This Park Hill student and his mother were involved in a situation that caused them need to leave their home to stay safe. They are currently staying in a hotel, and are hoping to find permanent housing soon. The hotel is working with the family to have a low rate, but money is getting tight. They are also in need of food, but the hotel they are staying in does not have a kitchen, so mom has to be strategic in what they get. In addition to that, the family runs a food truck, and is doing several events in the next couple weeks, and needs access to a kitchen once a week to bake to prep for that week's event. Mom is working in addition to doing all of these other things, and would be grateful for any help she can get.

Leah's Hope is a 12 month transitional housing program that helps women and children who are homeless or facing homelessness. We recently accepted a mother who is working on a reunification plan to regain custody of her 3 children who are currently in kinship. She has some criminal charges against her from several years ago that she is trying to get cleared from her record in hopes of laying a completely solid foundation for the future of her children. The amount requested is not the total amount but any contribution towards this would help this young family tremendously.

They can contact Kristin @ Youth Alliance(###) ###-#### ext.122) and do the safe sleep program & get a pack n play with a bassinet insert. Also does the foster family not get WIC? That would make the formula for the baby free??

There is a foster family in need for a young infant. This little guy has been having tummy issues since birth and deals with a lot of fussiness and constipation. Their household is single income with 3 kids so they have an extremely tight budget that doesn't allow for a lot of extra baby items. She is requesting some probiotic drops because they will highly benefit the baby but it's one of those extras that is simply not in the budget. Any help is welcome and appreciated.
