Help Preserve a Foster Care Placement

Normal Request
A. (age 17/F) is working on her independent living skills, and she is fortunate to be placed with a stable foster care home who can meet the needs for youth with disabilities. Foster mom has helped A. with her weight struggles and health issues. She has also been able to help her with reducing the need for so many prescription medications. Sadly, the foster care home burned down and they have been having to replace all their items. They are still in a rental home, but would be blessed to receive a dresser for A.'s room. Thank you for your consideration to help this loving foster home.

A single father has worked tremendously hard to overcome many adversities, and this has been an ultimate success story!! Dad is employed and working to build a stable home fir his daughter, P. (age 1). This father is currently sleeping on a love seat in the living room, and a futon would allow him to have a bed and couch in the living room. The bedroom is set up for P. and she is just in need of a kid's dresser. The living room is bare, and a small coffee table would offer a place for P. to snack, draw and play. P. and her dad are very bonded, and despite this dad having few support systems, he has come so very far, and he is very motived. His perseverance has impressed all his workers. He would be very blessed to receive support with these last few items to make his apartment a home. Thank you in advance for your consideration!

S. (age 16/M) is a great kid who is doing well in school and placement. His grades are above average, and he works at a local pizza place. He does have a need for help with more jeans at this time. He has grown a lot and is replacing a lot of his clothing, but he could really use help with jeans. S. thinks he is size 40 x 32 or 40x34. He is not particular on brand/style, he just wants to be able to wear them with boots. S. is quiet, but also is a great role model and helps others. He has a bright future ahead of himself, and has a lot of drive to succeed despite his hardships. Any assistance with donated items or a gift card would be a blessing to S. Thank you in advance for your consideration!

A single, working dad has been making progress on reintegrating his daughter, K. (age 5). Visits are going great, and K. was excited to see her bedroom for the first time and dad helped her decorate her walls. Visits will start as overnights in the home, but the current mattress is soiled and needs replaced with a twin OR full size set. Helping this parent obtain a bed for K. will aid in reintegration and progress the case. K. and dad are excited for the future. Thank you in advance for your consideration to help this father and K. God Bless!

A single, working grandparent has her three grandchildren living with her through the kinship program. The grandchildren are Sisters S. (age 8) and A. (age 5) and their brother J. (age 6). An aunt and cousin also live in the home to help out. The children are doing great with grandma, and they are doing well in school. This grandma is working hard to get the home organized and help the children have an improved schedule and routine. This supportive grandma needs help with another twin sized bed frame/mattress/sheets and box spring if frame needs it. Additionally, 3 dressers or 6 plastic drawers would be a huge help for the children to keep their clothes separated and organized. Any assistance would be a huge blessing, thank you for your consideration!

We have been working very hard with a single mom of three. This mom recently left an abusive relationship which has left her and her children homeless. Mom is trying to move her and her children back home to Arkansas and needs help affording the gas to get there. This client's mom lives in Arkansas and she is going to let the family stay with her and help them get their own housing and settled in. Our client is really needing to be around as much of her support system as she can and they are all in Arkansas. We want to help make this happen for her, and get services lined up for her when she gets there, we just need a church that can help this mom afford the gas to make the trip. Any help for this family would be extremely appreciated!

A single dad has worked very hard to reintegrate his daughter (A./age 7) at the end of the month. Great-grandfather also resides in the home, who this dad takes care of, so his funds are limited. Overnights have gone amazing, they have a good time together and watch movies together, cook together, and just other normal activities they haven’t been able to do in so long. Dad has worked extremely hard to get to this point with his daughter after almost two long years and are so excited. Dad and his daughter have a very close relationship and he is looking forward to doing everyday parent tasks once again. He is currently sleeping on the floor with a mattress, and would be incredibly blessed to have a bed of his own. Thank you in advance for your consideration!

​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!
