Looking for a team of volunteers to assist a single mom who has a school age child with cleaning, organizing and packing so they are able to relocate closer to family. Single mom went out of state briefly to get things prepared for her move upon her return she discovered someone unknown had stayed in her place due to a faulty locking back door and that the person had went through her already packed belongings and left the place a mess. Assisting this parent would lessen the stress of moving and help her get back on her timetable to relocate within the month of July.

High Urgency Request
A tablet is a needed item for one of the children as they have endured an immense amount of DV and as of a result, the child is participating in therapy to digest some of the trauma. Mom's car recently broke down and is unable to take bus transportation due to the safety concerns this resulted to therapy for the child having to move virtually. The child has been unable to attend therapy because the family does not have a electronic device that has a camera/video function working. Any household items are also need and appreciated for Mom and the children (ages 3, 4 and 6). We have recently been able to locate a home that is safe and stable and our hope is that this can be something long term. Mom and the children will move into today (6/17) and have no furniture, cleaning items, curtains, bedsheets, decor, or really anything. We will take anything and everything to help this location feel like home for mom and the children. Anything new or gently used would be appreciated, thank you.

Help Preserve a Kinship Placement

Normal Request
This child's father and mother recently abandoned him. His mother's friend recently allowed him to stay in her home and filed for legal guardianship of him. Because this was unexpected, the care provider is struggling to buy clothes for him. This child's biological parents have attempted to be located but they will not cooperate with the Department. The father was evicted from their home and all their stuff was on the front lawn so this child doesn't have much of his belongings at the care providers home. The care provider now has legal fees on top of caring for an additional household member and would benefit from the help of a gift card to buy clothes for the child.

This grandmother is caring for her two grandchildren, ages 3 and 5. They share a small space together and she is in need of storage space to help organize their toys/clothes/belongings. This family would benefit from a few plastic bins to mitigate the concern for a clean/safe place for her grandchildren to play. This would also help teach the children about the responsibility of cleaning up after themselves, which will be beneficial as they get older and are in a collaborative school environment. Plastic Tote (similar in size):

Sharon: We can look into the TANF program to see if they would be eligible to have the car repair taken care of. We have limited funds left, but can do a quick turn around if they are eligible. Send them our way if you think it would be a good fit.

We are requesting support for a kinship provider that took in her grandson who is an adorable 3-month-old baby boy. This grandma needed to take in her grandson on a very short notice and she is struggling to get formula and baby items needed. They have gone to churches to wait in line for formula and is need of help. Grandma drives a long distance to work and has taken off to meet the baby's needs. She is asking for help with gas and gift cards for King Soopers would be the most helpful as it will help with food and gas. The provider drives a jeep, so it takes almost $100 to fill up. The provider is working towards getting certified and doing the online trainings and classes and this is taking up her time away from work. A little help goes a long way. we are grateful for any help.

We are requesting support for a 3 year old girl who has been in the care of her aunt for about a year now due to ongoing substance use and general absence by the parents. The aunt has been doing an amazing job taking care of her niece, all on her own and has reached out for the first time for a "Hand Up'. She is wanting to get some new summer clothing as well as a new stroller since that’s something her niece has never had. A Target gift card in any amount would be greatly appreciated as we try to help this aunt and show support, now that she needs help. She’s so much this past year all on her own. Thank you.

We are requesting support for a 10 year old boy that has been in the care of his grandmother for over a year now due to ongoing substance use and incarceration by the parents. The grandmother has been doing an amazing job taking care of her grandson all on her own and has reached out for the first time for some support. She has been working extra hours to make sure her grandson can participate in after-school sports as that is the one thing he absolutely adores, but as many of you know, it can get very expensive. We are hoping to get her some gift cards to offset the cost of those activities. King Soopers/Walmart/or Target gift cards in any amount would be greatly appreciated as we try to help this grandmother and show our appreciation for everything she’s done this past year all on her own. Thank you.

The car of a single kinship caregiver of a four year old child recently broke down. It was undrivable. It was repaired today at Dakota Ridge Automotive for rear brake replacement. The cost is $499.49. It would be very helpful to this kin provider to have help with payment at any sum paid (all or a portion) directly to the Automotive Center or in the form of gift cards to reimburse her to help with other expenses (groceries, gas, etc) that she will be unable to cover if she pays for the car repairs.

Child does not have many toys that she can access. Provider made suggestions for the request for these purposes: "These books have vibrant colors and strong visual support. The text is repetitive and predictable for (child). There are sliding doors throughout the book, which will keep (child) engaged and she make predictions about what comes next. Colors can be targeted as well as body parts. Rhyming can also be targeted as well." "The lift and flap books and the wooden latch puzzles are sturdy, interactive and engaging for (child). The colorful pictures provide great visual support to boost receptive and expressive language. Action words, nouns, concepts (locative, sequential), etc can be targeted when playing with these. (child) can follow directions (open the....close the....find the....point to....) and take turns with a relative who plays with her." Welcome to the Zoo Book: Brown Bear book: Melissa and Doug puzzle: Second Need Parent would like to take child to community connections like the Library for story time or Monkey Business for toddler playtime.
