Help Preserve a Kinship Placement
4
Normal Request
There is a husband and a wife that agreed to take in all five of the wife's grandchildren. Two of the grandchildren aren't biologically related to her, but despite that she was more than willing to take in all five children so that the siblings wouldn't be separated. The family has been able to provide these children with all of the items that they need with no notice of these children coming into care and needing placement. The three youngest children have a bedroom with a closet and dresser for their belongings to go. But the two oldest don't have a dresser for their clothes yet. We are asking for someone to be able to donate a dresser for the two older girls so that they will have a place for their clothes to go. Having this dresser provided will bring even more stability into their lives as they are making the transition to living with their grandparents. This will also help make getting ready into the morning for school an easier and normal process. Help would be truly appreciated!

Critical Request
The father in this case is a former addict and is trying to reintegrate with his children with very little supports to rely on. He has been working on his mental health, maintaining employment at a local production factory, and maintaining his sobriety. He has been jumping through all of these hoops all while maintaining as good a relationship with his 4 children as he can. His ex-wife has been less than willing to work with this agency as well to reintegrate with her children, so in this case the father is doing this alone. The two smallest children have special needs and quite a lot of behavioral issues. At this time, the father needs help on a security deposit for a residence. Our agency is able to help with half of this need, but there is a total need of $1,100 to help make this happen. The father did not want to ask for assistance, but has finally agreed to seek help for this substantial amount. This agency has plans to immediately work towards overnight visits with the intent of reintegration soon after should he be able to move into this residence. Thank you for any and all assistance.

This family of 6, are very hard working but they don't have some basic necessities, such as beds. At this time they are sleeping on the floor and still managing to work and go to school every day, having beds would really make a difference their daily lives, especially for the children to have beds to sleep in.

I have a single mom in need of assistance with obtaining a sturdy garment/ clothing rack (that is enclosed/ can be covered) to store her clothing. Mom and her youngest rent a bedroom with limited closet space. Soon her other child will be moving in with her, which will make things a little tight on space in the bedroom. Her roommates have approved her putting a garment rack outside of her bedroom door so she can have space to fit clothing. The family will appreciate any donation- new or used. It appears garment racks range from $15 to $60.

A single mother and her 3 year old daughter are in temporary housing due to a fire at their home. The family is struggling financially and the mother is trying to get back on her feet. The 3 year old needs clothing and mom also needs assistance for Christmas. A gift card to Walmart or Target would help cover Christmas. The 3 year old wears size 6/7 girls, and loves bright colors. Shoe size is size 11. Thank you!

I am working with a single mom and her 2 children who are living in a trailer. Mom struggles financially and is on a tight budget.The childrens father is involved periodically but does not help mom fianancially. Mom's trailer is older and has needed a number of repairs since she moved in. Most of her monthly income goes to cover lot rent for the trailer. At this time, this is their only housing option. Mom recently got water again, however the hot water tank on the trailer is not working so they do not have any hot water. I got an estimate on a new tank and installation from a plumber that is sadly higher than I expected. The water heater has a whole in it and needs to be replaced at a cost of $600. The labor cost is $250. I am putting in a request for help with any part of this cost. I will look for other funding resources to cover the amount that is left. I am appreciative of any help with this.

A caregiver needs help keeping her phone line turned on to remain in touch with her children while at work. Recently, one of her children has been struggling with some behaviors that require extra supervision. She had to call off work several times to remain with her child and has fallen behind on bills. Now she is able to return to work, but she needs to prioritize her phone so her child or the adult who is supervising can always reach her. Helping meet this request will help a caregiver be able to support her child and keep the family safe.

This family is currently facing financial hardship due to being a single-income household, as mom has been facing some health issues. They're dealing with food insecurity and struggling to pay utility bills, as well as recently having to pay for bed bug treatment for the home. They already receive food stamps and utilize community resources (e.g., Just Food) when they can. I think they'll take any amount of relief they can get, and in any form, whether it's gas cards so they can get to work, gift cards for the grocery store, cash reimbursement for bed bug treatment, etc. In addition, the family is facing financial hardship to provide Christmas gifts. Thank you!

She did try breast feeding but her body has not been producing milk. Mom is needing Similac 360 total care formula. I have included the following link for this formula found at the Target in Mission, which is right next door to our office: Thank you for your support of mom and baby!
