Help Make a Kinship Placement
2
High Urgency Request
A single aunt is willing and able to be placement to her 4 year old and 5 month old nieces after her mother gave notice on being placement due to some health issues, however she is short a bed for the 4 year old. She does have 3 of her own children living in the home. In order to make the placement work temporarily, she will be having her 4 year old niece sleep in her 9 year old daughter's bed and her 9 year old will be sleeping in her room. Placement is looking for a twin size bunk bed for the 4 year old and the 9 year old as the 4 year old is tall for her age and may not fit into a toddler size bed and the 9 year old will not fit into a toddler size bed.

Normal Request
This family has multiple people in the household as they came together to take care of these 5 children who came into care. These 5 children's grandmother, lives with her mother and father and her other daughter who has two kids. We all joined together to make this placement work, so these children did not have to be separated. The grandmother does a lot for these children multiple doctor appointments and taking care of an infant with medical needs. The children are 10,7,4,2 and 4 months old. This family is in desperate need of a dryer if we could find one as their dryer quit working and going to the laundry mat is very expensive. They also need some help with a highchair big enough for the 2-year-old as he does need it. If they could get this help it would benefit the placement and the children.

High Urgency Request
Our clinic has been assisting a mother whose husband recently left the home due to domestic issues. Due to only having one income now, as well as a daughter with health issues, she has fallen behind on rent and was served an eviction notice. Her total rent due is $1,164.50 but she is putting $485 on it tomorrow. She has applied for a rent assistance program and is also applying for Section 8 housing as she knows she can non longer afford rent without her partner. We are asking for assistance in paying the remaining amount $679.50 and can provide a copy of the bill. Thank you!

Mom of 3 needs help acquiring activity toys, rattles, and a baby play gym for a 3 month old. She needs a baby swing and size 3 diapers diapers also. Mom did not expect to have a third child and had given away all baby items. Mom is not going back to work until the end of February so she does not have any income at this time. Her other children are 6 (girl) and 4 (boy who has developmental delays). At this time she is not receiving child support and only has her retired father to help her out.

A family is in need of two bookselves and a curio cabinet to help them get organized. They are a big family with a wide range of ages. They have limited storage area for things like games, books, toys, dishes, pots, and pans. Having storage areas will allow for them to have a place for their belongings to go instead of them being in random piles.

A young name is in need of a new futon. He has been offered a bed, but he prefers a futon for when he has friends over. The one that he currently has is broken. He is wanting one that is more comfortable like a bed as well. Getting this futon will allow for him to not only get a good night's rest, but it will also allow for him to socialize with his friends.

Help Reunify a Bio Family

Normal Request
A mother is very close to reunifying with her children; she just needs one more bed! She would like a daybed or a bed that works as both a couch and a bed since she will be sleeping in the living room to make space for her children. She would also like a Ring doorbell as a safety precaution to ensure the perpetrator of the children's abuse does not come to the home and to help the children feel more safe.

Critical Need
A single mom with an 8 year-old boy and 9 year-old girl coming out of homelessness after losing disability benefits and are in major need of funding for utility bills. Dad is an addict and not in the picture and uncle on dad's side is helping them get stable. They are staying in an empty house owned by a relative of the uncle and he is paying their rent for now but they are living with no furniture, water or electricity. There are past due balances and activation fees on the electric and water that need to be paid in order for them to be turned on, totaling almost $1500, but any amount helps! We are hoping the CarePortal community can contribute some funds to help get the utilities turned on for this family.

Normal Need
We previously helped this family with light bill from a CarePortal Request (53051) - a single mom of an 8 year-old girl with severe anxiety and seizures, and a 6 year old boy with a variety of medical issues leading to immobility, obesity and developmental delays. Mom works literally around the clock to provide all of the extra care they need, on top of having her own medical issues she is trying to address for the first time in years. Since the original request, we have been getting to know the family and providing additional items as needed. Mom is very sweet, thankful and responsible and it has been a joy to support them. She never wants to ask for help but recently shared that bathing her son at his size is very difficult and taxing for her, and that having a special showered and chair would be a huge help and relieve a lot of the stress around caring for her high-needs son. Additionally, their AC went out over the Summer so we are looking for funding for a window unit that was provided to them. Thank you for any help you can provide!
