I have been working with a single mother of four children overcoming substance abuse. The mother would appreciate twin beds for a small room which include a mattress, box springs and a bed frame for a 5-year-old girl and a 1 1/2-year-old girl. The mother would be grateful for a food processor that grinds up meat due to 1 year old, twin boys with swallowing issues and developmental delays. A food processor benefits twin boys in a way to eat puree foods that are easier and safer to digest than solid foods and get the nutrition the boys need to grow and thrive. The beds will help the girls focus on a better sleeping routine, individual development, and safe sleep.

Mom is working, the kiddos are healthy, everything is going great! It is time to move from Grandma's to their own apartment but it's pretty empty. This family needs some furniture. A sofa, a chair, dining table and chairs, maybe a TV stand. The little girl has a crib that can be handed down to her baby brother since she's ready for a toddler bed and a dresser to store their clothes. Moving in for Christmas would be the best present they could possible receive. Donations to help make that happen would be very much appreciated; they need a lot, but donations, full or partial, can help make their lives more comfy for the holidays!

Mom and son, 2 yrs, does not have a car and isn't working enough hours to pay for transportation to get to the places needed. Mom had to chose between transportation and rent and chose to pay rent. In preparation for getting custody, mom had paid her rent ahead and saved up to be a month and a half ahead because she knew she wouldn't have day care and would need to apply for assistance so she could go back to work full time. At that time she was working Full Time for Burger King and attending online school. She is now working for Wendy's part time and has gotten her certificate from online schooling.
Mom has been working to improve her life situation and has been a role model, regularly attending 12-step sobriety meetings and is the house president in her Oxford Home. She also was provided a trip to Washington DC for a national Oxford convention paid for by Oxford this last October. She also got her certificate as a Clinical Medical Asst. 10-31-23. She has nearly successfully graduated from SFM Substance Abuse Out Patient Services with a month to finish.
Multiple resources in the community have been explored to help fill in for this mother and son. A few items needed are:
Dillon's Gift Card for Groceries
Rent Assistance to Oxford House for 3 weeks at $130 per week
Assistance with transportation for mom for appointments as needed if someone would like to donate time and resources to transport.
Thank you for your consideration in helping this mother and child!

I have a mom who needs a phone that is unlocked. Hers just quit working. She does have service and time. All she has to do is take her sim card out and put it in a phone that is unlocked. So, if we could help her out with a phone that would be great. By helping her she would have a phone to communicate with work, kids, and appointments and in case of an emergency.
A biological mother is needing some winter clothes for her 4 children that were recently reunified with her. There are 2 girls who wear size 14/16 and 5/6. There are 2 boys who wear size 7/8 tall and 7/8.

DCF has multiple families that struggle during this time to provide small children with gifts during Christmas. The agency would like to provide a small gift of $20-$25 gift cards to Walmart or Target to help families in need buy children gifts for Christmas.

This request would help a family of 6. The children have been in the same non-paid kinship home for some time now. The families AC/Heating unit isn't working properly and they have been told they would have to purchase a new unit at any moment costing around $8,000. I understand this is a big request, if there are any companies who could offer a second opinion to ensure the family doesn't have another option. As the weather changes and it gets colder this is a concern for the family. The family has continued to love, care for, and provide for the children despite the different obstacles they have been faced with. Any help would be appreciated.
