Help Reunify a Bio Family
High Urgency Request
The Department is working with a family whose 2-year-old and infant daughters were recently removed from the home and placed with kin. The parents are having frequent visits with the children at the kin home, however, the two homes are far apart and the cost of gas to visit twice per day has placed a financial hardship on the family. The mother has been out of work due to having a newborn and they had been living on one income. The family is in need of a gift card for gas. This assistance will allow parents to continue to have frequent contact with their daughters while they get started in their treatment plans and work towards reunification. Any assistance with this need is greatly appreciated!

Help Strengthen a Bio Family
Normal Request
Hello everyone! I am currently working with a to help find resources here in El Paso County. Family does not speak English and are struggling to pay rent. The family consists of a 17 year old mom (in school) and their aunt, who is their main support. However, the aunt just went through surgery due to cancer and is currently recovering. She has not been able to return to work due to the surgery and is behind 2 months of rent. She is in need of $1460, and we have looked into both catholic Charities, where it's possible she will have to wait a long time and the hospital, however, they did not offer any case management to see if there is a need. I am able to help with $730 of the rent and was hoping to come on here to see if I can get this family help with the remaining amount. The aunt will be back to work by the end of the month and has a plan with the landlord once these 2 months are covered. Thank you for reading!
