This last year DCCCA has established our own Food and Hygiene Pantry to meet the needs of families who are in a crisis. We learned that a lot of times food or other household items are needed immediately by families when there are no community resources available or the family does not have adequate transportation and DCCCA wanted to help bridge that gap. We rely on our church and community partners to keep items stocked and could use help now restocking on our most essential items! Any support for our pantry would be extremely appreciated! Whether you would like to donate one time or become a regular donor. In the request I will include examples of food that our families really love receiving in our food boxes. (Please do not donate additional canned vegetables and fruits we still have quite a bit!) What our families really benefit from is items to make meals with.

Help Prevent a Child From Entering Foster Care

Normal Request
Currently in this home Dad is the only one working. He is a hard worker and does his best to provide for his family. The family is very successful at keeping a roof over their heads and food on their table, but after all these bills there is not much money left. They are great at providing safety and meeting the basic needs of their children. However, their home could benefit from a few new items as their current furniture is very old and falling apart. It would mean a lot to the family as far as making them more comfortable as the kids have been having trouble sleeping in their current conditions and the donation of a couch and chair for the living room would allow them to have more spaces to sit, and spend time together comfortably because right now the family spends a lot of their time divided in their rooms. This family also does not have any working AC in the home and with an infant living there part time the family could desperately use a window ac and a box fan or two. DCCCA is also actively looking for these items as well but has been having trouble. Any support for this family would be extremely appreciated!

C (7 year old male) loves being in a kinship placement with his cousins with his aunt and uncle. He also has a special bonus with having grandparents in the home so there is not a shortage on love. Aunt and Uncle also care for the grandparents with their incomes being the only ones, it is financially very limiting. It is so expensive to go to the laundry mat and they could used some assistance with a washer and dryer, gently used would be wonderful. They would be so grateful. They also desperately need a fridge as they are having to go to the store daily because of this. Gently used would be great! Uncle recently changed jobs and there is a lull with his paycheck, so any groceries that could be helped with would be a huge blessing. Thank you so much!

Mom has had to work two jobs through the school year in order to make ends meet. She has fallen two months behind on rent for her and her three children. She thinks that she will be able to maintain if someone can help her get caught up so they are not evicted from their residence. Anything that you can help do financially to help this family would be a wonderful blessing. Any amount will help make a difference and we appreciate you so much. Thank you for your generosity!

Mother is currently out of town and is only coming in to town to visit the children. Father, , is sole provider at this point for his 6 children, ages 14, 12, 11, 9, 8, and 7. Father was on payment plan for his utilities and missed a water bill payment, so he was disconnected. He diverted funds from his gas bill to the water bill to get his water turned back on. In doing so, his gas was disconnected. Father is requesting assistance to get his gas turned back on. He believes he owes approximately $800 for them to turn it back on. Father also requested beds for the children. He would like 3 queen beds. There are 4 boys and 2 girls. They would share beds so need 2 boys sheets/blankets and 1 girl sheet/blanket.

​J. (17/Female) is a very sweet, caring, and loving teen in foster care. She is Intellectually and Developmentally Disabled and non-verbal. She is unable to express her feelings and thoughts clearly. Her foster mother has served as an excellent translator for J. . J has been with her current foster mom since 2017, and is flourishing in her care. Lately, when J. has been aggravated or upset, she has been smearing feces and will smash feces into the carpet in her bedroom. Foster mom has spent a lot of money having the carpet cleaned and is looking for help to get the carpet replaced with flooring that will be much easier to clean. Foster mom has stated that she can not afford to keep J. in her home with the expense that it requires to keep it sanitary and safe. Any assistance with any portion of this need would be a blessing, whether it is financial assistance toward this estimate, or if anyone can donate supplies/materials and skilled labor to complete the job. The list below is from an Itemized Quote for Materials and Labor. We deeply appreciate any help getting this done to help J. maintain placement in a clean and safe home. Thank you in advance for your consideration!

A(17 year old female) was in a different placement and put on the family insurance to help pay for braces. She is now in a kinship placement so the insurance from previous family will not pay anymore for the braces and this kinship family is not able to financially. It would be such a blessing to this teenager if we could all pull together and help her take care of this need. What a wonderful gift to her this will be. Thank you so much for showing love and empathy for her. You are all wonderful!
