Please help this single mother of 6. The mother was evicted after paying her rent up for several months and did not get her money back. This caused her to move into a 2 bed hotel with her and her children. While at the hotel her large suv was stolen and now she has no transportation to take her kids to school. I am asking for anyone who can help provide a rental car for the mom until she can hear back from the insurance company and/or save more money to get her own. I also am asking for someone to help with new hotel in a safer area for her and her kids for up to a month. Anything you can do for this family will be helpful!
A 3 month little boy was placed in the care of his grandparents while his mom works on getting necessary treatment. The home they live in had a roach infestation and although they have treated it multiple times they continue to have roaches. We would like to see if there is someone within the faith based community that works in pest control that be willing to donate their services to professionally treat the home.
The mother in this case is a single mom of 3 children under the age of 5, 2 girls and 1 boy. She was raised in the foster care system and has a very limited support system. She recently got a job after being unemployed for 2 months and moved into a new apartment and does not have a washer and dryer. She does not have extra income to use a laundry mat and has been washing the clothes in the sink for the time being. A washer and dryer would be extremely helpful to this family.
Kinship caregiver is maternal grandmother for 2 infants, they are 15 months old (M) and 4 months old (F). She is in need of a double stroller to get around with both children. 15 month old just started walking and is still wobbly, 4 month old just started rolling. Caregivers work full-time and children attend daycare through the week. They are currently working on their license for adoption and are very busy, they would benefit from continued community support.
Maternal grandmother is caring for two toddlers who were removed from the care of their parents. She desires to provide long term care for the children in her home. The grandmother has recently moved into a larger space to accommodate the children, but is in need of living room furniture. Due to financial restraints, the grandmother is unable to afford furniture. Assistance would be greatly appreciated.
This case involves 5 children who were placed with their maternal grandmother due to substance exposure to the twin babies. The babies were in the NICU and have not been cleared for daycare yet. The grandmother had to quit her job in order to meet the needs of the children. We are seeking cots or a trundle for the older children and a swing for the babies.
Mom is a single mother of 8 who is trying her hardest to provide for her children as she unexpectedly lost the family's primary source of income . Unfortunately, she is unable to provide her children an appropriate place to sleep at this time. Should this need be provided, it would allow for the children to get a good nights rest which will hopefully help them succeed in school, as well as in their peer relationships. The family could use either single beds or bunkbeds.
A grandmother is in need of 5lb extinguisher with the receipt to finish the licensing process to keep her granddaughter long term. The fees of licensing are a lot with her fixed income and it is the last piece to finish the process. Any help is appreciated!
Youth aging out of care/homeless in need of bedding for twin mattress. Bedding includes fitted sheet, top sheet, comforter, and two pillow cases. This bedding will allow the youth to gain access to a clean and safe living environment, the first step in the road to independency. Having a room and bedding that they can call their own will empower them to go out and reach their educational, vocational, and personal goals so they can transition into adulthood well.

This is a very young family with two young children. They became parents as teenagers and are currently working on getting on their feet and learning how to care for their own family. Father and mother both do not have positive family relationships and are essentially on their own to care for their children. They have a strong relationship with one another, and the young father is a hard worker, trying to support his family the best he can. The children had previously been accessing benefits under maternal grandmother's name, but mother and grandmother had a falling out, as grandmother was allowing her new boyfriend access to the children and mother acted protectively. This resulted in the family being removed from grandmother's benefits. The baby lost access to her formula and mother has been frantically working to get the family back on benefits and access the formula needed for her child. The baby has a sensitive stomach to lactose and requires Enfamil NeuroPro Gentlease formula, so she does not have constipation issues. I and the pediatrician were able to provide the family with a small amount of formula in the meantime while mother works on getting the family back on benefits, but they likely need a bit more formula while they wait for benefits to start again.
A single mother currently in transition with 6 children are in need of hygiene items, uniform clothing, and beds. The family is also in need of wrap-around services for this family, as one children has Downs Syndrome. All children are Dallas ISD students. The immediate needs are: Body Wash (Dove preferred: they are allergic to Dial), lotion, and other hygiene items; Uniform clothing (1 student needs the White shirt 10/12 and pants) & (1- male 3 Orange size 14/16 and pants ?). Providing these items will help the children attend school in proper attire and adequate hygiene. I would love to set up a time to talk about wrap around opportunities with the churches responding.
The family consists of mom (30), mom's partner (27), and the two children (10 and 9). The 10 year old boy has cerebral palsy and is in a wheelchair. The family had a bedbug outbreak a few months ago and has struggled to completely eradicate them. They have received help with extermination services during a prior cases and would benefit from another round of treatment to the home.

Our small school provides wrap around case management services to help our high school aged students graduate. We have a pregnant student living on her own who has very few items for herself and her "almost here" newborn. This young mom to be has faced trauma and difficulties in her young life that would debilitate most. She is very near to graduating and we want to support and honor her efforts as she tries to live independently. She needs a baby swing for the baby, but a full bed, bed linens, pots and pans, and flatware for herself
