full time and relies on this vehicle to get to and from work, the store, and kids appointments. Since the family is houseless, they are paying an outstanding amount each month to afford their hotel. They do not have any extra funds to take care of their car repairs. The family needs an oil change and brakes for their car.

The young brother of a 13yr old had to take his sister into his home there was no other option at this time. The brother very young himself gave his sister his bed , the young man has so little and works hard every day and he stepped up to help his sister when she needed him. Please assist with getting the 13yr old a bed. This would help the transition so much if both could have a bed to sleep on.

Critical Request
We are requesting an Uber gift card to help mom with transportation to the hospital to visit her baby in the NICU. The baby was born early and admitted in the NICU for over a month. Mom's car broke down and the costs are not affordable for the family to fix. The roundtrip cost for mom to get to and from the hospital is $22/ day. The team has looked into the bus route and determined it is not a feasible option. The team is working with the hospital social worker for transportation options in the future. The amount requested ($88) will assist mom with transportation for 4 days this week to get to the hospital to visit with her baby. We do ask if the donor can donate an uber gift card in the amount of $88 since mom doesnt have transportation to get to the bank for other payment methods.

Normal Request
This 14 year old boy has been in care for over two years. He moved bounced around a little, before finding stable placement with his siblings in March of 2021. He has an 8th grade field trip to Washinton, DC coming up in April (with payment due in December). This youth is a great kid. Once he got into a stable and loving home, and was able to find the right dosage of medication, he has thrived. He does well in school, loves playing sports, and he has a very humble and kind personality. He would really like to go on this trip, and his foster family would really like for him to be able to join his classmates. They need some help to make this happen. The cost of the trip is $1,609, and that is a lot for the family to take on, especially since they have five other children in the home.

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.

We have an Uncle that took in his niece and nephew to prevent the children going into foster care. He has had the children for a few weeks and we determined this may be a long term situation (over 6 months). The children need bed frames and mattresses. The two year old girl is sleeping in a pack and play. The seven year old boy is sleeping on a cot. If anyone can donate a toddler bed frame, a twin/ full size bed for the 7 year old, and mattresses, the relative would really appreciate the assistance. The family is also open to bunk beds if that is available. Please reach out if you can assist with used beds or new beds. Thank you!

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!

This request impacts multiple families.

DCCCA Family Preservation is hosting our 3rd Annual Christmas Party for the at-risk families we serve. This event gives families the opportunity to step away from their stressful life events, even for just a short while, to have a joyful evening full of fun, food, and festivities. This event can help form positive core memories for vulnerable children -- many who experience extreme poverty and would love nothing more than some bonding time with their parents to play games, have a nice meal, sing and even laugh together. DCCCA is a nonprofit organization; therefore, we rely on the generosity of the community to help fund our events. Donated funds will help us purchase the food, paper goods, and other essential items. If you are able, please consider helping us bring smiles and laughter to the faces of many children as we share with them the magic and joy of Christmas. Thank you for all you do for the community! Updated on November 28, 2022 by an Agency Worker
