I am currently working with a mother of two with severe mental health issues. She has been unable to work and owes $2200 for her gas bill. They turned off her gas this week and will not turn it back on until she pays $1250. We were able to find a community resource that will pay $500 if we are able to come up with the remaining $750. The mother is working to get into vocational rehab at this time as well as additional mental health services. The gas in her home is for her stove, hot water heater, and heat. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you for considering this request and for all your support in our community!

N is a 15-year-old female and her sister, P, is a 14-year-old female. They are now living with their sister and are happy to be able to be together. Unfortunately, their mother passed away and their dad is in prison. They are so blessed to be able to live with their older sister. Their sister has such a big heart, she is also a kinship placement for 3 younger kids also. It would be such a wonderful help to this family if we could find some way to give them new or gently used beds and some clothing for the two teenagers. They could use either 2 twin beds or a bunkbed set, they will be grateful for whatever can be provided so the teens have a bed to sleep in. Thank you for anything that you can help with. Box springs are only needed if the bed frame requires it.

Our older youth was in florida when she was pulled over for driving without headlights on, and driving without a license. She was driving to pick up her 6 month old daughter from the person who was watching her. This youth has been trying to work and get the money to pay for the tickets but the cost of having her daughter, and getting her the items that she needs comes first. The tickets are $113 and $166. we are desperately trying to help her pay this so that she does not get a warrant issued for not paying the fines. She has been an amazing mother to her daughter, and this has been a stressful situation for her.

I have a family of 4 that is going through a tough time financially & could use a new microwave. The microwave they have now is broken & a new microwave could help the family with quick meals to help the kids before going to school and after. Once this need is met, the family will have ways for the kids to warm something up in a timely manner if they need to.

This boy has been in care since he was 17 months old, and he will be turning 5 in August. He will be starting kindergarten in the fall, as his twin brother's needs can be better accommodated by the school district than by their preschool. His occupational therapist has recommended a summer therapy group for kindergarten readiness, with focus on social interactions, visual motor, fine motor, gross motor, and cognitive activities. This group is also being recommended for his twin brother, which has been submitted separately.
