Help Strengthen a Bio Family
8
High Urgency Request
The family has been homeless and living from one relative’s home to another for several months. The family had heavily relied on paternal aunt for housing and childcare which allowed both parents to work to be able to pay for food and gas. Recently, paternal aunt is no longer able to support the family due to the needs of her own children, and the family is in a state of crisis. They can stay with another paternal aunt at least for the rest of the month, however mom had to quit her job to be able to be with the children during the day. While the family does have food stamps, they have not been able to make it through the month without additional support. Parents have been taking the children to local kitchens for meals and pantries for food to bring home but are now struggling to pay for the gas needed to go to and from community resources. Dad is still working as much as possible, however they are struggling especially between paychecks. Asking for any amount of gas gift cards.

Meeting this request would help ease the financial burden the family is facing and ensure the new baby has a safe space to sleep and grow.

With your help, we can keep this group of hardworking heroes moving sharply and making accurate judgements when considering the safety of our youth-- anything would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
