A family of 7 had a house fire this week and has no where to stay. We would like to put them in a hotel and help get them back on their feet. There are 2 kids 5 and under and 3 pre-teens. Any donations or help for this family would be greatly appreciated!
This is a single parent home. Foster parent took in her great granddaughter and has been doing well until recently. Foster mom thought she was getting assistance with her rent however when the apartment went under new ownership the new managers were not able to find the paperwork and say that there was never any payments made. Foster parent needs $475.00 today to cover part of the rent that she is behind on. She owes a total of $3000.00 to the complex. Foster parent stated if she does not have the $475 by 5pm on 2/3/23 she will be locked out of her apartment and lose all of her things. The child has no where else to go nor does foster parent. Meeting this need will help the family remain in a home they are use to. Foster mom recently lost her daughter and is currently caring for her grandson as well.

Has this been to court? Did she not get copies of the paperwork needed? Have you looked at the renters rights? Have you spoken with the apartments to confirm all of this or plead with them? They cant just look the doors without a court order.

A mother in Yukon is needing assistance with Rent. In the home is a single mother and her son. The mother recently lost her job and is currently looking for a job. She is currently behind on her February rent. This mother could use help with rental assistance as the apartment gave her until the 15th to settle the balance. Anything would help even if its just a small portion of it. Thank you so much for your help!
1 infant newborn is in need of a crib mattress and a 1 year old child is needing a bedframe and mattress. As of now, they are sleeping with the parents in a full bed. Having the newborn sleep with the parents is not best practice for safe sleep. The crib mattress will allow the newborn and parents to sleep peacefully at night. The toddler bed would be for the one year old and provide more comfort for the family. The family is struggling financially to pay their bills and buy groceries at this time and can't spare any money for proper beds for the kids.

I have the honor of working with a family recently reunified and doing well trying to get their lives on track as a family unit. Unfortunately, the mother is having some difficulties financially while getting used to having all of her children back in her care. The mother recently shared while she has been able to pay most of her bills, she is lacking the funds to pay her electric bill. We are asking for a hand up in helping this mother in ensuring the family can maintain electricity in this time of need. Your time, consideration, and help are most appreciated!

A family of 4 in the El Reno area is needing help. In the home is a single dad and 3 children. The family is low income. The father's mother attempts to help them as much as she can such as buying furniture from garage sales. Unfortunately, some of the furniture the grandmother purchased had bed bugs. The mattresses are now ruined by bed bugs and he has tried everything to get rid of them such as wrapping the mattresses in plastic and spraying them with bed bug killer; this has not helped. Due to the financial stresses on this single father, he has not been able to afford new mattresses. They would need 3 twin mattresses and 1 queen mattress. Thank you so much for your help and consideration in this matter.

We have a 16 year old female who just entered one of our foster homes. She loves music and thoroughly enjoys playing the violin. When she initially entered care, she had a violin. However, with many shelter and group home placements, her violin and other belonging were lost. This child has experienced things no child should, and we are hopeful to provide her with something that has brought her much joy.

I would love to purchase this for her. I am a violinist too for over 20 years and would like to let her know that she can do anything she sets her mind to! I would also like to purchase a couple of music books for her, a tuner and a metranome and shoulder rest. Let me know what level she is and I can do that. Can't wait to hear about this rising star!
I am assisting a single mother who has recently entered trial reunification with her 23 month old son. Her son sustained a brachial plexus injury during childbirth that resulted in significant loss of movement in his right arm. He has had multiple surgeries, physical therapy, and other doctor's appointments. Mother needed to fly out to Philadelphia for another surgery in January 2023. Mom is home with her son while he recovers from surgery in a cast that attached to his chest. With all these doctor's appointments and health challenges, Mother has found it hard to find time to work consistently on her own business. She has lost some clients and she has not been able to work as much as she would like. She has been committed to being there for her son, and she doing a great job with him!
However, mother has not been able to address her growing utility bills and other needs while caring for her son. Mother needs help paying her utilities in order to remain in trial reunification with her son. She is trying to get help for future expenses and budgeting, but she needs immediate help to provide a safe home for her and her son. I am asking for any help with the following utility bills. I will be happy to share more information upon acceptance of the request. Any help would be appreciated!

