This request is for a 17yo student that resides with 3 other siblings and a single parent. I became aware of this student's need by a school counselor. I have connected with the family and have identified that this family is in need of and can benefit from financial assistance with an overdue utility bill from the summer. I am aware that this family has been struggling financially while the parent searched for employment. Parent stated that they are now employed and starts today. Parent stated that the financial assistance would be more so to catch up with their overdue balance of $500 for electricity from the summer. If not all can be covered, any funds toward their balance would greatly be appreciated. Thank you for your support and for your consideration in meeting this need.
This student is a 2nd grader who lives a mile away from the school. Her walk would be a 20-minute walk by herself, crossing major roads to return home. Her mother is not able to get off work to pick her up, no one else in the home drives, and the school bus doesn't pick up anyone within a 2-mile radius. This student desperately needs to be at school each day. When her mother is not able to pick her up due to her work schedule, the student does not come to school. The family is in need of funds to pay for after-school care each month.
EDP is $377 per month or $3,016 for the year.
I have a family who is currently in an emergency housing situation. The family consists of a single mom with three children. The student is in 8th grade on my campus, but he also has a brother in 12th grade, and a brother that is too young for school. The family was just evicted from their housing situation, and they are staying at a hotel with no mode of transportation or funds. The family is in need of 200.00 dollars to be able to stay in a two bedroom hotel room for the week while they figure out a more permanent option. As of right now, both students are unable to attend school and all four family members are sharing one hotel room. The family's need is very urgent. Any assistance that can be offered is greatly appreciated.
Looking for help for a fictive kin placement who is taking permanent custody of two children, but is needing help with daycare to maintain permanent care. Due to a freeze in state funding for daycare, the family cannot get help from the state to fund the daycare. The two young children are under 5 and are very happy and comfortable in the home. They are well taken care of and the caretaker can afford to meet their daily needs while working full time, but cannot afford to also pay for daycare. Without daycare they would not be able to work and afford to take care of the kids whom they love dearly and want to keep out of the foster care system. This family is hoping for help from the community to assist with daycare for at least the next six months until they can get further daycare. The cost of daycare is extremely high for all families in today's world and we are hopeful that those who are able will help contribute to meeting these children's needs. The daycare that they attend helps them with learning educationally and with social skills. The total cost of daycare without assistance for the two children is about $2,300 a month. For six months to be fully covered, they would need $13,800
We are supporting a single mom who has 2 children already in her home (ages 3&5) and is willing to taken in her 5 year old niece as a kinship placement. In order to meet the state requirements for this placement, she needs a bunk bed with a trundle bed with it, so that all three children can share a room.
She also needs a slim high back booster seat for her niece to be able to fit with the seats of her other two children.
Please help this family accept the placement of their niece/cousin.

Summary: Family of middle school student requesting help with groceries and utility bills.

In the past, the family has struggled with stable housing, but through their hard work and determination, they have improved their situation significantly.

We had a mother come in this afternoon (8/29) sharing that her and her two children (elementary and middle- GCISD) will be evicted tomorrow (8/30) if they do not come up with the rent for the past 3 months. We are looking into trying to get them temporary housing while they try to get into a more permanent situation. Hotel/motel vouchers would be super helpful. The mother has had her car repossessed by the bank and is now borrowing from someone. She would benefit from a gas card in the mean time to get to her new job.
