Help Preserve a Foster Care Placement

Normal Request
Hello, I have a long time foster family that has had an outbreak of bed bugs before and they seem to be reappearing again. This family has been working with MCD for years and has adopted many of our children. They are a tremendous blessing to us when it comes to placement of kids. This week the school reported two of the children showing up to school with them on their backpacks. The placement has been trying home remedies and so much more and has priced some local exterminators to hopefully get the funds up for it. But she is afraid by the time they can afford It which wouldn’t be until tax time and we believe the outbreak would be terrible. Money is tight and there are 7+ people living in this home which are the younger children she has adopted from MCD and a child currently in custody. As of now MCD cannot lose this placement as she is the only person left on this child’s family that qualifies to have her in their home. Is there anything or anyone able to help with the cost. Valor pest control is familiar with the home and the spots they mainly populate. The contact for Jason is(###) ###-####. They had priced it at $1000 but maybe someone knows of another place that is able to heat treat the home?

I have a family of 7 that needs help getting rid of bed bugs in their house. The family has one child that is disabled and has special needs and another child that has special needs. Two of the children are 2 years and younger. The last child stays with grandparents some times but does stay in the house with parents too. The family has been spraying and doing what they can to get rid of the bedbugs but they cannot afford for an exterminator to come in. According to school personnel I talked to the disabled child has bites on him and the school has been having to wash his belongings and clothes when he gets to school. His wheelchair also has bedbugs on it when he gets to school and eggs have also been noticed. Getting rid of the bedbugs will help keep the children from being bitten and positively help the living environment for the children.

High Urgency Request
The child has only about two days left of the medicine that is needed for his health and well-being.The child lives with his dad in a homeless shelter. The child was on Medicaid, but it has expired. The dad of the child has to re-apply, but that might take a while. The dad does not have the money to pay for the medicine that the child needs. The prescription is at CVS in Cape Girardeau, MO. The cost of the prescription is over $500. If this request is filled it will help the well-being of the child.

Critical Request
I am sending in a request for a foster child on my case load. The case originated in Scott County where placement was located in St. Genevie with kinship. The child moved from her previous placement where it was discovered that her items were covered in bed bugs. The family is wanting to keep her in the home, but they are unable to financially pay for the amount of getting the home sprayed. The home is a 3 bedroom trailer.
