The boys have been in placement since 4/2019 and are in the process of being adopted by their foster parents. All 4 boys have significant trauma histories and have been incredible progress in all areas in the last year since being with their foster parents. The boys do continue to exhibit some behaviors and the team has identified that it would be a positive outlet for the boys to engage in an extracurricular activity to help with social skills, structure, schedule and provide a healthy outlet for them. All four boys are athletic and love sports. They haven't had opportunities to participate in or learn about sports and they are excited for the opportunity to learn multiple sports through this athletic program. The foster home is a single income home as one of the foster parents had to quit his job to be a stay at home parent due to the boys' needs. There aren't any rec center options near the foster family due to location of their home and the boys' school doesn't offer athletics for the younger 2 boys.

A fatherand his five children went through a traumatic experience in April when his wife, and the mother of his children, passed away. He was left to care for the children, and his three younger children struggled with getting enrolled in school. This is due to the fact that his own mother died of COVID and he was scared to put the children in public school. The youngest child has Beckwith-Weidemann syndrome so this father has a lot on his plate. His wife had previously taken care of getting the children enrolled in school and making sure that medical needs were met. Currently, the family is living off of the children's survivor benefits while he is trying to get everything in order. The children just started online school and are switching between 1 family laptop to get all of their schooling done. This family would really appreciate three laptops or tablets that his children can complete their schooling on.
