Recreating their Home

I am working with a bio-mother who has three children under the age of 18 in her care. She also has one adult child living in her care and is caring for her grandson full time, who is a toddler. This is a FULL House!! The family recently has been battling a pest infestation and as a result, had to throw out a large amount of belongings and vacate the home for several months. As the family prepares to be back in the home full time, they are in dire need of furniture. This request would help assist them in safely and comfortably moving back into their home together.

# of people who will be helped:

- Queen Bed FRAME

- Kitchen table

- 6 kitchen chairs

- Dressers

- Plastic Storage Bins (3 requested)

Respite! What is that?

We have had MANY asks for "Respite" from Fostering Families that are in our own Church Family.
Respite (a.k.a. babysitting/child minding) is a need for ALL ages of children in care, and for the Families that love on them.
This could look like a few hours a week, to a maybe even a weekend every so often.
It is a need that is as individual as each child and each Fostering Family.

If you or your family could see yourselves stepping in to shore up these families please respond and we can begin a conversation!
We would love to create community and build beautiful resource pool (aka people like YOU) within our Church family.

**note** each agency requires different checks and balances but don't be intimidated -- each Foster Family can hand hold and help with all the steps involved.

Needs:

# of people who will be helped:

YOU!! People who can come along side and partner as Respite for Fostering Families in our Church.

Winter Gear to get them to school

A single mother with four children, aged 10, 8, 5 and 1 is in need of a winter coat, ski pants and winter boots. She recently moved to Winnipeg from British Columbia, and does not have appropriate winter gear at this time. She has obtained winter clothing and boots for all of her children through Koats for Kids, however she does not have anything for herself. She has recently gone through a separation and a move, and her financial resources are extremely limited while she waits to begin receiving EIA benefits. With the recent change in the weather, she is in need of warmer clothing in order to bring her children back and forth from school.
