Please consider helping a mother and father with a new convertible car seat for their baby. Today is their baby girl's first birth day and she is in need of a bigger car seat. The parents have been progressing in their case and have been able to move to unsupervised family time with their daughter. They are also transporting her during their family time together. They were previously able to use the foster parents' car seat and were not prepared to have to buy a new one just yet. A new car seat is a big expense for them as they do not have much money. Thank you for your consideration.

Good afternoon. I’m Christina Flowers, a school-based specialist with Union Public Schools. I’m currently working with a family that consists of a single mother with five children 7 years old and younger. This mom recently started a new job and fell behind on her rent while in between jobs. She was also making large payments toward a debt she owed to avoid garnishment. This single mother agreed to a settlement for this debt that required her to pay a certain amount with the balance being written off. She has reached out to multiple resources provided to her but has been unsuccessful with receiving assistance. This mother is seeking assistance to help her family remain in their home. She stated with assistance she’ll be able to maintain her rent moving forward. The monthly rent is $1200, the outstanding balance is $2750, but any amount will be greatly appreciated.

We are in the process of reunifying a mother and her young daughter. This little girl has not been in custody for very long, but her mother has committed herself fully to changing the conditions that brought her into custody in order to bring her daughter home. As this mom is without a driver's license or vehicle, we have provided her with a bus pass to assist with transportation. In order to assist further, this mom has requested a bicycle to use for independent transportation as well. This request is for a bicycle with a basket for an adult woman. Any help is greatly appreciated! This request can be fulfilled via donation as well, we do not need a brand new bicycle. If anyone has a spare that would fit an adult woman (about 5 foot 5 inches tall), that would work as well!

In order to do so she must first get an Alcohol and Drug Substance Abuse Course (ADSAC) assessment done witch costs $160 and needs payed to Human Skills and Resources on her behalf as well, as a $340 fee to the Department of Public Safety.
