Parents need your help paying the summer camp fee of $675 in order to provide a positive peer opportunity for their 14 year old son with other disabled children. Their son is non-verbal, autistic and an epileptic. One of the parents’ plans to attend this camp with their son. This young boy needs and deserves lots of positive interaction with peers in a supervised and safe atmosphere so he can experience new things available at this camp. By covering even a portion of the camp fee, you will be making a huge difference in this family’s life. This boy will be able to zip line through the woods, jump off a diving board amidst a cheering crowd and create a lifelong relationship with a camp friend among many other camp activities.
The Family and Child Welfare thank you for considering assisting with this fee. Again, any donation amount will go to pay for this young boy’s camp fee.

Parents of 7 children need our community’s assistance with beds, bedding and clothing storage/organization. They also need someone to haul the furniture to their home as they navigate life with a large family on a low income.
Both parents work outside the home however are not able to make ends meet without assistance. The children are amazing individuals with personalities as big as the day is long. They have been taught manners and social graces and are a joy to work alongside as we reunite them with their parents. The children’s ages range from newborn to 11 years of age (Boys’ ages are 11, 9, 6 and newborn; Girls’ ages are 5, 2 and 1.)
They currently are in need of a toddler bed for their 5 year old daughter and the parents need a queen size bed and bed frame.
They have no bedding for the beds, so queen, twin and toddler bed size bedding such as sheets, blankets and pillows are also needed. Plain colors for the bedding would be best instead of themed items. The 3 boys each have twin sized beds (bunk beds and a twin bed).
If someone is able to assist with moving the beds to their home that is also a great need to be filled.
This need can be met partially but selecting one item below. Every little bit helps a lot!!!
Filling this need will greatly reduce the stress and anxiety of both parents as they work together to finish their treatment plans in order to keep their family together in their home. The parents and child welfare greatly appreciate your help!!!

Please consider helping a mother and father with a new convertible car seat for their baby. Today is their baby girl's first birth day and she is in need of a bigger car seat. The parents have been progressing in their case and have been able to move to unsupervised family time with their daughter. They are also transporting her during their family time together. They were previously able to use the foster parents' car seat and were not prepared to have to buy a new one just yet. A new car seat is a big expense for them as they do not have much money. Thank you for your consideration.

A father needs some financial assistance with a Parenting Capacity Evaluation. This will ensure the safety and ability for a parent to be able to parent his children. This testing will ensure that the parent has an understanding of the children's needs, has the ability to create an emotionally safe environment and recommend any services needed to increase parenting abilities. The test is a large financial burden and this amount is the remaining amount that will help get the evaluation scheduled.
