The mother entered into a juvenile deprived case with her current child and has done exceptionally well, turning her life around and her case is about to close. There was domestic violence and the mother filed for and received a protective order from the father so there is not any contact with him at this time. The mother found out she is expecting and it is a high risk pregnancy. The mother is in need of baby items including a car seat and infant clothing, diapers, blankets and any other items associated with an infant because she is unable to work at this time. The mother's DHS case will be closing in a week so she will not have any of the services when the baby is due in September. If these needs are met, it would take the stress off the mother and she can focus on taking care of her current child and prepare for the new one. Mother is expecting a girl but does not care for pink, prefers purple and yellow for a girl.
The mother's newborn was placed into custody and the mother is homeless with no phone and no means of being able to stay in touch with her case worker, service providers, or attorney once she is released from the hospital to maintain services and be able to have contact for arranging family time with the newborn during the case.

Hello there. I am reaching out for assistance for a family on my caseload. There is a single mother of three who is working as many hours as her job will allow in order to make ends meet for her family. She and her children are currently in trial reunification and she has been doing everything she can do provide for them and ensure that they don’t go without anything. However, she is struggling a bit financially. She could use some help with the following: a gas card, groceries, and daycare application fees for her three children. Any contribution you may be able to make towards these needs would be immensely appreciated! Thank you so much for your time and consideration!

A MOTHER IS NEEDING HELP WITH FURNITURE!
There is a mother that has two children (1 and 5 years old). Mom just got a house for herself and her children. Mom is needing some things in order to move into the home. Mom has a toddler mattress for one of her children, but she is needing help with getting a toddler bed frame. Mom is also needing a new bed and bedframe for herself as hers broke. Mom stated she is willing to sleep on an air mattress in the meantime if she is unable to get a bed at the moment. The family is also needing a refrigerator, as the home did not come with one. Mom is not able to get a job right now, due to her attending services and college classes. Mom has been very engaging in all her services. Mom has reached out to other resources, but has had no luck in finding any of the items listed.

Parents need your help paying the summer camp fee of $675 in order to provide a positive peer opportunity for their 14 year old son with other disabled children. Their son is non-verbal, autistic and an epileptic. One of the parents’ plans to attend this camp with their son. This young boy needs and deserves lots of positive interaction with peers in a supervised and safe atmosphere so he can experience new things available at this camp. By covering even a portion of the camp fee, you will be making a huge difference in this family’s life. This boy will be able to zip line through the woods, jump off a diving board amidst a cheering crowd and create a lifelong relationship with a camp friend among many other camp activities.
The Family and Child Welfare thank you for considering assisting with this fee. Again, any donation amount will go to pay for this young boy’s camp fee.

I have a mom who got behind on the rent when she had to take off work to have a baby. She's been able to get almost all the way caught up but is still a little short. With her rent caught up, we'll feel more secure in closing her case, knowing she has a safe place for her children to stay.

Parents of 7 children need our community’s assistance with beds, bedding and clothing storage/organization. They also need someone to haul the furniture to their home as they navigate life with a large family on a low income.
Both parents work outside the home however are not able to make ends meet without assistance. The children are amazing individuals with personalities as big as the day is long. They have been taught manners and social graces and are a joy to work alongside as we reunite them with their parents. The children’s ages range from newborn to 11 years of age (Boys’ ages are 11, 9, 6 and newborn; Girls’ ages are 5, 2 and 1.)
They currently are in need of a toddler bed for their 5 year old daughter and the parents need a queen size bed and bed frame.
They have no bedding for the beds, so queen, twin and toddler bed size bedding such as sheets, blankets and pillows are also needed. Plain colors for the bedding would be best instead of themed items. The 3 boys each have twin sized beds (bunk beds and a twin bed).
If someone is able to assist with moving the beds to their home that is also a great need to be filled.
This need can be met partially but selecting one item below. Every little bit helps a lot!!!
Filling this need will greatly reduce the stress and anxiety of both parents as they work together to finish their treatment plans in order to keep their family together in their home. The parents and child welfare greatly appreciate your help!!!
