Support an Expecting Mom and Her Unborn Baby

Normal Request
I have a pregnant mom sleeping on an air mattress and could really use better support as she is 7 months pregnant. If she couldn't get a full-size bed, I am sure she would be happy with a twin. She is single with 3 other children and has worked very hard to get where she is right now. She is currently pregnant with a baby girl. She could use anything to help her get prepared for her arrival.

Normal Request
A 17-year-old boy who lives with his elderly maternal grandmother needs to obtain his driver's license. He is a very responsible teenager who goes to school regularly, has a job, is involved in multiple sports, and uses his extra time to spend it with his family. He not only needs his driver's license so that he step into adulthood properly, but he also wants to be able to visit his parents who don't live close, be able to go to school/games/work without delay waiting on other people, and be able to get his sister to and from school and other services she needs because she also lives with her paternal grandmother and she works hours that sometimes interfere with getting her to and from school. Link to what the youth is requesting:

Help Preserve a Kinship Placement

Normal Request
A kinship caregiver took on the needs of a 2-year-old little boy in order to keep him with his older sibling. This kinship caregiver took in these kids with a house full of kids of her own already. She is limited on space and is having kids share beds right now. Due to the increase in kids, funds are allocated to maintain the basic needs and function of the family, food, and education. She is looking at obtaining a bunk bed to help our kids have their own bed and be able to feel like individuals and sleep well at night. This will help immensely and she will be grateful for any help.

Critical Request
I have a single mother with 5 children, ranging from high school age through elementary age. The family is currently living in their car, and with this Texas heat I am worried about them being able to keep cool. Mom has been trying to get the children to stay at friends' houses for relief. Mother has been calling shelters daily, but her two oldest children are males in highschool and the shelters will not allow them to stay in the women and children's shelter. Or the shelter will tell Mother that she has too many children, and the shelter does not have enough beds for them. There is a weekly hotel nearby, for $550 the week or $2,200 for the month. Any amount of assistance would be appreciated. The number one need is for stable housing for this family. Do any churches have an apartment or a space they family could live in until Mom is able to get on her feet?
