Help Prevent a Child From Entering Foster Care
5
Normal Request
Family of 5 (dad and 4 kids) need help paying rent. The children were in foster care for 2 years while father worked services and obtained housing and employment. Father obtained an apartment at the end of April, with his first full month in the apartments being May. The children were returned to him this month in stages. 2 children were returned to him the first week, one the second week, and the last child returned the third week of June. Father has had difficulty with the food stamp office and also lost his job shortly after the first 2 kids were returned to him. The department is working on assisting with daycare but there was a hiccup and it is taking longer than expected to get it set up. Father has stated that he has been using the rent money to buy food instead of using it for rent, and so now he is short on the rent money. If the family does not obtain all of the rent money they will lose the apartment and the children will have to come back into foster care.
