Bio mother of 4 children is in need of assistance with obtaining a bus pass. She is currently working services on her treatment plan and needs a bus pass so that she can continue to attend services, work, and family time with her young children. Any assistance with meeting this need would be greatly appreciated.
My client is a 16 year old boy who is living in a group home and is in desperate need of some sweat pants and shorts. He said he likes the colors black and grey but doesn't really like bright colors. He wears size XL. For the first time ever he is playing football this year and is working out a lot so he would like some work out clothes. I was thinking maybe two pairs of sweat pants and 2-3 pairs of shorts. This child has come a long way and he doesn't ever ask for much. Thank you in advance for helping this child get some work out clothes.

Hello, please help this family by providing them with assistance with gas and/or groceries. The children are living with their uncle and Grandmother. The uncle works full time but is needing aid in providing for the two extra children in his home. The grandma is unable to work at this time due to her health. The family is confident if they had a little assistance with some basic needs within the month he would be able to catch up financially and maintain the care for the children. Please help provide this family usually shops at Walmart for groceries or Quick trip card for gas. This will be a great aid to the family as they get settled into their new arrangements. If the family is unable to establish themselves financially with the children the kids may have to live elsewhere which would be detrimental to their emotional state after finally getting comfortable in the home with their family.
It is a mother and her son living together that has just received a car. The car has stopped running and is sitting in the driveway needing to be fixed. The mother stated that her neighbor advised that it could be a fuel issue. For now her son is riding his bike to school, but when winter comes this could be an issue with him getting to school. The mother is working, but she doe's not make enough money to have the car fixed and pay bills.
This family I am working with has been through a lot. The father is the main caregiver to his two girls. Recently, the father needed to have a triple heart bypass but had to delay his surgery due to his daughter being kidnapped to and taken to California by an older man. His heart bypass surgery was scheduled when his daughter went missing. Thankfully, his daughter has been returned and the perpetrator is being prosecuted by the criminal law. Between the father's medical appointments and his daughters counseling the family is in need of reliable tires for his vehicle. He has been purchasing used tires that have not been reliable. In fact, last week he had another flat tire where he had to change it on the side of the freeway. This dad does his best to take care of his girls, but with his heart disability he cannot work. When I asked the daughter if there was anything I can do for her, she asked if she could get a new mattress for her bed. Her bed is a folded futon mattress on a traditional twin box spring. Both girls beds are this way. Tires and two twin mattresses could really help this family feel some normalcy in their lives.
Parents, natural mother and father need help with transportation to services and asked for help with bus passes. It will help them to continue to work towards reunification with their child. Parents are working services together and eager to stay engaged with services.
The agency is working with a 17 year old young lady who just moved to a new placement. She needs school uniforms before she is able to start school. She is required to have red, black or navy polo shirts and navy, khaki or black pants. She is a size large/XL in shirts and wears size 16/18 in pants. She needs at least 3 sets of clothing. She also needs a black belt. All sized are in women's. Thank you for assisting this young lady! The uniforms will allow her to start her new school and feel confident in her new clothing.
There is a 6th grader at Kipp College Prep who is in need of school uniforms. She is in need of three Kipp navy blue shirts med. size 8 and three pair of tan khakis size 10-12 for a girl. The young ladies father doe's not have the funds to wash often so the young lady has to wear her uniforms dirty to school. If supplied three extra uniforms it could last her thru the week and she then can take her uniforms to her grandmother's to wash on the weekend.
The mother of two is needing a bus pass for transportation. The mother is wanting to seek employment and make it to scheduled appointments. Some of the local transportation methods have restrictions when you have children and what category the appointment's are for. Also, the family is in need of 2 dressers to put they're clothes in.
The family is currently participating in a Family Centered Services case to prevent higher levels of intervention. The family had a vehicle stolen that was recovered by law enforcement. The vehicle is currently at a mechanics shop, their insurance company covered a small portion of the cost. The family is needing $300.00 to pay the remaining cost to get their vehicle out. Having the vehicle will help the family maintain jobs and engagement with service providers. Also any resources to help with fuel cost will be beneficial for this family to be able to continue providing care and transportation for their family. A QuikTrip gas card for $20 would be extremely helpful.
During a family visit and house assessment the worker noticed that the family who had just moved into their apartment did not have any dressers to put their clothes in. We are requesting two dressers for a single parent in a two bedroom apartment.
This child was recently placed in this county along with a new school away from her home. At first she was having troubles being in a new place away from home, but she is starting to get adjusted. She informed the worker she is wanting to run for homecoming and is wanting a dress in order to wear the dress to. The child would be very grateful to have a dress because the one dress she has no longer fits her. She does not have a specific dress she is wanting yet because she has not tried anything on and is unsure of her size.
A single mother is preparing to begin reunification with her 1 year old daughter and she also gave birth to a new baby girl 5 weeks ago. She needs assistance with diapers and wipes for both children (Size 1 and 4). It can be any brand. Natural mother has also been advised of other organizations in the city to get infant items for free. Natural mother will be starting work again and needs the extra help to pay for her electric bill. Any help is greatly appreciated!
The family is currently involved in a Family Centered Services case to prevent potential intervention through the court system. The family is needing assistance with their utility bill to ease some of the financial strain they are experiencing as there are three children and the family has to get children to appointments throughout the week. The family's utility bill is currently $202 past due and any help would be greatly appreciated to alleviate one stressor in their lives.
Client in need includes natural mother and her two year old son. Natural mother is engaged in family time with her son and is dedicated to reunifying with him. However she does struggle with poverty and lack of transportation. She would love to attend her necessary treatment services but struggles finding a way to get there. Helping this mother with transportation via uber assistance would go a long way in ensuring she attends treatment which would assist her in reunifying with her son. Her and her son have a strong, loving bond so reunification for this case is key and lack of transportation right now is a major barrier.
Two foster children are entering new placement and are in need of a bunk bed, 2 mattresses, and bedding. The two teenage girls have moved around from home to home, and unfortunately do not have any sheets, blankets, pillows, or other bedding for themselves. The girls will be sharing a room with each other and would benefit from having a bunk bed (and mattresses) in order to save space.
A new foster parent, older in age, took placement of two teens who are infested with head lice. She is overwhelmed with all the washing and cleaning of the home. One child who has very thick hair has to have it professionally treated at the lice clinic, as well as have a haircut. This is a major expense, along with all the continuing of washing. They will receive a discount for having Soonercare.
Please help us strengthen this family. Grandmother has taken in three of her grandchildren. Grandmother is now taking on the responsibilities of getting the children to and from school, counseling, as well as other daily tasks required for the children to be in her home. She is currently two months behind on her car payment and in need of assistance to bring it current before her car is repossessed. Please bless this family!

An adult sister has placement of her teenage sister and her biological 3-year-old daughter.
