This request is for a single mother who is in need of a VISA gift card to assist with clothes for her three children between the ages of 6-12. She is currently doubled up staying with a friend while seeking housing. She is currently looking for employment and has been on several interviews. She is working with the Department to obtain daycare for her children so she can work and attend her medical appointments. Since she has had to move around several times due to unforeseen circumstances the children have been unable to take all of their belongings. Any donations towards this request would be greatly appreciated.

This family consists of a mother and her two sons, ages two and ten, as well as a stepfather. This family is in need of big support at this time. The family has no insurance, and the ten-year-old son has never seen a doctor or dentist. The child recently saw a dentist through the school and found out that he has ten abscessed teeth and needs a lot of dental work done. The child went to the dentist to estimate the work needed and the total cost is $6697, not including the two root canals he will have to be referred out to get. He will need seven fillings, two extractions, and two crowns following the root canals. Due to the family not having insurance any and all help would be very beneficial to them. The child is having a very hard time sleeping and now talking due to the pain in his mouth. Since this is such a big request we understand that assistance can come from multiple sources.

I am working with a family that has been working with the Department for several years. This family has a history of substance abuse and domestic violence. Currently, the mother and father are involved in several services to maintain sobriety and develop positive relationship skills. The mother's cell phone is no longer working effectively - this makes it difficult to communicate with service providers and with the Department. I am hoping to help her get a new phone to assist with this communication. There are several available at Walmart at various prices - the average price was around $80. Additionally, phone cards come in a range of prices.
This mother is also in search of spiritual connection and community, so she would be very open to forming a relationship with the helping church.

Before I commit to meeting this need, I'd like to speak with a guy in our church that owns a plumbing business to see what his availability is. I don't want to commit to it if he's not available in a reasonable amount of time, which would keep someone else from meeting the need sooner. I've contacted him by text and waiting to hear back.

I've heard back from the plumber and he's planning to look at the problem and give me an estimate on the repair on Monday, March 20. That's the earliest he could work me in. I will need address and contact information for the family to pass along to him. If there's someone available to help meet the need sooner than Monday, let me know. I'm still willing to assist with the cost either way.
Jerry Hatcher at Wellspring has offered to assist financially, if needed.
I'll get the quote Monday for the repair and let the team know if we can take care of it all, or if we need assistance.

The plumber was able to resolve the problem today and the family now has running water! He's hasn't given me the price yet but is going to send the invoice directly to Rainbow Forest Baptist Church.
There is a boy who attends Lord Botetourt High School, 18 years old, a senior and has a job. He would like to get his license, so that he can drive himself to and from work and school. He lives with his grandmother who also works, making transportation difficult. The family does not have the extra income to help pay for him to take behind the wheel to get his license. He would love help with obtaining this.

I am working with a grandmother and grandfather caring for their 8 year old granddaughter. The grandmother has expressed that her granddaughter would greatly benefit from a mentor who could build a positive relationship. The granddaughter has several areas of interest that a mentor could share: crafts, crochet, soccer, music/singing/dancing, gymnastics. The grandmother would be thankful to have a young female give whatever time they have available to her granddaughter, however a tentative amount of time that could be expected is 4-6 hours a month. A firm schedule would be developed between the mentor and grandmother.

When their niece and nephew came into foster care, this aunt and uncle willingly took in the children. The aunt and uncle live outside of Richmond, Virginia, and due to the children's parents not having transportation, the aunt and uncle have been transporting the children to Roanoke from the Richmond area for visits with their parents. The aunt and uncle have run into some issues with their vehicle that need to be fixed in order for them to continue to provide safe and reliable transportation for the children to see their mom and dad. Regular visits are crucial to help achieve the goal of reunification with the children's parents, and the family does not want transportation issues to be a barrier to return home. The aunt and uncle have been quoted $527.73 for vehicle repairs. They are unable to pay the money out-of-pocket and are looking for help in getting the vehicle fixed.

I am working with a single father of two biological sons. The man receives disability due to a back injury. He has very limited income. This man's sister became ill and was not able to care for her teenage son. This man, who I will now call Uncle, took in his 15 year old nephew. In September 2022, the boy's mother passed away. Uncle has cared for the child since and wants to continue to do so. The child has been sleeping on the couch or a blow up air mattress in the living room. Uncle states that he would love a sleeper sofa that the child could sleep on. Additionally, he would need sheets to fit the mattress for the pull out as well as a blanket/comforter and pillows.
