Help Preserve a Kinship Placement
High Urgency Request
Placement is the 65 year old great grandmother of four kids under the age of 5, three of which reside with her in a relative placement and one that is being moved to her care but is not there full time yet. She also provides full time care for an elderly friend with high medical needs. The family was receiving money during the 90 day licensing process but something happened and the licensing worker dropped the ball. The last check she received was for $28 and that was for diapers for the 1 year old. She is set to start receiving maintenance checks again on the 15th of November. The family is in danger of losing their home because the landlord is threatening to evict over charges accrued without her knowledge. The property management changed offices and she was not informed of the new mailing address. Despite being able to pay the past rent and the rent for the next two months, the landlord has given them a three day notice to get the money to pay the fees or they will change the locks and she and everyone else in her care will be homeless with no relatives able to accommodate all five of them under their roof. We are trying to preserve placement so that the siblings can remain in the home with family and not be split up. One of the children has developmental needs and fares better without change and there are no funds to put the ailing adult into a home outside of the one she resides in.
