A 17 year old girl on my caseload is now placed in a non-relative kinship home that kindly took her in. She is still in the process of gathering things that the youth needs in her home. My client was using a sleeper sofa to sleep on, however, the sleeper sofa is not as functional as they were hoping it was going to be. My client is way too tall for the sleeper sofa which makes it very difficult for her to try and sleep on it. She could really benefit from having a full size mattress and box spring or supported bed frame. She already has full sized bedding that she can use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A family with four young children (ages 1, 3, 4, and 5) could use help obtaining a toddler mattress and a playpen. They were able to obtain beds for the other three children, but did not have sufficient funds to purchase a toddler mattress and a playpen. The mother is also requesting educational toys, "I know that's extra, but I would really love to be able to get them educational toys if possible." The family does not have much furniture in the house, although they will be receiving two dressers and an arm chair through a previous request. They could also use a couple more dressers, something like plastic ones for children would work great. Thank you for your generosity, this will make a big impact on this family!
Hello, please help this family by providing them with assistance with gas and/or groceries. The children are living with their uncle and Grandmother. The uncle works full time but is needing aid in providing for the two extra children in his home. The grandma is unable to work at this time due to her health. The family is confident if they had a little assistance with some basic needs within the month he would be able to catch up financially and maintain the care for the children. Please help provide this family usually shops at Walmart for groceries or Quick trip card for gas. This will be a great aid to the family as they get settled into their new arrangements. If the family is unable to establish themselves financially with the children the kids may have to live elsewhere which would be detrimental to their emotional state after finally getting comfortable in the home with their family.
