There are two kids in the home and mom is expecting but having a difficult pregnancy. As she is of advance age she is struggling with high blood pressure brought on by her pregnancy. She is unable to work full days and medical team is encouraging bed rest. She shared that she is overwhelmed and terrified thinking about having to take an extended maternity leave without pay and having looming bill over the families head. In applying for LIHEAP they instructed her to wait until receiving a disconnect notice from the energy company but then was later denied and now is left without a means to pay.

This mother had her child placed out of her home but has since done everything that she needed to do to regain placement. The mother has been working hard on her mental health and has been able to identify a few things that would help her get her selfcare in and her child to have his needs meet as well. The winter months are going to be rough on her due to her not getting all the hours she was promised at her job. She also lost a lot of money when she was out on medical leave for a broken foot. She could use a planner to stay organized, a mini trampoline to burn energy and a hot wheels track to keep her son occupied in positive activities. Thank you!

The family in need currently has 4 children placed. Each child has been placed in the home for over a year. This family is willing to accept two additional children. One of which is a sibling to one of the children already in the home. Another is a 15 y/o child who was abandoned by her mother. She's eager to attend school as she's been homeschooled since kindergarten. In order for the child to attend school she has to reside in a home/district. This placement provider welcomes both children with open arms but is unable to provide a living space until additional bedding is in place. Both children need placement and stability ASAP; this home would be a great fit for each of the children. Please consider. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

There is a family who is facing shut off of their utilities and risk falling behind on their mortgage payment due to owing back money on their past bills on their utilities. They were trying to supply diapers and food for their kids without having them realize the situation they were in. They did not want especially their eldest child to see they were struggling and wanted to have some normalcy in the home. The breadwinner of the family, the father, lost his job at Watersee, and he was laid off due to a bankruptcy and he was left to figure things out for the sake of his kids. With the kids going back to school, they had to get some help from their parents to buy some supplies for the kids. The father had an interview yesterday for a new job, and he has a few lined up this week that he is hoping he can get so he can start working as soon as possible. He worries he will not get a paycheck in time to pay before they get cut off and then he will have fees to turn them back on that he cannot afford. He wants so hard to provide for his family and even felt shameful asking for help, but he said it has gotten to a point where he had nowhere else to turn to. These parents are working tirelessly to make ends meet for their children they are hoping to start trial home visits soon and stress the importance of having the basics for their kids. This family risks having their utilities shut off and does not want his kids to see his mom and dad struggling.
