Help Preserve a Foster Care Placement
Normal Request
Hello, I have a long time foster family that has had an outbreak of bed bugs before and they seem to be reappearing again. This family has been working with MCD for years and has adopted many of our children. They are a tremendous blessing to us when it comes to placement of kids. This week the school reported two of the children showing up to school with them on their backpacks. The placement has been trying home remedies and so much more and has priced some local exterminators to hopefully get the funds up for it. But she is afraid by the time they can afford It which wouldn’t be until tax time and we believe the outbreak would be terrible. Money is tight and there are 7+ people living in this home which are the younger children she has adopted from MCD and a child currently in custody. As of now MCD cannot lose this placement as she is the only person left on this child’s family that qualifies to have her in their home. Is there anything or anyone able to help with the cost. Valor pest control is familiar with the home and the spots they mainly populate. The contact for Jason is(###) ###-####. They had priced it at $1000 but maybe someone knows of another place that is able to heat treat the home?
