Mother is supporting the children on her own as well as getting them to and from school and the babysitter.

Mother is of need of Rental assistance of $1671.

The child who is 1-year-old attends occupational therapy and the child who is 3-years-old receives Applied Behavior Analysis therapy. Mom’s 13-year-old daughter also attends therapy. Currently, mom’s car is not working. Mom stated that she took her car to the mechanic and mom needs a catalytic converter for her car to be repaired. Mom does not have the funds due to working part-time. Mom has been struggling to take her daughters to the necessary services to meet their needs. Local Family Resource Center has assisted mom in saving money by providing her with basic needs such as food, a bus pass, diapers, and a store gift card. Mom has been getting rides from her neighbor upon availability. Mom explained that she runs late to the appointments or must reschedule due to not having consistent transportation. Due to mom’s car not working and not having the funds to pay for her car, mom has been feeling stressed and her blood pressure was high, so mom had to go to the emergency room and was told to rest and take days off work. Mom has not followed doctor’s orders due to not being able to afford missing work to be able to provide for her children. By being able to have the catalytic converter repair, the mom will be able to have her own functioning vehicle to transport her children to their necessary appointments and reducing the high stress she’s been feeling

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.
