A local single foster mom is caring for two teen boys in foster care and would love to surprise them with some brand new shoes! We know it's a big ask, but they can't stop talking about Jordans and would be BLOWN AWAY to get some. Would also be great with some Amazon gift cards to be able to pick out their absolute favorites! One wears size 7.5, one wears size 10. If Jordans are outside of a comfortable price range, they would still be grateful for an Amazon gift card of any amount to be able to pick out some new shoes! Thank you!

This family is currently going through hard times financially. They have 2 girls and are living in a camper currently, trying to find a more permanent place to live. This mom has always put her girls needs over her own and always has a plan B and C if needed. This mom could really use either a Wal-Mart gift card for basic needs, or a gas card as they live about 45 mins from her girls' school which has been a constant for the girls and she could use gas to help get them to and from their school. Any help would be greatly appreciated from this family during this time.

The LOFT, (formerly known as The Family Visitation Center) which is the the area of DHS that starts family time with families when children are initially removed from their home. We are located within the DHS building at 1675 GOG Rd. During the week prior to Christmas, The LOFT staff would like to share some holiday spirit with the families we serve. To do this we are in need of some holiday games, crafts to make, and gifts to give. The LOFT will be closed December 22-26, so we will be having all families come in prior to their regularly scheduled time in order to make sure the families get to see each other before the holiday. We will be having our holiday celebration with families the week of December 18th-21st, so the soonest y'all would want to start givings gifts! On average we have about 25-35 families coming to have family time during a week. Age ranges of children are from newborn to 17, but on average children's ages are newborn to 13 years old. The LOFT staff would love to be able to provide games, crafts, and even give the children some small gifts during the week prior to Christmas to make this time special for the families. The parents of these children are not always able to buy anything for their children so any help with these items would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
This request is for The Department of Human Services to help support family time. This can be delivered to DHS.
