Greetings. I was blessed to have returned 4 children to the household of their biological parents. Unfortunately, bio mom was stricken with Covid. Dad had to stay home with the children and lost his job. He is actively seeking a new job. Bio mom and dad still have to fulfill their services and need help with gas to get to these places, not to forget job interview, kids to school, etc. Please help this family if you will, as they are working so very hard to achieve their goals.
Greetings. if 9 resources come together and give 100 a piece, this goal can be achieved. I have a bio-mom who has been court ordered to have a full psychological evaluation. This mother desires to get her children back. This mom is engaging in a service plan that has been developed to help her get her children back. Please help this mother to achieve this evaluation she needs to complete her journey of success in completing her court ordered services.
Natural parents are in need of funding to pay for drug testing due to their home being under construction from a house fire. Natural parents do not have extra funds at this time. They are currently in reunification with their son living in an RV and doing exceptionally well.
It is a mother and her son living together that has just received a car. The car has stopped running and is sitting in the driveway needing to be fixed. The mother stated that her neighbor advised that it could be a fuel issue. For now her son is riding his bike to school, but when winter comes this could be an issue with him getting to school. The mother is working, but she doe's not make enough money to have the car fixed and pay bills.
This family I am working with has been through a lot. The father is the main caregiver to his two girls. Recently, the father needed to have a triple heart bypass but had to delay his surgery due to his daughter being kidnapped to and taken to California by an older man. His heart bypass surgery was scheduled when his daughter went missing. Thankfully, his daughter has been returned and the perpetrator is being prosecuted by the criminal law. Between the father's medical appointments and his daughters counseling the family is in need of reliable tires for his vehicle. He has been purchasing used tires that have not been reliable. In fact, last week he had another flat tire where he had to change it on the side of the freeway. This dad does his best to take care of his girls, but with his heart disability he cannot work. When I asked the daughter if there was anything I can do for her, she asked if she could get a new mattress for her bed. Her bed is a folded futon mattress on a traditional twin box spring. Both girls beds are this way. Tires and two twin mattresses could really help this family feel some normalcy in their lives.

This family home is in need of repairs. This property is owned by the grandmother who holds this extended family together. She is the glue.
There are several holes in the floor throughout the home plus some gaps in the walls. The holes and openings have allowed insects to enter the home resulting in the children being bitten leaving lasting sores on their bodies. If anyone has any carpentry skills and supplies they could donate, the family would be very grateful! The home was also recently attacked by a domestically violent relative who set fire to the house and broke a window.
Thank you so much for your consideration in helping this family in need and creating a safe environment for these children.

I am currently working with a family with a newborn and a two year old. All adults are disabled and cannot provide additional income to the family. Having a two year old and a newborn is laundry demanding. This family washer broke and they are having to go to the laundry mat. Each trip to the laundry mat is costing a little over twenty dollars. For this family, $80 per month is taking away from basic needs. This family would appreciate any shape of washer as long as it works. I do have a truck and can help with delivery if needed. Updated on September 20, 2022 by an Agency Worker The family is willing to accept a working used washer also. I have a truck I can help deliver if needed.
The mother of two is needing a bus pass for transportation. The mother is wanting to seek employment and make it to scheduled appointments. Some of the local transportation methods have restrictions when you have children and what category the appointment's are for. Also, the family is in need of 2 dressers to put they're clothes in.
During a family visit and house assessment the worker noticed that the family who had just moved into their apartment did not have any dressers to put their clothes in. We are requesting two dressers for a single parent in a two bedroom apartment.
This child was recently placed in this county along with a new school away from her home. At first she was having troubles being in a new place away from home, but she is starting to get adjusted. She informed the worker she is wanting to run for homecoming and is wanting a dress in order to wear the dress to. The child would be very grateful to have a dress because the one dress she has no longer fits her. She does not have a specific dress she is wanting yet because she has not tried anything on and is unsure of her size.

Client in need includes natural mother and her two year old son. Natural mother is engaged in family time with her son and is dedicated to reunifying with him. However she does struggle with poverty and lack of transportation. She would love to attend her necessary treatment services but struggles finding a way to get there. Helping this mother with transportation via uber assistance would go a long way in ensuring she attends treatment which would assist her in reunifying with her son. Her and her son have a strong, loving bond so reunification for this case is key and lack of transportation right now is a major barrier.
There is a father of 4 in need of assistance. His children need to attend regular scheduled appointments but he needs gas cards to help him get to these. He works, but does not get paid for his time off to take the children to their appointments. He would be very appreciative of gas cards (Walmart/QT/Kum&Go) in any amount that anyone would be willing to help with. He is trying his best to care for his children and ensure their needs are met.
Two foster children are entering new placement and are in need of a bunk bed, 2 mattresses, and bedding. The two teenage girls have moved around from home to home, and unfortunately do not have any sheets, blankets, pillows, or other bedding for themselves. The girls will be sharing a room with each other and would benefit from having a bunk bed (and mattresses) in order to save space.
A new foster parent, older in age, took placement of two teens who are infested with head lice. She is overwhelmed with all the washing and cleaning of the home. One child who has very thick hair has to have it professionally treated at the lice clinic, as well as have a haircut. This is a major expense, along with all the continuing of washing. They will receive a discount for having Soonercare.
