Help Prevent a Child From Entering Foster Care
4
High Urgency Request
I have a Family in need of assistance with moving. I have a mom, a 2 year old, a 5 year old, and a oxygen-dependent elderly woman. The family is working on moving into an apartment that better fits the needs of the size of their family as well as expanding the size of the apartment to better help the oxygen-dependent woman get around. The family was informed they have two days to come up with the rental deposit or they will lose the apartment. The current conditions of all the stuff in boxes is creating a hazard for the children and the elderly individual. This request would help correct the conditions of current home and prevent the need for these children to come in to foster care at this time. This is a single mother with limited support.

Help Prevent a Child From Entering Foster Care
4
High Urgency Request
My client is a single father who lives with his great grandmother and the grandmother has been paying all the bills while her grandson works his DHS case. His two, 2 year old twin children are in Trial Reunification with the father and he is a wonderful, loving father to his children. However, the father has struggled with maintaining employment. The great grandmother has supported him and the children for the past year and has run into financial struggles due to this. She has asked DHS for help with her rent this month. Her rent is $650. DHS is hoping two churches could split the cost and pay $325 each. This grandmother will do anything for her grandchildren. She is so embarrassed that she had to ask for help as she has always been able to pay her rent. Thank you in advance for helping this family.

Help Preserve a Kinship Placement
3
High Urgency Request
I am currently working with a family who has taken in their infant cousin for a kinship placement. The infant is doing very well in this home and is ready to start daycare. However, this kinship foster mother has been unable to find a child care facility that has an opening for an infant that will accept the DHS stipend. Therefore, at this time, this foster mother is paying out of pocket for child care costs for her infant foster daughter; additionally, this foster mother has three teenagers of her own that are involved in extracurricular activities, so adding in the expense of child care when it was not planned has been a strain on them. DHS is making attempts to help as much as possible financially until this foster family begins receiving their monthly stipend to help care for the child by covering other bills so they can more easily afford daycare services as well. This family could use assistance with their water bill, electric bill, and their natural gas bill. Water Bill: $210.89, Electric Bill: $201.00, and ONG bill: $89.00. Any help assisting this family would be very much appreciated!

Help Preserve a Foster Care Placement

High Urgency Request
I have a foster mom who has recently taken placement of her nephew. She could use size 4 diapers, wipes, a crib, a stroller and a car seat. This foster mom has not been approved for foster care payment yet so any way she can get help will be greatly appreciated.
