I have a family who is currently in an emergency housing situation. The family consists of a single mom with three children. The student is in 8th grade on my campus, but he also has a brother in 12th grade, and a brother that is too young for school. The family was just evicted from their housing situation, and they are staying at a hotel with no mode of transportation or funds. The family is in need of 200.00 dollars to be able to stay in a two bedroom hotel room for the week while they figure out a more permanent option. As of right now, both students are unable to attend school and all four family members are sharing one hotel room. The family's need is very urgent. Any assistance that can be offered is greatly appreciated.
I have a mother of a 14 year old, who is in desperate need of food. The family has been homeless for over 18 months. We have paid for them to be in a hotel for two weeks. Mom receives disability and her girlfriend does work, but they currently do not have any money. They are trying to find a local food bank to go to, but they do not have a car, and do not have any money for transportation. We have not found any that will transport food to them yet. They had food stamps up until the last month, but they did not renew the application before their benefits expired. They have since reapplied and are waiting for them to be approved. The food will need to be dropped off to them.
Looking for help for a fictive kin placement who is taking permanent custody of two children, but is needing help with daycare to maintain permanent care. Due to a freeze in state funding for daycare, the family cannot get help from the state to fund the daycare. The two young children are under 5 and are very happy and comfortable in the home. They are well taken care of and the caretaker can afford to meet their daily needs while working full time, but cannot afford to also pay for daycare. Without daycare they would not be able to work and afford to take care of the kids whom they love dearly and want to keep out of the foster care system. This family is hoping for help from the community to assist with daycare for at least the next six months until they can get further daycare. The cost of daycare is extremely high for all families in today's world and we are hopeful that those who are able will help contribute to meeting these children's needs. The daycare that they attend helps them with learning educationally and with social skills. The total cost of daycare without assistance for the two children is about $2,300 a month. For six months to be fully covered, they would need $13,800

Summary: Family of middle school student requesting help with groceries and utility bills.
Context: Student comes from a single-parent household, where Mom is a dedicated educator struggling to make ends meet. In the past, the family has struggled with stable housing, but through their hard work and determination, they have improved their situation significantly. However, the start of school has put a strain on their resources, and they are needing help with groceries and their electricity bill. If this need was met even partially, it would help both the student and Mom maintain the stability and wellbeing they have worked so hard to achieve.
Single mom of 3 needs assistance. Her youngest child (5 years old), has disabilities and is medically fragile and has limited mobility. Mom works but often stated she often struggles to make ends meet. Currently she was unable to pay her phone bill so school has no way to contact her should her child have a medical emergency. She has a monthly bill of $70 with Metro PCS and also mentioned struggles with making rent at times.
She is also in need of a wheelchair that can help her meet her child's needs. Currently she carries her child from the car to the class (and other places she needs to get him to) due to not having a wheelchair for her child. The wheelchair would need to have a chest harness and a seatbelt to meet his medical needs.
This request is for a spirited 15-year-old female who is a Type 1 diabetic who is insulin-dependent and is starting the reunification process with her bio mother. She was in care for over a year and the clothes that she had from a year ago no longer fit. She has very limited attire and shoes for school and daily wear. The child needs clothes that fit and are school-appropriate. She wears a large in women’s clothing, 14 juniors in pants, and a size 8 in women’s shoes. The mother has several children to care for, including one outside of the one in care who has chronic medical issues. This donation of new clothes or gift cards to a clothing store would assist in meeting a need that the mother cannot afford at this time.

Kinship caregiver (cousin) took in 4 children and has gotten them the basic essentials however, this has placed a major financial burden on the family and limits on buying anything out of the budget. With a total of 8 children in the home and a single mother raising them she has requested assistance with 2 girls bikes so they can all play outside. The other children have bikes but it leaves 2 of them not being able to participate because of that.

It's only been week one and we've already seen several students with "accidents" walking down the hallways. We just want to make this experience easier for them and to help them not lose any instructional time waiting for their parents in the office to change.
