The Jackson County Children's Division: Investigations Office is in dire need of a refrigerator. Our team has recently greatly increased in size and our current refrigerator no longer supports the team as we've outgrown it. With this fridge, we would be able to nourish and keep the protectors of our county's children fed. With your help, we can keep this group of hardworking heroes moving sharply and making accurate judgements when considering the safety of our youth-- anything would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

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.

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.
