Single mom of 3 children is in need of getting birth certificates for her children so they can enroll in a new school. This family has been homeless, and by staying at many different homes, she has lost a lot of important information. We have been helping her get her ID, SSN, and now birth certificates for her and her children. This transition for the kids has been tough and she believes them switching schools to where they are now will help them become more stable. This process is all part of her getting a job, housing, etc. We are wrapping around this mom to support her in this process!
Father of one of our children in foster care does not have a sim card for his phone. He works two jobs but does not make much money and asked for a Walmart Gift Card to purchase a $50 Smart Phone sim card so he can get his cell phone to work. He needs to be able to contact his lawyer, daughter and caseworker. He says that he has already paid ahead on the phone, so service would not be an issue.
DCCCA family preservation is in need of size 4 diapers . We have off brands but the family's are reporting they are having rashes from off brands so Pampers is the ideal choice. So two to 3 cases please.

Thanks and be blessed
This father is a hard working parent , who has been given custody of his young child for safety reasons. The child is thriving and healing , the father has a full time job, and a vehicle that is no longer drivable ,the vehicle has engine or transmission problems that would cost more to repair than to just get another car. The father uses the vehicle to take his child to therapy , school and also to get to his employment site. We are hoping to raise 3,500.00 dollars so he can buy a working vehicle.
Thank you so much. Updated on January 23, 2023 by an Agency Worker We would also like to add that if someone has a dependable car they would like to donate to this family, please let us know. Your donation will greatly improve this family's situation, relieve a great deal of stress on this single father, and put dad and child on the road to success. Thank you for your consideration and all you do to make a difference in the lives of families!

A young name is in need of a new futon. He has been offered a bed, but he prefers a futon for when he has friends over. The one that he currently has is broken. He is wanting one that is more comfortable like a bed as well. Getting this futon will allow for him to not only get a good night's rest, but it will also allow for him to socialize with his friends.

Hello! I have a single mom in need of financial assistance with replacing the windshield on her vehicle. The estimated online cost for this repair through Safelite autoglass is $364.98. This will be the first step to helping mom get stable with her newborn baby because this will allow her to have reliable transportation to work, daycare, and appointments. Please let us know if this is something you can help with.
I have a student at my school whose family is being evicted from their apartment in 10 days. The 6th grader attends my school and is such a hard worker and a very sweet kiddo. There are two additional students in the family younger two are in elementary and early education in our district, ages 4 and 10. The mother is a single parent supporting the three children on her own. She is trained and worked as a nurse, but due to an injury has been unable to work for several months recently and they have fallen behind on rent. They owe two months rent and fees associated with the eviction process in the amount of $3387. The mother expressed they have no family in the area they can stay with and she is extremely worried about becoming homeless in the winter. She is working willingly with the school social worker to access community resources, but so far has been unsuccessful in finding emergency funding. Any contribution towards the total will hopefully help mom be able to negotiate with her apartment management and give her time to pursue other ways to help cover the cost.
The oldest is in 6th grade and she is a good student and a basketball player. The family has been through a lot this past few months. The mom shared that she is very scared of being evicted in winter and not having a place to go when it is cold outside.

DCCCA Family Preservation is asking for help from the community to replenish our supply of hygiene products in our donation pantry. These products will benefit low-income families in crisis due to the following real-life scenarios: domestic violence has caused a family to flee their home with only the clothes on their backs; a family is experiencing homelessness and does not know where their next meal is going to come from, much less how they are going to afford a bottle of shampoo or body wash; a parent has made the decision to go into substance abuse treatment to avoid losing their child/ren but cannot afford the essentials to take with them to the treatment facility; the child/ren are at risk of being placed in foster care due to showing up for school with poor or bad hygiene due to their single parent not having the means to buy hygiene products. We are grateful for any help from the community to support the basic needs of the families we serve. For your convenience, there three options to help meet part of this need: You may purchase items directly from our Walmart wish list: . You may purchase a Walmart gift card in-store or online and either mail or deliver to our address below.

A mother is very close to reunifying with her children; she just needs one more bed! She would like a daybed or a bed that works as both a couch and a bed since she will be sleeping in the living room to make space for her children.
She would also like a Ring doorbell as a safety precaution to ensure the perpetrator of the children's abuse does not come to the home and to help the children feel more safe.

I have a mom on my caseload who is currently expecting. She is due 01/18. She is currently living in a women’s shelter and has recently informed me she does not have any baby clothes or diapers and wipes. Anything purchased or donated will be helpful.
A child in our care currently resides with his grandmother. The grandmother’s home is becoming unsafe to live and she needs to move as soon as possible. She found a place that accepts her section 8 voucher but she needs the deposit to help her secure it. Her deposit is $500 but I am only asking for $200 or however much you are able to give. This child loves being with his grandmother. Children’s Division doesn’t not want to separate the two because of the unsafe living environment. I am very appreciative of whatever is donated.
