I have a family who is currently in an emergency housing situation. The family consists of a single mom with three children. The student is in 8th grade on my campus, but he also has a brother in 12th grade, and a brother that is too young for school. The family was just evicted from their housing situation, and they are staying at a hotel with no mode of transportation or funds. The family is in need of 200.00 dollars to be able to stay in a two bedroom hotel room for the week while they figure out a more permanent option. As of right now, both students are unable to attend school and all four family members are sharing one hotel room. The family's need is very urgent. Any assistance that can be offered is greatly appreciated.
I have a mother of a 14 year old, who is in desperate need of food. The family has been homeless for over 18 months. We have paid for them to be in a hotel for two weeks. Mom receives disability and her girlfriend does work, but they currently do not have any money. They are trying to find a local food bank to go to, but they do not have a car, and do not have any money for transportation. We have not found any that will transport food to them yet. They had food stamps up until the last month, but they did not renew the application before their benefits expired. They have since reapplied and are waiting for them to be approved. The food will need to be dropped off to them.
17 year old teen mom is in need of laptop in order to complete high school. Youth is enrolled in a nom-traditional school setting that will support youth in graduating high school on time. Youth has fallen behind in school due to being a mom and student simultaneously. Youth is an amazing mother and really tries hard to succeed. A laptop will further help youth reach her academic goals in order to further support her transition out of foster care.
Our fully accredited high school is in need of insulated water bottles for students. This will free up financial resources to meet true student needs rather than having to purchase drinking cups and throw them away. Each student could have their own water bottle. We provide full wrap around case management for our students, many of which face homelessness and have poor to no relationships with caring adults.
Our fully accredited high school provides full wrap around case management services for our 27 students, many of which face homelessness and lack of positive adult relationships. As part of our school, lunches are provided and we have a need for 24 oz insulated water bottles so that each student can have their own. This would allow us to put money spent on drinking cups to true student needs.
Summary: Family of middle school student requesting help with groceries and utility bills.
Context: Student comes from a single-parent household, where Mom is a dedicated educator struggling to make ends meet. In the past, the family has struggled with stable housing, but through their hard work and determination, they have improved their situation significantly. However, the start of school has put a strain on their resources, and they are needing help with groceries and their electricity bill. If this need was met even partially, it would help both the student and Mom maintain the stability and wellbeing they have worked so hard to achieve.
There is a single mother with with twins who have recently got her children returned to her. The case is currently on a monitor to return and we are hoping to avoid removing the children again. The mother is months behind on rent and could possibly be evicted soon if she does not make payment. The mother does not have any financial assistance from her family and is trying to do everything on her own. Financial assistance with her rent can help prevent a removal of the children and them coming back into foster care.
Single mom of 3 needs assistance. Her youngest child (5 years old), has disabilities and is medically fragile and has limited mobility. Mom works but often stated she often struggles to make ends meet. Currently she was unable to pay her phone bill so school has no way to contact her should her child have a medical emergency. She has a monthly bill of $70 with Metro PCS and also mentioned struggles with making rent at times.
She is also in need of a wheelchair that can help her meet her child's needs. Currently she carries her child from the car to the class (and other places she needs to get him to) due to not having a wheelchair for her child. The wheelchair would need to have a chest harness and a seatbelt to meet his medical needs.

Combined household including infant, toddler, elderly grandmother, and father with cancer. There is a leak under the kitchen sink they cannot afford to fix on their own. Father is sick and only one who works in home. They have very little money. If this is fixed, it will help them to improve the family home, and prevent further destruction of the cabinet space, and illness from mold.
Kinship caregiver (cousin) took in 4 children and has gotten them the basic essentials however, this has placed a major financial burden on the family and limits on buying anything out of the budget. With a total of 8 children in the home and a single mother raising them she has requested assistance with 2 girls bikes so they can all play outside. The other children have bikes but it leaves 2 of them not being able to participate because of that.

Our fully accredited high school serves 27 students who have not been successful in traditional educational settings. Many of our students face homelessness and lack of involvement with caring adults and parents. We have full "wrap around" case management to help each student succeed. Our students need pants in order to meet our dress code. Students need black or khaki pants with no holes or rips.
It's only been week one and we've already seen several students with "accidents" walking down the hallways. We just want to make this experience easier for them and to help them not lose any instructional time waiting for their parents in the office to change.
