Help Make a Foster Care or Kinship Placement
3
Critical Request
This family is kin and is in the process of being certified. They are opening their home to two more children making a total of seven children to care for. This family is struggling to meet the intense demands a certified home goes through and are requesting a little more help to achieve their goal. They are requiring three fire escape ladders for their upstairs bedrooms and a food voucher since the children placed are starting to go over to their home prior to placement. COVID is happening in this area and all of the children are home making it difficult to feed everyone. Please help this family be successful. Thank you.

Mom has requested an artificial tree for Christmas. She said any size works, but I would assume the regular size of 4-6 feet.

4 year old boy in need of items to assist with emotional regulation. "weighted blanket" and/or "weighted buddy" (stuffed animal) "rocking gaming chair" that sits on the floor. (walmart has one called a video rocker for $35) Request for rocking gaming chair instead of rocking chair, due to it being on the floor and does not have pinching parts. I added estimated prices based on searching online. (target, walmart, amazon) I have also seen weighted blankets for kids at Big Lots. Any of these above items are appreciated. The chair would be most beneficial. Thank you.
