Help Preserve a Kinship Placement
High Urgency Request
This kin-like provider has taken in 2 children with whom this Department works and she has also taken in her younger sister as her parents aren't available for her. This provider works but also has other duties related to helping the children. Kin provider takes the children to therapy every week and drives them to school and picks them up as the distance is too far for the children to walk. While this provider is trying to meet all the children's needs, other financial problems have come up for her, such as: provider's car is not working and she was faced with the choice of paying to fix her car or paying rent. The provider also reported that she's also having difficulty paying for other things including hygiene and laundry products, gas, etc. This provider is single and very responsible. The provider recently applied for a job, which is near her home. She is able to walk to this job, but she's waiting to see if she got the job. The provider currently works in Pueblo, as that's where she was working before she got the children. The children love being with this provider and think of her as their parent, and they want to remain with her. It is hoped that if she gets the $500 gift cards, she can use them to fix her car, pay bills, and get the appropriate items the family needs.
