A fatherand his five children went through a traumatic experience in April when his wife, and the mother of his children, passed away. He was left to care for the children, and his three younger children struggled with getting enrolled in school. This is due to the fact that his own mother died of COVID and he was scared to put the children in public school. The youngest child has Beckwith-Weidemann syndrome so this father has a lot on his plate. His wife had previously taken care of getting the children enrolled in school and making sure that medical needs were met. Currently, the family is living off of the children's survivor benefits while he is trying to get everything in order. The children just started online school and are switching between 1 family laptop to get all of their schooling done. This family would really appreciate three laptops or tablets that his children can complete their schooling on.

The Department is working with a 15 year old girl who has been in and out of placement since she was a young child. She is currently in placement due to substance abuse by her mother. The placement is struggling financially and I am requesting additional fun things for the child to do. She likes going to movies, chick fil A, going to the mall and doing make up.
