I am requesting to assist a family with a gift card for groceries. One of the caregivers in the home recently lost her job and the family has been struggling financially to cover living expenses. The family does not qualify for SNAP benefits as they are right above the threshold and caregivers have visited local food pantries to hold them over, however they are still struggling to feed the family of 4. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I am working with a grandmother who has been caring for her granddaughters for the past two years while she awaits licensure to adopt them.
She has provided for them with no financial assistance for the past year and a half and is now facing some financial issues. I am asking for some assistance with an electric bill for the family to help her be able to sustain placement until she is able to adopt the children. Thank you in advance for any assistance that you are able to provide!
Great Aunt has been caring for the child and some of her special needs since she left the hospital. They are wanting to set up her big girl bed with bed rails for safety as she transitions to the bed in the near future. They want to be prepared for this. They have worked hard with very little assistance to maintain this placement and the child's safety. They are working toward adoption at this time.
The Department has filed for the removal of all five children, and they are all separated among family. The family stepped up at the last minute and did not have time to prepare or save up for taking in the children, and we want to ensure that the children stay with their family and they would all benefit from assistance.

I have a single mother with 3 children. 1 year old female, 2- and 5-year-old males and is currently 8 months pregnant. She is in need of household items, baby items for her unborn child, and current children such as beds, bedding, clothing, diapers, wipes and a stroller to accommodate all 4 children. She walks everywhere. She walks daily to drop off the oldest at school and any doctor appointments she needs to attend to. She is seeking help for the stroller the most as she is struggling to physically carry an infant and 2 toddlers on her own. If we can find a quad stroller that would help her have all the kids in one stroller. Helping her with a bus pass as well can help her walk less to get to her destinations needed. She has her own apartment at this time and is currently sleeping on an air mattress with both boys while the little girl sleeps in her crib. She is not currently employed.

This family is struggling financially, and are living with family. The children are sleeping in inflatable mattresses and the one year old is sleeping in a toddler bed with a sibling. We have tried other resources for beds for the children and have been unsuccessful. The children will star school soon and to be able to have a comfortable night sleep will help them wake up, ready to learn. The one year is sleeping with a young sibling and they are not able to have restful nights, they wake up often and at times they have fallen from the bed. Ideally they are in need of 3 sets of bunk beds and a pack and play for the 1 year old, but if just one item can be donated, it is so appreciated. Updated on September 11, 2023 by an Agency Worker This family is still in need of a Pack and Play for a one year old to sleep or a toddler bed.
