Help Preserve a Kinship Placement
Normal Request
This request is to help preserve a kinship placement for three male siblings, twins age 13 and their brother age 12. This summer these children needed to quickly leave their parents home and the investigating child protective caseworker found their 30 year old half sister was willing to take them in. Because the adult sister was living in a one bedroom apartment at the time the children have been sleeping on an air mattress on her living room floor. After two months of searching their sister was able to find a bigger apartment and they all moved into it on September 24, 2022. The boys now have a bedroom to share and they are all happy to have more space. However the children are still sleeping on an air mattress and they would greatly benefit if they could sleep on a bed. Due to the size of the bedroom the children share they are looking for a bunk bed and a twin bed. A dresser and a computer desk would also be beneficial but the beds are the main focus. The children have been very well behaved throughout their ordeal and appreciative of all their sister is doing for them and this would help her a lot to maintain the children in her home.
Location: Troy, NY 12180 - County: Rensselaer - Children Served: 3 - Adults Served: 1 - Agency: #Rensselaer County Department of Social Services - Tier 1: Physical Needs - Estimated Value: $1225
