Help Prevent a Child From Entering Foster Care
6
Normal Request
DCCCA has been working with a single mom of 5. Mom currently does not work so that she can take care of her 5 daughters, and her only source of income is her SSI. Mom is in the process of getting full custody of all of her kids, which has exhausted any extra money the family has. Her oldest daughter's mattress broke and so the only place for her to currently sleep is on an air mattress that has holes and does not stay inflated throughout the night which has caused her to have difficulty sleeping. This family would be extremely grateful for a mattress donation as mom does not know how long it will be before she can afford to purchase one on her own.

A mother with 5 children age almost 13 and younger moved into Newton from Minnesota with no family support in the area and no knowledge of resources. She works 2 jobs and is struggling with items for her home. When they moved, they left the bulky stuff behind. She was trying to provide a new area for her oldest son who is having severe behavioral problems. In hopes that this move would help change some of that and it is not working for her. This worker is working with her on mental health services in the area as well as an option for family services on behavioral. Mom is doing great with communication with LEO and school. Due to her son's behaviors she is trying to stay away from items with glass and such, as he can be aggressive sometimes. She knows she needs a lot of things but anything will help. The school has been great about supplying her some gift cards for food until her food stamps goes into effect. Family appears to have clothes and doing well with hygiene. The girls have a twin bed set frame but the other 3 don't and are sleeping on mattresses on the floor.

Help Preserve a Kinship Placement

High Urgency Request
A loving grandmother has taken kinship placement of her 16 year old granddaughter, L. Grandma had to move to a larger apartment, in order to allow L. to have her own bedroom. This expense has stretched her finances thin. Grandmother has purchased a headboard and bedding set for L, and gave her granddaughter her own bed in order to take immediate placement of L. Grandma is sleeping on a blow up mattress currently. She has recurring back issues due to the blow up mattress, and she is unable to sleep on the couch as she is too tall. Grandmother would be blessed to receive help obtaining a full size mattress, frame and bedsprings. She would need this size due to how tall she is and the space in the apartment. Thank you in advance, God Bless!
