Working with a parent who is part of the DCFS workload, the worker reached out for a bit of assistance with his mother's situation. We helped create a plan that ensured the mother/minor's safety and well-being. The family is currently homeless and living in their car. Mother has stage two cancer and custody of her children. DCFS is currently in the process of securing stable housing for the mother. However, it will be two more weeks before the family can move into their home. As a result, the worker reached out for assistance in any way she needed, such as paying for a hotel room. DCFS is able to provided coverage for a week. And we are wondering if someone might be able to cover the second week which would be 11/28/2023 through 12/05/2023. The cost is $99 per night, a total cost of $693 for 7 nights. She is currently at the Bellflower.

Hello, I am making this request for a family of 9. This family recently reunited and the Department is working on stabilizing the family. The mother was provided housing by the Family Reunification Program, and is in great need with assistance to furnish the home. Previously, the mother and the children were living with the maternal grandmother, which was causing a lot of discomfort, due to there being a large amount of people living in the home. The children have stated they are thrilled to be living in a home for themselves, and are looking forward to making their new home, feel like home. The mother is currently employed, but is only making enough to support the children and additional bills. The children's ages include: 15, 14, 13, 11, 10, 9, 8, 5. The mother is hopeful she can have a large sectional couch, in order to be able to sit the children during family time.
A child that is five has been reunified with his father. He and the father sleep in the same room. The father is currently rebuilding his life as he now sleeps in a twin bed. The family is requesting a toddler bed and mattress for the youth so he and the father can sleep comfortably.
The client is a single mother who recently ended her relationship with the father due to ongoing domestic violence. The mother is strong a resilient. To continue to ensure her child's safety, the mother would like to purchase cameras to place in her window to provide further surveillance for her home until she can move to a new apartment, however, she currently does not have the funds for the expense. As such, I am requesting Target/Walmart/Amazon gift cards to assist the mother with the cost of cameras.

We are asking for financial assistance for a mother, 31 years old, who is ill and placed in a nursing care facility due to her critical medical issues. Mother is blind in one eye and has 9% kidney function. Despite her medical condition, Mother continues to work on reunification. The mother visits with her children at the nursing home facility, but due to her medical status, she is unable to work and has zero source of income. Her children are older, 14 and 16. We are requesting a financial donation for a mother to use on her visits with her children. The mother would like to be able to offer the children a meal, go out of the facility, buy them something, or purchase things she and the children can use during the visits. Any financial assistance received will be used to strengthen the bond and quality of the visits with the children, while they still have their mother. The mother has a parent partner assigned who is helping her come up with activities she can do during the visit with her children. It is unknown if the mother will receive a transplant donation, so the time of the visits is crucial for these children.

I recently received the case of this single mother of 3, two of the children reside with mother, and the other resides with her uncle. Mother is supporting the children on her own as well as getting them to and from school and the babysitter. She is doing her best to support her family but due to appointments related to the case, court case, medical and other services that DCFS is requesting the family to do, the mother has had to take a lot of time off, and since she just started the job she has no paid time off. Mother is of need of Rental assistance of $1671. By assisting the family with the rent, it would be helpful from preventing the family from being evicted and for the children and mother being homeless. Thank you for your consideration.
Single mother and her 4 children (ages: 13, 3, 2, and 1). The child who is 2-years-old, attends physical and speech therapy. The child who is 1-year-old attends occupational therapy and the child who is 3-years-old receives Applied Behavior Analysis therapy. Mom’s 13-year-old daughter also attends therapy. Currently, mom’s car is not working. Mom stated that she took her car to the mechanic and mom needs a catalytic converter for her car to be repaired. Mom does not have the funds due to working part-time. Mom has been struggling to take her daughters to the necessary services to meet their needs. Local Family Resource Center has assisted mom in saving money by providing her with basic needs such as food, a bus pass, diapers, and a store gift card. Mom has been getting rides from her neighbor upon availability. Mom explained that she runs late to the appointments or must reschedule due to not having consistent transportation. Due to mom’s car not working and not having the funds to pay for her car, mom has been feeling stressed and her blood pressure was high, so mom had to go to the emergency room and was told to rest and take days off work. Mom has not followed doctor’s orders due to not being able to afford missing work to be able to provide for her children. By being able to have the catalytic converter repair, the mom will be able to have her own functioning vehicle to transport her children to their necessary appointments and reducing the high stress she’s been feeling

This family just experienced a car accident that totaled the family's only mode of transportation. Unfortunately, the mothers insurance would only cover a rental car for a couple of days. Now, she is having to pay for a rental car out-of-pocket which is causing extreme financial stress. Mother is a single mother of 3 kids, 10-year-old, 6-year-old, and 6-year-old, and only makes around $2,200 a month which is considered low income. Her rent is $1,100 which takes most of her budget. Her student's have had difficulty getting to school on time since the accident because she cannot afford the rental car every week. Without a car, it takes the family about 40 minutes each day to walk to-and-from school, and Mother is unable to get to work to provide for her family. The mother is requesting a used car or cash to help with a down payment on a car. This mom would be very thankful for any support as getting this critical need met will ultimately provide some stability for her and all her children in this difficult time.
