Stabilize Housing Insecurity
Normal Request
I have been working with this family for a variety of issues. Single mother has 7 children of her own under the age of 18. The father of the children has been incarcerated for years. This mom has worked one-two jobs for the majority of her adult life. This mom is a CNA. She is in charge of providing for all her children, and her grandchild. This mom does have family support in town and does ask them for help here and there. The Department at one point also helped her pay some of her past due bills. Mom is trying to secure a new home that is in her budget, but is finding it difficult to secure a deposit, when she has to provide for the rest of her household. One of her children are participating in services, she is involved with the courts and is doing her best to complete her services. The mom has applied for section 8, public housing, income related housing and is stuck on how to secure housing moving forth. THIS MOM has struggled paying her landlord, but also has complained that the landlord has not kept their part, because there is always something that needs constant fixing in the house. The mom has also gotten in touch with code enforcement a few times. Mom is overwhelmed about housing and keeping up. Mom needs community support. Mom has seen a house that is in her budget, but the deposit is too high, and she cannot afford to pay it. Anyone can support mom, help with the deposit?

Help Reunify a Bio Family
High Urgency Request
I am working with a mother whose 4-year-old daughter is in foster care. The mother has been completing her services and cooperating with the Department. We are unable to place the child with the mother, even to begin overnight visits until she has a place to live that is safe and appropriate for the child. The mother has just located an apartment that if she is able to pay the deposit, she can move into it on 9/1/23. The mother is able to pay some towards the deposit with income from her two jobs, but cannot afford the full amount. I am requesting help with the remainder of the deposit in order for the mother to be able to move in on 9/1. This will allow overnight visits to begin and is one step closer to her daughter returning home! Thank you for your consideration.
