Family with Autistic child needs fencing

The family has three children under 9 years old. Two of the children are autistic, one of them severely autistic. The child is escaping the yard where a 7 foot fence has been patched together. The family is in need of fencing to build a new and adequate fence to keep the child safe. Even with constant supervision the child is able to construct means to escape the yard ( as witnessed by this social worker). Father is a disabled veteran and mother is a full time student. The family income is not sufficient to purchase the fencing required for a new fence. If you know of a resource, have time to help build, or have fencing to donate please let me know. Thank you in advance!

Single Dad Needs a Washer and Dryer

Thank you! With much gratitude the family accepted a donated washer and dryer set this week. The generosity of the community and quick response warmed their hearts, as did the fact that THREE washing machines were offered to him in one week's time.

Single dad of 8 year old boy would be grateful for a washer and dryer. Dad often has to choose between rent and food; buying his own machines is not feasible. Mom is not involved with the family, so Dad works hard alone to make a good home, but is spending too much TIME and MONEY at coin-operated Laundromats. There is a hook-up ready in their apartment, waiting for a washing machine and dryer. Dad and son include their hopes for a washer and dryer in their nightly prayers. Dad has a work van and will even come pick up, if necessary.

Used couch and area rugs needed

Family of three with both parents are disabled and mom is medically fragile and it has impacted her ability to manage an older family cat that had incontinent issues before it passed away. Subsequently it left the carpets and furniture in the home soiled beyond repair but family has been unable to replace the carpeting due to it being a rental. The family is unable to afford to replace the soiled couch, love seat, and recliner they currently have. Use of the furniture or sitting on floor to play leaves an odor of animal urine/smell on residents or guests clothing. Family has worked diligently to address the odor cleaning the carpets and furniture but the smell returns shortly after treatment. I am looking for possible assistance in gently used furniture pieces for the home as well as possible two large area rugs for the floors. The family is without transportation and relies on public transit to meet their needs. Any help in possible delivery is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your consideration in helping this family. My contact and direct line is (360)993-7896 and my email address is

Appliance Repair Needed

I have a family with a mother, a teenage daughter and a teenage son. The teenage son has a severe medical condition where a functioning washer and dryer would be SO helpful to them. They have a nice set of a Kitchenaid washer and dryer but neither are working and they can’t afford to fix them. They are wondering if someone can come to the home to fix the washer and dryer for them. The dryer spins stuff but doesn’t heat and they don’t know what’s going on with the washer.

THANK YOU ALL for providing 3 mattresses, box springs, and frames.

We want to say thank you for all the response to this alert. The mattresses have been delivered and this family will be sleeping in comfort tonight thanks to the generosity of this group.

This ex-homeless mother with three children in the FAR pathway has recently moved into her own apartment. She is doing what it takes to move forward in life and do the best things for her kids. One of her children is special needs and just recently they all were homeless. They are looking forward to the next chapter of life in a safe place. If you know of anywhere that has a few mattresses, that would be a huge help.
