I am currently working with a family in which there is a single mother raising a 12 year old male child. The father to the child recently had a massive heart attack and has passed away unexpectedly. The mother has had to take time off from work to take care of things. She has now received a cut off notice on her electric bill. The mother is trying to hold things together for her and her child.

I am working with a single mother of two who is also raising her granddaughter who needs some assistance. This mom is in need of a washer and dryer for her home. The ones that she has have broken. If this mom can get a washer and dryer, it would help her family be able to wash clothes in the home. This mom works nights and gets her sleep during the day, so it is important for her to be able to complete these tasks at home.

After suffering from a traumatic brain injury, this father has struggled with many things including his executive functioning and his anger management. He is actively working on ways to cope with his TBI and still be a good father. However him and his wife have recently spilt and he is now in a new country without many resources.

He is starting from scratch and does not have any furniture. He has shared with me that his biggest needs right now are beds for the children. He has three bedrooms so, he would like one bunk bed and one twin bed.

I began working with a mother this week, and she is a first-time mother. Her baby was born three weeks ago. This mother does have some family in the community, but the father is not involved. She has signed up for benefits from DSS and is very curious to know what resources are available to her to be able to obtain more baby items for her child. She is also curious to know what supports are available in the community and was provided with a list such as healthy families, CHIP etc. She is also having surgery tomorrow and has been in pain for a few weeks. She will be relying on her family to help, but once she gets on her feet, she would like to be able to be more independent and provide for her child. She has asked for help with diapers, wipes and formula. She will be having her WIC appointment this week and will be able to obtain more formula after a month. Baby formula: Enfamil neuro pro Gentlease Diapers: Huggies newborn (2-3 packs) Wipes: Huggies care sensitive

I am working with a family who has recently moved here from France. While the family was in France they were dealing with domestic violence from dad to mom and from dad onto the kids. Since then, the parents have separated, and mom has become the primary caregiver. The family came here from France without any furniture and without most of their belongings. Mom has been working hard to start to rebuild but is struggling to meet the bills even though she is working multiple jobs. Mom shared with me last night that her son's dresser was broken, and he does not have a place to store his clothes. (He also does not have a closet) She also is in need of a second dresser to store addition clothing and items.

This is a family of 6 (3 children age 2-16 years old, and 2 adults). They live in the Austinville area of Carroll County. The family moved into this home about a year ago and the previous tenants left a lot of things in the home that need to be removed such as an old refrigerator and other large items. The family is requesting a dumpster, or persons available with a truck and trailer that will be willing to haul the items to the dump, so that the home can be cleaned and sanitized for the children so that they do not have to be removed and placed in an alternative living arrangement. The quoted price is for a dumpster rental through Bowman Giffith Waste Management.
