This is a first-time foster care placement for a sweet family in Littleton. The foster boys are 5weeks old and 14months old. The 14month old is being d/c'd from the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Today. This couple is scrambling to get all necessary items for these two boys' care. Would you be willing to come alongside them in the purchase of a baby bathtub? They would be so very grateful for your support as they are working out all emotional and physical detail needs for these two littles.
We have a gently used baby bathtub we are happy to provide this family. In addition, we have diapers and wipes they are welcome to have. 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.

We are reaching out to the amazing CarePortal Community with a request to support three children and their single foster mom. On Friday, our foster mom said yes to a sibling group of three. They were at her home within a couple of hours with very few belongings of their own and by the next day it was clear that the children had come to the home with lice and severely matted hair. The foster mom sprung into action but was met with some astronomical fees that she was not anticipating. We are estimating that each child's (3 total) treatment and evaluation of lice will cost about $270 each and with three children it would be an incredible blessing to come along side this mom and lessen that burden. If you can contribute any amount to these kids and the foster mom who has truly stepped up in so many ways to keep these kids together AND get them the care they need it would be greatly appreciated!
Navigator is working with a single mother of 2 boys who is currently struggling financially. Client needs coats, hats and gloves for her 2 sons. Gently used coats are acceptable or maybe gift cards to help the family purchase coats for the kids. The kids are in kids sizes 9 and 7. I believe these are size mediums.

This kinship caregiver is a single grandmother. She and two of the kids have some health issues that is making this a high need request. The family has been having issues with mice in the home! The kids are scared and the grandmother is worried about the kids and her getting sick from the droppings. They have tried putting out their own traps and are not having success. The grandmother contacted an exterminator for a quote for them to come and help. This grandmother struggles to make ends meet as is, so this kind of expense is not possible for her.

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.
