Request Details

Help Improve a Child's Well-being
Normal Request
A caregiver has taken in the two sons of his go daughter. The boys have been placed with him for a few months and he is working in becoming an approved kinship foster home in order to get more supports for the boys and himself in caring for the boys. Both of the boys have been struggling emotionally in the absence of their mother. The caregiver is working on getting them into counseling as well as extra curricular activities to help give the boys healthy outlets and coping mechanisms. The caregiver is working on getting both the boys registered for track, but finances are tight right now until the foster care maintenance payments begin. The cost of the track registration and uniforms is $200 for each child. Any help with these fees is greatly appreciated and will help give the boys a healthy outlet and promote some normalcy for them.
