This family moved to the states from Peru less than two months ago. They have no beds/bedding to sleep on. The family has an apartment but will sleep on the hard wood floors. Since they just moved here, they are still adjusting to their new lifestyle. Mom and grandma are both working however they are not able to save much money as they are needing to spend their money on necessities such as food and transportation to work. This family is still learning about the resources that are available to help them with this transition however they are in desperate need of beds to sleep on. There is a young 3 year old in the home and I hope that this request could lead to at least one bed for her to sleep in. The family has a kitchen table and chairs but any other furniture that may need a home, I am sure the family would greatly appreciate. Thank you for your consideration!

Hello! I have a 16 year old male that has been struggling to get to school and has diabetes. The teen has an extensive history of trauma, as his dad passed away of alcoholism and his mother is currently homeless and struggling with substance abuse. The teen is currently living with a family friend that took him in to avoid possible foster care placement, and also has children of her own. The teen has been saving money to get a car for reliable transportation to school, and needs $200 more dollars to purchase the car. If he were to walk to school, it would take him about an hour, and this poses a risk for him passing out due to his diabetes. His caregiver leaves early in the morning for work, and is unable to drive him to school. The teen is wanting to get back on track with his academics and be the first one in his family to graduate from high school. We would greatly appreciate the remaining $200 for the teen to be able to purchase a car to get to school. Thank you!!

A single mom is expecting her second child - a baby girl - to be born in December and she is currently raising her son. The client is accessing as much support as she can from a mom's support group, her own grandma and sister, and social services. This mom is working hard with a job in retail and is applying for a second job, but they will not hire her until after the baby has arrived. This mom's car was recently stolen which has added barriers to getting to doctor's appointments and work. After all this mom's efforts to support her family, she is asking for additional help to get a couple of the necessary items she will need for her daughter. She will need a car seat to safely travel with her newborn and this will be a needed item to leave the hospital after giving birth. She is also asking for a pack-n-play as she is looking ahead to the logistics of caring for both her son and daughter together. We ask for new items. If the items are gently used, please be prepared to email photos for the mom's approval. Thank you for your support to this family! Infant Car Seat: Pack-N-Play:
While we don't have access to an infant car seat, we do currently have 2 gently used Packs-N-Play available; the client could choose which one she wants. Also, we are happy to provide diapers and wipes and other infant care essentials. Additionally, we have an abundance of gently used infant clothing, size Newborn to 2T. Please have the client call the Colorado Christian Services office to arrange a time to "shop" for free in our boutique-style Community Resource Room at no cost to her.
