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 pregnant mom sleeping on an air mattress and could really use better support as she is 7 months pregnant. If she couldn't get a full-size bed, I am sure she would be happy with a twin. She is single with 3 other children and has worked very hard to get where she is right now. She is currently pregnant with a baby girl. She could use anything to help her get prepared for her arrival.
I have 6 children who do not have any beds and are sleeping on the floor. There is only room for two sets of bunkbeds but they can double up on the bed as needed. This request was specifically asked for by one of the children involved. This would allow them to have a good nights sleep which, in turn, will help them academically and socially.
My 17 year old student is a fantastic mother to a two year old girl who is in need of clothing for sizes 18months. My student is living at home with mom and helps around the house, parents and comes to school. She will graduate early even with all the responsibilities she has. It would be amazing if you wanted to provide a Walmart giftccard to help with her expenses as well.
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.
I have a mother of a 14 year old, who is in desperate need of food. The family has been homeless for over 18 months. We have paid for them to be in a hotel for two weeks. Mom receives disability and her girlfriend does work, but they currently do not have any money. They are trying to find a local food bank to go to, but they do not have a car, and do not have any money for transportation. We have not found any that will transport food to them yet. They had food stamps up until the last month, but they did not renew the application before their benefits expired. They have since reapplied and are waiting for them to be approved. The food will need to be dropped off to them.
I have a family who are not US Citizens, so many of the resources available cannot be accessed by this family. Recently the mother has become ill and cannot work as much as typical. As such, she is paying full price for medications (which are not typical expenses on previous income). I would love to get any help possible for the family. Two ways I believe this is possible is by paying the baseball registration for the elementary brother of my student at the cost of $140. Additionally, gas cards in order to help alleviate the cost of living in the amount of $200. This would allow mom to get to and from work.
The caregiver is a paternal aunt currently caring for her two nieces ages 1 1/2 years and 6 months old. The children were removed from their home of origin due to abuse/neglect. The caregiver is willing to provide long term care should the need arise. The caregiver is in need of a toddler bed for the older child as it would create a better sleeping space for her. Providing assistance to the family would be a great help as they are experiencing some financial restraints.
I have three middle school aged boys whose mother was evicted from their apartment for financial reasons. he boys were taken in by their adult brother, to ensure their school was not disrupted. Mother is living with a friend. The adult brother is having a hard time making ends meet with three new people in the house. I am connecting the family with food resources, but the boys need shoes for athletics and clothing for school. We are in need of 3 Athletic shoes Nike or Adidas (suitable for running) size Men's 9 1/2, 9, 9 1/2 (one pair for each boy.) And we are in need of Athletic Style clothing (Dri Weave) shirts (short and long sleeve), shorts, and sweatpants for each boy- all size Men's small (can be any brand.)
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.
17 year old teen mom is in need of laptop in order to complete high school. Youth is enrolled in a nom-traditional school setting that will support youth in graduating high school on time. Youth has fallen behind in school due to being a mom and student simultaneously. Youth is an amazing mother and really tries hard to succeed. A laptop will further help youth reach her academic goals in order to further support her transition out of foster care.
The kinship caregivers are requesting a convertible car seat for the youngest female child that CPS has placed in their care. This 22-month-old is growing quickly and will soon outgrow her current car seat. The ideal car seat would hold a child with the weight of up to 90/100 lbs. The family stated they were also looking for a highchair and/or toddler seat that would fit onto a kitchen chair. This will allow the family to properly feed the child without holding her while they are attempting to eat. The family has been very diligent in meeting the children's needs and are only lacking these two items. At this time the family does not qualify for kinship funds so these items would be very much appreciated if they are able to be supplied.
Our fully accredited high school is in need of insulated water bottles for students. This will free up financial resources to meet true student needs rather than having to purchase drinking cups and throw them away. Each student could have their own water bottle. We provide full wrap around case management for our students, many of which face homelessness and have poor to no relationships with caring adults.
Our fully accredited high school provides full wrap around case management services for our 27 students, many of which face homelessness and lack of positive adult relationships. As part of our school, lunches are provided and we have a need for 24 oz insulated water bottles so that each student can have their own. This would allow us to put money spent on drinking cups to true student needs.
