Bowman High School is need of Back to school supplies for the coming school year. We would love if one of our community partners would help us with a back to school drive. We are in need of Backpacks- mostly black and blue or solid neutral colors- we serve Jr and Seniors. We can always use additional school supplies- Pens, Pencils, notebooks, folders, highlighters etc. We are a Title one school and many of our families cannot afford to buy much in the way of supplies for back to school. Any partnership would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Careportal Family! Support is being requested on behalf of an 18 year old youth who is graduating from Antelope Valley High School this coming week! The youth has been in and out of the child welfare system since he was about 2 years old, due to issues of parental substance abuse and mental health. The youth has faced many challenges through navigating the system, but has managed to successfully graduate high school, and obtain stable housing. He is currently renting a room in a home, and is in need of a new bed. He is looking for a full or queen sized bed and mattress, as what he currently has is too small as he is quite tall. The youth plans to begin working and is considering enrolling in junior college as well in the fall. Any support provided is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

There is a mother of two teenagers, Female age 14 and a male age, 16. The mother is struggling with relocating to San Bernardino area. The mother has found section 8 housing in Victorville and is in need of financial assistance with the deposit to move in. The reason I am requesting this need to be filled is that the mother cannot financially afford the move-in deposit $1000. The CSW has explored other DCFS options for funding and in-kind donations. This need is being requested through the Care Portal because unfortunately DCFS does not provide this item, or requests can take up to 8-10 weeks. The mother has complied with her case plan goals and appears to be very happy that the children have been placed in her care. The mother provides the best for her children as she can. During my time with the family and the mother, she has been able to complete her parenting class, make sure that the children attend therapy and most of all she has been able to provide a loving home for her and the kids. CSW has been able to identify the following strengths for the mother: CAREPORTAL REFERRAL (1) Mother able to provide a safe and loving environment for her two children. (2) The mother is resourceful when it comes to her children. For these reasons, I am advocating for the mother to have the need met.
There is a non-minor dependent (NMD) male 19 years of age in need of a laptop. The NMD has been attempting to complete his high school coursework via phone but has not been successful to completing assignments consistently due to the device not being operable for classwork assignments. Although, the NMD is having this challenge, he is meeting the case plan goals and is enrolled in continuation school. The youth also desires to obtain a driver’s license and seek employment. During my work with youth I have identified the following strengths: hard working, respectful, diligent, and respectful. This need is critical to ensuring that the youth can complete high school. This need is being requested through Care Portal because unfortunately DCFS does not provide this item. The cost of the laptop is $300.
There is a Non-Minor Dependent (NMD) in need of refrigerator and window repair. The NMD reported her freezer is still working just fine, however the refrigerator is no longer keeping items cold. The NMD also has a front window that was broken due to intimate partner violence. During these cold winter moths it decreases her ability to keep the home warm for herself and her daughter. The NMD has been applying for employment but has not been successful. The NMD does not have enough income to cover expenses beyond the basic needs of her household. Although, the NMD is having that challenge, the NMD is meeting the case plan goals/court orders and is enrolled Adult Education. Furthermore, the NMD is committed to maintaining custody of her daughter & her eligibility in the AB12 program. During my work with the NMD I have identified the following strengths: when employed she is hard working, she takes great care of her daughter, and she is both a talented cook and hairstylist. For these reasons, I am advocating for the NMD to have the need identified met. The main reason I am requesting these needs to be fulfilled is because it directly impacts the safe environment for her child.
