I have a current placement that is in need of a washing machine. Her washing machine is broken and she is on a fixed income. She shares a house with her daughter and two other young grandchildren. She is now that primary caregiver for her 10 year old grandson, as well. I believe that it would help them tremendously to have a place at home to wash clothes.They do have a functioning dryer.

This family has been working with the Department for a year now and the children have all been returned to their mother and the Department is still monitoring. The children are 4, 5, 7 and 9 years old and are out growing their clothing. Their mother works a full time job to provide for the children, though is struggling with being able to get the children new clothes for school. This family could greatly benefit from a gift card from Walmart or a similar store so that clothing could be bought for these children.

A relative caretaker has stepped up and done an excellent job caring for the boys who are so happy there and excited about the stability and simple family things, like scheduled dinners and remaining at the same school district. Caregiver has experienced financial struggles due to COVID. Boys (13 and 5) need a bunk bed to maintain placement and caregiver cannot afford the bed in addition to other expenses.

We are requesting a desktop computer. This child is 14 years old and is autistic. The child enjoys watching movies and mimics certain scenes over and over and over. The caregivers have learned that a desktop computer could be good for him because it will not die on him like the tablets do.

This young sweet loving family are in need of a couch and a toddler bed. They are currently not financially capable of buying these things but are doing the absolute best they can with their new life changes. The family only has the one bed in their apartment that they all sleep in at night. Providing them with a toddler bed will allow the toddler a safe place to sleep and give the parents some time alone. The family has also had some separation from their support system since they do not have a place for family or friends to come by, sit and socialize. Having a couch will allow them to rebuild their support system and ensure the family has people in place if they were to need something in the future.

My case involves a, newly, single mother who has fought to find a decent paying job during a pandemic. She was always a stay at home mother until circumstances changed in her life. She has five children she is stepping up for and trying her best to keep her children in a stable environment. She is currently in need of gas cards. This is a very important need because it will ensure she has the gas to drive home and back to work. She is trying to catch up on past due balances and it is causing her to be short each week. This situation is leaving her to make a choice of being home with her children or staying with a coworker who lives closer to her place of employment. Mom travels 45 minutes a day to work. The job is offering her the opportunity to move up and it is a place that she can see herself grow at. She does not want to leave her position for a closer job right now.

I have a family where one of the biological parents has a severe mental health issue. They are currently getting treatment with a partial hospitalization program, however it will be ending as on the 23rd of September. The doctors are recommending this client go on to the intensive outpatient program, however they do not have the money to do so. They have already paid out of pocket for the partial hospitalization plan which was around $4000 dollars and do not have the rest of the money to get this intensive mental health treatment that they need. Caseworker has spoken with the provider of the partial hospitalization and they stated that clients are most successful when they can do the intensive outpatient plan, however cost is a factor in this situation from what they understand. We are asking for help in covering this cost and the facility has offered a 25% discount if we can get it paid in full. The cost that has been provided for this much needed program is $3037.50
