High Urgency Need
We've been helping a young, single Mom with a 1 years old and an 18 years old. She also has been fighting a custody battle for her two elementary school age kiddos, costing her a lot of money. She is struggling to pay bills, then her and her son's cars were towed last week. They were able to get the cars back, but not without spending the remaining money she had. They need to get vehicles registered and titled immediately. They moved here earlier this year from out of state. The 1 year old is too big for his baby carrier/ car seat. Here is a link to a car seat allowing him to rear face still for awhile and then he can use forward facing until he is 65lbs. This one or something similar: Any amount of financial contribution would be helpful. I put in several categories to choose from. We'd appreciate your prayers for this family as they pull out of this difficult situation.

Single Mother is returning to esthetician school in October, after extend time off due to her son’s health. Her son is healthy again and just started elementary school this year. Her school is very strict about absences and after already taking extended time off, she’s really worried about having to miss class if her son has a covid exposure and has to miss school. Client is a single mom and does not have anyone else that could help care for him. We’re hoping to find her someone that could help care for her son, in the event he has to miss school. Her son is six years old. Client's classes are Tuesday-Friday. Client has a car and could drive him somewhere for child care. Any resources for free child care in the area would be helpful.

Single mother and two children ages 7 and 9 are struggling with homelessness. They have not had any stable home for over two years. They did find a temporary place recently to allow them time to work with DHS and work towards stability. They were suddenly kicked out of the home today following physical altercation by the homeowner towards the mother. They have only their vehicle and some clothing and have no further place to go. The family is continuing to work towards a longer-term plan but in need of short term help. They have reached out to shelters and there is no openings for the family. Looking for help to get them into a hotel short term for the next week to allow the children to continue in school and the mom to continue working towards a sustainable plan.

I have a biological father who is currently working full time but living out of his car. Dad has visitation with his daughter every weekend and is desperately trying to pay off his debts and get into an apartment but he is working on paying off $2200 owed to an apartment complex which is making finding housing more difficult. Biofather could use assistance with gas/food cards and maybe a week/or two long stay at a hotel.

An 11-year-old girl and 10 year old boy have never been able to go swimming as they were never taught how. They have longed for swimming lessons for years but unfortunately the mother has been unable to afford or facilitate lessons. These two siblings are hoping to learn so they can go swim with friends next summer - being the odd ones out as has become the norm for them in this regard. The opportunity to learn how to swim would be a HUGE extracurricular activity for them as they do not have much of a social life outside of school. Their current CASA is willing and able to transport both siblings to swimming lessons if we are able to raise funds for them to attend fall lessons together. Your support and consideration is greatly appreciated!

Normal Request
A kinship family has taken in two teenage children (boy and girl) on a voluntary basis to help out until they can return to their mother's care. The kinship family has four biological teenagers at home. The children placed with them need clothing for school. They have purchased a few items of clothing from Goodwill and Clothing banks, but would like for the youths to be able to get other new clothes as well. The teenage boy is driving approximately 28 miles round trip each day to school. He worked during the summer to purchase a car, and the insurance cost is approximately $2000 for a six month premium. The family could use help with paying for his insurance. The biological mother would like to help but she is not currently employed. The family could also use assistance with gas and clothing gifts cards. Kohl's would be a wonderful choice for the girl!

I am working with a young single mother of 5 children (ages 10- almost 1 year) who moved to Colorado about a year ago. It is a single mother that is unemployed and looking for work. The family could really use a couch, futon with a bunk bed on top, diapers for the 8 month old and 2 year, 1 set of full bed sheets and 3 sets of twin sheets, and locks for the kitchen cabinets to prevent the little ones crawling into them. Any of this would be helpful so thank you so much! I know she will really appreciate the help.

Kelli: We have tons of kids clothing in the blessing room at The Rock Church. She can come "shop" and take whatever she finds that works to get her started! It is open Saturday from 9-11 during the food distribution or she can call and set a time to come in if that doesn't work. I'll be there Sunday 9:45 - 1:45 if that works for her. She can also get groceries on Saturday if she would like!!
