I am currently assisting a young (sister) caring for her young brother. She herself was a child from a trauma background, now suddenly caring for her brother during tough times of the family. The sister is doing well, she is attempting to set up a nice home for the two of them. She has recently moved into a new two-bedroom apartment to meet the needs of the two of them. She could use help to make this house a real home. It would be so great to assist her with a much-needed electric washer and dryer, solid wood bookshelf (as she is an avid reader-with lots of books), and possibly a nice coffee table to cozy up the living room. Although these items are needed for licensure, it would lighten her load to use her limited income to buy food and clothing for her brother. She has limited household items-enough to get by, but even mentioned she needed cookie sheets, pizza pans, and cake pans. She told me the other day she went to back a frozen pizza and realized she had nothing to put them on or to cut it with. She improvised and found some scissors to cut their pizza. "We managed, it worked". She is a strong young lady who has battled to establisher herself and now trying to do right by her brother.

Family of 7 is lacking transportation to and from medical appointments, work, and a grocery store. They live out in the country so a bus pass will not be sufficient. They just bought a car and do not have enough to pay sales tax to get it registered. We are estimating sales tax and registration to be $150. The family is also struggling with mice in their home.
We are seeking a card with $150 for sales tax and registration as well as a few mice traps.

Bio Mom has recently been reunited with her two boys and also has a two month old newborn baby girl. Mom is doing very well, but unfortunately recently lost her job due to the boys having some behavior issues with their daycare. Due to loss of job, Mom has a couple of physical needs to help with baby girl and one of her boys. Mom is attempting to go out daily with the boys to help them with their energy level and get some physical playing time. She needs a stroller to help transport baby girl during these outings. The stroller would be best if a car seat could be supported in it and then when she is not in her car seat, she could be supported as well in the stroller. She is still very small, but will grow and hopefully the stroller could accommodate her growth. Her oldest boy is also in need of a pair of tennis shoes. Size 9, preferably easy to put on and take off, Velcro closure type design. Updated on September 21, 2023 by an Agency Worker The car seat that Mom is currently using is a Snug Ride 35 Lite.
