A three year old boy is approaching overnights with the father to reunify after the agency became involved due to allegations of neglect by the mother and father. The father has made significant progress in following through with his case plan goals and court ordered services. The father has been applying to new positions as he currently has two interviews scheduled. The father has been doing small jobs in the meantime so as to continue to have some type of income. The father has had the support of his family whom have provided food and other utilities for him. The father has also reached out to local churches and or free produce (fliers) the undersigned has provided him with. The father is in need of $500 for his November rent. If granted the funds to help with one month’s rent, the father will be able to catch up with rent and continue to make his payments afterwards, thus enabling the father to continue to progress, be able to provide stability for the child, and continue with liberalizing the father’s visits to overnights by the end of the month and eventually reunify.

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.
