Married couple with two young children (one is special needs) just lost a baby three hours after birth due to undetected health issue. They had to divert December rent to burial expenses of $4,000 (to add to what was donated). Mom is facing two additional surgeries this month. Both typically work full-time and need very little support, but they could use help with just half of their rent as they grieve and prepare to transition back to work. The total rent is $1,200. They have $600 to put toward the rent. They requested aid at a local agency and were denied as they received help with their electric bill last May.

Mother recently got a new job that is a position for as needed and therefore not consistent. Her previous position was also an as needed position but she had not gotten any work in about 3 weeks.

Mother is currently in need of help with her rent and a few other outstanding bills for this month until she begins receiving paychecks for the new job. Mother would also be interested in working with a faith based organization as a job when she is not doing the as needed position.

This family is trying to set up separate residences for both parents. Father's work schedule is fluid. Mother has a lot of appointments. The parents and babysitter have to share a car seat. Due to the frequency at which the caregivers exchange baby, they could use another car seat. This would cut down on time and effort, which will help decrease stress on caregivers and baby.

Mother and her three children are currently at risk of losing their housing and vehicle unless they can get their rent and car payment paid. The rent is $1220. The car payment is $330 Mother recently acquired a new job and is exploring alternative housing options so that this issue does not continue. This mother has done the best she absolutely can and did not deserve to go through the struggles that she has been faced with in the previous few months. Once a family of five is now a family of four and this mother is doing all that she can to ensure her children do not have to lose or suffer anymore. Even if multiple churches could come together and donate some money towards the rent and car as a community rather than one taking on the whole need, anything would help.

This individual is a single father of two twin three year old girls who had been without employment for two months and had to pay high costs of child care he was out of work due to not having child care funds and no financial help for his daughters from their mother. He has since gained new employment, however he is making less money than he was and he has since reached out and now has child care assistance to have affordable child care, but is behind on his rent struggling to catch up from using his savings. He is a single father of two young twin girls receiving no child support, struggling to pay his bills after savings were depleted having to pay for child care and rent is over $2,000 behind. The Father's home is the primary home for his twin girls. Updated on December 07, 2023 by an Agency Worker As of December 7th, this request is still needed if a church is able to help.
am currently working with a kinship caregiver who is raising her cousins, ages 11 and 14. The family was served by CarePortal previously, however, the connection was unable to support her needs at the time. The family is now in need of some additional support. Recently, after previous belief that she would be unable to drive, she discovered some unpaid taxes on her vehicle when she believed that a prospective buyer had paid them. Now, she has decided to keep the car, but because of the remaining balance, a stop has been put on her license. This means that she will be unable to renew her registration this month, and if she were to drive it, her car could be towed. She would really appreciate someone who could cover the cost of the taxes and accrued fees, so that the family will have reliable transportation. Due to her disability and the chronic pain that comes with it, the caregiver has been unable to work and is on a fixed income. Therefore, she is finding it difficult ot cover these unexpected costs. Thank you for your dedication to serving the family however you are able!

The child will need the "Huggies" brand of diapers and wipes as she is allergic to the other brands. We greatly appreciate any help and thank you in advance.

Aunt has recently taken in her teenage nephew. He came to her suddenly and with very few of his own things. The family is working very hard to create a safe, comfortable, welcoming space for him. They are in need of a bed (mattress, box spring and simple frame- any size) so he has his own place to get quality sleep. They are also seeking assistance with rebuilding his wardrobe. They have utilized the clothing closets in the community but have had difficulty finding everything he needs at this time. If possible, they feel it would be helpful if he can choose some clothing for himself. They are hoping for a bench to add to their kitchen table to accommodate the addition to their family so everyone can sit together for meals. The family would also appreciate any assistance towards Christmas gifts as this was another unexpected expense they are trying to meet.

A family is seeking a relationship with a local church as well as assistance with bed bugs. There are two children within the home that are under 18 and both are males. The mother stated that the family has had bedbugs for a week, that she knows of, and has killed one crawling on a pillow and found one on one of her children. The mother stated that she has been spraying bedbug spray on the couch, but is worried as she knows they can live within walls and cracks.
The mother has reached out to seven community resources, however has not had any communication or replies.

Single mother has had two children removed from her care previously due to mistakes in her past but has a newborn and a chance to right her wrongs. There are no concerns with the safety of the newborn in her care currently and mother has everything she needs for the child. Mom moved into a new apartment which has a bed for her but nothing else. She is requesting help getting the basic furniture with a couch, tv stand, dining room table, and at least two dressers. We are also requesting a gift card for food and gas to help her through until she can get her girl into daycare at 6weeks and go back to work. This is the first time she has had her feet underneath her and is excited to be moving forward. Please help ensure she can do so comfortably with her littlest blessing!
