Help Improve a Child's Well-being

Normal Request
The family's trailer home is not livable. DHS moved the family temporarily to a hotel; first the Candelwood, now the Clairon under SEA funding until December 2, 2021. The home is infested with german cock roaches, black mold, and other bugs, the family also has lice. 4 children, the youngest of 2 years old. The family heat does not work and an estimation of 5,000.00 to repair that. An exterminator came to the home on request of DHS and stated at least 4x to maybe get rid of the cock roaches however they were everywhere, in the walls and ceilings and he stated the black mold was a huge concern and denied taking the work due to the black mold. An FSP for Housing has been submitted to get the family into a house/option in the meantime DHS is providing the hotel under SEA. The family does not have furniture. The children sleep on a mattress in a room, and will not take with to new housing. The children are in need of clothing, shoes, or anything of basic needs to assist this family.

Looking to get a gift card/financial assistance to GetAir. The purpose of this is for their therapist to help work with their sibling relationship and allow them to be engaged in something fun. These siblings are having a rough time with their relationship recently and this experience is something that can be positive where they are both able to have fun together.

Looking for a $100 Visa gift card so that this money can be used to buy various items to help this family. In part, to purchase small rewards for kiddos to earn based on repeated positive behavior. Another part is to purchase two Mom/Son workbook journals so that they can strengthen their relationships. This donation will be used to help promote positive behaviors and aid in curbing the complications that will arise from familial trauma that is triggered during the holiday season.

Help Prevent a Child From Entering Foster Care

Normal Request
A 15 year old male child, who has been couch surfing and has been pawned off on family member after family member, has found a home with family. However, that family is in the process of petitioning a court for custody of the child and cannot apply for benefits for him yet. The child is wearing the same clothes most days and needs new everything as he has almost nothing. New clothing and other things can help improve his confidence and self-esteem and will help the family member utilize resources more efficiently.

Help Strengthen a Bio Family

Normal Request
This request is to support a bio mother working to support her family. She is a victim of domestic violence and is an excellent parent. She is fully engaged in treatment and services and will reunify once she receives housing. However, 1 month into case open, her youngest child (8 month old ) was diagnosed with leukemia and has been in hospital 5 hours away since July 2021. Mother has been staying in the hospital with him to care for him, and is using family support to help care for the other two children (both toddlers). Due to her son's leukemia and needing to remain with him at the hospital a majority of the time, she has been unable to seek/maintain employment. Mom just let SCW know yesterday that she has not been eating due to trying to save money to have transportation to/from Denver for the hospital. Additionally, she has been lacking things like hygiene products and winter clothes due to not having money, and losing a majority of belongings when she left her DV abuser. SCW is hoping to get her some gift cards for grocery/belongings to somewhere like Walmart. Likely groceries that are not easily perishable would be good due to her traveling to/from hospital. This is listed for $200 but anything that can be provided would be wonderful). Additionally, SCW is hoping to connect this mom to supports that can increase her support system and may be able to help with food donations, belonging donations, or assistance when reunifying (furniture, household items, ect), or ongoing support as kiddo has bone marrow transplant upcoming. Mom is religious and likely would be open to ongoing supports through Churches or other organizations. Mom is in town for about 2 more weeks or less until she has to return to Denver area. Additional request to help with car repairs as her car is not working and in the shop - DHS can help with a rental car for a few weeks but will need her car to get kiddos to/from services, school, doctors, etc.

Tyler: We can take care of the $200 gift card or cash, and I have a referral for car repair for a gentleman in my men's group that likes to help out in situations like this - can you provide more information on the specific repairs needed and what make/model/year of vehicle it is so I can discuss this with him? Please let us know how to get the cash/card into her hands. Thanks! Tyler
