Grandma and Step grandpa have taken in 5 children. Three children currently sleep on a full bed that is broken and has springs coming out and two sleep on the couch. The grandparents are a one income household and are focused on their basic needs. The children need their own beds in grandparents home because they have all expressed living with their grandparents long term due to their mothers drug use.
Please help this single mother of 6. The mother was evicted after paying her rent up for several months and did not get her money back. This caused her to move into a 2 bed hotel with her and her children. While at the hotel her large suv was stolen and now she has no transportation to take her kids to school. I am asking for anyone who can help provide a rental car for the mom until she can hear back from the insurance company and/or save more money to get her own. I also am asking for someone to help with new hotel in a safer area for her and her kids for up to a month. Anything you can do for this family will be helpful!
The mother in this case is a single mom of 3 children under the age of 5, 2 girls and 1 boy. She was raised in the foster care system and has a very limited support system. She recently got a job after being unemployed for 2 months and moved into a new apartment and does not have a washer and dryer. She does not have extra income to use a laundry mat and has been washing the clothes in the sink for the time being. A washer and dryer would be extremely helpful to this family.
Help us get a set of four siblings placed together with their maternal family. We currently have four siblings split into different homes. One of the kinship placements would like to take placement of the other two children so they can all be together. The family needs help with getting a set of bunk beds for the two boys.
Maternal grandmother is caring for two toddlers who were removed from the care of their parents. She desires to provide long term care for the children in her home. The grandmother has recently moved into a larger space to accommodate the children, but is in need of living room furniture. Due to financial restraints, the grandmother is unable to afford furniture. Assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Youth is currently on trial independence. She will be graduating from high school in a couple of months and has plans to attend cosmetology school. She needs assistance in paying for her senior fees so that she does not feel left out. By assisting her it will assist with her confidence while also providing encouragement to her to never give up on her goals.
This case involves 5 children who were placed with their maternal grandmother due to substance exposure to the twin babies. The babies were in the NICU and have not been cleared for daycare yet. The grandmother had to quit her job in order to meet the needs of the children. We are seeking cots or a trundle for the older children and a swing for the babies.
Youth aging out of care/homeless in need of bedding for twin mattress. Bedding includes fitted sheet, top sheet, comforter, and two pillow cases. This bedding will allow the youth to gain access to a clean and safe living environment, the first step in the road to independency. Having a room and bedding that they can call their own will empower them to go out and reach their educational, vocational, and personal goals so they can transition into adulthood well.
This is a very young family with two young children. They became parents as teenagers and are currently working on getting on their feet and learning how to care for their own family. Father and mother both do not have positive family relationships and are essentially on their own to care for their children. They have a strong relationship with one another, and the young father is a hard worker, trying to support his family the best he can. The children had previously been accessing benefits under maternal grandmother's name, but mother and grandmother had a falling out, as grandmother was allowing her new boyfriend access to the children and mother acted protectively. This resulted in the family being removed from grandmother's benefits. The baby lost access to her formula and mother has been frantically working to get the family back on benefits and access the formula needed for her child. The baby has a sensitive stomach to lactose and requires Enfamil NeuroPro Gentlease formula, so she does not have constipation issues. I and the pediatrician were able to provide the family with a small amount of formula in the meantime while mother works on getting the family back on benefits, but they likely need a bit more formula while they wait for benefits to start again.

This single grandmother who has kinship care of her three grandchildren, one of whom is Autistic and has significant therapy needs, is in need of car repairs. Currently the grandmother must rely on others for transportation putting a strain on the family's health and stability. Providing the funds necessary for the car repairs will help the grandmother continue to care for her grandchildren diminishing their risk for child welfare involvement.

A young mother was living in the streets with a male 25 years older than her. With him she was using multiple substances, using sex to get money, and being subjected to occasional physical abuse by the male. He was manipulating her to control her and use her to gain access to money and drugs. She learned that she was pregnant by the man when she was 6 months pregnant and returned home to her mother for support. her mother has helped her make better choices for the safety of the baby and the health of the both of them. Grandmother has helped to provide items for the baby since the mother had no positive associations, she has obtained almost all needed items with the exception of an infant stroller and swing. Mother is trying to go out to look for jobs and but does not drive so she needs a stroller to be able to take her son out with her if grandmother is not home. She stated that she will sit the baby in his car seat during the day so he is not constantly laying but it would be nice if she had a swing so he is able to move better than he can when strapped in car seat. The family is trying to get Mom back into a routine and has not requested any help from anywhere so they would be greatly appreciative of any help.
