Aunt recently took placement of her two nieces, ages 1 & 5. Caregiver is younger and does not have any children of her own, therefore she is starting from scratch and does not have anything child related. DCF was able to provide a pack and play for temporary sleeping purposes for the infant, however the caregiver is in need of a crib that transforms into a toddler bed, mattress and sheet set. The youngest will be 2 mid Oct. She is also in need of clothing for both girls, sizes 24 months & 5T. This request is an effort to support this caregiver and show her the community is here to help preserve her family. Updated on September 12, 2021 by an Agency Worker

Two caregiver household with 3 bio children (age ranges 11-17) that has taken in 4 relative children (age ranges 10-13). The caregivers are not receiving any financial assistance from the state right now as there is a waiting period for the paperwork to go through. Once the funds are received they will be used for general needs such as clothing and groceries.

Single mother of one has taken in her cousin's two young children, ages 1 and 5, making her a single caregiver of 3. The caregiver is a hairstylist and due to COVID has had a decrease in clients. The family is in need of a crib, crib mattress and bedding for the 1 year old female. The infant is currently sleeping in a pack and play and a crib would provide the infant with a more permanent sleeping arrangement.

Two young girls, ages 5 and 3 are now in their grandmother's care. Even though the grandmother is employed, she had to take time off of work and used all of her PTO time. Then she had to get her granddaughters settled and enrolled in daycare and school. She also had to use her savings for doctor's appointments, and other essentials, Now, her central air conditioning system in her home does not work and the home is not comfortable. She had a repairman look at it, but he said it was old, and she needed to have a new one. The grandmother was able to get one small window unit for the family room, but this does not cool the other parts of the home.

Marion: Jonathan Bolden runs an A/c company here at Destination Church. His number is 904-483-7869. She could give him a call and get a second opinion and maybe he could give her a break on the cost.

Marion: Ethel, I called your number but I could leave a voice mail. Please give me a call so I can give you the information I found out from Jonathan at Air McCall. Thank you, Marion

Marion: I received an update today from Jonathan the owner on the AC service appointment: When we spoke (9/8), I talked to Velma and then had one of our dispatchers call her to schedule a visit, she told us she had Covid... so we had to wait and reschedule. We have her scheduled for a technician visit for tomorrow afternoon.
