My grandchildren call me Nana. I am doing all I can to care for 2 of my grandchildren ages 1 and 2. I am now unlicensed Kinship Fosterparent. In Arizona as Unlicensed kinship, the state helps you with $2.47 a day. To support the children while the parents do what they need to to have the kids with each of them, I need to get licensed. Daycare costs, diapers, pull ups, clothing , transportation...all adds up. To get licensed we have spent everything we had, sold items that were cherished. Begged.Borrowed. ..and I have taken all my older daughters paycheck each week to keep our head above water. All the savings we had is gone. I need to replace the cracked windshield on my car (about $260). Make needed repairs and get a tune up. Replace a tail light. Get a radior overflow cap, replace a seat belt. Get carseat anchirs installed. Get my kitchen floor replaced (bare pressboard, peeling linolium). About $800 as I have the flooring. Just needs the glue and hiring someone. Buy doors for the kitchen cabinets and have drawers made. If you can help with this final 2 month push. I have 3 more classes. 4 more weeks. The the rest of the inspections. Fingerprints and cpr /first aid/aed are done. Lock boxes for meds in fridge, my room and bathroom. First aid kits. Co2 and smoke. Fire extinguisher. So much more including 1t00 in repairs on the car in the past 7 weeks. I am close to being ready for a licensing inspection. I really need to get this finished. Will you help?
