I am currently working with a mother of two with severe mental health issues. She has been unable to work and owes $2200 for her gas bill. They turned off her gas this week and will not turn it back on until she pays $1250. We were able to find a community resource that will pay $500 if we are able to come up with the remaining $750. The mother is working to get into vocational rehab at this time as well as additional mental health services. The gas in her home is for her stove, hot water heater, and heat. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you for considering this request and for all your support in our community!
The parents have three children, a boy, age eight and two girls, age five and six. The eight-year-old is Autistic and the parents have been in the home since August of 2020. Dad said he lost his job at Walmart due to being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and they became behind in rent. He took on temp jobs and his wife is currently starting a job as well to help with the income. Dad said for a few weeks the temp agency had very few jobs and they weren’t able to pay the past due and current rent, along with bills. They are wanting help so they can keep their home and keep the eight-year-old in the same school due to his Autism. Please and thanks for any consideration!!

Single mother of a two-year-old who receives no support from child's dad. She recently had to put her mother on hospice and her dad had emergency surgery. She was working at MWSU until she missed too much work taking care of her dad. She has checked several resources, but none were able to help because she is not working. It is hard for her to ask for help, but she is facing eviction. She owes 1,714.00. She is going to check about getting on housing but that won't help with her eviction.

Hello! KVC is asking for a donation of two sets of bunk beds and 4 mattresses to go on the frames. We recently had a set of grandparents take in 6 of their grandchildren and are in need of proper sleeping arrangements. Due to the size of the rooms the children are sharing, bunk beds would be the most efficient option for this family. We would really love to keep all 6 of these siblings together, but they need to have proper sleeping arrangements to do so. We appreciate your consideration in advance. God bless!
A single mom is in need of beds for her and her three children after obtaining her own housing. She has been financially struggling after losing several jobs when her eldest repeatedly ran away and mother would take off from work to look for her. Things are looking brighter now, and she is in need of beds for their home as they've all been sleeping on the floor. They would need two twin mattresses and two full-sized mattresses preferably, but are willing to have anything. If it's within your means, they will also need frames. Mother and the children's favorite colors are black and red.
Part of the reason for the referral in this case was lack of housing stability. When the police came into this home (of ten children) there were only two toddler sized mattresses for all ten children. The parents have since acquired some appropriate bed arrangements but still need two bunk beds (four beds, 2 bunks) and a toddler bed frame. Any additional bedding or housing things for children 3mo-18 would be extremely helpful to reunify this family.
The child in need is a young kiddo getting into Gymnastics. She has been loving it and everytime we go for visits she shows us her new "tumbling" skills. Placement reports that she's never seen the kiddo smile brighter than landing a tough move being taught at Gymnastics. It always makes me feel safer with my clients knowing they have activities to keep them busy that are productive, safe and fun lead by trusted individuals and organizations.
We would be happy to help fund this request.

The Agency Worker we received to arrange this connection is inaccurate. Can the current agency worker contact Faith Walkers Outreach with instruction or we receive send approval to send refund to the responder?
This request is to help a child (14) in foster care who has recently joined their respective schools dance team attend a competition in March of 2024 in Florida. The child this donation would be helping has had an uncanny ability to remain positive given a difficult situation they have been in for over a year now. During every interaction with them they show how they are up beat, personable, caring, and kind. Along with this showing how much they have grown as an individual since entering foster care. This opportunity is something that this child has expressed a great deal of interest in being able to go to and smiles when discussing it. Any donations to help aid in the ability for this child to attend this trip is greatly appreciated not only by her, her placement, but by the case manager requesting this as well. Thank you.
This mother was working 2 jobs while pregnant and trying to save up before giving birth. Her son came early though and was very premature. She has stopped working to be with him at the hospital and is attempting to breastfeed him since that is best for all babies but especially premature babies, but she now cannot afford her rent. She will likely be off for at least 8 weeks. Her rent is $1,300.00.
The mother may be able to return to work after 8 weeks to maintain her livelihood, but in the meantime needs extra support since she had tried to plan for this event and the baby had other ideas about when to be born Updated on May 10, 2023 by an Agency Worker Mom now has an eviction notice with a baby about to come home from the NICU and this request is even more urgent. Help would allow this baby to go home with his mother.
