Help Improve a Child's Well-being
5
Normal Request
I work with a family of 2 adults with 1 male and 2 female children who live well below the poverty line. There are concerns for head lice, roach, and flea infections which we are finding difficult to combat without chemicals. The children are currently sharing a king size bed on the floor. Although this is functional at their age, they would benefit from individual beds, sheets, pillows. (Cleaning Supplies) The family would benefit from a case of RID lice spray and a case of Roach/Flea bombs for the home. The dryer is not working. The family would benefit from a working dryer so they can dry cloth items on high to kill lice eggs on the fabric to combat the infestation.
Location: Saint Joseph, MO 64504 - County: Buchanan - Children Served: 3 - Adults Served: 2 - Agency: #MO- DSS - Tier 1: Physical Needs - Estimated Value: $1760
