Mother is a single mother due to father getting deported about 5 years ago. Mother is unable to receive any government assistance due to both children being undocumented. She has little to no family support and only has an maternal great aunt who helps her in the afternoons with caring for youngest child. Mother works Tuesday-Friday from 3:00pm-9:00pm across the street from the home due to needing to also be close by due to maternal great aunt being elderly. Mother does not have a working refrigerator and is using a mini one to store all her food, she is unable to purchase anything due to her very limited income. Currently they are unable to store much in the fridge due to it being extremely small. Mother is also struggling with buying groceries and on occasions goes to food banks to obtain food.

The family is in need of a window guard that will guard a window that is almost 71 inches wide. Mother is the sole provider of the family. Father is unemployed due to health issues. The family is having financial difficulties and is in need of help to obtain the requested item. The family came to the attention of DCFS as a result of the child falling out of the window and the family’s prior history with the DCFS. Thankfully the child did not sustain critical injuries as a result of the fall, but the family needs to ensure that it does not happen again. The parents have been very compliant and have been meeting the case plan goals. During my work with parents I have identified the following strengths: resiliency, care for the safety of the child, and are communicative and compliant. Parents’ goal is to keep their child safe. The requested item is necessary to ensure the child’s safety in the home and to prevent the child from having another accident. We have explored other DFCS options for funding, but it is requested through Care Portal because unfortunately DCFS does not provide this item and the funding request for such items will take a long time to fulfill. The estimated cost of the need/s being requested is $160 +tax. Please refer to the following link for a full description of the item and its pricing: (Amazon link).

We have a 5th grader and parent in need of support, the single parent is the sole provider and working in retail with not many hours of work available to her. They rent a room but will need to move out very soon. The owners of the house where she rents a room have divorced and now per court orders must sell the house. This parent could use support with a money card to provide basic needs for the 5th grader. Not knowing where they will go next she wants to provide a jacket and shoes along with other clothes to keep this child warm. She also could use financial support to provide healthy food to keep child and mother well. A gift card for Walmart would give them assistance with clothing and food at one location. Thank you for any support that can be given to this family in their time of need.

I am currently working with a single mother of six children. Family went through a rapid relocation and were only able to retrieve clothing items and small personal necessities from previous home. Mother recently received placement into a new home, but unfortunately due to rapid changes mother does not have funds to purchase twin beds for her children. Parent is in need of four twin beds and a twin bunk bed. Due to current status, children sleep on an inflatable mattress on the floor. Mother hopes to receive beds during the holidays to bring a sense of joy into her children's life's after these difficult times. Mother is working on utilities and additional furniture for their house. Receiving four twin beds and bunk bed would help mother with additional support in stability. The help will provide another level of comfort and support for the mother and family. Receiving beds will assist family to have a safe and warm bed during these cold nights and will help the house feel like a home to them. Thank you in advance for your consideration in supporting this family, any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Working with a parent who is part of the DCFS workload, the worker reached out for a bit of assistance with his mother's situation. We helped create a plan that ensured the mother/minor's safety and well-being. The family is currently homeless and living in their car. Mother has stage two cancer and custody of her children. DCFS is currently in the process of securing stable housing for the mother. However, it will be two more weeks before the family can move into their home. As a result, the worker reached out for assistance in any way she needed, such as paying for a hotel room. DCFS is able to provided coverage for a week. And we are wondering if someone might be able to cover the second week which would be 11/28/2023 through 12/05/2023. The cost is $99 per night, a total cost of $693 for 7 nights. She is currently at the Bellflower.

This family has been participating in the SHIELDS Family Preservation program since September 2023. The mother of two small children are requesting assistance with the purchase of a highchair, a walker, and a large toilet training seat. The 10-month-old infant was born prematurely, so he is developmentally delayed. A highchair would benefit him in being able to sit and learn how to feed himself. Additionally, a walker would benefit the infant in being able to strengthen his leg muscles, as he prepares to learn how to walk. Lastly, a large toilet training seat is being requested for the 2-year-old toddler, as she is overweight and unable to fit in a standard toilet training seat.

We are asking for support for a mother who will be reunifying with her two twin infants. Mother is in need of a crib and mattress. Mother is moving into transitional housing and will stay there for at least the next 6-months. The mother has made excellent progress in her case plan and having the appropriate furniture to care for the child is a key for her to reunify. Mother has been able to acquire one crib and mattress, but she needs another one since she has twins.

A child that is five has been reunified with his father. He and the father sleep in the same room. The father is currently rebuilding his life as he now sleeps in a twin bed. The family is requesting a toddler bed and mattress for the youth so he and the father can sleep comfortably.
The client is a single mother who recently ended her relationship with the father due to ongoing domestic violence. The mother is strong a resilient. To continue to ensure her child's safety, the mother would like to purchase cameras to place in her window to provide further surveillance for her home until she can move to a new apartment, however, she currently does not have the funds for the expense. As such, I am requesting Target/Walmart/Amazon gift cards to assist the mother with the cost of cameras.

This is a CRITICAL situation. I have a family who is being evicted from their home today, November 21, 2023. The mother reported receiving an eviction notice. The mother informed the landlord of mold in the home and refused to pay the rent because the landlord has not repaired the mold in the home. The mother and her two children are currently moving out of the home. The family has no available supports to provide shelter. I have referred the family to Bringing Families Home but this may take some time. Wraparound team is unable to provide Emergency shelter because they also need time to put in the referral. Assisting with emergency shelter until she can receive assistance is crucial to the children’s safety and wellbeing to ensure they have a roof over their heads and a warm place to sleep, especially considering the drop in temperature. One of the children has mental health issues, which can be exacerbated with this current instability. Any help is greatly appreciated. Please advise.

Good afternoon, I am the Case Manager of a student who is in current need of a new bed frame, and a mattress. The mother's finances are currently restricted, and the child reached out to me, in an attempt to alleviate the mothers' financial strain. The child we service is receiving mental health services. The child has excelled academically over the course of the academic year, but the disturbance in her sleep is causing a decrease in her academic standing. The child cannot make use of her current bed any longer, hence it is broken. The family's financial restrain has made it difficult to purchase a new bedframe, and a mattress for the child. I have spoken to the family and determined that the child will benefit from having a place other than her broken bed obtain adequate rest. Due to the clients size, she needs a bigger bed, in her case a queen bed. The child and her mother are consistent with reaching out for support and our organization is devoted to helping her and her family reach their overall gals. I have exhausted all other resource portals. We thank you in advance for your assistance, it would be extremely appreciated.

Mother was a foster youth as a child. Mother now has 3 children; however, due to domestic violence and the parents being unable to follow court orders mother was unable to remain custody of her children. Since then, mother has worked tirelessly to learn, grow and gain insight about the circumstances which led her to DCFS involvement. Mother has completely turned around her focus on learning from this experience and has completed the court ordered programs. The only barrier at this time to Mother’s reunification is to secure housing for herself and the children, which she has now successfully completed. Now mother is in need of support for the purchase of a refrigerator and a dining table for the home. Once she has secured all utilities and appliances, DCFS can walk on a request to reunify the children with Mother.
