This is a first-time foster care placement for a sweet family in Littleton. The foster boys are 5weeks old and 14months old. The 14month old is being d/c'd from the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Today. This couple is scrambling to get all necessary items for these two boys' care. Would you be willing to come alongside them in the purchase of a baby bathtub? They would be so very grateful for your support as they are working out all emotional and physical detail needs for these two littles.
We have a gently used baby bathtub we are happy to provide this family. In addition, we have diapers and wipes they are welcome to have. Additionally, we have an abundance of gently used infant clothing, size Newborn to 2T. Please have the client call the Colorado Christian Services office to arrange a time to "shop" for free in our boutique-style Community Resource Room.

We are reaching out to the amazing CarePortal Community with a request to support three children and their single foster mom. On Friday, our foster mom said yes to a sibling group of three. They were at her home within a couple of hours with very few belongings of their own and by the next day it was clear that the children had come to the home with lice and severely matted hair. The foster mom sprung into action but was met with some astronomical fees that she was not anticipating. We are estimating that each child's (3 total) treatment and evaluation of lice will cost about $270 each and with three children it would be an incredible blessing to come along side this mom and lessen that burden. If you can contribute any amount to these kids and the foster mom who has truly stepped up in so many ways to keep these kids together AND get them the care they need it would be greatly appreciated!
Navigator is working with a single mother of 2 boys who is currently struggling financially. Client needs coats, hats and gloves for her 2 sons. Gently used coats are acceptable or maybe gift cards to help the family purchase coats for the kids. The kids are in kids sizes 9 and 7. I believe these are size mediums.

This kinship caregiver is a single grandmother. She and two of the kids have some health issues that is making this a high need request. The family has been having issues with mice in the home! The kids are scared and the grandmother is worried about the kids and her getting sick from the droppings. They have tried putting out their own traps and are not having success. The grandmother contacted an exterminator for a quote for them to come and help. This grandmother struggles to make ends meet as is, so this kind of expense is not possible for her.

Hello! I have a 16 year old male that has been struggling to get to school and has diabetes. The teen has an extensive history of trauma, as his dad passed away of alcoholism and his mother is currently homeless and struggling with substance abuse. The teen is currently living with a family friend that took him in to avoid possible foster care placement, and also has children of her own. The teen has been saving money to get a car for reliable transportation to school, and needs $200 more dollars to purchase the car. If he were to walk to school, it would take him about an hour, and this poses a risk for him passing out due to his diabetes. His caregiver leaves early in the morning for work, and is unable to drive him to school. The teen is wanting to get back on track with his academics and be the first one in his family to graduate from high school. We would greatly appreciate the remaining $200 for the teen to be able to purchase a car to get to school. Thank you!!
