We have a young adult who has recently aged out of the system and is doing most everything independently. There have been many items needed for her new apartment but most important, receiving a vacuum cleaner to maintain her living space. This would be incredibly helpful to relieve some of the stress of acquiring all the items/funding she is having to work through.

The family is in desperate need of a new full-size mattress. After multiple flooding incidents due to faulty piping in their previous apartment, their full-size mattress was ruined which two of their children used. The family was subsequently rushed out of the apartment and while they were able to find a new apartment, they do not have the financial means to purchase a new mattress at this time. The family has five wonderful children between the ages of 2 and 10 and both parents in the home work full-time schedules just to make ends meet and provide for the basic needs of their children. One of the younger children is also in need of a bigger car seat. The family is not one to ask for help, but they have found themselves in a position where help is simply needed.

Hello- I am requesting help to provide some basic necessities for a family of 2, a single mother of a 16 year old female who recently came to Colorado from Peru to escape the violence. They are needing items such as shampoo, body wash, laundry detergent, feminine hygiene products (tampons/pads), and any other personal hygiene products. This little request will substantially help this family as they are trying to establish their residency in Colorado. The 16 year old is very smart, loves math and wants to be an architect when she grows up. Daughter and mom enjoy watching shows together on their phones and taking walks. Gift cards to grocery stores and Target would also be highly effective in helping this family get on their feet. Mom travels by bus, 50+ minutes to her employment. Bus passes or financial assistance to contribute to transportation also helpful.
