We have a mother of an infant and two teenagers, all females who are currently homeless. They were forced to leave their previous living conditions quickly and could not gather many of their belongings. Mainly belonging to the mother and the infant. They are working with local agencies and have temporary housing at this time, but they need numerous items to get assistance in the month of December until the mother can locate daycare and employment. We hope that assisting with these items will allow the family to remain local and keep them warm in the winter months. The family needs 2-3 cans of Similac Total Comfort (the purple can), size 3 diapers, and wipes. The clothing request would be 7 size 9 mos: outfits and a winter coat for the infant. One of the teens is a female wearing size 3/5 in Junior's pants or size small in leggings and is requesting 3 pairs of pants and 3 shirts in a size small adult. The other female is a size 7 in Juniors or a size small in leggings and is requesting 3 pairs of pants/leggings and 3 shirts in a size medium. Mother is a size 5 in Juniors and is requesting 5 pairs of pants or leggings which would be a size small and 5 tops is a size medium.

Married couple with two young children (one is special needs) just lost a baby three hours after birth due to undetected health issue. They had to divert December rent to burial expenses of $4,000 (to add to what was donated). Mom is facing two additional surgeries this month. Both typically work full-time and need very little support, but they could use help with just half of their rent as they grieve and prepare to transition back to work. The total rent is $1,200. They have $600 to put toward the rent. They requested aid at a local agency and were denied as they received help with their electric bill last May.

Single mom needs furniture before her son can be released from a major university hospital at which he's scheduled for a bone marrow transplant. He suffers a rare genetic immunodeficiency disease. The boy's father refinanced the house to provide new flooring (sterile environment) but the family has no funds left for furniture. All the old furniture had to be thrown away due to risk of dust, dander and mold. All furniture must now be hard-surface and able to be sterilized. They need a desk, a desk chair, a recliner, end tables, a coffee table and a corner TV stand. All used furniture has to come from a smoke-free, pet-free home and not mildewed due to risk of infection for the boy.

A family is seeking a relationship with a local church as well as assistance with bed bugs. There are two children within the home that are under 18 and both are males.

I am currently working with a single mother of six children. The mother herself was in foster care as a child. She has lost her transportation due to the transmission going out on her vehicle, and the only available option is to call her former foster mother whenever she or the kids need a ride somewhere. The kids have access to the school bus but if one or more of them miss the bus on a day then mom has no way to get them to school. The school tries to provide transportation as best they can for the kids. Additionally, for any appointments, etc. the mother has no means for transportation. This request is to see if anyone out there might have a spare vehicle they aren't using that they could donate to this family. If not, then possibly a donation towards buying a car or repairing the old car if that is possible.

This is a single mother taking care of three children. She recently gave birth a few months ago to a boy. The mother works two jobs in hospitality, and she did not receive maternity care due to the industry. The mother stopped receiving child support from the two older children's father, and the other father is not present as such. The mother's son has early kidney disease and has been receiving care in MD as he was born out of state, and therefore she attends services there for the baby. The baby is having surgery this Friday, and the mother has been struggling with being able to work when her child is considered high medical needs. This mother's service providers put in a SSI application, however that won't take place till January of next year. This mother applied for fueling assistance but won't be accepted till the end of December. Her utility bill is 484.31 and she faces disconnection on 11/28/23. I requested that she contact all financial agencies in the area today, but it will take time for her to hear back from these providers. She needs help, she needs support, she needs a prayer and thoughts that everything will be okay with her son. Please consider helping this mother :)
