Mom and dad have 5 children together and the father brought 2 additional children. The beds are for an 8 year old little girl and a 10 year old little girl. Their current sleeping arrangement is the two little girls sleep with their mother when dad is on the road as a truck driver, or they sleep with siblings when dad is home. The family is asking for two twin beds and mattresses. This would allow for each child to have their own bed and their own space to sleep.

Please help this single mother of 6. The mother was evicted after paying her rent up for several months and did not get her money back. This caused her to move into a 2 bed hotel with her and her children. While at the hotel her large suv was stolen and now she has no transportation to take her kids to school. I am asking for anyone who can help provide a rental car for the mom until she can hear back from the insurance company and/or save more money to get her own. I also am asking for someone to help with new hotel in a safer area for her and her kids for up to a month. Anything you can do for this family will be helpful!
A single mother of three is in need of beds for her children. The children are 10(male), 13(male), and 17(female). They have recently moved into their own apartment and they have been sleeping on air mattresses. If the family is able to receive these items, it will help them feel more comfortable in their new home.
A 3 month little boy was placed in the care of his grandparents while his mom works on getting necessary treatment. The home they live in had a roach infestation and although they have treated it multiple times they continue to have roaches. We would like to see if there is someone within the faith based community that works in pest control that be willing to donate their services to professionally treat the home.
The mother in this case is a single mom of 3 children under the age of 5, 2 girls and 1 boy. She was raised in the foster care system and has a very limited support system. She recently got a job after being unemployed for 2 months and moved into a new apartment and does not have a washer and dryer. She does not have extra income to use a laundry mat and has been washing the clothes in the sink for the time being. A washer and dryer would be extremely helpful to this family.
Help us get a set of four siblings placed together with their maternal family. We currently have four siblings split into different homes. One of the kinship placements would like to take placement of the other two children so they can all be together. The family needs help with getting a set of bunk beds for the two boys.
Kinship caregiver is maternal grandmother for 2 infants, they are 15 months old (M) and 4 months old (F). She is in need of a double stroller to get around with both children. 15 month old just started walking and is still wobbly, 4 month old just started rolling. Caregivers work full-time and children attend daycare through the week. They are currently working on their license for adoption and are very busy, they would benefit from continued community support.
Maternal grandmother is caring for two toddlers who were removed from the care of their parents. She desires to provide long term care for the children in her home. The grandmother has recently moved into a larger space to accommodate the children, but is in need of living room furniture. Due to financial restraints, the grandmother is unable to afford furniture. Assistance would be greatly appreciated.
