Single mom left home with infestation and, in an effort, to prevent further infestation lost all of her furniture. She is in need of 1 toddler bed and mattress, 2 twin beds and mattresses (age 7 & 9), and 1 full bed and mattress (12 yr old boy the size of an adult). The children are currently sleeping in 1 bed and 1 small makeshift sofa. She has no living room or dining room furniture of any kind. A kitchen table and a sofa would be helpful. The beds are the highest priority to ensure safe sleeping.
Single mother of two small boys is in need of a toddler bed for her two year old who has outgrown his crib. He has medical needs and nurses who come in daily. He will need a bed with rails to help accommodate his medical devices and tubes. A regular toddler bed with rails around most of the bed will work.
There is only one caregiver in the home. She is struggling to provide for her child. Child is female and is 3 months old. The caregiver is working hard to provide a stable and safe environment. The parent is currently struggling to provide diapers and formula and is in need of help. This will allow for proper care of the child.

It is a family of 7 with 5 children (11 years old girl, 10 years old boy, 9 years old girl, and 7-year-old twins, a boy and a girl). All of the children are in needs of beds. The family recently moved apartments and had to throw away all of the furniture away due to a roach infestation. The family did not want to move the insects from one home to the other and they thought the best course of action would be to throw everything away and start over. Anything would be helpful to the family and help ease the burden.
Grandmother is caring for 1 y/o (F), 2 y/o (M), and 9 y/o (F). The 1 y/o is needing a crib, and the 2 y/o is needing a toddler bed for appropriate sleeping arrangements. This would allow for the children to have safe sleeping arrangements. The children are also needing appropriate car seat safety, as they currently do not have any. This will reduce the risk of serious injury and death in the event of a car accident.

The donation of crib mattresses will allow the caregivers to continue to meet the other needs of the babies.

This 6-person family does the best they can on under $50,000 annual income. They are working on moving out of their current apartment which is in bad condition.

They had to throw the beds out and are currently sharing 2 mattresses for all members of the family. They do not want to replace the beds until they move but would like help with some air mattresses to improve the quality of life for their children until they move and can save money for beds.

I have a wonderful sixteen-year-old girl that has been in care for one year. She finally has the opportunity to be placed with a family member instead of in a foster home. She was placed last Friday, and she looked so happy to be there. The family member was ready for her with her own room. However, when she went to get the queen size bed out of storage, it had been destroyed by the elements. The family member is a single person that would have to save up for many months to afford to pay for a new one. Right now, the sixteen-year-old is sleeping in the family member's bed and the family member is sleeping on the couch. This is not a long-term solution. We are requesting a new or used Queen size bed for a growing teenager. Thank you for your help in maintaining this family connection.
The child in care has been returned to their family and is currently on a return to monitor. The mother is a single woman with 6 children in her home.

The mother is currently on crutches from an injury and needs assist with dryer repairs or a new or gently used dryer. This family would benefit from having a dryer in the home so the mother can focus on healing and on the children.

I have a single father who is caring for his 11 year old daughter. The daughter is disabled and was recently discharged from the hospital. The father and child were kicked out of their home and are currently living in a hotel. The father is behind on his hotel bill and owes $225. If he doesn't catch up on his bill they will be kicked out of the hotel and become homeless. His daughter is also required to drink Pediasure everyday due to failure to thrive but they ran out and the father doesn't have enough funds to purchase anymore. If she doesn't get the nutrition needed she can lose weight, which will place her back in the hospital. I am also requesting $60 to purchase two boxes of Pediasure that will last her a month. The daughter was recently approved for disability and the father will have additional income to care for her once payment begins.
