I have a pregnant teen on my workload who has a 3 year child under her care and will be due in August. She is in need of pretty much everything as she is currently living with her boyfriend’s parents and they are not willing to help much. She has asked me for food gift cards, care seat, stroller, and a bassinet for her expecting baby in August. She has enrolled in school for her GED and is wanting the best for her small family. Any assistance or support will help to get this young couple off to a great start.

I am working with a single father of five, who currently resides at a homeless shelter with his children. One of his kids has severe asthma, which has impacted his ability to maintain a job because of his son's medical needs, and he continues to lose jobs. He has controlled his son's asthma by working together and reaching out to other community resources like SA Kids Breath. He lost his wife because of an asthma attack, and he continues prioritizing his son's health to ensure this does not happen to him. He lost his wife, and his children lost their mother in 2020, and they are still trying to cope with this horrific loss. This father is doing his best to provide his children with stability. This father continues to put his best foot forward, and he needs a bit of help. The children need more clothes. They reside at the shelter, and they only get dinner once, and when they are hungry, he would like to run to HEB to grab them something to snack on because they can only have certain items at the shelter. He is also needing help with at CPS energy bill that is 2700.

A family has recently moved into an apartment after living from hotel room to hotel room. They do not have very many valuables aside from a few clothing items each. Receiving beds will allow the family to feel more at home in their apartment. The family is unable to purchase furniture themselves at the moment as the majority of their income was going to hotel rooms. This assistance will allow the family to focus on utility bills and other necessities that arise.

I have a mother who recently got laid off from her job and she just moved to a new home. She was working on getting beds for each of the children but now doesn't have income. She is asking for one twin bed for her last child and a dresser for their room. Right now her two sons are sharing a twin bed so with an additional twin, they can each have their own.
