A couple took in their infant niece a few months ago. Their niece is growing fast and she is too big for her bassinette now and is in need of a crib. The caregivers are also in need of help purchasing the crib mattress and sheets. The caregivers are on one income at this time and are in the need financially of assistance with this need for their niece.
This family consists of a great grandmother who is on oxygen and mostly bed bound, and two grandmothers who are raising 4 children, ages 7-13 one with special needs who has limited verbal skills. The family lost the Great Grandfather in 2018 and has been struggling with grief, and cleaning out of his room which became infested with bed bugs and is now impacting the health and well being of the children and the family. The services requested will be able to chemically treat the home, heat treat the home and existing mattresses and provide mattress covers plus provide a year of warranty to make sure the pests are completely gone. We obtained 3 quotes for extermination services and the agency providing the services was the most affordable with the best coverage. The grandmother recently obtained a new job and is working hard to provide what she can for the family.
An aunt and uncle took in their triplet nieces and nephew to their home upon their release from the hospital after their birth. The babies are now 7 months old and are in the process of transitioning to their cribs. The caregivers are requesting assistance with crib mattresses and crib sheets for the babies. The family has had a lot of expenses in caring for the babies and are requesting help with the cost of crib mattresses and sheets. The donation of crib mattresses will allow the caregivers to continue to meet the other needs of the babies. The caregivers are in the process of getting licensed with their hopes of adopting the babies.
This 6-person family does the best they can on under $50,000 annual income. They are working on moving out of their current apartment which is in bad condition. During a storm, there was a bad leak which caused water damage in one of the bedrooms which destroyed the beds in the room. They had to throw the beds out and are currently sharing 2 mattresses for all members of the family. They do not want to replace the beds until they move but would like help with some air mattresses to improve the quality of life for their children until they move and can save money for beds.
This family has been working very hard to move into a nicer area for their children to have a safer environment and better quality of life, but they had very little time to move once they were approved for a new apartment and they ran out of time and had to leave some beds behind. Currently they have one mattress/box spring for the two boys to share, while mom and the two girls are sleeping on the floor. They planned to buy beds but then would have no money for Christmas. This is a very close, loving family, and their parents work a very strict schedule that allows them very little flexibility. They always make time for their family and provide what the children need even though they are strapped for time and money. I would love to provide help with beds for this family so they can have a nice holiday together.
Mom is a single mother and is currently impacted by the death of her youngest child. Mom is working full time but is working on getting better housing for the family to live in. Mom does not have a very strong support system. Children are in need of clothes for the upcoming winter.
Single Mother of 3 children. The children's father is deceased and so Mother is on her own. Mother is a great advocate for her children. She is working full time to provide what her children need but needs a bit of help. Family is needing living room furniture as there is only fold up lawn chairs in the home.
I have a wonderful sixteen-year-old girl that has been in care for one year. She finally has the opportunity to be placed with a family member instead of in a foster home. She was placed last Friday, and she looked so happy to be there. The family member was ready for her with her own room. However, when she went to get the queen size bed out of storage, it had been destroyed by the elements. The family member is a single person that would have to save up for many months to afford to pay for a new one. Right now, the sixteen-year-old is sleeping in the family member's bed and the family member is sleeping on the couch. This is not a long-term solution. We are requesting a new or used Queen size bed for a growing teenager. Thank you for your help in maintaining this family connection.
On September 22, 2023 the parents took their two children to Cook Children’s ER. Both the 1 year old child and the 4 year old child were seen. Unfortunately, due to a high deductible their insurance was not able to cover much of the cost of this visit. They were also denied any financial assistance from Cook Children’s Financial Counselors and their bill due is $6,000.00. We understand this is a large bill and we would like to request financial assistance to help the family start to chip away at the bill and give the family some financial relief.
The child in care has been returned to their family and is currently on a return to monitor. The mother is a single woman with 6 children in her home. The dryer has recently went out at the home and the mother is having to go to the laundry mat. The mother reported having to complete at least 8-10 loads of laundry during her last session. The mother is currently on crutches from an injury and needs assist with dryer repairs or a new or gently used dryer. This family would benefit from having a dryer in the home so the mother can focus on healing and on the children.

I have a single father who is caring for his 11 year old daughter. The daughter is disabled and was recently discharged from the hospital. The father and child were kicked out of their home and are currently living in a hotel. The father is behind on his hotel bill and owes $225. If he doesn't catch up on his bill they will be kicked out of the hotel and become homeless. His daughter is also required to drink Pediasure everyday due to failure to thrive but they ran out and the father doesn't have enough funds to purchase anymore. If she doesn't get the nutrition needed she can lose weight, which will place her back in the hospital. I am also requesting $60 to purchase two boxes of Pediasure that will last her a month. The daughter was recently approved for disability and the father will have additional income to care for her once payment begins.
Father is single parent and is currently not employed. He has little to no financial support. He needs 3 beds for his 3 children--ages 2yo, 6yo and 9yo. They also need a vacuum cleaner to help keep the flooring in the home clean.
A mother of 4 children (ages 3, 5, 8, and 13) was homeless and living in a shelter. She recently obtained housing but has no furniture.

The 13 year old male child would prefer any bedding provided be Dragon Ball Z. The 5 year old male child would prefer any bedding provided by Sponge Bob. The 8 year old male child would prefer any bedding provided to him by Dinosaurs or Spider man. The family is also in need of a stackable washer and dryer, couches, and dishes.
This family is receiving Section 8 housing and they have 2 windows broken. The landlord is threatening to evict the family if the windows are not repaired by November 13, 2023. One of the children in the home (17 years old) had a baby 2 weeks ago and the family has no where else to go if they are evicted. The request amount is approximate and be higher or lower. Updated on November 13, 2023 by an Agency Worker The mother in this case has found someone who can repair the windows for a cheaper price. She is now only needing $700. She has stated if she can get at least $500, she can likely come up with the rest on her own.
There is a single mom of two children, 4 year old girl and newborn girl. This mother recently obtained her own place and is in need of some items to help her keep the home picked up and organized as well as physical needs for the children. The 4yo wears a size 5t and could use some winter clothing. The newborn could also use the same.
Three girls have been returned home to their mother. Mom finally got them a place of their own and is in need of new beds for the girls. Due to switching jobs and other moving expenses, buying new beds is not in her budget. The girls have outgrown their current beds, and are in need of new ones to make them more comfortable in their new home.
