Hello, I am making this request for a family of 9. This family recently reunited and the Department is working on stabilizing the family. The mother was provided housing by the Family Reunification Program, and is in great need with assistance to furnish the home. Previously, the mother and the children were living with the maternal grandmother, which was causing a lot of discomfort, due to there being a large amount of people living in the home. The children have stated they are thrilled to be living in a home for themselves, and are looking forward to making their new home, feel like home. The mother is currently employed, but is only making enough to support the children and additional bills. The children's ages include: 15, 14, 13, 11, 10, 9, 8, 5. The mother is hopeful she can have a large sectional couch, in order to be able to sit the children during family time.
The client is a single mother who recently ended her relationship with the father due to ongoing domestic violence. The mother is strong a resilient. To continue to ensure her child's safety, the mother would like to purchase cameras to place in her window to provide further surveillance for her home until she can move to a new apartment, however, she currently does not have the funds for the expense. As such, I am requesting Target/Walmart/Amazon gift cards to assist the mother with the cost of cameras.

We are asking for financial assistance for a mother, 31 years old, who is ill and placed in a nursing care facility due to her critical medical issues. Mother is blind in one eye and has 9% kidney function. Despite her medical condition, Mother continues to work on reunification. The mother visits with her children at the nursing home facility, but due to her medical status, she is unable to work and has zero source of income. Her children are older, 14 and 16. We are requesting a financial donation for a mother to use on her visits with her children. The mother would like to be able to offer the children a meal, go out of the facility, buy them something, or purchase things she and the children can use during the visits. Any financial assistance received will be used to strengthen the bond and quality of the visits with the children, while they still have their mother. The mother has a parent partner assigned who is helping her come up with activities she can do during the visit with her children. It is unknown if the mother will receive a transplant donation, so the time of the visits is crucial for these children.

Mother is supporting the children on her own as well as getting them to and from school and the babysitter. She is doing her best to support her family but due to appointments related to the case, court case, medical and other services that DCFS is requesting the family to do, the mother has had to take a lot of time off, and since she just started the job she has no paid time off. Mother is of need of Rental assistance of $1671. By assisting the family with the rent, it would be helpful from preventing the family from being evicted and for the children and mother being homeless. Thank you for your consideration.

This family just experienced a car accident that totaled the family's only mode of transportation. Unfortunately, the mothers insurance would only cover a rental car for a couple of days. Now, she is having to pay for a rental car out-of-pocket which is causing extreme financial stress. Mother is a single mother of 3 kids, 10-year-old, 6-year-old, and 6-year-old, and only makes around $2,200 a month which is considered low income. Her rent is $1,100 which takes most of her budget. Her student's have had difficulty getting to school on time since the accident because she cannot afford the rental car every week. Without a car, it takes the family about 40 minutes each day to walk to-and-from school, and Mother is unable to get to work to provide for her family. The mother is requesting a used car or cash to help with a down payment on a car. This mom would be very thankful for any support as getting this critical need met will ultimately provide some stability for her and all her children in this difficult time.
The family recently had their children returned to them. They have three children. They are need of a bunk bed (new or used) for the two older children and a pack and play style crib/bed for the baby. The children will have reliable beds and the pack and play will make things easier for the mother.

This request is being made for a single parent and her two young children. The children, ages 6 months and 2 years old, and their mother are currently residing in an apartment that has hard flooring. The mother is asking for an alphabet foam floor puzzle play mat in order to provide her 6-month-old with safer environment while he learns to crawl and navigate around on the floor and continues to develop his physical abilities. The mat would also provide the 2-year-old with a safer play area. The mother is also in need of a double stroller for her two young children. The single parent is on a very limited income and unable to purchase the items on her own. It is our belief that the family would benefit greatly with the addition of a foam floor play mat and a double stroller. The acts of regular floor play are an important stage of development for a 6-month-old with numerous benefits to a child’s growth and development, as well as for a 2-year-old who is full of energy. The parent will also benefit greatly from being able to travel easier and safer with both children seated securely in a double stroller. Thank you for your consideration.
