This case includes a single mom and her 12 and 14 year old daughters. Mom and the CASA Volunteer work diligently on the family budget every week and Mom is extremely mindful and honest about her income and how difficult it is for her to meet her daughter’s needs with their limited resources. Mom and caseworker identified a great fall overnight YMCA camp that the girls would absolutely love to attend. Mom was able to identify a scholarship that covers the majority of the camp costs and the remaining balance is $100 per girl, so $200 total. This family would be so grateful for your support!

A mother has worked hard to maintain employment and to secure independent housing. As a result of her hard work and progress, she has recently been reunified with her two sons. They have a two-apartment and need some assistance with gathering items the boys need. The most important thing the family needs at this time is bunk beds with mattresses for the boys. The boys are middle-school age, so the preference would be to have a full-bed over full-bed bunk bed set, if possible. This mother is very eager to gather items the boys need for their new house to become a home for all three of them. Having beds and being able to have adequate sleep is essential for the boys’ continued growth and development. They deserve to have a home and a bedroom that meets their basic needs and is comfortable and inviting. This mother has worked very hard to have a place to call their own and needs a little help!

We have a youth that has been separated from his family for over a year. He seems to struggle with peer relationships and overall self-esteem. The CASA has been spending intentional time with the youth to discover strengths and interests. The youth would like to continue piano lessons and we were able to secure a month of lessons, however we are unable to continue lessons for another month. This has been tremendously impactful and engaging for the youth and has truly been the one thing he has taken to for some time.

The family needs help with plumbing. Mother and her children had moved back into maternal grandparents so that she would be able to get back on her feet. However, maternal grandfather recently passed away and it has been difficult for the family. It's been difficult not only emotionally, but also financially as the grandfather was the main breadwinner in the home as well as mainly taking care of everything in the home. The bills and other needs have been transferred to mother and although she works she is not able to make ends meet for her family. Recently, there had been a leaking water pipe in the home and the family cannot afford to fix it. There is currently damage to the home. Looking for a plumber to at least look at the damage and provide an estimate and perhaps provide repair at a low cost to help the family.

This family recently moved to Colorado. The mother has been in an abusive relationship for the past five years with her current husband who is the stepfather to the children. The stepfather strangled the mother last Saturday and ever since this incident she has been trying to call places for support and resources. The mother was able to get a protection order against the stepfather on Thursday and has been trying to serve him with the papers since. On Thursday night the mother and three children stayed at a hotel to avoid seeing him until the protection order was served. While they were staying at the hotel the stepfather threw away all of the boy's clothes and ruined some of the mothers clothes as well. They are in need of support of getting new clothing. If you are not able to fulfill the full amount but are able to help with some of that anything is appreciated!
