Hello there, we just placed a fifteen-year-old child with her great grandmother. The great grandmother is on a fixed income and is in need of a twin mattress and box spring for the child that we placed with her today. The great grandmother is also caring for another grandchild that she has adopted.
The grandmother has had the child that we placed with her today since she was a baby. We are hoping that someone could possibly donate this item and deliver it to her home. She lives on the 5th floor at an apartment building, and it would be difficult for her financially as well as physically to get. Thank you so much for your consideration.
A relative placement is requesting assistance with food. She has recently taken in another one of her grandchildren unexpectedly. Getting some assistance with food will help the family while things get settled and adjusted to feeding another growing teenager.

This is actually for a family on the KS in JOCO, but I had to try to find someone to help. Mother and son are going to be evicted and need their rent paid as soon as possible with the last possible day being the 25th of september. Mom was unemployed due to her car being wrecked but recently she has started a new job and should be able to sustain the family going forward after this. Mom is so worried about having to move because they have no support system here and her son really loves the school he goes to, has made a lot of friends, and likes being able to be on a sports team. Mom was able to pay part of her rent but they still owe 1241.80. Mom has not asked for help in the past and when we talked she just said, "it's really hard for me to say this, but I need help. I don't know what else to do".

M is a youth who came into care for homelessness and medical neglect. M is autistic and was placed with his grandmother upon coming into care. His grandmother is on a restricted income through SSI. Since M came into care grandma has been trying to get him to the medical appointments he has missed. M has a heart condition and has to see a cardiologist annually and take medication everyday. M's dental care was also neglected, and grandma has made an appointment for that as well. Grandma's alternator went out on her car and she now has no way to get M to his doctors appointments. Grandma and M are trying to utilize rides from acquaintances until they are able to get repairs on the car done. They cannot afford repairs and it is important for M to get to his appointments. They are in need of help with getting this repair done and purchasing an alternator.

I am hoping that I can find someone that wants to help a recently single mom who has found the courage to leave an abusive partner and start over with five children. Children age in the range of 4 to 13 and three have special needs. This mom has worked hard to secure a duplex for the next two years and works for the school district so she can be home with the kids when not in school. I hope whoever receives this request knows how deserving this precious family really is. Through all the troubles this family has endured through faith and family. They have always welcomed everyone with smiles and laughter. I am hoping to help them by getting twin bunk beds with plastic protectors and extra mattress pads.
A youth in a relative home I work with is in need of Cleats for football. Youth is placed with a grandparent who is on disability and does not have the money to provide this extra expense for this youth to play football. Below is a link for example of this youth's need.
Grandmother that is placement of youth in care is in need of a new microwave as hers broke. This has made it more difficult for meals for the youth in her home. Grandmother is on disability so income is tight for her. This would help improve daily life for the home
I am working with a family from Micronesia that has a son with Cerebral Palsy. The parents have struggled to be able to maintain Dr. appointments for their child due to having to work to ensure that they are able to pay their bills.
Currently both parents are employed and medical appointments are up to date.
In order to maintain their momentum they could use some assistance to help pay some (or all) of their outstanding utility bills.
Currently their water bill is $1049.13, $890.80 of that amount is past due.
Last month the family was able to put $200 towards the bill. They seem to be capable of covering their monthly bills, they are having a lot of difficulty though recovering from when they were not able to.
The extra support from the community will help ensure that they don't have to neglect medical appointments in the future due to not being able to afford to take the time off of work.
Their son could also use his own twin sixed bed frame and bedding (he loves Spiderman!!)
Any assistance towards this would be greatly appreciated. The family knows that it is a large bill and is grateful for any support they can get.
