Normal Request
Recently boys dad has been picked up on a warrant and they are unable to locate their mom. Their older sister has taken them in and is barely making it herself as she is trying to support herself and her child. She does not have the means to provide clothing for her brothers and has been buying them things as she can. The boys have very little to wear. The boys wear men's size medium and large and are asking for solid colored t-shirts, a pair of 14/16 and a pr of 16/20 jeans, medium & large athletic shorts, pkg of boxer briefs for each, pkg of white socks for each and 2 plastic drawers for them to put their items in. Anything that is donated will be a great help and appreciated, thank you.

Normal Request
The family has 3 young children. Two of the boys like to open the door to the apartment and go outside, which causes safety concerns for them. Additionally, they have a 4 month old that will be active in the coming months and they would like a way to prevent the older siblings from opening the door so they are hoping to get some door knob covers to aid in that effort. They would also benefit from additional "baby-proofing" items such as cabinet locks and any additional items that would help provide a safe environment for the baby as well as the other children in the home. Please see the link below for an idea of a couple items that would be beneficial. Thank you! Door Knob Covers: Cabinet Locks: Drawer Locks:

This family has recently encountered some hardships when dad was in a motorcycle accident that caused severe injury. He is a professional mechanic and he won't be able to work for several months, causing the family a severe financial distress.

Two teen girls have moved from a different state to Colorado for placement with a relative. Their dad is not really involved in their lives and their mother died when they were younger. They have lived in Colorado for a few months now and have been unable to arrange their room or take their clothes out of boxes and suitcases due to the lack of space in their closet and lack of bedroom furniture. Each of these girls would benefit from their own individual dresser to assist them in feeling more at home and in their own space.

The children were moved out of their father's home and he will not provide them with any information so that they can activate their phones under their mom's name. The two kids are teenagers and living with their grandmother. It would be beneficial for them to have their phones so that they can stay in communication with their grandmother and mom who lives out of state. New phones would help significantly so mother can put the phone plans under her name.

Single Mom with 2 children needs help moving. We sent request a couple weeks ago and received a response from another Church in the area. They want to help but are unable to provide full assistance and are requesting to possibly tag-team with another community to help family move to the new residence. Client needs assistance with bigger items that she can't carry on her own from her old residence to her new one. Client needs assistance this weekend with the move. If help can't be provided, possibly funding for movers would be very helpful. Assistance with this request would help client not lose her personal items for herself and her family that she wouldn't be able to move out of her old residence.

We are working with a youth who is graduating high school this week! She has been in foster care for several years and is about to graduate HS a year early...awesome!! She will not be returning home to her family and doesn't have much support. She has been working a lot to earn money to pay for her own graduation party. She will be going to college and will move into her dorm room on June 1st. She still has a few items on her gift registry that she needs as she transitions on her own. Could you take a look at the registry and see if you can provide any of the items remaining? We would be so appreciate of any support you can provide for her. Gift cards are also welcomed so she can purchase what she needs. Items purchased off the the gift registry are delivered directly to her.

A family has been living in a hotel for the last (almost) two months after being kicked out of their previous home. They had to leave most of their belongings behind. The family has been in search of somewhere to live for many weeks now, but recently got into a new apartment. The family is two boys (ages 5 and 7) and a girl (age 8). Caregivers are mom and her boyfriend who have full custody of the children. They are in need of some furniture for the home. Most specifically beds for the kids and themselves. They are hoping for a bunkbed for the boys to share and a twin bed for the girl. The kids will all be sharing a bedroom, so they'll need to conserve space. Mom and boyfriend have a mattress that is old and dirty, they are hoping to get a new bed themselves if possible. They have also requested a kitchen table and a couch if possible. If provided a table, they will need five chairs to go with it. The family has been dealing with a lot of challenges for the past three months. The kids all have significant needs, which has required parents to take more time working with the school and providers to assure their needs are met. Mom has a job and boyfriend is currently on leave after an injury. Having assistance with new furniture to get settled into their new home would take a tremendous burden off of them and help them to feel more stabilized after being displaced for the last two months.

Foster parents are in need of support for a recommended literacy program through Away with Words for a child in their home. They were able to secure funding for the child to complete the full evaluation and the specialist said it is a good thing we are looking at this now rather than when he is older. She said we are fortunate he is in a school that uses the literacy program his school is using that goes by the science and she said most do not. So that is good to hear. Once evaluated, she thinks he will need 3 sessions 30 minutes each for the summer and then less after summer since he will be back in school. It would be $96 a week for summer roughly 9 weeks. Do not have an official start/end date yet so the amount could vary.

This teen lost his dad in February due to health issues. His family is struggling financially as dad was the main source of income for the family. He is currently staying with a friend's family and is wanting to save up to buy a car and is requesting work pants (size 32x34) for job interviews. He is also in need of new shoes (size 10), pants (athletic please, size large), shorts (large), and shirts (medium) that he can wear to school and to work. Thank you for considering helping this young man. If finding specific clothing items is difficult, I believe a gift card to some type of sporting goods store that sells athletic clothing/shoes would be appreciated as well.

Child does not have many toys that she can access. Provider made suggestions for the request for these purposes: "These books have vibrant colors and strong visual support. The text is repetitive and predictable for (child). There are sliding doors throughout the book, which will keep (child) engaged and she make predictions about what comes next. Colors can be targeted as well as body parts. Rhyming can also be targeted as well." "The lift and flap books and the wooden latch puzzles are sturdy, interactive and engaging for (child). The colorful pictures provide great visual support to boost receptive and expressive language. Action words, nouns, concepts (locative, sequential), etc can be targeted when playing with these. (child) can follow directions (open the....close the....find the....point to....) and take turns with a relative who plays with her." Welcome to the Zoo Book: Brown Bear book: Melissa and Doug puzzle: Second Need Parent would like to take child to community connections like the Library for story time or Monkey Business for toddler playtime. Parent and child live with extended family. Extended family has had a number of circumstances recently that have had a financial impact on the household.

Help Support a Youth Aging Out

Normal Need
We received a request from Colorado Kids Belong to create Thanksgiving baskets for kids about to age out of foster care. This is their request: Dream Makers is a program of America’s Kids Belong. Dream Makers serves youth who have aged out of foster care or are likely to age out in the near future. Every year 23,000 teens exit the foster care system without a family to help them transition into adulthood. These youth were removed from their families, having experienced neglect, abuse, or abandonment. Dream Makers helps remove barriers that stand in the way of the empowered, connected lives these youth dream of having. The Dream Makers project draws a community around youth who have no family to help them navigate the financial challenges of young adulthood like renting an apartment, getting their first car, clothes for a new job, or locating a reasonably priced laptop for school. The holidays can be a lonely time for the youth when they don't have a family to go visit during the holidays. In past years Dream Makers has partnered with the county, local churches, and local organizations to host a Thanksgiving meal event for the youth. At that event last year the youth were so touched that people would do so many nice things for them and serve them. One of the youth was heard saying, "I forgot what Thanksgiving tasted like." Due to limitations this year we are unable to host a meal. We are asking that the community continue to show love and service to our youth by donating a Thanksgiving basket. Below is the list of what is needed in a Thanksgiving basket.
