Currently working with a single dad who has been sober for 5 years. He has been fighting to gain custody of his 2 girls for the past 4 years and now the courts have awarded 50% custody. He found an affordable place to live but has nothing since he was staying with family. The pace is really small so he doesn't need to much, he will be sleeping in the living room so a sofa bed or futon will work.

Hello, I am making this request for a family of 9. This family recently reunited and the Department is working on stabilizing the family. The mother was provided housing by the Family Reunification Program, and is in great need with assistance to furnish the home. Previously, the mother and the children were living with the maternal grandmother, which was causing a lot of discomfort, due to there being a large amount of people living in the home. The children have stated they are thrilled to be living in a home for themselves, and are looking forward to making their new home, feel like home. The mother is currently employed, but is only making enough to support the children and additional bills. The children's ages include: 15, 14, 13, 11, 10, 9, 8, 5. The mother is hopeful she can have a large sectional couch, in order to be able to sit the children during family time.
The client is a single mother, 64 years old caregiver raising her 3 nephews, ages 16, 15 and 12. The client is working with the YMCA Kinship Support Program to access ongoing resources but is currently in need of two twin beds with mattresses. The caregiver is having financial struggles and she only has money for basic needs. When this need is met, client will be able to provide adequate bedding for the children.

Single mother and her 4 children (ages: 13, 3, 2, and 1). The child who is 2-years-old, attends physical and speech therapy. The child who is 1-year-old attends occupational therapy and the child who is 3-years-old receives Applied Behavior Analysis therapy. Mom’s 13-year-old daughter also attends therapy. Currently, mom’s car is not working. Mom stated that she took her car to the mechanic and mom needs a catalytic converter for her car to be repaired. Mom does not have the funds due to working part-time. Mom has been struggling to take her daughters to the necessary services to meet their needs. Local Family Resource Center has assisted mom in saving money by providing her with basic needs such as food, a bus pass, diapers, and a store gift card. Mom has been getting rides from her neighbor upon availability. Mom explained that she runs late to the appointments or must reschedule due to not having consistent transportation. Due to mom’s car not working and not having the funds to pay for her car, mom has been feeling stressed and her blood pressure was high, so mom had to go to the emergency room and was told to rest and take days off work. Mom has not followed doctor’s orders due to not being able to afford missing work to be able to provide for her children. By being able to have the catalytic converter repair, the mom will be able to have her own functioning vehicle to transport her children to their necessary appointments and reducing the high stress she’s been feeling

This request is being made for a single parent and her two young children. The children, ages 6 months and 2 years old, and their mother are currently residing in an apartment that has hard flooring. The mother is asking for an alphabet foam floor puzzle play mat in order to provide her 6-month-old with safer environment while he learns to crawl and navigate around on the floor and continues to develop his physical abilities. The mat would also provide the 2-year-old with a safer play area. The mother is also in need of a double stroller for her two young children. The single parent is on a very limited income and unable to purchase the items on her own. It is our belief that the family would benefit greatly with the addition of a foam floor play mat and a double stroller. The acts of regular floor play are an important stage of development for a 6-month-old with numerous benefits to a child’s growth and development, as well as for a 2-year-old who is full of energy. The parent will also benefit greatly from being able to travel easier and safer with both children seated securely in a double stroller. Thank you for your consideration.

The client is a single parent in her late 40s caring for her 15yo bio-son and her 4yo daughter (who is biologically considered a Non-Related-Extended-Family-Member). While the client does receive a little financial assistance/help around the house from her long-term best friend/roommate, the client has been raising her daughter since she was just a few months old with no official financial assistance. Though the client is looking into applying for CalWORKs, those funds wouldn’t kick in for a least another few months. Since raising her, the client has co-slept with her daughter. While this has worked in the past, as her daughter continues to grow, the client has been hoping to get her, her own “big-girl” bed. Ideally the client would like a Twin sized bed/mattress so that it will continue to fit her daughter as she grows. The family is also requesting a $150 gift card to Target if possible. Those funds would go towards bedding and pillow for the daughter, as well as other household needs—hygiene supplies, cleaning supplies, etc. The client has expressed her gratitude with whatever assistance the family is able to get.
