She recently lost all of her furniture and most of her belongings due to a pipe bursting in her apartment causing major water damage in her apartment.

Normal Request
Caregiver is a single mother of 3 young girls all under the age of 5. She has been a victim of domestic violence and she has no biological family in the state of Texas. She managed to develop a good relationship with the paternal grandmother of one of her children and that is her only support system. The Department assists her with providing daycare and she was recently approved for housing. She was in an apartment and unfortunately had to leave the apartment with her 3 young children unexpectedly 3 days before Christmas due to pipes bursting from freezing temperatures. The caregiver lost all of her beds and furniture as a result of this water damage to her apartment. She has struggled to get into a new apartment and is in the process of trying to rebuild. She does not currently have any furniture aside from 2 air mattresses and a pack and play. The mother is working from home and trying to save up to replace what was lost from the water damage, but she is struggling to get back on her feet. The assistance of the beds and a couch for her children would take off some of the stress until she is able to fully get back on her feet.

A single mom of 3 (ages 9,9,8) is desperately trying to get back on her feet after having left an abusive situation. They have recently been placed in housing. Due to length of homelessness, they have nothing in the home. This is the children's first time in school. This includes, beds, dressers, bedding, couches, coffee table, any kids' bedroom décor, kitchen table, food, clothing, tablets for the kids for school. She is currently unemployed due to the mental health of her children and the trauma they endured. The dad was previously the one supporting the family, he is currently in jail. The family does not have transportation. They do not access to food stamps as they are in the dad's name. Mom is working very hard to provide a safe and stable home environment to maintain stability for the children.

Critical Request
Hi I just received a call from this single mom who has been staying in motels because her sister got a boyfriend and her and her kids had to leave their shared apartment unexpectedly. She originally came from West Texas to get away from a domestic violent situation and moved in with her sister. She is waitressing and doesn't have a car. She ran out of money today and her kids get off the bus at 3:50. She needs money for her motel room for a couple more days until she can get into a shelter. Her plan is to go to the police and have them find a shelter that will take her but I wanted to see if her room could be kept through the weekend. The cost of the motel room is $65 per night. Requesting $195. It would be very helpful to get her through this weekend until further help can be found on Monday for housing. Updated on January 31, 2023 by an Agency Worker
she and the kids have managed to stay in the motel but no more money and check out is 11am today. Kids are out of school and food might be an issue as well. any amount would be appreciated towards keeping these kids safe and fed. thank you Updated on January 31, 2023 by an Agency Worker
Client and I are actively working to find long term solution including other family in the US that can take her and the kids in to house. We are also reaching out to find transitional housing. Just needs to keep her and the kids warm in the motel temporarily until further long term care can be established. Thank you for your consideration in contributing to this matter.
