Normal Request
The family has a 13 year old boy. Mom's boyfriend who was residing in the home was arrested due to a severe domestic violence altercation which the child was involved and injured in. The boyfriend was the provider in the family and mom now has no way to pay rent and needs help with groceries. Mom was recently laid off from her job and will be picking up her last check next week which will help with their $1000 rent but not cover it. I am looking for grocery gift cards for the family as well as any amount of money to help offset the rent. Mom does not want boyfriend back in the home and has kicked him out, and is looking for a new job. Anything helps!

Family renting a home from an inattentive landlord. parents are kind and very hard working. their heat has gone out and the landlord has not been out to fix it yet. we are trying to help them with this through other means but in the meantime the family could really use some extra space heaters and some heavy blankets and comforters. They have one small space heater in the kids’ room but it isn’t really that affective. the one in mom and dads room works ‘ok’ but there are other areas in the home that could really use a heater or two. the entire house is really drafty which isn’t helping the situation.

Critical Request
The two children were recently reunited with their father and are on a Trial Home Visit. Due to a previous court order, the father had to reside away from his wife and children for the past two months and provide income for two households. One of the children has extreme behaviors and has been in and out of acute hospital stays. Father has had to miss work due to these hospital stays which has affected the household income. Father and his wife are now having marital concerns and father is looking for alternate housing. The stress of the child and his behaviors is part of the reason for this separation. Father is in need of childcare assistance. The children attend an after-school program in Decatur Township in Indianapolis. Father does not qualify for DCS assistance since he is a biological parent and not a placement. Father needs this service to continue the process of reunification. We are asking for childcare to be paid to get us to the end of the case and allow for the child to get his evaluation and treatment to enable father to work more consistent hours. Child care weekly is 85.00 per child each week.

Deirdre: Hello, I am looking into seeing if our church can partially assist with this. In the meantime, I just wanted to check and see if Father has looked into CCDF vouchers to help pay ofr aftercare. Based on his income he may qualify if the aftercare accepts CCDF vouchers.

The child was placed with her step-mother. Step-mother has health issues but is doing wonderful things for the child. The step-mother helps the child with home schooling and sees that the child's needs are met. This is a hard time for anyone right after Christmas, but the families refrigerator quit working and the family lost a lot of food. The child is doing well in the home with the step-mother and the family is participating in services. The child is a wonderful young lady who was removed from a bad situation with biological mother. Step-mother would be unable to remove the non working refrigerator. It does not matter if the refrigerator is new or used as long as it works. Updated on January 19, 2023 by an Agency Worker

Melissa: I have a queen size mattress that was purchased from Amazon and did not expand all the way. They replaced it but did not want the original one back. My son slept on it once and despite it not fully expanding he said it was comfortable. Only slept on the one time with an allergen cover on it. I am happy to give it to them if they would like it.
