A single mother needs help with rental assistance. She has five children ages 9,6,4,1,and 5months. Her hours were reduced at work and she fell behind. Mom received a notice stating that she will be evicted if the balance on her apartment is not paid. Mom has reached for help through another agency in the past. Mom has been making monetary contributions toward her rent but is to far behind. The remaining balance on her rent is 1750.00. Any amount of help toward the balance would be appreciated.
I have a parent who was able to finally move into an apartment through the Salvation Army. The father only has outdoor chairs to sit in. The father has congestive heart failure and is sleeping on a hard floor. The Salvation Army has informed the father they would help with furniture, but no one is returning his phone calls. The Father can benefit from a bedroom set/ just a bed full size or larger. The father would also benefit from a living room set. The apartment is a one-bedroom apartment, and his 17-year-old son will be united with him. If there is a living room set the 17-year-old will have somewhere to sit and sleep. If the father gives the 17-year-old the bedroom the father will have some where to sleep and sit if a living set is provided as well.

The caregiver is seeking rental assistance in the amount of $500 to assist her in maintaining the current rent/household utilities. The caregiver expressed that she would be most grateful for any assistance as she wants to ensure that she can continue to provide the child's needs in a safe and stable environment.
This youth is 15 years old. She struggles with self-confidence due to extreme skin issues, bullying at school, and lack of peer relationships.

This case involves a grandmother caring for her 4-year old and 2-year old grandchildren. The children were recently placed with her and are sharing a bed.

Mom is a single mother, who just relocated to Texas. Mom was a traveling nurse but had to quit her job due to her children's behaviors and not having anyone else to care for them. Mom is in the process of looking for work that does not require her to travel and therefore at this time does not have a steady income. Mom does not always have money to clean the children's clothes.
Kinship family is needing emergency assistance with household bills. The primary kinship caregiver, and sole income earner of household was recently laid off from her job. She is the caregiver for a 2, 5 and 7 year old under CPS custody. In addition, there is a new born infant who resides in the home. She has fallen behind on essential household bills. Without assistance, she runs the risk of losing access to running water, electric and gas. Without these running utilities, she runs the risk of having the children removed from her home. The children do not have another kinship caregiver who would be able to assist in caring for the children. This would lead to the children entering the foster care system.
We are trying to return a couple of children with special needs home with their mother. They have a bunk bed, but need a full size mattress for the bottom bunk. The family is also in need of a toddler bed.
If a trundle bed suffices for toddler bed, we can supply everything - our partner, Dallas Furniture Bank recommends the trundles for toddlers since they are so low to ground. If this works, please email me.
