One year old male is in need of a convertible car seat. The child is placed with his maternal grandmother, grandmother is the only source of income in the household and for the child, so finances can be tight when items that are not part of the monthly budget are needed. The child recently turned one year old, so he is transitioning from an infant car seat. A convertible car seat would allow for the child to be transported safely. It would also allow for him to fit more comfortably since he has outgrown the infant car seat.
We have ordered the convertible car seat from Amazon and it will be delivered tomorrow to our office here at North Ellis County Outreach. The number here is(###) ###-#### ext 2 If you want to let me know how to get it to someone or a number to call upon arrival we will take care of this

The caregiver is a paternal aunt currently caring for her two nieces ages 1 1/2 years and 6 months old. The children were removed from their home of origin due to abuse/neglect. The caregiver is willing to provide long term care should the need arise. The caregiver is in need of a toddler bed for the older child as it would create a better sleeping space for her. Providing assistance to the family would be a great help as they are experiencing some financial restraints.
Looking for help for a fictive kin placement who is taking permanent custody of two children, but is needing help with daycare to maintain permanent care. Due to a freeze in state funding for daycare, the family cannot get help from the state to fund the daycare. The two young children are under 5 and are very happy and comfortable in the home. They are well taken care of and the caretaker can afford to meet their daily needs while working full time, but cannot afford to also pay for daycare. Without daycare they would not be able to work and afford to take care of the kids whom they love dearly and want to keep out of the foster care system. This family is hoping for help from the community to assist with daycare for at least the next six months until they can get further daycare. The cost of daycare is extremely high for all families in today's world and we are hopeful that those who are able will help contribute to meeting these children's needs. The daycare that they attend helps them with learning educationally and with social skills. The total cost of daycare without assistance for the two children is about $2,300 a month. For six months to be fully covered, they would need $13,800
We are supporting a single mom who has 2 children already in her home (ages 3&5) and is willing to taken in her 5 year old niece as a kinship placement.

She also needs a slim high back booster seat for her niece to be able to fit with the seats of her other two children.
Please help this family accept the placement of their niece/cousin.

there is a large family who have almost no furniture in the home. they have a pile of dirty clothes because they have no washer or dryer. the family has a low income and needs help. Updated on August 30, 2023 by an Agency Worker Some of the items in the request have been fulfilled (all of the car and booster seats) by the CAC. The family only needs beds, mattresses, bed sheets, and a washer/dryer now. They need the washer/dryer most of all. Those are items that the CAC cannot really obtain.
There are 6 kids in the home-
8 yo girl
6 yo boy (with autism)
5 yo girl
3 yo boy
2 yo boy
And a 1 yo girl
This family would greatly benefit from a washer/dryer and would actually eliminate many of the concerns CPS has been receiving about the family
