Needs for Foster Families

Flooring Repairs

We have a family where the father is disabled and the mother works at a minimum wage job.  The mobile home suffered damage to the roof and floors during the 2016 flood. They have sought help from FEMA and repair Louisiana and they were turned down. They have 2 teenage children in school.  They have all the materials to remodel/repair the floor in the childrens bathroom. There is virtually no floor left.  The gentleman cannot physically do the work that needs to be done and will take any help he could get.

Mother's second chance

There is a mother who is in the process of getting her children back and she is starting over.  She needs everything she can get for her new apartment.  If anyone is hanging on to anything that you no longer need or use, please contact me at the email below.

Art Supplies

We have a foster child in care that is passionate about drawing and painting.  If anyone can spare some art supplies for this young man, it is a very therapeutic way to deal with trauma. 

Rundown Trailer

There is a single mother of six that is living in a trailer that was damaged by the flood in 2016.  She is in need of severe repair due to mold.  Please email below if you can help
