Our small school provides wrap around case management services to help our high school aged students graduate.

A young mother was living in the streets with a male 25 years older than her. With him she was using multiple substances, using sex to get money, and being subjected to occasional physical abuse by the male. He was manipulating her to control her and use her to gain access to money and drugs. She learned that she was pregnant by the man when she was 6 months pregnant and returned home to her mother for support. her mother has helped her make better choices for the safety of the baby and the health of the both of them. Grandmother has helped to provide items for the baby since the mother had no positive associations, she has obtained almost all needed items with the exception of an infant stroller and swing. Mother is trying to go out to look for jobs and but does not drive so she needs a stroller to be able to take her son out with her if grandmother is not home. She stated that she will sit the baby in his car seat during the day so he is not constantly laying but it would be nice if she had a swing so he is able to move better than he can when strapped in car seat. The family is trying to get Mom back into a routine and has not requested any help from anywhere so they would be greatly appreciative of any help.

The family is in need of help with paying for the fee to an apartment that they were able to get. They also would benefit greatly from a highchair, a kid's bed, and clothing for both children. There is a 4-year-old female child who wears 4T-5T in clothes and 11 in kid's shoes. There is a 2-year-old male child who wears 3T in clothes and 7 in toddler's shoes. Updated on February 21, 2023 by an Agency Worker The family was able to cover housing fee's but could still really use some help on household items for the children to put into the apartment.

The 13 year old wears a mens size medium in shirts and size 32X30 in pants. They are also requesting assistance with purchasing socks and underwear for the boys.
A single caregiver, who recently has had her 2 year old male cousin placed with her, is also the mother of her own 6 children. The caregiver is requesting a set of bunk beds and mattresses for the child because he is currently sleeping on an air bed. In addition, she is seeking help obtaining winter clothing for her cousin. The little boy wears a size 4T clothing. The placement appears to be a long term placement.
