Request Details

Help Preserve a Kinship Placement
High Urgency Request
Roanoke City DSS had 4 siblings in foster care who were placed with a kinship provider in December 2022. This kinship provider is actually only related to two of the children, but she understood the need for siblings to be together so she petitioned for custody of all four children. She and her husband both work and have two children of their own. This means the addition of the 4 siblings doubled their family size, and meant their two bedroom home was no longer enough space. They made arrangements for a new home with enough space for all the children; however, it is in need of several repairs, the costs of which have really added up. There are needs that range from railings on stairs to roofing issues. The total cost has been estimated to be $8,000 for materials and $4,000 for labor. This provider has shared her story at a monthly meeting.
Location: Roanoke, VA 24017 - County: Roanoke City - Children Served: 4 - Adults Served: 2 - Agency: #VA-Roanoke City DSS - Tier 1: Physical Needs - Estimated Value: $12000
