My client who is a young mother of two, is requesting help with getting a Christmas tree for her home. After a long year, this young mother has reunified with her children and has them both in her care just in time for the holidays. We are asking for help to make this holiday special by helping her get a Christmas tree for her home to really bring out the holiday spirit. We have referred to her and her children to our gift program so her children can receive gifts this Christmas and all she needs is a Christmas tree to be able to put those gifts under.

Urgent! The child, 7 month old girl, was removed from her mother and placed in the care of her father who is homeless. The weather in Palmdale is below 50 degrees at night.

This family consists of father and his two children who are ages 10 and 12. The children were recently released into their father’s care and they are in dire need as father has limited resources. The children came into father’s care unexpectedly and the children were unable to bring any of their belongings with them. Father had to quit his job because they did not accommodate his schedule now that he has to care for his two children on his own.
Father is struggling immensely and has little community and familial support. Father does not have the means to purchase beds for the children to sleep in and has asked for assistance. Father has limited space in his home and could use a bunk bed set and bedding for the children to sleep on. The children have few essential items such as a change of clothes and shoes, and in general require more clothing items. The children deserve a bed to get restful sleep at night for school. They appropriate and a sufficient amount of clothing to feel confident, increase their self-esteem in order to thrive in their classroom and among their peers at school. With the approaching holiday season and cold weather upon us, a warm bed and appropriate clothing would benefit the children immensely, due their abrupt change in living situation. This assistance and support would help father and children restore their faith the intentions of the department and in their community, as we only hope to keep their family together.

Please help us assist a mother that is severely isolated.
The mother previously relied on the father and his family for all of her support. The father on the case began using drugs and became very physically assaultive toward mother. The mother asked for help and was able to get into a DV shelter and with their assistance was able to move into a home in the city of Barstow. The mother continues to be vulnerable as she lacks supports and resources. Additionally, she is responsible for raising five children that range in age from one to eight. The family would benefit beds as the children currently sleeping on the floor.
