A 16 year old female is in need of a dresser (preferably white or black) and winter clothing as she is placed out of the home in kinship care. The family has recently moved into a new apartment so the child can have her own room but is needing assistance completing some of her basic needs. Providing this child with a dresser and winter clothing would help preserve the placement and make it feel more at home. The child wears an adult S/M in shirts, pants, and coat.

There is a 14 year old male in need of shoes and clothing. The youth is currently placed in residential care and does not have many belongings, including shoes and clothing. The youth has had a rough upbringing, coming a background of neglect and elopement and has finally established himself in his residential care placement. He has been making constant improvements, however, since he spent a lot of time being on the run and having to fend for himself with no support, he has no proper shoes or clothing, especially pieces that are suitable for winter and the cold weather. The youth receives no support from parents or family and would greatly appreciate someone being kind enough to help him buy clothing.

This family has been working hard to make the efforts to ensure the best safety of their children, and to close the case. One example of an effort is that the family recently got a new place in a better neighborhood and community for their two girls. The father has also gotten a new job and started working, however, there will be a delay before he gets his first check and they will not have the money in time for the first months rent.
