Critical Request
I am working with a family that has a long history of domestic violence. The mother of the children now has a protection order against her spouse. Her spouse had said he was paying the bills for the home and everything was up to date. She had to take her youngest infant son to the emergency room last night for a COVID test and the child was diagnosed with pneumonia. Today her water had been turned off, and she is in need of $567.00 of back pay to have the water turned back on as her spouse had not been paying the bill. She is able to obtain $100 of assistance through Catholic Outreach, so we are requesting the remaining $467 as she has a sick child and needs running water.

Help Improve a Child's Well-being

Normal Request
Child has been in custody since 7/20/16 and is finally in her adoptive home. She is wanting a trumpet for the coming school year (she already plays guitar) and the family would like to support her ongoing desire to learn to play instruments. Child is thriving in her current home and has been able to make great connections with her family. She is 12 years old and has been with us since she was 8. She is a great kid and would benefit from this gift! I am not quite sure what the value of a trumpet would be so the $100 is a guess.

Stabilize Housing Insecurity
4
Normal Request
A single mom with three teen kids, one special needs, and two dogs is looking for transitional housing for 3-6 months after job insecurity forced her and kids into homelessness. They have been using what little money they had to stay in a pet friendly hotel room. Mom is very open to options like a finished basement, money to help pay rent somewhere, or someone that has a spare guest house, apartment, etc. so she and kids don't have to camp or get rid of their dogs to stay at the homeless shelter (which she's worried would be very traumatic for the kids). When she is able to secure housing, she's confident in her ability to find additional employment opportunities that will help secure longer term housing. She could also use help with car repair (she estimates the repair at $500)

Rachel: We can help with $500 towards her car repairs. We would prefer to pay this directly to a mechanic if possible. We are also working on some leads for temporary housing. We will keep you updated.
