Help improve a child's safety/well-being

Normal Request
I am working with a homeless student who is currently living in Hillcrest's Young Adult Transitional Housing Program. Thanks to Hillcrest's help, he has taken driver's ed and is preparing to take his test to obtain his driver's license, something he would not have been able to do without their support as the only living adult he has remaining in his life is incarcerated. He is a very responsible young man and has been working very hard to save his money, but he is having trouble finding an affordable used car to purchase. He also needs it to be sold by someone willing to sell to a 17 year old, as he does not turn 18 until this summer. He is looking for a reliable vehicle within the $2000-$3500 range. So, we are asking if there anyone out there who might have a good vehicle that fits this description that would be willing to let him take a look? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Grandma has placement of three of her grandsons from Missouri foster care, ages 16, 13, and 12. A pipe in her front yard burst and needed to be replaced. She then was hit with another large bill in December when she needed to fill her propane tank to heat the house. Grandma is needing financial assistance to help with these unexpected bills. This would allow her to avoid going deeper into debt and ensure the family will have heat.

We are currently working with an 8 year old child who is diagnosed with several mental health concerns. She has hallucinations and struggles with feeling safe in any environment. The family is very caring and working with her to help her in every possible way. She also has mental health services and treatment. While working with the family, we were able to identify 3 tools they could use to help the child feel safer. Both parents are working but with normal expenses and extra expenses for the child, they are living paycheck to paycheck. I am asking for help to purchase these needed items. I've listed the items that can be purchased through Amazon by any donor or I will happily order these with any donations received. Thank you for considering this request and for all of your support for our families and workers!! Child needs a light switch for the hallway in her home. She is afraid of the dark and being alone. The family rents and cannot make any renovations so we found a light switch that links to the actual light and doesn't require wiring: ($19.99 and tax). Child needs a dimmable night light for her bedroom and bathroom so that she can control the amount of light in her room but have a reliable light during the night: ($17.99 and tax) Child needs a camera in her room to record her activity at night for her therapist and psychiatrist: ($29.99 and tax)

A young name is in need of a new futon. He has been offered a bed, but he prefers a futon for when he has friends over. The one that he currently has is broken. He is wanting one that is more comfortable like a bed as well. Getting this futon will allow for him to not only get a good night's rest, but it will also allow for him to socialize with his friends.

Help Reunify a Bio Family

Normal Request
A mother is very close to reunifying with her children; she just needs one more bed! She would like a daybed or a bed that works as both a couch and a bed since she will be sleeping in the living room to make space for her children. She would also like a Ring doorbell as a safety precaution to ensure the perpetrator of the children's abuse does not come to the home and to help the children feel more safe.

Critical Need
A single mom with an 8 year-old boy and 9 year-old girl coming out of homelessness after losing disability benefits and are in major need of funding for utility bills. Dad is an addict and not in the picture and uncle on dad's side is helping them get stable. They are staying in an empty house owned by a relative of the uncle and he is paying their rent for now but they are living with no furniture, water or electricity. There are past due balances and activation fees on the electric and water that need to be paid in order for them to be turned on, totaling almost $1500, but any amount helps! We are hoping the CarePortal community can contribute some funds to help get the utilities turned on for this family.

Normal Need
We previously helped this family with light bill from a CarePortal Request (53051) - a single mom of an 8 year-old girl with severe anxiety and seizures, and a 6 year old boy with a variety of medical issues leading to immobility, obesity and developmental delays. Mom works literally around the clock to provide all of the extra care they need, on top of having her own medical issues she is trying to address for the first time in years. Since the original request, we have been getting to know the family and providing additional items as needed. Mom is very sweet, thankful and responsible and it has been a joy to support them. She never wants to ask for help but recently shared that bathing her son at his size is very difficult and taxing for her, and that having a special showered and chair would be a huge help and relieve a lot of the stress around caring for her high-needs son. Additionally, their AC went out over the Summer so we are looking for funding for a window unit that was provided to them. Thank you for any help you can provide!
