Greetings. I was blessed to have returned 4 children to the household of their biological parents. Unfortunately, bio mom was stricken with Covid. Dad had to stay home with the children and lost his job. He is actively seeking a new job. Bio mom and dad still have to fulfill their services and need help with gas to get to these places, not to forget job interview, kids to school, etc. Please help this family if you will, as they are working so very hard to achieve their goals.
Foster mom of three children with a total household of 5 children is needing help to pay for Lice Treatment at Lice Clinics of America (LCA). This sweet foster mom took placement of three children late on Tue. She was not made aware that the children had an infestation of lice. The children were brought to her home carried in asleep and placed in bed. When she bathed them the following morning, she discovered the lice. She along with the help of other family members have been combing lice for two days. The children's heads are so infested that it is recommended that they receive the treatment from LCA to ensure that the infestation is eradicated. There are a total of 5 children in this home that either have an infestation or has been exposed. Each child has to be treated. The cost for the treatment is $155 per child. The foster mom is able to take care of three of the children, but we are asking for help with paying for two. The total cost is $310.

Please help this mother to achieve this evaluation she needs to complete her journey of success in completing her court ordered services.
A 17 year old girl on my caseload is now placed in a non-relative kinship home that kindly took her in. She is still in the process of gathering things that the youth needs in her home. My client was using a sleeper sofa to sleep on, however, the sleeper sofa is not as functional as they were hoping it was going to be. My client is way too tall for the sleeper sofa which makes it very difficult for her to try and sleep on it. She could really benefit from having a full size mattress and box spring or supported bed frame. She already has full sized bedding that she can use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am currently working with a father that has been working very hard to regain custody of his infant daughter along with her mother. He does have older children, however those children are not in his custody either, and he has expressed that he hope to do things differently with his new baby than he did with his older child. This father has been engaging in other classes and services that have been required of him to complete as well as continue to work. while this father has been working very hard right now he does need some support financially to help him pay for his domestic violence assessment and some of the classes. He does not deny that he needs to get help learning how to deal with his frustration and he is looking forward to getting additional help with that through safenet services. taking this assessment as well as the classes will ensure that his daughter and her mother will be in a safe and stable home environment. The assessment for Safenet services is $125.00. We appreciate any assistance that you can offer in helping this father pay for his assessment.

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.
I am currently working with a family with a newborn and a two year old. All adults are disabled and cannot provide additional income to the family.

For this family, $80 per month is taking away from basic needs. This family would appreciate any shape of washer as long as it works. I do have a truck and can help with delivery if needed. Updated on September 20, 2022 by an Agency Worker The family is willing to accept a working used washer also. I have a truck I can help deliver if needed.
