A young mother with an infant with complex medical issues is needing a mini fridge to store his life sustaining total parenteral nutrition (TPN). Having a separate mini fridge is helpful to ensuring the TPN is kept sterile, which lowers the infant's chances for potentially deadly central line infections. If possible, it would be helpful to have the fridge delivered to the family's home due to this infant currently being admitted to the hospital.

Single mom of 3 children is in need of getting birth certificates for her children so they can enroll in a new school. This family has been homeless, and by staying at many different homes, she has lost a lot of important information. We have been helping her get her ID, SSN, and now birth certificates for her and her children. This transition for the kids has been tough and she believes them switching schools to where they are now will help them become more stable. This process is all part of her getting a job, housing, etc. We are wrapping around this mom to support her in this process!
A family has recently moved into a new home after one of the children's father was killed. The family is still grieving, and losing a source of income has forced the mom to look for other employment. She has a job opportunity that would help but does not have reliable transportation at this time to get to work. She has a bus pass, but not all work sites are on the bus line, so she is requesting an adult bike that she could use to get to and from work. Since they moved, the family is also seeking furniture for their home at this time. They are in need of dressers and a dining room table with chairs. Anything is helpful (however the bike is a priority so the mom can take the new job opportunity and earn more money for her family). I am not sure how much bike/furniture would cost so the amounts below are a rough estimate.

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.

The two oldest children in the home are wrestling. Since moving to this home, the family was trying to find a way to help them meet people and feel welcome and also feel like they are doing well. Wresting has done this for them, this is the most successful placement they have had to date. They are also looking to adopt the children, so that is a very positive outcome for them. They are taking first place in their meets and are really excelling, so they are able to continue on to higher competition. The family needs help to pay fees in order to make this happen for them. It is 200 per child, so 400 total and the family can't afford that on top of the other children in the home and their fees, but wants to make this happen for them.

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.

I have a 15 year old foster child on my caseload who currently has braces but has been unable to get the brackets replaced and be seen by the orthodontist as her step-mother has not been financially able to make the monthly payment. The 15 year old's braces were put on in 2020 when she was residing with her biological father and step-mother. Since coming into care with three of her siblings (there are 5 kids total- one is not in care), the step-mother has not been able to pay the monthly bill due to other priorities (rent, utilities, food, gas, after school programs, sports, etc). The step-mother is employed full time but still does not have the finances to get caught up on the 15 year old's braces.
Assistance for the braces is greatly needed as the 15 year old's is starting to struggle with the lack of services required to maintain her braces. I do have the billing from the orthodontist office for verification of pricing.
To get the plan re-open, the cost will be $500. To pay off the total amount for the braces and receive current maintenance for the braces is $2300.00
