I have a placement who is caring for her two teenage nieces after they were abused in their adoptive home, she is wanting to send them to a summer church camp, Grace Church of Arvada, the cost is $150.00 per kid, + a $50 registration. ($350.00 needed total) Their caregiver is hoping to get help covering the costs while she works on becoming a certified foster home provider to care for the girls long term and get them some summer activities to participate in. (Recommendations for other summer activities/camps/events for a 17 y.o. & 11 y.o. would also be appreciated!!!)

We have an amazing single foster mom who is looking forward to spending the summer with her foster son.

This mama has already does so much and we are hoping to bless her and her sweet B with the ultimate summer gift - a brand new bike! We are looking for a boys bike, 12-14 inches.

Caseworker has a family in which 4 children total are placed with Grandmother. The 2 oldest children are 10-year old twins and they really want to be able to participate in their end-of-school-year bookfair. Caseworker talked with the school to see if they had resources to offset the cost to no avail. Caseworker also reached out to other funding sources at Denver Human Services which could not assist either at this time. Caseworker is asking for $70 in gift cards (or whatever amount is possible) so the two children can attend the book fair and pick out books for over the summer that will belong to them. Grandmother is on a budget and does not have the extra income for the children either.

This family is in need of some financial support. At this time all other options have been exhausted, from emergency aid to social security and this family has received nothing but denials with little to no explanation. The family only has $166.00/month of income, and between rent and bills they only have $40.00 left over at the end of the month. By providing gift cards, hygiene items, even clothing it would greatly benefit this family. The family consists of a single mother who is a victim of DV and three daughters ages 16, 14, and 10.

This request is for a mother on my caseload. She is in need of a bike to get to and from her visits with her daughter. It is difficult for her to transport on public transportation due to health and mental issues and so we came up with the idea of possible a bike. As well as assistance with a gas card when her mom's grandma is available to transport her to visits (bad weather, mom's in physical pain, ect).

This mother of two young children has done an amazing job of demonstrating her ability to keep them safe and meet their needs in an age and developmentally appropriate manner during the time she's worked with our agency and program. As such, she is preparing to transition out of requiring professionally supervised family time and will be able to have unsupervised time with her sons in anticipation of reuinification. To help her be successful in this, she needs car seats for both boys so she can provide transportation for them. Any assistance is greatly appreciated as we support this mom in reuniting her family!

We have a family of 7 that recently arrived from the Congo. They don't speak any English, and are not familiar with our Country. They are currently living in a two bedroom apartment and are need desperate need of two queen bed frames and mattresses. Providing this resource will promote the restful night sleep necessary for further success in this new setting. They are the sweetest and kindest family.
Hello, would a used queen mattress and bed frame be acceptable? We have a queen bed frame and mattress (along with two sets of sheets, two pillows, and two throw pillows) that we no longer need. I can provide a picture if that's helpful or answer any questions. Thank you!

I've been emailing with the caseworker and can provide a used queen mattress and bed frame (along with two sets of sheets, two pillows, and two throw pillows) that we no longer need. I will coordinate with our church responders and the caseworker/family for a delivery sometime between May 24 and 29. I will keep the caseworker updated!
A single mom to an 11 year old son and 6 year old daughter is expecting her third in July. She does not have any support from family or the community, and has worked hard to provide for her children on her own. She has maintained stable housing and employment in the midst of hard trials. Right now, she is hoping to prepare for the arrival of her newborn and would benefit from help getting a crib, mattress for the crib, and a nursing pillow. I have attached links to items that are similar to what this mom has in mind. Thank you so much for your support!!
