Help Strengthen a Bio Family
5
Normal Request
This young mother came to Safe Families for Children several months ago sick, distraught, and struggling with homelessness and unemployment. Over the months she has worked hard to build a better home and life for both herself and her children (8 years, 2 years, 1.5 years old, and expecting a new baby in a few months). She made great strides with finding employment, strengthening her parenting skills, and now she has finally found a home! She will be moving into a newly renovated home where she and her little ones can have a stable, healthy environment. Unfortunately, the home is not furnished or equipped in anyway. Coming out of homelessness she needs "any and everything." She has come so far! She will need everything from beds and linens, to pots and pans. The house will be ready to move in next week, but without the proper furnishings and supplies she is still at risk. Please help keep this family together.
Location: Lynchburg, VA 24501 - County: Campbell - Children Served: 4 - Adults Served: 1 - Agency: #VA-Vision 30 - Tier 1: Physical Needs - Estimated Value: $1622

Claudia: Would love to be able to get all of these items for this young woman that a family from our church has been walking with since May of 2020. She is strong, resilient, smart, resourceful, and very committed to her children. Let's see if we can get her everything she needs!

Beth: I have heard that the second toddler bed and mattress have been obtained. I am willing to get chairs. Rhae Newbill, could you describe the table, so I can get chairs that go with it? Thanks.

Rhae: Beth, the table is a 5'x3' rectangular table with an extra leaf. It is a wood grain stain with slightly darker color. It does have a burn on one spot. I would say 6 chairs easily.
