I have a dad who is attempting to reunify with his three children. He needs help paying his Cricket phone bill. This father works for himself so without access to a phone he has no way to make contact with his clients.
I have a mom who is trying to get reunification of her four children. She and her spouse have split so she is trying to pay the rent of $1000 per month all by herself and she is receiving SSI. I am requesting assistance with one month rent to help her figure out something. She has a lot on her plate as her twins were born at 22 weeks.
Can you send the client to our social services HUB located in Iron Gate? They will need to bring some documents with them to apply for rental assistance, but they can call us Landlord Tenant Resource Center to verify documents needed for the application:(###) ###-####
I have a dad who is attempting to reunify with his three children. He currently owes $200 to PSO on the back electric so he has only been able to do Power Pay and get a couple days at a time. We are requesting that back pay be paid along with $100 extra to help him.
We are currently working with a mom of a 9 year old boy. She is doing great in engaging in services and is doing everything to reunite her family. Mom is currently struggling with the price of gas though. Her job has moved across town and it is a further commute. Additionally, her son is nearly 2 hours away. Worker is assisting in transporting mom to visit him, but she would like to be able to see him more. Phone calls are not enough. To top it off, her car is starting to have some issues starting. Mom is unsure of what the cause of the problem is. It would be greatly appreciated if she knew of a mechanic that would be willing to help her out and figure out what is wrong with her car. If not, the amount it would cost to visit a mechanic of her choosing. As I said, mom is doing everything in her power to reunite her family and trying to see him as much as she can. If you feel that you can assist in any way, I would be happy to connect you to the her. It would be greatly appreciated.

A biological mother needs help with utility bills. She has been working very hard toward reunification with her child. She has changed jobs to strengthen her sobriety, but is having trouble making ends meet as she is now left to take care of her rent and expenses alone. She currently has a couple overdue utility bills. We are asking for anyone who is willing to partner with her to help her with this expense. This will help her keep her utilities on to allow visitation with her child in her home and to allow her to keep her home as she works toward reunification. Thank you for the help you provide to our families in need.

Kinship foster mom has stepped up to care for 4 nieces (13, 12, 2, 7 months. These girls have experienced a very traumatic, difficult life. The foster mom has rearranged her life and house to care for the children. She takes them to all their appointments and show a great deal of love and caring for them. She is doing an amazing job! The three older girls are having to share a room and the three beds make the room feel constricted. Foster mom is looking to get the girls a triple bunk bed. This will give the girls the floor space they need to play or move around.
If you could assist in any way, I would be happy to connect you with foster mom. Foster mom has stated that she is greatly appreciative of any help that is given. Thank you for your assistance!

I have a family in a situation where they do not have regular access to activities to keep entertained. The mom is asking for a portable DVD player so the kids can watch movies in a quiet environment when playing with toys is not an option.

There were two kids that were sent to Washington State to be placed in a relative foster home. They have been there since May and are doing really well. The natural father is now trying to get the funds together to relocate to Washington to be able to finish his final services and reunite his family. In preparing his truck to travel he had an issue with the truck's motor. He was able to get the money together to fix the motor and make the truck suitable for a long-distance jaunt but in doing so he depleted his savings for gas to get to where he was going. We are asking for assistance with a gas card to assist him in his relocation. He has completed all of the tasks he can do here in this state and now is ready to go and be near his children so he can finish his treatment plan and this family of 3 can be reunited.

Hello everyone, I have an adopted mother on my caseload in the final stages of adopting a sibling set. The children are ages 5, 9, and 10. They all have been in the home going on three years in October. The adoptive mom desperately needs her utility bill paid because of a surge in pricing. The adoptive mom has done a tremendous job caring for all three children and giving them the life and care they weren’t used to before coming into custody. When I visit the family, the siblings constantly tell me how they feel loved and safe with their new mother. As their worker, I can see the extraordinary change with the girls. They always appear to be at peace, happy, and thriving. The family would surely be grateful if anyone in the community could assist with half or all of the bill.
