High Urgency Request
Hello! I have a single grandmother that is currently caring for her 3 year old granddaughter given that the 3 year old's parents are struggle with substance abuse. We were able to get child care set up, but prior she had to pay the first day for the child. The grandmother is on a tight budget and especially now that she is the primary caregiver of her granddaughter. She would really appreciate the help with a $130 visa gift card that was the cost of daycare for one day with the child. Thank you!

Single father or 4 is struggling with transportation needs. He recently lost his transportation because the car he drove had repairs that were more expensive then the car was worth. He works independently and needs to be able to have his tools with him and drive to the locations where he finds work. He has a resource where he can buy a used car for a very affordable price but he needs help with a down payment.

Critical Request
Navigator is working with a single mother of 2 boys who is currently struggling financially. Client needs coats, hats and gloves for her 2 sons. Gently used coats are acceptable or maybe gift cards to help the family purchase coats for the kids. The kids are in kids sizes 9 and 7. I believe these are size mediums.

Good afternoon, I have a family that is requesting two playpens, and one crib. The family resides in a two bedroom home, and they are all sharing one room. The playpen that the family currently has is ripped. Two adults and four children under the age of 5 reside in the home. I have seen these items on on Amazon for the below price, but they are available at many of the retail stores.

I have a biological mother who attends weekly family time sessions with her daughter who is 11 and treatment. She is working her treatment plan in hopes of being reunified with her daughter. She is currently homeless but just got a job at a Veterinary Office. She can only work so many hours a week due to a car accident that has left her with pain. She has disability pending. This mom has a car that needs emissions and tags. She does not have the money for this. She could use an American Express gift card or cash to help her with these two things. Updated on December 06, 2023 by an Agency Worker
Biomother is still in need of assistance with these two needs. Any help would be much appreciated. She is trying really hard to do everything she can to be reunified with her daughter.

This family is struggling with homelessness. The family consist of a single mother and three younger children. The family was previously staying at a shelter but was kicked out for not making it back in time in the evening due to vehicle issues. The mother is trying to find another shelter to stay at and has applied to numerous housing resources and all of them are on waitlist. Unfortunately the mother's only other choice is to sleep in the car with the children until she can find another shelter. The family is in need of sleeping bags that are rated for negative degrees to help keep them warm overnight. I think they would only need two sleeping bags as two of the children can share and the mother can share with one of the children as well. I found a sleeping bag on Amazon for $179 called ALPS OutdoorZ Sleeping-Bags Redwood -25.

This family consist of a single mother caring for four children. The mother is struggling with some of the children's behaviors. The children have been sneaking out of the home at night. Mom is doing everything she can to get the behaviors under control with services such as therapy. The mom feels that something that could help ensure the children are staying at home and not sneaking out in the middle of the night is having chimes on all the doors and windows. The mother needs support in getting these chimes. There are at least three doors that need a chime and 6 windows that need chimes.
