This is a single-mother household who will be moving across country at the end of the month. Mom has an injured shoulder and no drill or necessarily tools to remove the items from her current apartment. She would be very grateful for someone to come and help her remove curtain rods and a TV/TV mount. Possibly looking for help patching holes in apartment walls from these items as well, if required by current landlord. If unable to help physically, arranging service through TaskRabbit (link provided) would also benefit this mom. Thank you for considering!

Parents of 5 young children are needing assistance with high gas costs due to transportation to school/daycare for the children. The family has a larger vehicle to safely accommodate all the children so it uses a high amount of gas. Safeway, King Soopers, or any gas station gift cards would be greatly appreciated.

The Department is working with a 15 year old girl who has been in and out of placement since she was a young child. She is currently in placement due to substance abuse by her mother. The placement is struggling financially and I am requesting additional fun things for the child to do. She likes going to movies, chick fil A, going to the mall and doing make up. It would be awesome to have some fun things she can do with her friends where she does not feel like she needs to ask her placement.

A new kin caregiver family caring for a sibling set of 3 children is in need of furniture and some additional resources. They need bunk beds with sheets and blankets and a crib for a 1 year old with a sheet and blanket as well. Additionally, they could use size 4 and size 5 diapers, Children's Pediasure and a gift card to King Soopers to get some food which will help off set the financial hardship of a prescription medication they had to fill recently for the child that was costly.

Three teens who are struggling with school attendance are in need of motorized scooters to get to/from school. Mother of the children has some mental health issues that prevent her from being up every morning to get them to school and due to new bus boundaries, they do not qualify for bus services. They travel just under two miles each way to school and this is creating a barrier to getting to school on time. They would like to be involved in activities but transportation is also an issue for this and the scooters would allow them to participate in extracurricular activities.

Child does not have many toys that she can access. Provider made suggestions for the request for these purposes: "These books have vibrant colors and strong visual support. The text is repetitive and predictable for (child). There are sliding doors throughout the book, which will keep (child) engaged and she make predictions about what comes next. Colors can be targeted as well as body parts. Rhyming can also be targeted as well." "The lift and flap books and the wooden latch puzzles are sturdy, interactive and engaging for (child). The colorful pictures provide great visual support to boost receptive and expressive language. Action words, nouns, concepts (locative, sequential), etc can be targeted when playing with these. (child) can follow directions (open the....close the....find the....point to....) and take turns with a relative who plays with her." Welcome to the Zoo Book: Brown Bear book: Melissa and Doug puzzle: Second Need Parent would like to take child to community connections like the Library for story time or Monkey Business for toddler playtime. Parent and child live with extended family. Extended family has had a number of circumstances recently that have had a financial impact on the household.

Help Support a Youth Aging Out

Normal Need
We received a request from Colorado Kids Belong to create Thanksgiving baskets for kids about to age out of foster care. This is their request: Dream Makers is a program of America’s Kids Belong. Dream Makers serves youth who have aged out of foster care or are likely to age out in the near future. Every year 23,000 teens exit the foster care system without a family to help them transition into adulthood. These youth were removed from their families, having experienced neglect, abuse, or abandonment. Dream Makers helps remove barriers that stand in the way of the empowered, connected lives these youth dream of having. The Dream Makers project draws a community around youth who have no family to help them navigate the financial challenges of young adulthood like renting an apartment, getting their first car, clothes for a new job, or locating a reasonably priced laptop for school. The holidays can be a lonely time for the youth when they don't have a family to go visit during the holidays. In past years Dream Makers has partnered with the county, local churches, and local organizations to host a Thanksgiving meal event for the youth. At that event last year the youth were so touched that people would do so many nice things for them and serve them. One of the youth was heard saying, "I forgot what Thanksgiving tasted like." Due to limitations this year we are unable to host a meal. We are asking that the community continue to show love and service to our youth by donating a Thanksgiving basket. Below is the list of what is needed in a Thanksgiving basket.
