There is a two year old and two month old living with grandma in an Out of Home Safety Plan right now. Grandma works Monday-Friday and has had to take a week off of work due to the boys being with her now. Mom does not work so she is unable to help grandma financially with diapers and wipes. Mom has gone to Emergency Infant Services before and picked up diapers and wipes for the two children. Mom has reached her quota for the month with Emergency Infant Services. Grandma is on a strict budget and is unable to buy diapers and wipes for the children at this time.
Need: The children are in need of wipes and diapers. The two year old is in a size 4 or 5 diapers and the two month old wears a size 1. Any brand is fine.

Grandmother is caring for her two young granddaughters who are 4 and 5. She is needing twin beds with mattresses for them ASAP. She does not need the bedding as she has that.

I have a young mom with 2 kiddos under the age of 2 that is trying to complete services. She will typically walk or use a scooter to get to where she needs to be. She has also been offered a job and is needing a food handler's permit to be able to start working. A bus pass and help with obtaining her food handlers to begin receiving income would be instrumental in allowing her to get to and from services and work! Thank you so much!
A single father is caring for his infant child while working services. The father is working part time while looking for fulltime employment. The infant has has trouble keeping her milk down. It was recommended by the pediatrician that thickener be added to the bottles during every feeding. The father has purchased a few containers of thickener but he is running low. We would like to alleviate some of the financial burdens for this father and provide him with a few jars of thickener. He has been purchasing the Walgreens brand, regular strength (Thick Now Powder) Thank you.
We have a safety plan monitor who is caring for a toddler while her parents are in treatment. The toddler has jumped on her bed one too many times and the bed is now broken.

Helping fulfill this need will provide the toddler with more comfortability throughout the night. Thank you.

This request is for parents who are in need of some additional baby items to ensure they have what they need to take care of their three baby daughters. They are asking for helping in obtaining some additional items: 1 Boppy Pillow, Diaper Genie, Potty Seat, Baby Monitor, Glider Rocking Chair, 2 Toy Boxes, 1 Baby gate, Swaddle Blankets, 1 Baby Swing, and 1 Bouncer. Please consider blessing them with these items and give them the ability to utilize these items to help them be successful as parents. Dad is currently working while Mom is getting them enrolled in an early childhood program so that she can get employment herself! This would be a substantial burden lifted off their shoulders. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding this request! Thank you again!
This request is for a family who are in need of beds for their twins (4 month old's), and a one year old child. They had beds but they got ruined when these items were in storage due to a leak in the shed that the beds were stored in. We are desperately needing 3 cribs (whether cribs or convertible to toddler beds) or just 3 plain pack-n-plays for tonight for 2- four month old's and a one year old to ensure the children are able to stay with the parents tonight. This would help ensure the children have sleeping arrangements while we are waiting to receive more items for the home! This would tremendously bless this family and you would be assisting in the reunification process of the children! We want to bring them home before thanksgiving if possible!
I have a family who has recently reunified with natural mother. The home where she, her children and her boyfriend reside does not have central heat. It is very cold in the home. Family could use several space heaters or perhaps a mini split heat/ac. Additionally, family could also use groceries as the only one able to work is mom's boyfriend.
We have a foster mom who is in need of fuel for her vehicle. The Foster mom has two of her sisters kids in her care and she transports the kid's daily to school and daycare. She normally does not have enough money to buy fuel for her vehicle by the end of each month.
This is an urgent need for a lockbox for medications to keep a child safe in the home. The lockboxes from Walmart would suffice for this need. If the lockbox does not come with a key, a combination lock would be needed, as well. Thank you in advance.
