DCCCA is serving a hard-working single father who goes to work Monday through Friday, 8 am to 3 pm, while also attending barber college Monday through Thursday, 5 pm to 10 pm. He currently does not have his own source of transportation and has been relying on the availability of his family and friends to get him to work and class but has missed multiple days due to his support system not being available. This donation would mean so much to the family because he would be able to continue to seek his education and employment which has been what empowers him to be a successful father.

High Urgency Request
Mom and her three boys, ages 14, 12, and 1-year-old are working with our amazing Family Preservation Program. Unfortunately, someone broke into their home and smashed a window and glass on their door. We want this family to feel safe and warm. Mom is doing the best she can and does not have the extra funds to fix the glass. Can someone either please donate their skills and replace the glass in the door and window or donate the finances to have a handyman complete this? We are so grateful for our amazing CarePortal Churches and how much you care about families in our community. Thank you for anything that you can do in order to help this family.

High Urgency Request
Family Preservation is currently serving a single mother of two children who are homeless and living in a hotel on Broadway. The mother has had a difficult time finding appropriate housing because her 1 year old is medically fragile and the home must be extremely sanitized for her safety. This child was born deaf and blind and has numerous medical appointments that has made it impossible for mom to keep a consistent job that will accommodate her families needs. DCCCA is helping mom get disability for her daughter to gain financial stability. DCCCA has also helped mom find an appropriate apartment and has paid the application costs. Mom will be receiving section 8 to cover rent but needs assistance with the move in costs. If a church would also be willing to provide on going relational support and encouragement to this family that would be a major blessing as she does not have a strong support system besides her case team at DCCCA. Please help us support this mom and thank you for taking the time to read this post.

High Urgency Request
Household of 8, one parent and 7 children. The kids range from 4 to 12 years old. The family currently only has one full sized bed in their residence and is in need of additional beds for the children as they are sleeping on the couch or on the floor currently. There are seven children so any combination of beds, preferably two bunk beds and a full or queen mattress would ensure that all the kids have an appropriate place to sleep. The family is also in need of bedding (sheets and blankets) for the requested beds and a dining room table if possible. Right now there is very little furniture in the home. All of these items would aid in creating a more functional and appropriate space for the children.

Critical Request
DCCCA is serving a single mother of 6 children. She recently separated from her husband who was the financial provider of the household but is working to establish everything on her own. She has started the process of vocational rehab with DCF to help her gain employment but has not yet started. She has been searching for employment for the last 2 months but has not had luck and because of this she is behind on her rent. She has just notified her case manager that the family will be evicted tomorrow if their balance is not paid. Mom only has $100. DCCCA cannot cover the entire amount owed and is hoping to collaborate with churches that would be willing to help us prevent this family from being evicted from their new home and being separated. Please do not feel obligated to contribute the entire amount, any help would be a blessing.

We have a mom who is in need of some help coming up with the deposit to move into her apartment. She has been working so hard over the past several months to regain her sobriety, and she just graduated her treatment program!! She has now found an apartment that she hopes to move into before her baby is born in just a couple of months. However, she recently had to pay for an attorney regarding a domestic violence case. Thankfully, she was successful in court, and she is now safe. Due to the expenses of her attorney, she only has enough funds to pay for either the deposit or the first month's rent for new apartment. Any amount would be greatly appreciated as she works toward her goal of moving into this apartment!

Many generous community members donate gifts for the youth in care each year. The majority of gifts are pre-packaged, but we frequently find ourselves repackaging them due to inadequate distribution among siblings within the same family or a youth not having a gift. We often encounter situations where children come into care after gift lists have already been submitted and each year we have several presents that need to be wrapped for the kids in our custody. Having gift wrap and supplies on hand would be a great help to make sure youth receive a gift in a timely manner. Thank you for your help.

During this time of year, youth come into care and may bounce from home to home due to the holidays and a foster homes availability. The staff would like to offer the youth at least a stocking of some sort, would show them that they are loved and that people do care for them. To help fill the stockings we are asking for some of the following items: some snacks, playing cards, small little items that could maybe fill a stocking. Thank you for your consideration for our youth!

Critical Request
Recently single mother of 6 is in desperate need of assistance paying her past due rent. Mom recently had twin babies who have struggled with health concerns since pregnancy and this has kept her from being able to work a second job to make ends meet. The twins health has improved and mom has been able to secure a second job that started Monday, but the bills have piled up. Currently the family's gas is off therefore the family is without heat in the home, but the major over looming debt on her shoulders is the rent. Mother has a single family home that is large enough for the whole family but is currently $1800 behind. Landlord has given mom until November to get this paid or they will end up evicting the family. Mom knows she will not be able to find another home in her budget and is reaching out for any kind of assistance to retain her family's home. Mother and worker have done a budget and the family will have enough resources to pay for the $715/month rent and utilities with both of mother's jobs, she just needs assistance to get out of the debt she got herself into when she wasn't working enough due to her children's health. Mother is reaching out to all local agencies for assistance as well. Any donations will be made directly to the landlord.

High Urgency Request
4 years ago did a kinship placement for a child with diagnosis and medical concerns with maternal aunt and uncle. It has turned out to be a more permanent placement for them. As the child gets older, more behaviors from his past trauma and already existing conditions increase. The only safe place for this child is where he is now. The family is needing some help during some hardship times. The aunt is unable to work as her focus is solely on the child. The child has weekly appointments as well as attending school. Child is growing fast, he is needing clothes as well as food for his special diet needs due to his condition. Aunt is also struggling with keeping up with gas needs and have had to cancel a few appts due to lack of financial means to get gas to get to the appointments that are outside of town. Aunt did not have size but child benefits from picking out his stuff.

They could use help re-stocking home items, specifically kitchen gear, linens, bunkbed frames, and bedding.
