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.
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.

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.
