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.

This family just experienced a car accident that totaled the family's only mode of transportation. Unfortunately, the mothers insurance would only cover a rental car for a couple of days. Now, she is having to pay for a rental car out-of-pocket which is causing extreme financial stress. Mother is a single mother of 3 kids, 10-year-old, 6-year-old, and 6-year-old, and only makes around $2,200 a month which is considered low income. Her rent is $1,100 which takes most of her budget. Her student's have had difficulty getting to school on time since the accident because she cannot afford the rental car every week. Without a car, it takes the family about 40 minutes each day to walk to-and-from school, and Mother is unable to get to work to provide for her family. The mother is requesting a used car or cash to help with a down payment on a car. This mom would be very thankful for any support as getting this critical need met will ultimately provide some stability for her and all her children in this difficult time.
We have a family who was homeless at one time. They have stable housing now but struggle to keep up with daily living needs especially clothes for their growing three daughters. They are looking for new school clothes for the students so they can go to school with confidence. A gift card to Target or Walmart of any amount would be great.
A single mother of two children who was previously homeless, has unfortunately become unemployed and is trying to avoid getting evicted. She is struggling to find a new job in time to pay the back rent. This assistance would help her pay rent and avoid eviction. The student would have safe place to live and function while in high school.

A single mother urgently and kindly requests $800 for her security deposit to rent a studio room for her family of four children. Ages are 7, 6, 3, and 1. Her monthly rent is $800, which she has accumulated over the last two weeks by cleaning homes. MVUSD has provided her and family with temporary housing at a local hotel for 10 nights, which will end on Friday 10/27. This monetary aid will ensure she gains the keys to her studio room so her children have a roof over their heads.
