Critical Request
Hello! We have a family in need of assistance with rent as soon as possible. They are past due on their rent for January in the amount of $550. The family had their baby earlier than expected, but dad has continued to work and mom returned to work 9 days after having the baby. They are working very hard to adapt to life with a new baby and get caught up on their bills. The family and the case manager has contacted several resources, but none had the funds available to help. If anyone is able to help with the full amount or even a portion of the amount, please reach out.

I am a case manager for our Gang Reduction & Youth Development program (GRYD) working with youth ages 10 – 15 years old. I am currently working with a family of 6, primarily with one youth who is actively involved in our pro-social activities by attending Baking Class, Gaming, and Photography. Family is very consistent in attending meetings and participating in community events. Youth is an 8th grade attending Pacoima Middle school and in the Cadets program, soon to graduate to enter high school. The youth that I work with shared a bunk bed with his older brother, but unfortunately because of wear and tear the bed broke and fell apart. The family kept the bottom mattress and the brothers take turn sleeping on the bed and on the living room couch. Youth is in need of a queen size bed that he can share with his brother. Youth is too tall and big to fit in a twin bed and because the amount of space available youth and brother would benefit from sharing a queen size bed. This gift will not only directly help the youth I am working with, but also his brother and will alleviate the family from stress and worry of not being able to financially provide a bed for their sons. Both siblings will be able to get a restful night of good sleep, it will promote more energy for the following day at school which will help them stay awake and focus in class. Below are a few options I found on Walmart website:

A single aunt is willing and able to be placement to her 4 year old and 5 month old nieces after her mother gave notice on being placement due to some health issues, however she is short a bed for the 4 year old. She does have 3 of her own children living in the home. In order to make the placement work temporarily, she will be having her 4 year old niece sleep in her 9 year old daughter's bed and her 9 year old will be sleeping in her room. Placement is looking for a twin size bunk bed for the 4 year old and the 9 year old as the 4 year old is tall for her age and may not fit into a toddler size bed and the 9 year old will not fit into a toddler size bed.

Hi I just received a call from this single mom who has been staying in motels because her sister got a boyfriend and her and her kids had to leave their shared apartment unexpectedly. She originally came from West Texas to get away from a domestic violent situation and moved in with her sister. She is waitressing and doesn't have a car. She ran out of money today and her kids get off the bus at 3:50. She needs money for her motel room for a couple more days until she can get into a shelter. Her plan is to go to the police and have them find a shelter that will take her but I wanted to see if her room could be kept through the weekend. The cost of the motel room is $65 per night. Requesting $195. It would be very helpful to get her through this weekend until further help can be found on Monday for housing.

Kayla was not sure what she was going to do with her pregnancy when she first came to A&A. She was separated from her husband and had gotten pregnant with another FOB. That FOB promised to help with financial expenses associated with having the baby, but now that she's had the baby, he has been telling her he won’t help anymore financially if she doesn’t agree to his demands. Kayla parents 4 children and shares custody of the first 3 with their father. She worked 2 jobs while pregnant and was able to figure out how to cover most expenses. She has been struggling with lack of income due to maternity leave, and her current job won’t give her full time hours until March. She has applied for state help but is still awaiting approval for those. Kayla is requesting help with a past due electric bill ($215) as well as some gift cards to help her and her children. $100 in gas and $100 in grocery.

High Urgency Request
A young mother with an infant with complex medical issues is needing a mini fridge to store his life sustaining total parenteral nutrition (TPN). Having a separate mini fridge is helpful to ensuring the TPN is kept sterile, which lowers the infant's chances for potentially deadly central line infections. If possible, it would be helpful to have the fridge delivered to the family's home due to this infant currently being admitted to the hospital.

Single mom of 3 children is in need of getting birth certificates for her children so they can enroll in a new school. This family has been homeless, and by staying at many different homes, she has lost a lot of important information. We have been helping her get her ID, SSN, and now birth certificates for her and her children. This transition for the kids has been tough and she believes them switching schools to where they are now will help them become more stable. This process is all part of her getting a job, housing, etc. We are wrapping around this mom to support her in this process!

Hello CarePortal Community! We have a family in our community who needs our support. A family of 4, including an 11-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy, has reached out to our school seeking financial assistance. For about 2 months, the family has been out of power and have been creative in getting hot water and access to WIFI from close relatives. In late August, the family had a car accident, and have not been able to get it fixed- this has made it difficult for Mom to seek new employment and take the youngest daughter to a podiatrist specialist once a month. Since August, Mom has been unemployed, seeking support from family and friends; they are now at a place where they feel they have exhausted all of their resources. They are asking the community for any assistance with utility bills. Would anyone be willing to support this family? Thank you for your time

A family has recently moved into a new home after one of the children's father was killed. The family is still grieving, and losing a source of income has forced the mom to look for other employment. She has a job opportunity that would help but does not have reliable transportation at this time to get to work. She has a bus pass, but not all work sites are on the bus line, so she is requesting an adult bike that she could use to get to and from work. Since they moved, the family is also seeking furniture for their home at this time. They are in need of dressers and a dining room table with chairs. Anything is helpful (however the bike is a priority so the mom can take the new job opportunity and earn more money for her family). I am not sure how much bike/furniture would cost so the amounts below are a rough estimate.

This family has multiple people in the household as they came together to take care of these 5 children who came into care. These 5 children's grandmother, lives with her mother and father and her other daughter who has two kids. We all joined together to make this placement work, so these children did not have to be separated. The grandmother does a lot for these children multiple doctor appointments and taking care of an infant with medical needs. The children are 10,7,4,2 and 4 months old. This family is in desperate need of a dryer if we could find one as their dryer quit working and going to the laundry mat is very expensive. They also need some help with a highchair big enough for the 2-year-old as he does need it. If they could get this help it would benefit the placement and the children.

I have a family who has been working to better their lives through Christ and hard work. A married couple have both obtained employment that require to pay $30.00 a week for transport. The family will need $60.00 today in order to pay for their transportation to and from work next week. This is a very proactive family that is new to the area and has already obtained housing, community support, worship, and employment. They just need help until they get that first paycheck. I love this family and so would you.
