Aunt is needing basic necessities met for the children in order to ensure that the children are comfortable in her home. The baby doesn't sleep very much and is up all night.

Mom is a single mother of 5 children ranging from 4 months to 13 years of age. Mom is currently looking for a job but needs to wait for transportation to be in place. Her ex-boyfriend broke her couch as well as other things in the home before leaving with money she had saved for a vehicle.

They are in need of a toddler bed for a 2 year-old boy and a twin bed for an 8 year old girl. Caregivers do not qualify for kinship funds and have been struggling to purchase new beds for their room.

The child is placed with paternal grandfather and his spouse. The family needs assistance with a new or gently used couch. The one they have currently is only a two seater and is broken down.

Family consists of two adults and two children. There is one male child (9) and one female child (6). The mother and father are trying to leave a toxic living environment.

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.

I have two children who are in need of winter clothing and are in a temporary living situation. The family is struggling to make ends meet and could really use some assistance this year. The children's sizes are girls 5/small and shoe size 7 1/2-8 and boy size XL.
This family of four has just moved to Texas, and are in need of some furniture and appliances. They do not have any living room furniture, and do not have a washer or dryer. The parent also does not have transportation, which makes it difficult to get the students' clothes washed. Because of this, the students sometimes have inconsistent attendance as well. The washer and dryer would allow them to have clean clothing to consistently come to school in. They do not have any family members in the area, or much of a support system here in Texas yet. Any support you can give to this family would be greatly appreciated.
A family comprised of two adults and five children are living in a three-bedroom apartment. During a home visit, the mother had expressed that she is needing two twin mattresses to fit bunk frames, new pillows for the family, and additional cleaning supplies. Because she is not able to purchase mattresses at this time, the children often bedshare. She discussed that her food stamps benefits have been reduced, so she is having to use cash to help supplement this decrease.
I have a young mother of two young children who could really use help making her home safe for her children. She could really use a baby gate, a door alarm, knob covers, and a portable heater that is safe and appropriate for young children to be around.
