A child that is five has been reunified with his father. He and the father sleep in the same room. The father is currently rebuilding his life as he now sleeps in a twin bed. The family is requesting a toddler bed and mattress for the youth so he and the father can sleep comfortably.
We are asking for financial assistance for a mother, 31 years old, who is ill and placed in a nursing care facility due to her critical medical issues. Mother is blind in one eye and has 9% kidney function. Despite her medical condition, Mother continues to work on reunification. The mother visits with her children at the nursing home facility, but due to her medical status, she is unable to work and has zero source of income. Her children are older, 14 and 16. We are requesting a financial donation for a mother to use on her visits with her children. The mother would like to be able to offer the children a meal, go out of the facility, buy them something, or purchase things she and the children can use during the visits. Any financial assistance received will be used to strengthen the bond and quality of the visits with the children, while they still have their mother. The mother has a parent partner assigned who is helping her come up with activities she can do during the visit with her children. It is unknown if the mother will receive a transplant donation, so the time of the visits is crucial for these children.
