This family is trying to set up separate residences for both parents. Father's work schedule is fluid. Mother has a lot of appointments. The parents and babysitter have to share a car seat. Due to the frequency at which the caregivers exchange baby, they could use another car seat. This would cut down on time and effort, which will help decrease stress on caregivers and baby.

A family is seeking a relationship with a local church as well as assistance with bed bugs. There are two children within the home that are under 18 and both are males.

Single mother has had two children removed from her care previously due to mistakes in her past but has a newborn and a chance to right her wrongs. There are no concerns with the safety of the newborn in her care currently and mother has everything she needs for the child. Mom moved into a new apartment which has a bed for her but nothing else. She is requesting help getting the basic furniture with a couch, tv stand, dining room table, and at least two dressers. We are also requesting a gift card for food and gas to help her through until she can get her girl into daycare at 6weeks and go back to work. This is the first time she has had her feet underneath her and is excited to be moving forward. Please help ensure she can do so comfortably with her littlest blessing!

I am currently working with a single mother of six children. The mother herself was in foster care as a child. She has lost her transportation due to the transmission going out on her vehicle, and the only available option is to call her former foster mother whenever she or the kids need a ride somewhere. The kids have access to the school bus but if one or more of them miss the bus on a day then mom has no way to get them to school. The school tries to provide transportation as best they can for the kids. Additionally, for any appointments, etc. the mother has no means for transportation. This request is to see if anyone out there might have a spare vehicle they aren't using that they could donate to this family. If not, then possibly a donation towards buying a car or repairing the old car if that is possible.

This is a single mother taking care of three children. She recently gave birth a few months ago to a boy. The mother works two jobs in hospitality, and she did not receive maternity care due to the industry. The mother stopped receiving child support from the two older children's father, and the other father is not present as such. The mother's son has early kidney disease and has been receiving care in MD as he was born out of state, and therefore she attends services there for the baby. The baby is having surgery this Friday, and the mother has been struggling with being able to work when her child is considered high medical needs. This mother's service providers put in a SSI application, however that won't take place till January of next year. This mother applied for fueling assistance but won't be accepted till the end of December. Her utility bill is 484.31 and she faces disconnection on 11/28/23. I requested that she contact all financial agencies in the area today, but it will take time for her to hear back from these providers. She needs help, she needs support, she needs a prayer and thoughts that everything will be okay with her son. Please consider helping this mother :)

This family consists of a mother, step-father, and 4 year old child. Step-father just started a new job but has not been paid yet. Mother lost her job about a month ago and is still looking for a new one. The child is special needs with some challenging behaviors and is in services, which can make it hard for the family to maintain steady employment when having to take time off for service appointments and such. Mother is currently pregnant with her second child and has some of her own mental health challenges and is under a lot of stress. The family is behind on rent and they need to catch up to prevent possible eviction. This request of one months rent would be greatly appreciated to help the family maintain their housing and reduce some stress so they can focus on maintaining the child's special needs as well.

Roanoke City DSS gained custody of a 16 year old female due to truancy. This has been an ongoing concern for this youth, as she was 100% truant for the 2023-2024 academic year. She is now placed in a therapeutic foster home in Lynchburg and attending school. woohoo!!! The agency has scheduled family visits to occur in Lynchburg, so the youth does not miss school. This is due to her being behind academically. This youth is bonded to her family and the Department would like to ensure that in-person visits can occur. The biological mother is willing to drive to Lynchburg on a bi-weekly basis for family time, but is not able to afford gas. Our agency is asking for either one or multiple churches to meet a need of gas gift cards.
The visit is located 49.7 miles away.
If this need can be met, the gift cards can be dropped off at Roanoke City DSS or provided to the family directly.
I, Shanae Vaughn, am the ongoing worker for this family. Please give me a call at(###) ###-####, so i can assist in this matter.
