This request is for a 17yo student that resides with 3 other siblings and a single parent. I became aware of this student's need by a school counselor. I have connected with the family and have identified that this family is in need of and can benefit from financial assistance with an overdue utility bill from the summer. I am aware that this family has been struggling financially while the parent searched for employment. Parent stated that they are now employed and starts today. Parent stated that the financial assistance would be more so to catch up with their overdue balance of $500 for electricity from the summer. If not all can be covered, any funds toward their balance would greatly be appreciated. Thank you for your support and for your consideration in meeting this need.

Looking for help for a fictive kin placement who is taking permanent custody of two children, but is needing help with daycare to maintain permanent care. Due to a freeze in state funding for daycare, the family cannot get help from the state to fund the daycare. The two young children are under 5 and are very happy and comfortable in the home. They are well taken care of and the caretaker can afford to meet their daily needs while working full time, but cannot afford to also pay for daycare. Without daycare they would not be able to work and afford to take care of the kids whom they love dearly and want to keep out of the foster care system. This family is hoping for help from the community to assist with daycare for at least the next six months until they can get further daycare. The cost of daycare is extremely high for all families in today's world and we are hopeful that those who are able will help contribute to meeting these children's needs. The daycare that they attend helps them with learning educationally and with social skills. The total cost of daycare without assistance for the two children is about $2,300 a month. For six months to be fully covered, they would need $13,800

They are in need of clothing size 12 month for a girl and they are in need of size 6-9 months clothing for a boy. The family has 2 parents, however, only one parent is able to work at this time.
