Our older youth was in florida when she was pulled over for driving without headlights on, and driving without a license. She was driving to pick up her 6 month old daughter from the person who was watching her. This youth has been trying to work and get the money to pay for the tickets but the cost of having her daughter, and getting her the items that she needs comes first. The tickets are $113 and $166. we are desperately trying to help her pay this so that she does not get a warrant issued for not paying the fines. She has been an amazing mother to her daughter, and this has been a stressful situation for her.

This boy has been in care since he was 17 months old, and he will be turning 5 in August. He will be starting kindergarten in the fall, as his twin brother's needs can be better accommodated by the school district than by their preschool. His occupational therapist has recommended a summer therapy group for kindergarten readiness, with focus on social interactions, visual motor, fine motor, gross motor, and cognitive activities. This group is also being recommended for his twin brother, which has been submitted separately.

The mother of two of the children on my case load went down on her income when the boys were removed from her home. They had recently been placed with her for trial home visit for over 6 months. She previously received their SSI payments. She is now at risk of losing her housing if she is not able to continue to pay her rent. We are looking at placing the boys back in the home while her and her boyfriend work through some services. The boyfriend recently got a job and is hopeful to start contributing to the house hold expenses. She is needing help for her June rent. Her rent total is 950.
We have a family who came into care, set of 4 siblings who are being split between two placements. The youngest two, aged 3 and 7, are in dire need of a bed, frame, and possible sheets/pillow. The placement is a family member who also has her own children and went from feeding 5 mouths to 7 and she is struggling financially and also left her job to care for the 3-year-old full time. She is in need of beds for both children as she just doesn't have the extra. If we can get a trundle bed, that would be preferred she said but will take what is given to help. These kids have been through a lot already and we are just trying to ease the stress and help maintain their placement.
