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.

Help two aged out foster youth with a baby together! They are trying to love each other, honor their marriage, and love the Lord well. The fact that they are still together after getting pregnant and married as teenagers is a miracle, especially with a now 5 year old. She works full time online and he recently got laid off because the location he worked at closed, he is actively looking for work. He has always had a job, he is a great provider. They bought their daughter a mattress because they could only afford one, and they are sleeping on the floor. They could really use a queen mattress and platform frame.
