Request Details

Help Prevent a Child From Entering Foster Care
Normal Request
Mom of bubbly, active 2-year-old suffers a rare and fatal genetic disorder that results in sporadic paralysis of both arms. She has tried repeatedly to work, but has had to leave each job as her disorder flares up. She's currently unable to work and seeking disability. The local Dept. of Social Services has an active case open for the family based on needed home repairs and trash removal. Husband works full-time and has limited ability to work on home repairs. The family's truck is inoperable and they cannot haul off trash. Their lawnmower is also broken. Mom's primary hope is that a volunteer crew can help them with minor home repairs, cleaning the yard, and cutting the grass in advance of the upcoming DSS home visit. She is extremely concerned that her daughter may be removed from the home given its current condition. A devoted, loving and attentive mom, she's also seeking friendships and overall social capital as she reports her family is not supportive.
