I have a combined family who recently lost their home and everything in it due to a fire a few months ago. The family had to relocate to a smaller house and is struggling to make ends meet. All together there are 6 children living in the home and 3 adults. The family was able to get together some money for furniture however they are currently still trying to gather the rest of the furniture they need. The family has asked me to get help with 2 twin beds with sheets (or a bunk bed - whatever is able to happen) as space is limited in the new home, 3 dressers for the children and a couch. The family is thankful for whatever can be given to help ease the burden while they work on rebuilding their other home while paying for the current home they are in. By providing this family with the necessities they need, this will help strengthen them and ease the financial burden they are faced with. Not only will it help the adults, the children will be able to place their clothing in dressers to keep them clean and organized while giving them a more comfortable place to sleep.

Normal Request
We have a mandated preventive services case with 4 young girls ages 10 and under. The family has requested a DVD player, or possible firestick or roku USB plug-in. The family does not have cable TV, and do not have the ability to play their DVD's (broken unit). Mom is home with the children and is requesting the item to improve her mental well-being. They do have home internet through a reduced/free internet program.

High Urgency Request
We have a mandated services case where the family lives in an upstairs, attic-like space in a large house. Other members of the house eat the family's food, as the refrigerator is in a common space. This often leads to the family running out of their SNAP benefits. The family needs a small fridge/freezer combo to store items like meat and fresh dairy. The fridge must be small enough to bring up 3 flights of stairs, and fit in the cramped living quarters. Additionally, the family has a one-year old child who drinks a tremendous amount of whole milk.
