An awesome single mother and her smart and beautiful 3 year old twin toddler daughters, whose smiles and contagious laughs would light up your life, are in desperate need of a few items to help with making their home function a little bit smoother. Now that both girls are attending Prek, the mother has been working hard to maintain structure and routine in her home. One need she has expressed is being able to have a dining table that she and her daughters can sit at together to have meals and complete homework and craft projects. The mother has also requested assistance with getting a washer and dryer. She is still working to potty train her daughters, which has been getting better but it been challenging for her to keep clean clothes and linen in her home. She doesn’t have a vehicle or live in an apartment that has a laundromat so it can be a bit challenging during the week with trying to do laundry and ensure the girls have clean uniforms daily. Due to many toilet training mishaps, the girls are in need of new mattresses and linen for their toddler beds. These precious girlies can also use toy boxes, toddler girl clothes, and night time pull-ups. This mother has many cognitive and mental health challenges, and she experienced various setbacks throughout her. She has overcome being neglected and abused during her childhood, and losing custody of her oldest children, whom she has been able to reconnect with, and she is now moving forward after being a victim of domestic violence. As this mother continues to work on obtaining financial stability, she and her daughters are in a much happier and healthier place and every day gets better. The mother is seeking assistance with creating a resume and with learning how to count money. This mother is willing to accept used items and this request is not for new items only. The primary caseworker is able to pick up and deliver items to the family, including appliance and furniture items. These request will assist this family with more greater days to come!!! Thank you so so much in advance for choosing to support this family!!
The paternal grandmother for a sibling group of 8 is in dire need of beds and bedding for her grandchildren. The paternal grandmother has stepped up to preserve the sibling bond amongst her grandchildren and keep them all together, but desperately needs a safe/appropriate sleeping arrangement for all 8 children. The Department located the children in a 2 bedroom apartment (with the bio parents). The children had no food, clothes, sleeping arrangements or access to shower. The children have all experienced abuse and neglect. Grandma is desperately trying to keep the children out of foster care, and together.
I have a pregnant mom sleeping on an air mattress and could really use better support as she is 7 months pregnant. If she couldn't get a full-size bed, I am sure she would be happy with a twin. She is single with 3 other children and has worked very hard to get where she is right now. She is currently pregnant with a baby girl. She could use anything to help her get prepared for her arrival.
I have a family who is currently in an emergency housing situation. The family consists of a single mom with three children. The student is in 8th grade on my campus, but he also has a brother in 12th grade, and a brother that is too young for school. The family was just evicted from their housing situation, and they are staying at a hotel with no mode of transportation or funds. The family is in need of 200.00 dollars to be able to stay in a two bedroom hotel room for the week while they figure out a more permanent option. As of right now, both students are unable to attend school and all four family members are sharing one hotel room. The family's need is very urgent. Any assistance that can be offered is greatly appreciated.
The caregiver is a paternal aunt currently caring for her two nieces ages 1 1/2 years and 6 months old. The children were removed from their home of origin due to abuse/neglect. The caregiver is willing to provide long term care should the need arise. The caregiver is in need of a toddler bed for the older child as it would create a better sleeping space for her. Providing assistance to the family would be a great help as they are experiencing some financial restraints.
17 year old teen mom is in need of laptop in order to complete high school. Youth is enrolled in a nom-traditional school setting that will support youth in graduating high school on time.

A laptop will further help youth reach her academic goals in order to further support her transition out of foster care.
The kinship caregivers are requesting a convertible car seat for the youngest female child that CPS has placed in their care. This 22-month-old is growing quickly and will soon outgrow her current car seat. The ideal car seat would hold a child with the weight of up to 90/100 lbs. The family stated they were also looking for a highchair and/or toddler seat that would fit onto a kitchen chair. This will allow the family to properly feed the child without holding her while they are attempting to eat. The family has been very diligent in meeting the children's needs and are only lacking these two items. At this time the family does not qualify for kinship funds so these items would be very much appreciated if they are able to be supplied.
Our fully accredited high school is in need of insulated water bottles for students. This will free up financial resources to meet true student needs rather than having to purchase drinking cups and throw them away. Each student could have their own water bottle. We provide full wrap around case management for our students, many of which face homelessness and have poor to no relationships with caring adults.
Our fully accredited high school provides full wrap around case management services for our 27 students, many of which face homelessness and lack of positive adult relationships. As part of our school, lunches are provided and we have a need for 24 oz insulated water bottles so that each student can have their own. This would allow us to put money spent on drinking cups to true student needs.
Summary: Family of middle school student requesting help with groceries and utility bills.
Context: Student comes from a single-parent household, where Mom is a dedicated educator struggling to make ends meet. In the past, the family has struggled with stable housing, but through their hard work and determination, they have improved their situation significantly.

There is a single mother with with twins who have recently got her children returned to her. The case is currently on a monitor to return and we are hoping to avoid removing the children again. The mother is months behind on rent and could possibly be evicted soon if she does not make payment. The mother does not have any financial assistance from her family and is trying to do everything on her own. Financial assistance with her rent can help prevent a removal of the children and them coming back into foster care.
