Mom entered into a shelter with the children and was assisted in a getting a furnished apartment in October 2020. The family has now moved into MB Housing and will have a permanent home ... however ... the family does not have any household furnishings.

Child Welfare

Metal Bed = Prevention!!

Four siblings are being cared for by their grandmother. Grandma has been sleeping on the couch so that each of the children could have their own bed. Grandma is now finding it painful to sleep on the couch after several months of doing so. She is hoping to get a METAL bunkbed frame so the children can share and she can sleep in a real bed. CFS is purchasing 2 single mattresses. Grandma apologizes for appearing fussy but she is absolutely terrified of bedbugs and only wants a used metal bunkbed frame so that she can thoroughly clean and inspect it.
*** We did push and offer to provide "Extra Love" for this family with the proper bedding for the two grandsons who will move into these beds!!

Needs:

# of people who will be helped:

2 X Twin Mattress Protectors (from spills/pests/germs)

Twin Sheets for 2 boys (no color preference)

2 pillows

 

*** UPDATE ***

Metal Bunk Bed is ordered!!! Hard to find one in the whole city!!
