High Urgency Request
Employed parent had just purchased a vehicle and it was stolen. Parent is now in need of assistance purchasing an electric scooter. Parent only has enough for rent, food, essentials, and bills since parent's savings went to the vehicle that was stolen and still hasn't been located. Providing financial assistance to purchase the electric scoter would make it easier for parent to get from one bus stop to another to her court ordered services weekly, without making parent late to work and having the chance to get fired. With parent complying with case plan, this will move parent's case closer to reunification with children.

High Urgency Request
One of my most beloved clients, a beautiful, vibrant, brilliant young foster youth, aged 20, passed away on January 17th. Her sister, who is also a former foster youth, is in charge of planning the funeral services - and is truly struggling for funds. Her sister is an incredible young woman, who has helped raise her own siblings. Her sister is getting some assistance from DCFS, and have set up a gofundme - but they are still not able to afford the burial and service. Any assistance would be appreciated. If you are even willing to circulate the gofundme, that would also help.

Two parents have turned the garage into a living space in the back of Grandpa's home. They do have two space heaters already but they need at least two more to actually feel some heat. They have one huge one facing the kids beds and one tiny one facing theirs. Children are allowed to go in the home but to make it more comfortable they said they would be open to one or two more space heaters. Help with the weather conditions going on outside and feel more comfortable in their temporary living space. They can take the heaters to the shed they will be getting soon.

She recently lost all of her furniture and most of her belongings due to a pipe bursting in her apartment causing major water damage in her apartment. Caregiver had to relocate as a result of the damage, and she recently found a new apartment. She utilized all of her resources to move into the new apartment and she does not have the financial resources to purchase new beds and bedding at this time. The children are home on a monitored return and are doing well.

Caregiver is a single mother of 3 young girls all under the age of 5. She has been a victim of domestic violence and she has no biological family in the state of Texas. She managed to develop a good relationship with the paternal grandmother of one of her children and that is her only support system. The Department assists her with providing daycare and she was recently approved for housing. She was in an apartment and unfortunately had to leave the apartment with her 3 young children unexpectedly 3 days before Christmas due to pipes bursting from freezing temperatures. The caregiver lost all of her beds and furniture as a result of this water damage to her apartment. She has struggled to get into a new apartment and is in the process of trying to rebuild. She does not currently have any furniture aside from 2 air mattresses and a pack and play. The mother is working from home and trying to save up to replace what was lost from the water damage, but she is struggling to get back on her feet. The assistance of the beds and a couch for her children would take off some of the stress until she is able to fully get back on her feet.
