Normal Request
We began working with a family who relocated from Douglas to Arapahoe County. The family had been living in a hotel full time and after overcoming many obstacles, were recently able to move in to their own apartment. The three siblings (ages 9, 7, and 5) are currently sharing one mattress and we are hoping to raise funds to obtain two additional twin mattresses and frames to match the one the siblings are currently sharing. Your consideration is greatly appreciated! Links for the requested mattresses and frames are included below for reference:

High Urgency Request
Single kinship caregiver has been caring for foster youth for a couple of months. Foster youth is disabled and requires 24/7 care which means the caregiver is unable to work. She has fallen behind in rent and received an eviction notice. She will be certified in the next month or two which will help, and services will soon be in place for the foster youth so she can return to work. However, getting through this initial hump has been very difficult. We are trying to help this caregiver avoid eviction and maintain this placement.

This family has recently encountered some hardships when dad was in a motorcycle accident that caused severe injury. He is a professional mechanic and he won't be able to work for several months, causing the family a severe financial distress.

This family has put some incredibly hard work with the Department over the past few years in order to regain custody of their children and they have successfully finished! The family is hoping to move in order to "start fresh" and be able to give their children the ability to form new, healthy friendships and start school with a clean slate. The family could benefit from a Walmart gift-card in their quest to move, as it would help with both grocery and gas expenses during this time. They are planning on moving on June 1st so any help in their new journey back together as a family will be outstanding! They have also been given additional community resources for groceries at local pop-up food markets as an on going way to help them feel supported.

Normal Request
This request impacts multiple families.

For more than 35 years, For The Children has been working through local churches to create life-changing moments for children in foster care (age 6 to 12) who have experienced relational trauma by equipping local churches to implement two signature programs: Royal Family KIDS Camp (RFKC) & Royal Family KIDS Mentoring. This year RFKC Arvada will host its 30th camp! It is a a week where kids experience what it's like to be a kid, to be able to trust adults through the volunteers, which they haven't been able to do in their short lives, try confidence-building activities that build their self-esteem, and learn and experience that they are valued and treasured and most importantly that they are loved so much by their heavenly Father. We have kids attending from Jefferson, Adams, Arapahoe, Denver and Douglas Counties. We have a specific need for at least 4 women and 3 men volunteers. Special Instructions: Camp is 6/26-7/1 and is an overnight camp. Volunteers must complete training on Fri (6/3) 6:30 - 9:00 pm and Sat (6/4) 9 am- 4 pm, an online application and background check.

Kathy: I don't understand this request. We're able to provide the funding requested, but not volunteer our time. Is this of value? If so, how do we do it without indicating we can volunteer time?

High Urgency Request
This large family has very limited resources and have 3 children in need of transitional car seats as they have grown out of what they had. Another barrier for this family is that one child is autistic and has sensory issues so they struggle to keep her from tearing it up when she's in the car. Ideally, they need the type of car seat that will grow with each child so they do not have to face replacing them again. Please see a suggested car seat below. Please note that due to safety regulations, we are unable to accept used car seats and this donation must be purchased brand new. Thank you for your consideration in helping this family in being able to safely transport their children. **Please note this car seat is available via Target or Amazon as well**

We are currently working with a kinship family who are currently caring for a sibling set, one 7 year old boy they have adopted and his 3 year old sister who is currently in foster care with this child. Both children have high behavioral needs and require extra support and attention. The family is right on the cut off line to access benefits, however; they still have a significant need of financial support to care for 2 high needs children's. The kinship providers would like to work full-time; however, the need for child care for the 3 year-old prevents the mother from being able to work full-time. She was able to locate a summer program for her to attend until she starts preschool in the fall; however, the cost would be a significant strain on their finances. If there is any help the community could provide to assist with covering the cost of this camp, this would allow for the parents to work full-time and provide for their families needs. The camp costs $2,000 for full day camp for 8 weeks. The family is greatly appreciative of any amount to help cover the cost of the camp.

The children were moved out of their father's home and he will not provide them with any information so that they can activate their phones under their mom's name. The two kids are teenagers and living with their grandmother. It would be beneficial for them to have their phones so that they can stay in communication with their grandmother and mom who lives out of state. New phones would help significantly so mother can put the phone plans under her name.

Help Support a Youth Aging Out

Normal Need
We received a request from Colorado Kids Belong to create Thanksgiving baskets for kids about to age out of foster care. This is their request: Dream Makers is a program of America’s Kids Belong. Dream Makers serves youth who have aged out of foster care or are likely to age out in the near future. Every year 23,000 teens exit the foster care system without a family to help them transition into adulthood. These youth were removed from their families, having experienced neglect, abuse, or abandonment. Dream Makers helps remove barriers that stand in the way of the empowered, connected lives these youth dream of having. The Dream Makers project draws a community around youth who have no family to help them navigate the financial challenges of young adulthood like renting an apartment, getting their first car, clothes for a new job, or locating a reasonably priced laptop for school. The holidays can be a lonely time for the youth when they don't have a family to go visit during the holidays. In past years Dream Makers has partnered with the county, local churches, and local organizations to host a Thanksgiving meal event for the youth. At that event last year the youth were so touched that people would do so many nice things for them and serve them. One of the youth was heard saying, "I forgot what Thanksgiving tasted like." Due to limitations this year we are unable to host a meal. We are asking that the community continue to show love and service to our youth by donating a Thanksgiving basket. Below is the list of what is needed in a Thanksgiving basket.
