Over the past week, our staff has been working hard to safely care for the needs of others in our residential centers. Now as our caseworkers learn about needs of their clients in the community we have identified several families in crisis -- families without the means to address the havoc #derecho2020 left to their homes and lives. These needs are great.
One family recently shared with us how the August 10th storm tore a hole in the roof of their home and ruined the beds of the mother and the children. With no emergency savings of her own to access, this mom turned to Four Oaks and we are working on finding replacement beds for her and her family. A single mother and aunt of a second family reached out to us this week asking for assistance caring for the seven children in her care - in addition to her post-partum sister.
All funds given to this campaign page - 100% of them - will be directed by Four Oaks to serving families like these in the Cedar Rapids area.
