DCCCA's Family Preservation is currently helping 3 young women integrate into their new home after the loss of their father. Their mother is making many improvements on their home and is working hard to meet their needs, but her plate is filling up quickly, and their medical appointments are taking up much of the family's current income. On top of that, mom has gotten 3 months behind on her credit card payments, which is adding additional stress to the family during this time of grieving their loss. We would like to be able to take care of the past due payments to bring some relief to mom so she can concentrate on her daughters' and her own mental and emotional wellness.

I have a case in which a dad and a 7 year old girl was staying with dad's girlfriend. The girlfriend smacked the little girl on the arm when the child was upset in an attempt to make her quit crying before she got to daycare. This left a mark and a bruise. The dad and daughter have been staying at Motel 6, but dad ran out of money and spent his last night at the motel last night that he funded himself. The YWCA is trying to make arrangements that are more permanent for this family, however, some of the charities are not open today. It is at the request of the YWCA that the father/daughter be able to continue staying at a motel for the weekend so that on Monday more resources will be available.
