A grandmother is caring for her grandson, and he is residing with her as a kinship placement. She is working hard to keep him out of foster care. He is in need of a new winter coat and clothes, including shirts, pants, socks, and underwear. He is a size 8. Her grandson is also educationally behind, so any educational toys or books for him would also be very helpful! The family is also in need of a vacuum cleaner.

Normal Request
A young, single mother with three children is in need of some household items. The mother has recently acquired her own housing and is finally able to move out of her mother’s house, where the family of four were all living in a single bedroom. The mother hasn’t been on her own in a while and is preparing to make the leap of independence. Her children are a seven-year-old boy, and three-year-old boy/girl twins. The mother will be living in a three-bedroom house and plans to have her two boys share a room and the girl to have her own space. The mother already had a bunk bed frame donated to her for the boy’s room. But the mother is still in need of a bed frame for her three-year-old daughter. The mother is also in need of mattresses for all three of her children as well as sheets/bedding. The mother also requests a couch as the one she does have isn’t in the best of condition as it is several years old and has been well loved already.

Normal Request
A 45-year-old maternal grandmother is the caregiver for her two grandchildren. The caregiver identified that she needs a double stroller for her two grandchildren. The grandmother is employed full time; however, she has monthly expenses that exceed her take home salary. The children's ages are toddler boy aged 3, and infant girl 4 months. The family would benefit from having a double stroller so the grandmother could travel comfortably with the two small children. If this need is met the grandmother would be able to take both of the children to appointments, shopping and neighborhood walks. Updated on January 26, 2023 by an Agency Worker

A five-month-old boy was placed with a family that is fictive kin. The baby was physically abused at six weeks old along with his twin sister. The two are in separate homes due to their extensive health needs. He was placed in the care of the fictive kin couple just before Christmas. While both caregivers are employed, they are adjusting to a new baby in the home and have had to take time off of work to learn his health plan and to attend appointments at John Hopkins. They have requested assistance with a few items such as formula (Alimentum), diapers size 3/4, and a gas card for doctors/hospital visits.

I have a grandmother that recently obtained guardianship of her grandson. She has just moved into a new home and needs assistance with two dressers for her and her grandson. They are storing all their belongings currently in totes. She is also asking for kitchen table and chairs. This will help the child feel that he has a permanent home and will no longer be moving from place to place.
