Help Reunify a Bio Family

Critical Request
The two children were recently reunited with their father and are on a Trial Home Visit. Due to a previous court order, the father had to reside away from his wife and children for the past two months and provide income for two households. One of the children has extreme behaviors and has been in and out of acute hospital stays. Father has had to miss work due to these hospital stays which has affected the household income. Father and his wife are now having marital concerns and father is looking for alternate housing. The stress of the child and his behaviors is part of the reason for this separation. Father is in need of childcare assistance. The children attend an after-school program in Decatur Township in Indianapolis. Father does not qualify for DCS assistance since he is a biological parent and not a placement. Father needs this service to continue the process of reunification. We are asking for childcare to be paid to get us to the end of the case and allow for the child to get his evaluation and treatment to enable father to work more consistent hours. Child care weekly is 85.00 per child each week.

Deirdre: Hello, I am looking into seeing if our church can partially assist with this. In the meantime, I just wanted to check and see if Father has looked into CCDF vouchers to help pay ofr aftercare. Based on his income he may qualify if the aftercare accepts CCDF vouchers.
