High Urgency Request
This foster parent recently had two boys placed in her home. They are aged 11 and 12. The foster parent has since been struggling to meet all their needs. She needs assistance with clothing for the boys who wear sizes 14 to 16. they have grown out of the clothing they currently have and are in need of new clothes that fit them. The foster parent also needs help with gas for her additional job and rental assistance. This parent was working a full-time job but is now working part time to take the boys to their appointments. She has since taken on another job delivering food as an additional source of income and it allows her to have a flexible schedule to care for the boys as well as take them to their appointments. If these needs are met, she will be able to work both jobs and provide for all the household needs and care for the boys' well-being.

Normal Request
A mother of 6 month old twin girls is struggling financially and needs assistance paying next month's rent or she will be evicted. She has been working really hard to reunite with her babies and has gained independence, but she had to quit her main job as they would not allow her the flexibility to go to the necessary appointments required for this case and her children. She currently has a part time night job and is working to get another fulltime day job that is more flexible. Helping with this need would enable this mom to keep her home and not become homeless. It would provide her the stability that she needs to keep working towards reunification with her babies.

This family is asking for $924.00 in gift cards to cover the cost of new tires for their only vehicle. The mother, 12yo and 16yo daughters have moved out of their home, due to a no contact order in place from allegations against the step-father. This morning the 16yo was driving their suburban and popped the front 2 tires, since this is a all wheel drive suburban they need to replace all 4 tires. The 16yo has completed high school and works30-40 hours a week at Wal-Mart, her work day ends after buses run, so she needs a vehicle to get back and forth to work, and to provide transportation for the 12yo to and from school. The family can not provide transportation for the children because mother is working 3 jobs to support the family. If this need is met the 16yo will have a reliable form of transportation to work and to pick up her sister. The mother does not have the money to replace the tires. Your donation means a lot to this family.

Help Preserve a Foster Care Placement

Normal Request
A local single foster mom is caring for two teen boys in foster care and would love to surprise them with some brand new shoes! We know it's a big ask, but they can't stop talking about Jordans and would be BLOWN AWAY to get some. Would also be great with some Amazon gift cards to be able to pick out their absolute favorites! One wears size 7.5, one wears size 10. If Jordans are outside of a comfortable price range, they would still be grateful for an Amazon gift card of any amount to be able to pick out some new shoes! Thank you!

This family is currently going through hard times financially. They have 2 girls and are living in a camper currently, trying to find a more permanent place to live. This mom has always put her girls needs over her own and always has a plan B and C if needed. This mom could really use either a Wal-Mart gift card for basic needs, or a gas card as they live about 45 mins from her girls' school which has been a constant for the girls and she could use gas to help get them to and from their school. Any help would be greatly appreciated from this family during this time.
