Children's Division is asking for assistance in getting a family a crib for their baby boy. The father is raising his child in his home and is in need of a crib, crib mattress, and fitted sheets/bedding.
I have a student at the high school who is wanting to attend his senior prom. He currently has a brother who is going through expensive treatments and at this time it is a single parent household and money is tight. He has been informed by his parent that they will not be able to afford a tux/suit for the prom. I have reached out to a local business who is willing to provide the student with the best style and fit for the big day for $125 and will run it under the schools name so there will be no taxes. They are also agreeable to do a fitting at no cost. If anyone is agreeable to assist this student, we can give him a senior prom to remember! Thank you in advance.

A single mother of 2 is in desperate need of getting her water turned back on, as the family has gone almost a full week with no water. The landlord is hassling this family after taking a long time to fix a busted water pipe, and recently has refused to assist with the bill that was accumulated during the waiting period. In addition, the family recently received a gas stove that is missing the required gas line to complete the installation. The family had been without a stove for a few weeks now, and receiving the $75 piece for the stove would allow the family to prepare hot meals again. Lastly, this family is in need of two twin boxsprings to finish setting up beds for the children.
The family consists of 2 children with elevated developmental needs. The parents work full-time but with the children's elevated needs, they continue to struggle to make ends meet. The parents have worked hard on cleaning up their home to ensure a safe and healthy environment for the children. The family is in need of a kitchen table, living room couch and bedding for both children.

A 13 year old girl (will be 14 on April 2!) finally connecting with a family member willing to provide a home. There is a closed for the child’s clothes, but a dresser would improve her comfort and wliminate a basket for socks, underwear etc..
A chest of drawers would be fine but a longer burrow that could fits along a wall at the foot of her bed would be great! A sturdy dresser is all that is needed. If the finish is well loved, it could be repainted easily by this creative girl.
My hope is this kinship placement becomes the long term permanent place for her!

The father in this case has been struggling for some time to meet the needs of his 3 children. 2 of them are specifically very high needs, one is diagnosed with autism and the other is in the process of being diagnosed. He has been working hard to catch up on his rent and has been putting nearly every paycheck towards keeping his modest home that the children are excited about living in with him. It has not been enough. He is behind 1500, 400 from last month and 1100 from this month. After having this issue since December the property manager has declined to work with him any longer and will proceed with eviction, leaving the father homeless and the children without a home to reintegrate into. The father has advised this worker that he was originally given 30 days, but now the property management has given him a notice that it must be paid by 5:00 tomorrow or he will be taken to court. Thank you for reading this and any assistance will help. If the full need is not able to be met by the deadline, the case team will return any contribution provided.
A low-income family is in need of a temporary dumpster as they are cleaning and making small renovations to their home. A dumpster would only be needed for a few days. Such efforts will assist the family to improve the condition of their home to be appropriate for returning the children home. Parents are very respectful and motivated to have their children reintegrate, they will likely be flexible to coordinate this assistance.
An aunt of a 17-year-old female is trying very hard to become placement of her niece. She is moving out of her own room to allow the niece to have it and only needs a twin-size mattress for her niece to be placed with her.

Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

There is a woman who has just taken in her four nieces and nephews. The children were living in Kansas, but are now living in Missouri. Due to the sudden displacement, the aunt does not currently have any beds for the children and is currently working on getting the home better prepared for the additional children.
There is a 13 year old boy, a 16 year old girl, a 17 year old boy, and a four year old boy.
The family receiving beds would help them with this sudden change and help the aunt with her resources.
