Normal Request
Parent is in need of a Velcro swaddle for a newborn. The mother is a single mom and overwhelmed with the childs medical needs and post partum. Mother is having a difficult time swaddling infant the traditional way with a blanket. There are multiple brands of velcro swaddles ranging in price. This sounds like a small thing but would significantly impact the mother's day to day to be able to adequately swaddle the baby to ensure better and safer sleep.

High Urgency Request
I am working with a family who is in need of assistance with cleaning their home. The father works outside of the home to provide, and the mother stays at home, but without many resources to aid her in keeping a clean home. I am requesting that some volunteers come to her home, with cleaning supplies, to help her clean the house. She does not have much clutter, but needs deep cleaning. The family has 5 children, and bunk beds would also be a wonderful help to the family, as all of the children are currently sleeping on the floor on makeshift mattresses.

Mom and her two kids are living in a home where the roof has been leaking. This has caused water damage to both children's beds. The roof has since been repaired but the beds still smell of mildew and are creating mold. The dryer in the home also stopped working which has caused issues in drying things due to the water damage.

Critical Request
This family currently lives in public housing. They consist of an engaged couple, their 2 sons who are around 12 & 10 years old, and a newborn baby daughter. They are attending therapy and both are employed. Due to some financial constraints and having just given birth to a newborn, they have been unable to afford cleaning supplies for their home. As a result, the condition of the home has gotten to the point where the children could be potentially at risk. They are in need of a mop and other cleaning supplies as well as relational support. If anyone is able to help provide some of these items, that will help this family keep the condition of their home stable enough for the children to remain. Given the urgency of this need, if someone is able to respond to help BEFORE 3pm, it would be much appreciated. However, any help given will greatly support this family!

I am working with a young mother, who has just gotten her first apartment with her two young children. She is not currently employed, due to having a very young child at home. She is in need of some living room furniture such as a sofa, chair, and some rugs for the floors. Her young child is beginning to crawl, and the floors are all wooden through the home. Any living items that are able to be provided would be much appreciated by the mother, as she does not have the funds to obtain the items on her own. She has bare necessities in her apartment.

I am currently working with a mother who has been able to find an apartment for herself and, ultimately, her child in Roanoke, VA where she has greater access to resources and family support. She has worked with the agency to reach her goal of having her own housing and is in need of your support to make it a home! Updated on September 29, 2023 by an Agency Worker
The family has been able to secure a couch for the living area, but are still in need of a twin bed for the child. They are also trying to find a kitchen table.

This family consists of a single mother who lives in public housing with her 10-year-old son who is struggling to make ends meet. She has resorted to braiding hair on the side to earn extra funds. One thing she really needs right now is size 14 clothes for her fast-growing son, especially jeans. He already struggles with social anxiety, so I know that some new clothes may really boost his self-esteem and give this mother some peace of mind. Thank you in advance to anyone who is able to help meet this need!

This family consists of a grandmother who still has a 16-year-old son living with her (her youngest out of 5 children), and 2 grandchildren who frequently stay with her as well. Things lately have been a struggle as she has had to do everything on her own. One thing that would really help her out is receiving a mattress that can accommodate her as she ages, and that can fit a toddler with her as well on the nights that she needs to care for him. If anyone can help with this it would be much appreciated as providing this resource would help strengthen this family.

High Urgency Request
A grandmother is currently caring for her 4 grandchildren. 2 of which are children and 2 of which are young adults. This grandmother has been experiencing significant health concerns that have caused her to be unable to work. She has been caring for her grandchildren, one of which has special needs, and is doing all that she can to make ends meet. This grandmother has been taking steps to help herself and has applied for different types of assistance to lower her bills and uses any income she does receive to make payments. Along with needing assistance with her bills, the family is in dire need of various toiletries and cleaning supplies. This is truly a case where if any family needed the assistance to prevent this situation from becoming a neglect concern, they would need it. Children need to be able to bathe, and live comfortably. At no fault of their own and at no fault of this grandmother, they are making efforts to combat their current financial situation. Any amount and any help could make the difference in children being able to remain in this home with the family that they know and love. Updated on October 02, 2023 by an Agency Worker
The family has been able to make a large payment towards the outstanding balance on bills. The family now only owes $690 for the outstanding water bill. None of the other personal care/hygiene have been supplied yet either.

I am currently working with a family where the mother is working and going to school and the household is dependent on her finances. There is a father involved, however, the mother is trying to save money to be able to move out and care for the child separately. The mother is currently saving money to complete training to become a Registered Behavioral Technician and would benefit from some financial help to pay this class. She would need $100. The mother would also benefit in developing so appropriate supports in the area for her and her son. Updated on September 18, 2023 by an Agency Worker
Just submitting an update because this financial need is still needed! It would be a great support for this mom and her son to be able to get this certification.
