Hello, I have a non paid kinship placement. Foster mom is asking for help with some groceries. If we can get her a gift card to a grocery store that would help her a lot. She has taken in two pre teen children that are not related to her but needed a home so she opened her home to them and they are doing great. She also has an adult child living with her which is the sibling to one of the children she took in. Not getting payment yet is just putting a strain on her and this would help a lot. She applied for food stamps for the extra help and was denied. Any help would be appreciate. Thank you.
