This family has faced eviction recently but has been reunified with their mother. The mother is in need of two toddler beds with mattresses for her small children as they currently do not have any. The family has recently moved into their new home but because of the recent eviction they lost most of their basic household items like the childrens beds. We want the children to sleep comfortably at night in their own beds and have a fresh start to their new life with their mother.
A young single mother, 24, of two boys 3 and 5 years old, is having difficulty managing the rent and electric of the residence. Rent is over $1,000 and the light bill has continued to be overwhelming even while being on payment plans. Currently the bill is $818.00, and no more extensions will be given to the family. Mother is employed and has some help from her mom though this is not a consistent assistance. Mother makes sure that children have all their needs even if that means she goes without. Monies have been tied up on bills for the past few months and mom is just needing some help to get things back in a manageable place of finances.

A single other of four kids has been without a car now for quite some time. Her and her 18 y/o walk to work to pay the bills but she has been struggling with finding ways to get her younger kids to the doctor... as her youngest son has a big doctor appointment coming up soon and the appointment was made 2 years ago so there rescheduling isn't an option. Unfortunately , this family went through some domestic violence a few months ago with the baby's father and since him being kicked out and removed from the family and home, they have been struggling for quite sometime trying to get their feet back on the ground. They are such a loving and caring family and the mother does everything she can to provide for her kids, transportation has been her downfall recently... I believe an Uber or Lyft gift card for this family would be extremely beneficial, as the mother and her youngest are needing to drive to this appointment at USF soon! She would also be able to make a successful trip to the store to get some gifts for the kids for christmas, as it is hard for her to walk and carry bags home...

This request is for a caregiver that took in twin teenagers after their guardian passed away. The caregiver has 4 children of her own and resides in a 3-bedroom home. Due to the number of children in the home, they would benefit greatly from a bunk bed system containing 3 twin beds for space and the safety of the children. She was able to purchase one set for the "girls" room, but could use assistance for a set for the "boys" room as 6 new beds is a large financial burden.

A single mother with 7 children was put into a rough situaiton as of last Sunday. She is a teacher and some of her children attend the school she teaches at and the older kids are homeschooled. Last Sunday, she was unfortunately kicked out of her home due to her 12 y/o son damaging the property and having the cops called one too many times. They have been living in a hotel as of the weekend before thanksgiving. The family did have to spend thanksgiving in a hotel and was not able to have a thanksgiving meal due to the hotel not even having a kitchen and her not having the funds to take them out... The mother does not own a car either due to a car accident she was in earlier this year. When they lived in their home, her coworker/friend would pick them up and drop them off everyday because their home was in the route the friend took. the mother was planning on getting a car for her tax return and was going to continue getting rides until then, but now since she is in a hotel that is way further away, the friend is no longer able to pick them up. The mother has been struggling this week. She pays for hotels a week or two at a time because the rates are cheaper, but it leaves her with pretty much nothing left to get to and from the school. Her goal is moving to a closer hotel soon but that won't start till next week and as of right now a round trip is $40 an Uber a day... The family would greatly benefit from an Uber giftcard this week. she can get rides from her friend next wee
Please provide the Uber gift card for 150.

This young teen foster child was reunified with her biological family, however she never has a chance to pack up all of her belongings. Especially as the weather gets colder she is in need of some more of her clothes. The foster home and biological family have tried to coordinate a time to meet up, however the family lives several hours away. Schedules and distance have prevented them from being able to get her belongings to her. This request is for financial assistance to help cover the cost of shipping for this single foster mom so that she can send some of the needed clothing and some of the child's most cherished items to her. We are very grateful for any assistance that can be provided!
