High Urgency Request
A 16 year old expectant mother is due with a baby in December 2021 and is currently homeless in the Denver area. She is currently living with her mother in their car and is struggling to stay warm as the nights get colder. We are hoping we can get her a couple weeks at a long term stay hotel as a stable and warm location so she can get connected to other local resources in order to be able to make decisions about her parenting plan and help both the teenage mother and the child not go into foster care. We anticipate a couple of weeks at an extended stay to be about $1,200, but any amount will help her maintain some stability. To donate and receive a tax deductible receipt, you can go to and under program drop down, choose "care fund - pregnancy counseling" - in the notes please state Care Portal Hotel stay client "S."

Normal Request
The family has 3 children under 5 and they are expecting another baby in May. Both parents work but do not make enough to support their family without assistance. They live in a 2 bedroom apartment and ride the bus to get to and from work and appointments. Parents have both overcome addiction and legal troubles to have their children returned to their care. Mom is enrolled in school to become a CAN to help better support her family. Parents have their youngest sleeping in bed with them as he does not have his own. This has caused mom to struggle to get her schoolwork done as she is often tired due to sharing her bed with a toddler and her husband. If their toddler had a bed of his own, mom would be able to sleep better and this would help her to get her schoolwork done and to be more present with her children. Additionally, their toddler has grown out of his current car seat and it is unsafe for him to travel without one. Parents need an appropriately fitting car seat for him so that they can be safe when traveling with him to family therapy weekly. Family therapy is allowing them to successfully reunify as a family and to provide stability and support to parents. Graco Extend2Fit Convertible Car Seat | Ride Rear Facing Longer with Extend2Fit, Redmond: $190. Delta Children Canton Toddler Bed: $85.

During COVID our parenting time program was not allowed to have in-person visits and families were visiting with their children virtually. Over the last several months we have transitioned to having visits in person but due to the cleaning protocols none of our supplies were able to be used during visits- toys, games, etc. More recently we have begun to reintegrate these items for parents to use in their visits with children while at our office. Some of them are looking a little rough. We are seeking a donation of board/card games for families to play with their children of all ages. Today (10/18/21) Amazon has a sale on several games. We are open to gently used or new games and are asking for these items to be shipped/delivered to our Aurora office. These games would be used by several families and bring so much joy and positive interaction during their family time. Below is a list of some ideas but we are open to anything you have or you think would be fun for families. Another need our parenting time team has is for tummy time play mats so babies can play on the floor and strengthen their muscles to create healthy physical development. Clue Hi-ho-cheerio Sleeping Queens Spot it! Rat-a-tat-cat Quirkle Rummikub Yeti in my Spaghetti Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza Memory/ matching games Puzzles (probably less than 100 pieces) some for kids too Go fish Uno Any other card games

We are requesting support for this grandmother of 2 boys, ages 9 and 10, is requesting gift cards for King Soopers in order to help feed the boys and to possibly get a tank of gas or 2. She went on FMLA when the boys first came to her as they had a lot of appointments and needs. She was unable to receive her full pay during that time and is struggling to make ends meet. She is going back to work but could use some help getting back on her feet until she starts getting regular paychecks again. Any increment would be helpful.

Hello! A mom is looking for work, and needs car repairs in order to fix her vehicle and be able to get to job interviews. She has no other transportation, and cares for her 2 children alone. She has the parts, just needs money or assistance with the mechanic. Not sure how much labor will cost, but here is what mom said: "I was told I need all 3 motor mounts replace, both front axles, ball joints & an alignment. I don’t know what else, the price the gave me was 3k +. I have the 3 motor mounts in a box. It is a 2007 Mazda 6i sedan." Any suggestions for a mechanic that can lower the cost or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Place Bridge Academy (PBA) is a refugee school in the Denver Public School district located at 7125 Cherry Creek North Drive, Denver, CO 80224. We have over 850 students in ECE through 8th grade. The school is a designated Newcomer center. Only 15% of our students come to us with English as their primary language. Our students and families come from 50 different countries and speak 65 different languages. Additionally, 96% of our families qualify for free and reduced lunch. We are in the process of making our school lobby more welcoming as such would highly request your assistance in accomplishing our goal. We want to be able to teach our families how to register their children for school while providing a safe and comfortable environment. Being a refugee school, and with the majority of our families qualifying for free and reduced lunch, we do not have a functioning parent body/group that would contribute to funding needs. Consequently, we would appreciate your support in helping us redo our lobby to make our families feel at home, comfortable and welcomed in their children's school. The links below are pictures and cost of the coffee cart and the floor protectors we are requesting.