The parents of 3 adopted children, with a total of 7 children in the home. Three of the children have all been diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
The family needs assistance covering their Caregiver Success online training course. The payment options are a one-time cost of $997; or Installment plan: (6) month payment plan with a down payment of $199 and $199 x 5.
The class that we enrolled in is called Caregiver Success. I found it on an FASD podcast. He is a leader in the FASD world. His website is FASDSUCCESS.com. There is a small window for the enrollment into the class and enrollment is currently closed. So, I don’t have a brochure. It is a self-paced class that you do on an app called Kajabi. There are 2 live coaching calls every week where you can get on zoom, ask questions to other parents and the FASD coaches provide support. I am attaching the receipts in the email. We elected to do the monthly installments instead of the lump sum. We have paid for 3/6 of them so far and will pay again in February, March, and April.
We have a Grandmother and Grandfather fostering their three grandchildren at this time. Grandpa was recently laid off from his job and the children came into custody just before. The family has worked diligently to get home approved and will start receiving their stipend next month. The family recently had their washer and dryer break. We were able to find a dryer for the family but they are still in need of a washer (new or used). The family could use some other assistance with uniforms as all of their savings have gone into the needs for the children. If you can help this family with a washer or uniforms for the two younger children, please reach out!

I have an adult mom of four and grandmother who recently found a house after being homeless for months. She had to leave a bad situation where she and her children were not safe. They unfortunately were not able to take a lot with them. Mom works over nights and grandmother help her take care of the children. This household only has one income coming in and mom was able to get all her utilities turned on and the house payment paid however that does not leave a lot to buy furniture and appliances. The rental house did not come with a stove or a fridge. This household most important needs is to get a fridge and stove so they will be able to eat at the house and the children can have healthy meals. She could also use help in getting other household items such as beds, couch and a table. By helping this family it would ease the stress and worry and allow the mom to be able to provide a healthier environment for her family. Updated on February 02, 2023 by an Agency Worker Client was able to get a fridge.

I am working with a mother and father that have three young children in custody and in out of home care. The parents do not have transportation and their support system is limited. One of the children is in a medical facility receiving treatment for a life long diagnosis. The request is for two 30-day bus passes. The passes will help the parents visit the child on a more frequent basis, attend a training course on the child's care that is required by the hospital, and it would help them attend other parent services.

Mother of one 7 year-year old child is in need of financial assistance to pay the household gas bill of $537.93. Mother is currently between employment opportunities and is actively engaging in employment interviews. Helping this mother will allow for her to focus her limited funds on other household bills and mortgage payments without the fear of a much-needed utility service being disconnected until she is able to find stable employment.
A grandmother took in her grandson when he was a new born, he is now getting ready to start crawling. This means he will be able to be all over the house and get into things that he shouldn't. The family is in need of baby gates to help prevent him from getting harmed by things he shouldn't be able to get into. If you have any baby gates you are getting rid of, or would like to purchase the family new ones. Please let me know and I will get you in contact with the family! Thank you!

A mother who has recently become single has three older children and recently had a new baby. This mother has left a physically dangerous situation and is trying to maintain a home for her children. The mother is gathering resources and looking for a job to secure herself financially.

We have a child with cerebral palsy who needs a wheelchair for school. His wheelchair will not fit on the school van, so they have to take it apart twice a day for transporting. He has had his current chair for several years. Taking the chair apart twice a day is messing up the frame. Mom can carry him from the house onto the van even though he is almost as big as her now, but he needs a wheelchair at the school. This would help him attend school more regularly. His Mom would be thrilled with a new or used chair. The cost below is for a new chair.
