Developmentally disabled boy and his single mom need help with a U-Haul to move

$150.00 to rent a U-Haul so single mom and her developmentally delayed son can move out of apartment they can't afford due to son's unpredictable medical and behavioral issues causing the mom to lose work and therefor lose hours at work and income. He struggles at school and often the mom has to pick him up early and cannot work as much as she would like to earn more money. She has help with family members offering their assistance in actually moving the items and belongings but cannot afford the U-Haul rental fee of $150.00. She needs to move by the end of April. The actual move is scheduled April 30th, so a rental would need to be arranged by April 29th. Any offer of any amount is greatly appreciated. She has asked her social worker but since the son is a minor, funding is not authorized to be used for this purpose. No program has a remedy for this problem since she wants to move before she is being evicted due to her inability to afford the rent any longer.

Please help support Snickers in her journey to cross the rainbow bridge

Many people have emotional support animals to help with mental health and physical wellness. Any animal owner knows that it is hard and can be heart breaking when they fall ill or get old. I have a client that has 3 cats, they provide comfort when she is in pain with her physical health and when her mental health is preventing her to enjoy life. Snickers (her oldest cat) has been her saving grace for 18 years. She has made it 18 years! Unfortunately, Snickers health is failing due to her age. My client has been dreading having to put her down. She has come to terms and know that it is time to help Snickers suffering. However, my client is on a fixed income and does not have extra funds to cover the procedure. This has been a hindrance since December when we first discussed snickers health decline. This donation would help ease the burden with the financial piece of the process. This process can cost between $ 450 and $500. Any donation would be helpful.

Single mom of disabled son needs washer and electric dryer

UPDATE: A "STACKABLE WASHER AND DRYER IS NEEDED!!! A washer and dryer were going to be donated and arrangements were made for pick-up and delivery when the mom indicated that she forgot to mention that they needed to fit into a closet in her apartment where the washer hook-up and outlets were located!!! Two donors were ready to donate free of charge a washer and dryer until it was indicated that she needed a STACKABLE WASHER AND DRYER. A recently fired (unfairly) employee who worked as an office worker in a medical facility, called to ask about resources and was referred to me to see if I knew anyone who had a washer and dryer to donate. She has to take all of the wash to a laundromat, and it is very expensive and time consuming. Her 6-year-old son has an "adjustment disorder" which requires a lot of patience and therapy appointments. She doesn't receive child support and is living on assistance from the county with SNAP, Medical Assistance and does get housing assistance. She recently applied for Energy Assistance from the CAP Agency but can't afford to purchase her own washer and dryer. She would be so grateful for any donations or if anyone had a used or knew of a used STACKABLE washer and electric dryer for her. They are also sleeping on the floor with a mattress since she needs help with assembling the bunk beds.

Graduating Homeless program- Moving assistance

I have a client who is exiting our GRH program. He has graduated and is in the process of moving to his new residence. He has had some financial hardships due to car issues and repairs. Due to this unexpected expense, he is worried about being able to afford a U-Haul to move.  He has come a long way while on our program. Not only does he have a source of income now, but he has also really buckled down learning not only how to budget but become aware of what his living means are and staying within those means. He tries to plan ahead and has been trying to get a savings saved. Due to him recently earning this income, he has not had very many opportunities to put any money aside for savings.

Disabled senior needs van repair

A disabled senior living on only $883.00 a month from Supplemental Security Income, (SSI) ($802). and Minnesota Supplemental Assistance (MSA), ($81.) is needing a "tranny pump" for her 2011 Dodge Caravan. It has high mileage but has been dependable and it is easy for her to haul and load her oxygen tanks, walker and supplies in it. She inherited it from her deceased boyfriend and is all alone now. She has sentimental value in keeping the van and could not afford to purchase anything else if she doesn't fix it. She states that the engine is good, and it is easy for her to use it. She was diagnosed 5 years ago with Cronic, Obstructive, Pulmonary Disease, (COPD) and needs the oxygen and walker. She just turned 65 and is on Medicare and Medical Assistance. She is receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formally known as Food Stamps, and was sent an Energy Assistance application today from CAP. She was also advised to call the Social Security Administration on why her SSI is lower than the standard of $943.00 a month for 2024. She also was counseled to call her pharmacy and check why her oxygen tanks are not being delivered as she is intitled to. She said she has tried to conserve her oxygen use to make her tanks last longer, but she then gets short of breath, and it is not good for her health!

Gas Card for Moving

I am currently working with a housing client that is moving and needs assistance with a gas card to help her move her items to storage while she looks for a place to live. The client is currently unemployed and looking for employment during this tough time. My client is moving everything on her own and could also use some prayers of positivity to keep moving forward. The client suffers from mental health problems and just had surgery on her leg which makes her public involvement very challenging. The client does not have a support network to help her with this move and could really use a little cheer with a gas card or two for her move. Any amount will help at this time.

Senior couple needs car payment assistance

An elderly woman, who is 58 and not eligible for senior programs yet, called to ask for assistance in paying her delinquent water bill and car payment. Her husband, who is also elderly, has suffered, "severe medical challenges," this last year. He has not worked for over 2 years trying to recover from three separate medical issues that have cost them financially by added bills and the fact that he cannot work. This has caused stress for the wife as she is struggling to support him and keep her job in the public sphere working for the local government. She loves her job but it doesn't pay as much as her husband was earning. She also has mobility issues which makes it difficult to maintain their home since she is the only one that can do it. She is asking for help with her car payment to keep going to work, take husband to scheduled medical appointments and keep her household running. Although she is delinquent on her water bill, that is $450.00 as well, she said she wanted to focus on her car payment and she would figure that out herself. (If anyone wanted to help this this, that would be appreciated:) The CAP Agency's Energy Assistance Program (EAP) does not help this year with water bills since this was just effective during the COVID-19 Pandemic declaration. The husband feels he should be able to get back to work sometime this year but wants to make sure he doesn't suffer a setback by starting to early and is listening to his doctors for his two, distinct illnesses. Thank you to anyone reading this and thank you if you could contribute to this cause. She is applying for EAP and is seeking food resources to lessen that on her strained finances. If anyone wants more details, let me know. She wanted to protect her identify so isn't comfortable disclosing the exact medical diagnosis, but both can be fatal so she is lucky that he is recovering. Thank you.

Washer and Gas Dryer needed for single mom of 7

Are you updating your appliances and need a home for your old models??? Single mom of 7 (one of which is a special needs child) on extremely tight budget in need of a new or gently used washer and gas dryer. Mom has been going to the laundromat for several months and has been struggling financially to keep up with the cost. We are working with mom on trying to increase income but her budget cannot afford this large expense. The washer and dryer were not provided by the landlord so this expense falls on the mother and not one that they are financially able to afford. Mom is very open to a used model as well. Scratch and dent models- gently used good condition Please note: Several washer and dryers have recently listed on FB marketplace
