Help Preserve a Foster Care Placement

Normal Request
My foster home is requesting a Johnny Jump up for the child placed in her home. She does not have a lot of space in her home, so I jumper would not work well. We think that the Johnny Jump up will help the child build strength, balance and coordination safely and comfortably.

I am working with a family of five children who have been placed into the care of their grandmother. There were several health issues early on, and we have been working to help implement healthy lifestyle changes. The children are participating in soccer and are in need of cleats. We are requesting one pair of cleats for three of the five children.

Normal Request
My Kinship home would love to go bike riding with her son so they can spend some quality time together. (she is his Aunt but he referrers to her as mom). However, she does not have a bike. I'm reaching out to see if I am able to find one for her. I believe being able to go bike riding together may relieve some stress, and will give them something fun to do during this crazy time.

Mother fled an abusive relationship and is now 250 miles away from her abuser. She is court ordered to take the children back to her town of origin to allow the father to have supervised visits with the children. Her abuser had destroyed her vehicle before she fled and now has no way of transporting them back and forth for the court ordered visits. She is looking for a low cost (low monthly payments) vehicle in which to safely transport them from Grand Junction, CO to the front range, through mountainous highways.
