A family on a fixed income is in need of help purchasing laundry detergent for sensitive skin.
The family can no longer buy bargain brands due to contact allergies that their children have developed. The family's fixed income has created financial strain with the rising cost of groceries and household items. The need to purchase name brand detergent creates an even greater financial strain.
We are asking for 4 large containers of All Free and Clear laundry detergent (140oz or larger), and 4 boxes of All Free and Clear dryer sheets. The detergent and dryer sheets need to say Unscented or Perfume Free. Any and all assistance towards this need is greatly appreciated!
This is a family of 3. There are 2 children and a mother. Mother works, but struggles. Both children (11 and 12) are autistic and one is non- verbal. The non-verbal child is extremely intelligent. The family is in need of a couple of devices (tablets or phones). They had one, but it recently cracked. These devices would not have to be new just something for them to be able to learn with in the summer. The oldest child has been teaching herself Japanese with online sites.
***Help a Single father of 3***
I am working with a single father of 3 children. They have been without hot water in their home for 3 months. The father has been boiling water on their stove in order to provide the children with warm baths. This has led to his already struggling stove to stop working. Dad states he cooks a lot and is now without a way to provide home cooked meals or warm water for his children to bathe. He advised that a stove would be best but all he needs is a "cooking plate" to get by. I have provided a link below to a cooking plate that is $91.98 from amazon.
** I am working with the family to find a way to provide a new water heater so that the family can have hot water in the home.**
Please help! This caregiver has gone above and beyond to ensure these children do not enter the foster care system. She has taken 3 children when originally only made arrangements for one child, but cares about these children so much was willing to help. She is in need of assistance with diapers, wipes, and clothing to help her ensure these children can stay in the home. She hasn’t asked for any help with the children until now, and it would greatly help this family stay together. Please help this amazing caregiver keep these children in her home!
This request is to help a young, single mother of 3 reunified with her children in September 2023. She has maintained them in home since reunification and continues to meet their basic needs. Mother has all baby and toddler supplies but needs help getting a car seat for her 3 year old, as well as one for her infant child. Mother also needs help obtaining a pack n play for the infant child. If this request is fulfilled, it will continue to support this mother and allow them to spend limited funds on other baby/toddler items/supplies.
A single mom and her son who have recently left their homes due to a domestic violence situation are in need of a washer and dryer as they have recently moved into a new apartment and do not have laundromats within walking distance.
A preschool child with special needs and his parents recently lost everything they own, including their apartment, in a horrible fire. The family has shared specific items of need with the school that are crucial for their wellbeing and that will help them begin to put their lives back together.
Good morning. Is there a way that you could send us a list of the items they are in need of? The request just says supplies. Additional details would be appreciated. Thanks so much for all you do! Lee-Ann from Patterson Park Church
A single mother is moving into a new home in April. She has 3 children. She is in need of 2 twin beds for her oldest 2 children. This request being filled will help strengthen the household and provide some financial relief for this mother during the moving process.
I have a family of 8 children and 2 adults. Both parents work, but they still barely make it.
One of the children are sleeping on a blow up mattress that has a hole and keeps deflating. She has a loft style bed but family needs a regular twin size mattress (not box spring) . She would also love twinkle lights, but that is a want not a need.: )
Hi! This is Justen Hyland from fairhaven. We have a couple mattresses that were donated and would be happy to share one! Also happy to buy some twinkle lights if you can help me understand what those are 😀

Hi Justin and thank you for sharing to support this need! As for the twinkle lights I had to google it myself because I am not that hip. It looks like they’re a curtain style light used to decorate a bedroom. I saw some

We have a mattress with possible delivery at 12:30pm on Monday for this family. Can you help connect us to the family?
This family needs plastic mattress protectors and sheets for their son who is having accidents at night, due to past trauma. They received a brand-new twin bed and mattress and need these plastic mattress protectors and sheets to keep the bedding from being ruined.
Mother (Spanish speaking) and her two children (English speaking) are struggling to pay for their housing and utilities for the month of April. The agency became involved due to a domestic violence incident and father was arrested and remains in jail and could face deportation due to his immigration status. The court issued a No Contact Order protecting mother and the children and if he gets out of jail, he cannot make any type of contact with the family. He was the main bread winner for the family. Mother recently obtained employment but will not be able to pay rent/utilities in April. She did get herself on a payment plan for utilities. She does not have a lease and the landlord has already rent for April by $100.00 and if she is not able to pay for April rent by the 1st, he is going to raise the rent by another $100.00 bringing the total to $800.00. Mother is seeking more affordable housing, but will not be able to move by the beginning of April.
A hard working mother of 2 just moved into a new home to begin a fresh start for her and her children. She works very hard to make ends meet and due to just paying for a new place, does not have a lot of money for extra things. At this time she is in need of a lot of furnishings but a priority are beds. Specifically a twin bed (for a boy) with all furnishings, a queen bed (for herself) with all furnishings and twin size bedding for her daughter as well. This would allow the family to have a good nights rest and provide safety and stability for their children.
(Need 2 of 2) Hard working parents with 3 children are making ends meet but are not able to purchase several important household items. The family does not have a washer and dryer and do not have additional funding to help obtain this. They are also in need of a kitchen table and chairs. Any help with meeting these needs would help provide a more stable home. Thank you so much for considering!
(Need 1 of 2) Hard working parents with 3 children are making ends meet but are not able to purchase several important household items. All family members are currently sleeping on air mattresses. If they are able to have their own beds to sleep on it would provide them with a good nights sleep to help with their daily living and overall wellbeing. I am requesting a twin bunk bed, a twin bed, and a queen bed with everything with them (bedding, frames, mattresses etc). Thank you so much for considering!
