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.
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. Youth has fallen behind in school due to being a mom and student simultaneously. Youth is an amazing mother and really tries hard to succeed. 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.
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.

A single mother of two children, 11 year old son and 16 year old daughter. Mother is needing services to help her clean her home. Her son has behavioral issues that causes him to destroy items in their home and mom works full-time, so it is hard for her keep her home as tidy as she would like. She previously worked with a cleaning company but she is not able to afford it as of recent due to it being too expensive.
A single mom with a teenage son has allowed a friend/single mom and her two children to move into their apartment. There is not room for extra beds, but an queen size air mattress for the second mom, storage bins for clothes, and children's clothes themselves would help these two families organize the space they are sharing.
The Department has PMC of the two children in need as their parents are awaiting trial in jail and have not been a big part of the children't lives in two years. The Department is requesting assistance with insurance for Chromebooks needed for school to assist the children with working during school hours and doing homework. The children are in a group home that is only able to meet their basic needs.
there is a large family who have almost no furniture in the home. they have a pile of dirty clothes because they have no washer or dryer. the family has a low income and needs help. Updated on August 30, 2023 by an Agency Worker Some of the items in the request have been fulfilled (all of the car and booster seats) by the CAC. The family only needs beds, mattresses, bed sheets, and a washer/dryer now. They need the washer/dryer most of all. Those are items that the CAC cannot really obtain.
There are 6 kids in the home-
8 yo girl
6 yo boy (with autism)
5 yo girl
3 yo boy
2 yo boy
And a 1 yo girl
This family would greatly benefit from a washer/dryer and would actually eliminate many of the concerns CPS has been receiving about the family
Our fully accredited high school serves 27 students who have not been successful in traditional educational settings. Many of our students face homelessness and lack of involvement with caring adults and parents. We have full "wrap around" case management to help each student succeed. Our students need pants in order to meet our dress code. Students need black or khaki pants with no holes or rips.
It's only been week one and we've already seen several students with "accidents" walking down the hallways. We just want to make this experience easier for them and to help them not lose any instructional time waiting for their parents in the office to change.
