Child with health concerns in need of Pediasure

A 2 year old child with growth concerns and elevated blood levels is in need of Pediasure to provide her with extra calories each day. The family cannot currently afford this because they are out of work and looking for more work. They are requesting 10 cases of Pediasure (they need one bottle each day, so 60 servings to last two months) to cover the need while they work on getting employed. This should cost about $170. Pediasure is not covered by other benefits so they currently are unable to provide this to the child.

Car Seat/Stroller Combo needed

I am working with a mother and infant who are in need of an infant carrier car seat/stroller combination. Mom has some underlying health conditions and this would make it easier for mom to transport infant and also get outside and exercise for her own health. I have included 3 links to car seats/stroller combos that would work well. Thanks for considering!

Help with apartment application fee

I am currently working with a single mother and her four children. She is looking for new housing for herself and her kids and has identified a wonderful apartment that would be close to her extended family. She has recently lost daily parenting support from the kids' father and therefore has been forced to quit her job to take care of the kids full time. The agency is working with her to establish childcare so she can go back to work, but in the meantime finances have been a struggle. We are asking for help in covering her $40 application fee for the apartment she has found. Any help is so appreciated!!

A Heartfelt Plea: Help Provide a Peaceful Goodbye to an Emotional Support Dog

I am writing to you on behalf of my client. She has a senior emotional support dog who has been by her side for over a decade, helping her through everything she experienced, both the good and the bad. Unfortunately, her dog's health has been deteriorating over the last month and my client believes she will need to be put down within a week. My client doesn't have wiggle room in her budget and is very worried about her ability to finance end of life services for her emotional support dog. I would like to help take some stress off her plate by helping her pay for humane euthanasia, as well as a footprint as a keepsake to help her in her grief. I have priced the end-of-life services at Mission Animal Hospital at $300. The end-of-life services this price includes is the final exam, cremation with ashes returned, 2 ink paw prints, and 1 clay paw print when ashes are picked up. My client's emotional support dog is more than a pet or helper but is truly her closest family member. Her dog is her confidant, her closest companion, her most steadfast friend. My client would be extremely appreciative of this financial assistance to give her dog humane end-of-life services.

Gym Membership

I'm working with a 16-year-old girl who has suffered from depression and anxiety for many years. She is struggling to get to school regularly and connect with others. She was invited to go to the gym with a friend and realized it helped her mental health. The gym year membership is $120 that would help boost her self-esteme. A Visa gift card would help this teenager a lot. Thank you for your help.

Special Needs, Special Grandma: Your Support Can Change Their Lives

Good afternoon, I am writing to you on behalf of my client, a devoted grandmother, who has taken on the responsibility of raising her two grandchildren, both under the age of 2 years old, after they were placed in foster care. My client is an incredible woman who has selflessly opened her heart and home to these children, providing them with love, stability, and care. However, she is now facing financial challenges, as she relies solely on her disability social security to make ends meet. Despite her limited resources, she is determined to provide the best possible upbringing for her grandchildren. One of her grandchildren has nonverbal autism, which requires additional support and resources. My client is doing her best to ensure that her grandchild receives necessary treatments, despite the significant strain on her finances. Her grandchild was accepted into Frasier, which will help them both learn more about his diagnosis and the best ways in which they might be supported. My client has a vehicle but hasn't been able to update her registration, now she is unable to bring her grandchildren to their appointments. This has caused a lot of added stress as her grandchild can easily become overstimulated and struggles to ride public transportation safely. Your financial assistance would mean the world to my client and take quite a bit of stress off of her shoulders. Thank you for considering this request and for your compassion towards my client and her grandchildren. Your support is deeply appreciated and will have a lasting impact on their lives.

Family with Medically Fragile Child needs help with Food, Gas, Rent

Update as of 5/29- Rent will be paid up to date :) They still have other bills that are past due so hoping to get caught up on all within the next month. At this time, Walmart or Holiday Gas gift cards would be helpful or assistance to pay utility bills listed below. Thank you! I recently opened to a young family with a medically fragile daughter. She qualifies for numerous hours per day of nursing and Personal Care attendant services but is only receiving 8-16 hours per week of nursing at this time. Mom provides the care during the day while dad sleeps and dad provides care at night while mom sleeps. We are opening them to a program that will help meet all of these needs eventually but as with most services these days, there are wait lists and timelines. Other needs include size 6 diapers, Walmart gift cards for groceries, Holiday gas cards. Thank you for any assistance. They are very appreciative.
