Help Improve a Child's Well-being
1
Normal Request
The department recently gained Permanent Managing Conservatorship of a child. She is 15 and usually a happy child, but the reality of being in care is being to weigh on this child. She is having a horrible time understanding why she is not able to go home to her family. To help boost her confidence, her placement and I are working together to take her on outings and most of all, keep our word when we tell her we are going to take her somewhere, we are following through. I am able to take her out to eat or shopping occasionally, but the placement is staffed facility without an outing budget. A staff member would like to take her on weekly outings as reward for good behavior and to show her that she has people in her corner. Any denomination gift cards to places like Raising Canes, Wal-Mart, McDonald's, and other places teenagers eat and shop would be greatly appreciated so she get out of the facility and have a normal teenage life.

Help Strengthen a Bio Family

Normal Request
A bio mom recently gained her children back into her care. She is working hard to care for the children's basic needs. Recently, the walls in her home and her couch were destroyed by mold. She is unable to afford to purchase a couch for her home. She is very humble and appreciative of any and all help received. Also, she is struggling to afford a Christmas Tree and decorations. She is not picky, and just wants to have decorations so her children will be able to get their presents from under the tree on Christmas day.

Help Preserve a Kinship Placement

Normal Request
A couple in the area have taken in their 6 great great nieces and nephews. The family is in the process of apply for assistance programs that are available, but without immediate financial support, and taking in 6 children, they have fallen behind on their utility bills. They could use financial assistance to help pay their gas bill and their electric bill. They are currently in need of $410.00 to help with their electric bill and $50 to help with their gas bill. Account information can be provided to pay straight to the utility companies. This financial support will help ease some of the financial stress of this kinship placement.

Help Reunify a Bio Family

Normal Request
I am supporting a family reunification. The family have started weekly visits and the next step is for the children to move back into the home. Currently, the children sleep on air mattresses when they visit. Mom has purchased bunk beds, but she is in need of twin mattresses for their beds. She has obtained full-time employment and has done the work to be where she is. Her goal is that when the children return home, their room will feel like their home, and they will be comfortable in their space.

Kinship home has taken on 5 children. Prior to this, there were no other children in the home. Currently one twin mattress accommodates 5 children. Bunk beds would provide normalcy and a feeling of permanency for the children. Not having a bed to sleep in could make a child to feel as though their placement is temporary and not invested in their wellbeing. A bed could the child to feel more confidant about a placement and promote a feeling of worth knowing their placement is invested.

Normal Request
The kinship caregiver has requested a dresser for her biological niece that has been placed in her care. The dresser will allow her niece to have a place to put her clothes. The dresser will be an example of normalcy and stability. The dresser will help the child to understand the placement is stable and long term. The child has been involved in cheerleading and dancing. The placement is unable to provide the monthly cost. Again, being able to be involved in these normal activities will allow the child to experience what she has in the past as well as what her peers are able to experience. The lessons can prove to be therapeutic for the child. She is currently in therapy. The lessons and normalcy could go a long way towards her therapy.
