Foster Source regularly receives requests for non-certified kinship caregivers in need of safety items. Non-certified kin can become certified and receive much needed financial assistance just like traditional foster parents. One of the requirements for certification are safety items - 5lb fire extinguishers, cabinet locks/outlet covers, medicine lock boxes, and carbon monoxide & smoke detectors. We could use your help in getting these items so that when families make the request, we have them on hand to distribute in a timely fashion. If you are able to provide any of these items (in any quantity), they can be delivered to our office within the Adams County Human Services Building (Westminster) or we can arrange a pick up. Thank you for helping us with this frequent and urgent need!
This youth has been in the foster care system for most of her teenage life. Parents rights were terminated and it has been a struggle for this youth to get stabilized. We were recently able to find her a kinship placement and stabilize the youth, however she has no belongings of her own. This youth turns 18 in a few months and will then be a part of the Foster Youth in Transition program and is trying to get belongings of her own. The current placement does not have a bed and this youth is sleeping on the couch currently. The kinship provider is working to fix the basement, which just flooded adding a financial burden, into a room for the youth and is hoping for some help purchasing a bed for this youth so that she feels more stabilized and at home.

I have been working with this family for about two years. At this point, maternal grandparents are nearing adoption for their three grandchildren who are 4, 5, and 13. Prior to this, I worked with the children's biological parents in an attempt to reunify. Biological mother selflessly relinquished her parental rights after deciding she was not going to be able to safely care for her kids and knowing her parents would be the best home for the kids. Mom struggled with addiction and as of lately had started coming around to help out with the kids again as she had gotten sober and wanted to help her parents out. We received the news on 5/18 that mom had passed away and it was likely related to an overdose.
The family is heartbroken and grandparents are doing whatever they can to get things in order and care for the kids. They are needing assistance in burial costs and anything would help. This request is asking for anything to be done regarding mom's funeral and memorial.

Child does not have many toys that she can access. Provider made suggestions for the request for these purposes:
"These books have vibrant colors and strong visual support. The text is repetitive and predictable for (child). There are sliding doors throughout the book, which will keep (child) engaged and she make predictions about what comes next. Colors can be targeted as well as body parts. Rhyming can also be targeted as well."
"The lift and flap books and the wooden latch puzzles are sturdy, interactive and engaging for (child). The colorful pictures provide great visual support to boost receptive and expressive language. Action words, nouns, concepts (locative, sequential), etc can be targeted when playing with these. (child) can follow directions (open the....close the....find the....point to....) and take turns with a relative who plays with her."
