Due to the number of children in the home, they would benefit greatly from a bunk bed system containing 3 twin beds for space and the safety of the children.

This young teen foster child was reunified with her biological family, however she never has a chance to pack up all of her belongings. Especially as the weather gets colder she is in need of some more of her clothes. The foster home and biological family have tried to coordinate a time to meet up, however the family lives several hours away. Schedules and distance have prevented them from being able to get her belongings to her. This request is for financial assistance to help cover the cost of shipping for this single foster mom so that she can send some of the needed clothing and some of the child's most cherished items to her. We are very grateful for any assistance that can be provided!

This family is in need of a toddler bed frame (they have a mattress) to ensure that the toddler (2 years) have a safe place to sleep. The bedframe was unfortunately broken during the family's move to a new location. Proving the family with a bedframe will not only keep the toddler within the rails of the frame for safety, but it will also help enhance the toddler's quality of sleep and eliminate dream dancing. It is important that a toddler have their own bed to avoid night walking, to enhance their autonomy, and avoid them wanting to co-sleep with parents.
