Help Make a Kinship Placement

Normal Request
14 year old teen girl in foster care has recently been able to reunite with her sisters (E, 11 and R, 12), stepdad, and step-grandmother! The grandmother has been the primary caregiver to E & R, as well as her own sister who has been sick. The grandmother also lost her son recently. Despite all the grief, the grandmother has enthusiastically accepted the 14 year old into her home, but is concerned about keeping up with bills as well as providing a good Christmas. We are looking for Christmas decorations, gift cards, and teen girl items.

Help Improve a Child's School Attendance

High Urgency Request
A student needs an Uber gift card to get to NCC when PHS is not in session. When school is not in session, students are still expected to attend NCC. Due to this student not having transportation to get to NCC, they are being penalized for their attendance. This student is in a family with a single mother who cannot transport this student. An Uber Gift Card would assist him in getting to and from NCC and in turn would improve his attendance.

Normal Request
Kinship placement, Grandpa & Great Aunt are caring for 2 young children in their family. The home has cockroaches and desperately needs to be treated. The family is strapped for money and is unable to pay for the treatment. The family has gotten a quote from a pest control company for an initial treatment that would cost $350. They would need to follow up with additional treatments but any help to get them started would be appreciated. This would greatly improve the quality of living for the entire family but especially the children ages 18 months and 5 years old. Please consider helping this family. Thank you.
