Help Prevent a Child From Entering Foster Care

Normal Request
A young expectant mother is due in October 2021 and is currently homeless in the Denver area. She is struggling to find long term housing because of her criminal history and substance abuse struggles. She is struggling to get to her doctor's appointments and get other needs met as she does not have a stable place to live. We are hoping we can get her a month at a long term stay hotel with a kitchen she can cook in and a stable location so she can get connected to other local resources in order to be able to make decisions about her parenting plan and not have the child go into foster care. We anticipate a month at an extended stay to be about $1,800, but any amount will help her maintain some stability. For 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 "N." Please pray for N as we help her get connected to resources for substance abuse, struggles with severe depression, and stability in housing.

I have a kinship provider currently caring for a young relative due to the mother’s history of substance use and domestic violence. Mom is incarcerated and has relinquished her parental rights. Yet dad, is currently involved, attending virtual visitation due to him living out of State, and both parent/child are hoping to reunify down the road. A gracious community member has already donated the router for the kin-family to have, but are still in need of an inexpensive modem - such as the one listed below. Can you help with this request?

We are requesting support for this baby boy who was placed with his maternal grandparents after concerns of substance use were found while he was living with his mother. Both grandparents didn’t hesitate to take him in. However, both grandparents have recently had cancer, the grandpa in remission, while the grandmother is still going to treatments. They are very loving and supportive, however, unable to work due to their physical health and age. They have asked for support with baby clothing for the boys, size 12-18. Any and all help, whether physical clothing or gift cards for clothing would be greatly appreciated by this family. Thank you!

We are requesting support for Two teens girls (15 & 17) which were placed with family friends’ after being removed from their grandmothers home. With allegations of sexual assault at their previous home these young ladies will stay with the family friends. The girls' parents continue to struggle with substance use, making it impossible for the girls to live with them and feel safe. The girls have experienced many removals throughout most of their life and are back with these family friends. The family friends are an amazing couple that has a lot of love for these teens but as we know, teens are expensive. With school starting soon, the girls need new clothing/shoes/school supplies as well as feminine hygiene products. Any and all visa gift cards would be appreciated so these girls can go to school with a little less to worry about. Thank you!

We are requesting help for these children because their mother was hospitalized due to domestic violence in the home. Her two baby girls were placed with their great-grandmother. Due to the Domestic Violence, the children will continue living with great-grandma as their mother’s home is not safe to return to. Great-grandma is not able to work due to her own condition and aging. She is in need of help with a stroller(preferably a light one) for the 1 year old baby girl, a car seat (20lbs), and a training potty. For the older girl who is 10, she’d love a gift card for new clothing/shoes as she is starting school soon and needs fall clothing (size 10-12). This family would greatly appreciate any and all help!

Amanda: Hi, I have a used umbrella stroller that's in really good shape that I can donate. Great for ages 1-3. (https://www.amazon.com/Summer-Infant-Lite-Convenience-Stroller/dp/B00O20OCVC). I may not have time in the near future to get it up to Aurora, so I might need someone to pick it up or meet me somewhere halfway.

We are requesting help with two girls were placed with a family friend who is a young and in her early 20s. This weekend they discovered a bedbug infestation in the girls’ room, they were embarrassed and didn’t want to tell anyone about it. Due to the severity of the infestation, they had to throw away the girls’ mattresses completely. The provider is currently unemployed due to COVID and would appreciate any help with getting the girls’ new mattresses to sleep on. We are in need of two twin mattresses and frames.

Elissa: Would the family be interested in a bunk bed? I have a family who has a like-new one they don't need anymore. There are no mattresses and it would need to be picked up as the current owner has no way to transport. Let me know if you'd be interested!

We are working with a young lady in foster care who is graduating high school and we would like to be able to provide her with a graduation gift of any kind. We are asking you to get creative and consider what a teenager would want for high school graduation. This youth does not know we are seeking a gift for her...it's a surprise! We would like for this gift to be delivered/shipped to our office in Aurora. Please include a card with your name and a way to contact you (email or address) so we can also teach her how to show her gratitude with a thank you card. This graduates birth parents rights were terminated when she was a little older. She was adopted and she really struggled there. This was a failed adoption and she was placed with a few different relatives that did not work out. She began smoking to cope with her mental health and dropped out of high school briefly. She did get accepted to a cosmetology school but decided to delay that and go back to school. Even after falling behind a little after being placed in a foster home, she has caught up and is graduating on time. She will be attending the cosmetology school in June. She did all of this while working two jobs. She will be working on getting her own housing in June through a housing voucher.

This graduates birth parents rights were terminated when she was 2yo. She was considered “failure to thrive” when she was placed into foster care. She was adopted by her foster family but due to her own mental health and that of her adoptive mother, this disrupted resulting in another termination of parental rights. She has been in a foster home where she was doing really well and we had a relative option for placement which we then pursued. She went there and that also failed. She has since been back in the foster home that she left, she didn’t lose any traction in school, she has maintained her grades, she just got accepted in to CU Denver and is going the medical track. When she was at the relative’s home, they told her they did not think she would get in. Since then she has been using that as motivation and is rocking it.

This graduate has been in multiple placements since she was about 14. She is an awesome young woman who is smart, tells you how it is, and has the biggest heart! She is thinking about going to college but is unsure of what she would like to major in. Her Dad has been incarcerated a majority of her life and she just started to reconnect with her Mom. She is an extremely resilient kid, who has been through a lot in her life, but she is so excited to finish high school and is planning on emancipating when she turns 18.
