I am working with a youth who has intellectual disabilities. When she gets upset, she has been struggling to calm down. Her therapist thinks it would be helpful to set up a calming corner with comforting and sensory dampening items that will help her calm down and start to teach her the skills she needs to be able to self-regulate her emotions. The therapist feels that a 20 LB weighted blanket and some noise reduction earplugs would be very helpful for this space. The noise reducing ear plugs would also be used when this youth is out in the community learning skills like grocery shopping, so she would need to be able to hear someone talking to her when wearing them.

The family is going to have their electric cut off due to an outstanding balance. The mom paid the minimum due but still needs 195.00 paid to be current. The mother is working three jobs to try to make ends meet. She recently had to turn down a better paying job to be able to coordinate pick up of her children from school and child care. The family recently started trial reunification and needs help getting on her feet while taking on her three children in her home.

I have a family of five on my caseload that recently moved into their own rental home. The parents have been working very hard to be able to provide their three children with a space of their own. The family is needing a couple common household things, such as a washer and dryer, bed frames and mattresses. The family was previously staying with other family members, so they did not have furniture or appliances of their own to take with them. The family would be appreciative and grateful for any help they can get. The parents are both working full time jobs while also attending all of their required services.

Bio mother is living in a camper trailer while she waits for housing to become available. The bio mom is close to starting reunification with her children. However, her water heater has broken and is unrepairable. An electric water heater would allow her to better manage her electricity usage and it would be hot water on demand rather than a tank which could potentially leak again. She is disabled and unable to work more than a few hours a day. She has a pending disability claim with social security but that is not a fast process. CWS Hutchins has found a unit on Ace Hardware website EcoSmart 2.6gallon 1440 watt electric water heater for 189.99.

A developmentally delayed 17-year-old girl who lives in a group home would like a TV and DVD player for her bedroom. Watching TV is a positive coping mechanism as it helps her relax by refocusing her attention. Having a TV in her own room would allow her to avoid arguments with the other girls over the communal TV and give her more of an incentive to disengage and regulate herself in her room when she's overstimulated by the activity in the home instead of becoming reactive in a negative manner.
At the group home, there is no cable or streaming capabilities, hence the need for a DVD player. We've included links for combo TV/DVD players below to simplify her setup but would accept separate devices as well. The primary limitation is that the size of the TV cannot exceed 32".

A set of grandparents are currently caring for their grandchild due to various concerns for the child in the care of their parents. The grandparents are needing a crib for the child as the parents did not provide them with one. The grandparents do not need to be burdened with the extra cost if child welfare and the Careportal can assist them with this.
