A family of four young, energetic boys ages 4, 2, and one year old twins, is in need of a quality baby gate to keep the children from getting into hazardous areas in the home and injuring themselves as well as a double stroller for the one year old twins so that the family can take walks and allow the older boys to ride their bikes to expel some energy. The parents have been compliant with all requirements and recently had their kids returned to them a couple months ago due to their success. We would like to help provide for their needs so that they can prosper as a family now and in the future. Thank you!

Help Prevent a Child From Entering Foster Care

High Urgency Request
This family is in desperate need of assistance from their community! The mother is paralyzed and requires 24/7 nursing care, yet she is still able to raise her 2 year old son with assistance from her mother and grandmother! However, the three generations of women residing in this home and caring for this 2 year old need some assistance. The home the grandmother inherited when her husband died is in need of some repairs to help the family avoid code violations (which they cannot afford) to the lawn and windows in the home. Additionally, the grandmother has struggled to sort through the many belongings the grandfather left behind, and the family does not have access to a suitable vehicle to help them haul away items to donate or trash. Please consider volunteering to assist this family in ensuring their home is a safe environment for a little one! The family could use assistance with some home repairs (windows, doors, lawn, etc.), cleaning the home, removing clutter (clothing, boxes, excess furniture, etc.), and toddler-proofing the home (securing "tip over risks", outlet covers, baby gates, etc.). It is important for the child's safety, as the current home environment has many dangerous situations for a young child. Aiding this family will help to prevent the placement of the child outside of the home. This is especially important due to the mother's severely limited mobility, which confines her to a bed in one room of the home. Thank you for any assistance you are able to offer this child and family!

Small children have medical needs and mom is working hard to slowly start anew. The children have been wearing the same few clothes they have been able to gather with the help of some relatives. One-year old, 2 year-old, 5-year old, 7 year old children would be greatly benefited by your generosity.
