This is a family of a mom, dad, and 7 children. The parents have managed to stay together and work together, and have successfully gotten all of their children back home. They have a fully furnished home and the whole family has been transitioning and working through the bumps along the way with getting used to having everyone together again! The mother also is in recovery for substance use herself and has been on a very successful path. The dad is SO PATIENT and level headed when mediating and handling the kiddos, it's impressive (even after a day of work)! They have two non school age children and the parents have been unable to get them enrolled in daycare due to the financial barrier of the $100 registration fee (one time per family), despite having a daycare voucher all set up and ready to go. If the parents were able to get childcare for at least one of the children that there's an opening for right now, that would be a great start. The daycare has stated they'll have an opening for the 4 year old in the very near future and we'd like to get him there as they also have a Summer VPK program he will benefit greatly from! The other benefit of these parents having childcare for everyone is that they'll be able to have more effective sessions with me when I am working to get both of them on the same page. Whereas now, I tend to have to speak to one parent at a time because one of them is needed to keep up with the kids.
I will give the family / daycare name to the funder
Mom on this case is a single mom of two boys 12 and 6 years old. Mom has been living in a motel with her and her 2 sons since July 2022 due to loosing her job and home to the hurricane. The money request for rent will be for the family to continue to stay in the motel while mom awaits her tax return so she can purchase a mobile home. mom is currently struggling to get back on her feet, Mom is working at a nursing home as a CNA making 19 dollars a hour mom is working full time hours . Mom has been trying to get food stamps and Medicaid but, no help because DCF Access stated she make to much money for assistance. If someone can help this family would greatly appreciate it.
Mom is going through an unexpected divorce due to a domestic violence incident which resulted in a restraining order. Mom cannot afford the rent on her own so she has moved with her 5 year old into a one bedroom apartment. Mom does not have room for both beds so case worker recommended a bunk bed with a full on bottom and twin on top so mom does not have to sleep on the couch and so family can still have some space to function well in their new home which they deal with the aftermath of everything that is going on. Case worker has requested this bunk bed from three different agencies and been turned down because they will not provide a bed for mom. However, it is very important that mom's needs are met in order for her to meet the needs of her child.
Child has a twin mattress already. Case worker is requesting the bunk bed frame and a full mattress for mom but family would happily accept the bunk bed frame without mattress if that could be provided.

Susan Green needs financial assistance for her and her 2 children. She was kicked out of the home with her friend and has been living in a motel. She gets cash assistance and social security but has fallen behind since her friend kicked her out. She just needs extra money to pay for staying in the hotel until her court date March 8th or until she can find a new apartment to move in to. She cannot work due to her disability and her son is working but cannot make enough to support the whole family. She gets her money on the first so she would be able to fund herself moving out if an apartment is found.

Single mother, who works two jobs, of a teenage boy, grew up in foster care herself and actually gave birth to her son while she was a minor in foster care herself. As a result of her inconsistent support system, she was never taught how to drive. She hasn’t let this hold her back from her goals and has used a combination of: public transit, uber, & family/friends. She is very proud of what she has accomplished in her life, given her background, but could use some assistance with getting past the hurdle of learning how to drive from a reputable driving school, for quality assurance and completeness. She has no driving violations or fines in her way, as she’s made the smart decision to never drive without a license, and she is in need of being taught correctly.
Westchase Drive Safe is the driving school and the cost is $440 for the mother to receive four 1 hour sessions and would include the pickup/drop off fees. $440 paid to Westchase Drive Safe would remove the financial barrier for the mother to get the education and training she needs to feel safe and prepared to drive herself and her son. The mother is aware that there are more steps, but this is the 1st and most important one to start with
Please join us in showing this mother and son that the community is proud of the work she has put in to change her family tree and that we are all supportive of her seeking more independence and ability to logistically meet the demands of life when it comes to timely transportation. Updated on February 01, 2023 by an Agency Worker One lesson is committed to being covered through the connections from Grace Family Church, thank you!
There is a quantity discount if 4 lessons are bought all at once and the price would come out to about $440. If the lessons are bought individually, they are $99 + $15 for pickup/drop off.
The mother knows that there are further steps to getting mobile, such as a vehicle and car insurance, but I won't want to overwhelm her with putting the cart before the horse. The most important 1st step is for her to learn how to drive to begin with.
Thank you for the support everyone!
Foster mom's 4 yo son will be having surgery. Foster mom will also need surgery in the near future. She fosters a one-year-old and is a great help to other foster moms who need help with babysitting. She could use some help with gift cards for food or if the church prefers door dash or has someone to cook meals, they enjoy tropical smoothie, chipotle, chic fila, olive garden. Though they do have food allergies, so we'd have to reach out to foster mom for specific meals. Updated on January 09, 2023 by an Agency Worker we had someone donate a $25 gift card. The foster mother is sick again and helping with dinners would be helpful for her.
