Single mom who had her children removed from her custody in August of 2022. Kids are fifteen and two. Mom has a lot on her plate between work, treatment, and visits with her kids. She is fighting to maintain her current living arrangement on top of all that is asked of her through the Department. She struggles to make it to all of her required drug screens which has impacted the ability for her kids to return to her care. As an alternative solution, a sobriety monitoring device is being explored for her. The device is costly and unfortunately not covered by the Department. A month's worth of monitoring is going to cost about $300. To help further see this mother succeed and reunify with her children, this request is being placed to help provide financial assistance to pay for the sobriety monitoring device. What is being asked if $300 in gift cards to provide to mom so she can supplement the money she'll have to spend on the device. We are hopeful that this plan will help her make progress and we can return these kiddos back home!

First time parents welcomed their baby boy into the world in November. He was hospitalized for 14 days due to RSV. The mother and father stayed with him during that time, which resulted in the father losing his job. He has been job searching, but has not found anything so far. This couple struggled with the complexity of their decision during the early stages of the pregnancy, and they are now so joyful to have their son with them. They could use support getting a new car seat and stroller. The car seat they currently have was used previously and does not work properly. Having support getting these new items would help them transport their baby safely and take care of him well as they continue to get back on their feet. There is an attached link for a car seat/stroller combo that functions for the parents to attach the car seat to the stroller for easy transportation. Thank you for your partnership in supporting this family!
A Denver family of 6 is in great need of a car mechanic to continue to care for the kids in their care. Both kinship parents work, but they are unable to cover the costs of having their car repaired, and the Catalytic Converter replaced. They are now relying on friends and family to transport them around to work and school and would be so grateful for any help so they can be self-sufficient.
Kin provider is a young caregiver who took in her 14 year old niece. The child did not come with many clothes as she has been running from other homes. She could use a gift card to buy clothing at a store that is more her age. Any amount or teenager items are very much appreciated.

A single mom is in need of support getting baby items for her 6 month old daughter: baby swing, car seat/stroller, pack-n-play/bassinet, and 6-12 mo. girl winter clothes. This mom is also in need of support with rent assistance. She does not have the ability to work at this time as she is the only caregiver for her children. She is looking for jobs and childcare to support her family more affectively. Having these items would allow the mom to delegate her finances towards bills and groceries for her family while she works towards self-sufficiency. We prefer new items. Copied are some links of items similar to what the mom is thinking. If the items are gently used, please be prepared to email photos for her approval. Any support is appreciated!! Thank you!
