High Urgency Request
This request is for a family of three which includes a single mom and twin three year old girls. Mom recently moved to this home after leaving a domestic violent relationship and is trying to get on her feet. Mom is currently not employed due to the pandemic. Mom was receiving child support however, there is no order in place at this time and the father of the children is refusing to pay anything until it is ordered by a court. Mom received a job offer however, they are waiting for her background check to clear. There are charges on her record that will be expunged once her legal fees are paid. Mom needs assistance with legal fees, rent, electricity and internet. This is a one time request. As soon as the charges are removed, she will have a good paying job and be able to pay all of her bills on her own. The break down is as follows- $950.00 for rent and water for October, $230.96 for electricity (includes past due amount), $50.00 for internet (the girls attend virtual school some days and internet is required), $241.58 for court fees to remove charges from her record and $514.00 to pay her attorney.

High Urgency Request
This request is for a family of seven which includes two parents and five children. The family recently relocated from Odessa due to mom losing her job. Dad works offshore on a tugboat three weeks of the month. So, when schools were shut down due to COVID-19, mom lost her job because she was forced to quarantine with their five children. The loss of income has devastated this family. They moved to Rockport to live with relatives to alleviate some of the financial strain. The expenses to move were large so, they were forced to leave most of their belongings in a storage unit. They have been unable to afford to return and collect their belongings so, they were auctioned off. The family is requesting assistance with beds, furniture, household appliances and goods and clothing for the children. Clothing sizes- 13 yr old girl 10-12 jeans/shorts small/medium shirts 7 1/2 size shoes 5 yr old girl 5T/6T jeans/shorts/shirts/dresses 12 1/2-1 size shoes 7 yr old boy 5-8 jeans/shorts 7-8 shirts 2-3 size shoes 4 yr old twin boys 4T-5T jeans/shorts 5T shirts 12-1 size shoes $200.00 supply amount is for household items (pots, pans, silverware, dishes) $800.00 supply amount is for cell phone bill which is past due and for a new phone

Ruth: Since Children's Coalition has responded and given a twin bed instead of bunk bed, is another twin needed? St. Peter's can provide a used twin sofa/bed if another bed is needed.
