A diligent and hard working mother of 3 small children is a student at Cornerstone Crossroads Academy. Our very small fully accredited high school has full wrap around case management to help our students have the best chance to succeed. This mother of 3 has recently moved and has almost nothing in her new apartment. The distraction of her urgent needs has detoured her from concentrating on her graduation plan.

I have a young mother of two young children who could really use help making her home safe for her children. She could really use a baby gate, a door alarm, knob covers, and a portable heater that is safe and appropriate for young children to be around.
The family consists of a single mother, who just lost her job and her four children. They are behind on their utility bills. We have the electric bill covered, but we need help with the gas bill. She has paid everything down on the gas bill to approximately $230.
The caregiver is in the process of having her home licensed. She is a single woman who assumed care of the child, who is also her cousin and 5-years-old, after his mother had mental breakdown. Mother's current whereabouts are unknown, and she has been in and out of mental institutions. Caregiver has had child since birth and is requesting financial assistance to pay her utilities so she can have her home licensed and receive ongoing financial support for the child.
Kinship caregiver is needing assistance, child (13 yo) is afraid of the dark and is needing battery operated night lights, and video baby monitor. When this need is met the child can feel more secure and feel safe.
Grandmother reached out to the campus recently with concerns for her granddaughter wellbeing. Grandmother has taken over guardianship, but this has caused a major strain to the finances. Grandmother states she is behind on rent and currently has no food, with light and water bill pending. Grandmother is very concerned student will stop attending school as she is also trying to work with her regarding the abrupt departure of her biological mother, she feels bad to have to ask, but does not see any other options to keep a roof over their heads and some hot food on the table, Grandmother is also asking for prayer as this has been a very difficult month and its holiday time, thank you for your support.
It is a family of 7 with 5 children (11 years old girl, 10 years old boy, 9 years old girl, and 7-year-old twins, a boy and a girl). All of the children are in needs of beds. The family recently moved apartments and had to throw away all of the furniture away due to a roach infestation. The family did not want to move the insects from one home to the other and they thought the best course of action would be to throw everything away and start over. Anything would be helpful to the family and help ease the burden.
Grandmother is caring for 1 y/o (F), 2 y/o (M), and 9 y/o (F). The 1 y/o is needing a crib, and the 2 y/o is needing a toddler bed for appropriate sleeping arrangements. This would allow for the children to have safe sleeping arrangements. The children are also needing appropriate car seat safety, as they currently do not have any. This will reduce the risk of serious injury and death in the event of a car accident.
A single caregiver was just licensed to adopt her 3 year old niece. This little girl will be 4 years old in January. Her niece recently had a huge growth spurt and does not have fall and winter clothes that fit her. The little girl is need of size 6-7 clothing that is appropriate for fall and winter.
An aunt and uncle took in their triplet nieces and nephew to their home upon their release from the hospital after their birth. The babies are now 7 months old and are in the process of transitioning to their cribs. The caregivers are requesting assistance with crib mattresses and crib sheets for the babies. The family has had a lot of expenses in caring for the babies and are requesting help with the cost of crib mattresses and sheets. The donation of crib mattresses will allow the caregivers to continue to meet the other needs of the babies. The caregivers are in the process of getting licensed with their hopes of adopting the babies.
This 6-person family does the best they can on under $50,000 annual income. They are working on moving out of their current apartment which is in bad condition. During a storm, there was a bad leak which caused water damage in one of the bedrooms which destroyed the beds in the room. They had to throw the beds out and are currently sharing 2 mattresses for all members of the family. They do not want to replace the beds until they move but would like help with some air mattresses to improve the quality of life for their children until they move and can save money for beds.
A mother and her three children (5 YO, 9 YO, 16 YO) are currently staying with paternal aunt. They are currently sleeping on one air mattress between the four of them. The family is in need of a bunk bed and mattress' so that the children can sleep in their own beds and have more room for comfort.

I have a family who is the victim of domestic violence, a mother and her 4 daughters. Mother suffered domestic violence at the hands of her husband. She alerted law enforcement and tried to leave the home. During the violence that occurred in the home, the furniture got destroyed. The husband left the home and mom is left in the home with her daughters having to look at the aftermath of the abuse daily. The furniture is completely broken and torn. I have not been able to sit down during my visit. Mom has been looking for employment since she lost her job so she has not had money to purchase furniture. She is barley getting by but would like the children to feel good in their home, which is hard to do when the furniture is torn and is a reminder of what occurred. Helping this family furnish their home would result in the children feeling better about the situation and work on moving on without a constant reminder of what happened. This will also be a relief for mom as it will be one less thing she has to worry about while she is working on putting her life back together.
I have a wonderful sixteen-year-old girl that has been in care for one year. She finally has the opportunity to be placed with a family member instead of in a foster home. She was placed last Friday, and she looked so happy to be there. The family member was ready for her with her own room. However, when she went to get the queen size bed out of storage, it had been destroyed by the elements. The family member is a single person that would have to save up for many months to afford to pay for a new one. Right now, the sixteen-year-old is sleeping in the family member's bed and the family member is sleeping on the couch. This is not a long-term solution. We are requesting a new or used Queen size bed for a growing teenager. Thank you for your help in maintaining this family connection.
On September 22, 2023 the parents took their two children to Cook Children’s ER. Both the 1 year old child and the 4 year old child were seen. Unfortunately, due to a high deductible their insurance was not able to cover much of the cost of this visit. They were also denied any financial assistance from Cook Children’s Financial Counselors and their bill due is $6,000.00. We understand this is a large bill and we would like to request financial assistance to help the family start to chip away at the bill and give the family some financial relief.
