We have a five year old boy who is excited to start learning how to ride a bike with the help of this amazing foster family!

If you are interested in fulfilling this request, we can send links to potential bikes. Thank you!!

Mom gave birth to baby boy on 1/25/2023, she did not receive prenatal care so the doctor estimates he was born about 35-36 gestational. Baby was born weighing 5 lbs 7.8 ounces. Unfortunately his mom struggles with addiction so baby tested positive and he is now experiencing withdrawal. Baby boy is a very strong baby and he hopes to go home very soon to his grandmother where she also has been taking care of his older brother. All of this was unexpected so baby boy's grandmother was not prepared and she is also on a fixed income. She is needing help with a bassinet(pack in play with bassinet insert), infant car seat and stroller, and baby tub. I thought that a stroller would help her get around with baby and his older brother and make it easier for her.

Biological father needs assistance with groceries and transportation.
Father is currently residing in a sober living facility while working towards reunification. Father is unable to work, due to a medical condition he will be receiving surgery for in March 2023. Father is responsible for his own groceries and transportation to and from treatment appointments. Father relies on public transportation, but has appointments in Denver, CO which consumes hours of travel in one day and quickly goes through the bus passes. Father would benefit from a gift card for groceries and an Uber/Lyft gift card.
If father receives these items, he will be able to maintain his treatment appointments and continue to make progress towards reunification.

Biological father is in need of an Uber/Lyft gift card to get to and from visitation with his daughter. Father works two jobs and his public transportation passes go quickly and also result in hours of travel each day.
Father was recently a victim to a domestic violence incident that has required him to relocate and obtain additional employment to support his needs.
Father would greatly benefit from an Uber/Lyft gift card that would allow him to get to and from employment and visitation in a timely manner so we can increase parenting time and move towards reunification.

Single Biological father is in need of a vehicle to use. Father is fully reliant on public transportation and is unable to transport his 14month old daughter consistently as a result of not having a personal vehicle. Father was recently a victim to domestic violence and he and his partner have separated, leaving him without a vehicle to transport himself to and from visitation to his employment and medical appointments. Father works two jobs and spends several hours a day on public transportation getting to and from each workplace, in addition to his other treatment options.
We are hoping to expand visitation with his daughter; however, this has proved difficult with public transportation not being available in all areas and has limited father's availability to his daughter and location of placement of the child.
If father receives a vehicle, he will have reliable transportation to get himself to and from visits with his daughter, transport her to medical appointments/school and allow him to move forward following reunification.

A family needs support getting some new bedroom furniture. Parents to seven children ranging from 10 years old down to two months old are struggling to stay on top of everything. Their greatest need is for two queen beds for their four oldest children. These four are currently sharing a king bed that they will soon have to get rid of due to health concerns. The mom is working at a school part-time as a school aid to contribute financially to the family while also raising her six children and newborn. Having support getting these items would help the children have a safe and clean space to rest. We ask for 3 or 4 different people to split this up and help us tackle this request. We greatly appreciate your support! Thank you!

First time parents welcomed their baby boy into the world in November. He was hospitalized for 14 days due to RSV. The mother and father stayed with him during that time, which resulted in the father losing his job. He has been job searching, but has not found anything so far. This couple struggled with the complexity of their decision during the early stages of the pregnancy, and they are now so joyful to have their son with them. They could use support getting a new car seat and stroller. The car seat they currently have was used previously and does not work properly. Having support getting these new items would help them transport their baby safely and take care of him well as they continue to get back on their feet. There is an attached link for a car seat/stroller combo that functions for the parents to attach the car seat to the stroller for easy transportation. Thank you for your partnership in supporting this family!

A Denver family of 6 is in great need of a car mechanic to continue to care for the kids in their care. Both kinship parents work, but they are unable to cover the costs of having their car repaired, and the Catalytic Converter replaced. They are now relying on friends and family to transport them around to work and school and would be so grateful for any help so they can be self-sufficient.
