Prepping to take foster-children

$1,320 of $3,500 goal

Raised by 18 people in 7 months

We have settled here in Munhall and have been lucky enough to have 6 children between us. In our lives we have both benefited from adults outside of our family who have been there for us in a variety of ways. We feel it is something that we would love to be able to do for others as well.

We are looking to open our home to help foster children in our area. Initially this was to be a slower process for us to prep our space accordingly, however it appears that the demand for homes is MUCH greater than we expected. The sooner we can have our home prepared the sooner we can begin helping the children.

Here is what we need to do in order to make the house appropriate for a greater number of children:

- Finish out the attic to turn in into an extra bedroom. (venting, insulation, framing, sheetrock)
- Finish enclosing a partial open living space to create an extra bedroom. (framing, sheet rock, door)
- Replace plumbing in upstairs shower. (wall, piping, faucet)
- Join two gas & water systems together to allow for full use of the second bathroom.

These are all things that we orginially were going to be doing over the next couple of years, but with the dire need for placeable homes doing this will make us able to take in children before the beginning of the school year. We have been asked if we can be ready as soon a possible as they already have placements for us.

And so, we are asking you to help us help them. 

They need a home and a family and we would love to be able to help give them what they need.

First room is almost done! We have moved the eldest kidling downstairs. It's not perfect yet, but should have the framework and the doors up shortly. She is very happy to be in her own room.

Thank you to all of you who have helped. Once this part is done, we'll begin messing with the insulation of the attic room and then start getting the framing for the walls up there. The second eldest kidling is chomping at the bit to help get that up and running.

I will be sharing photos as the projects continue.

Love to you all!

In two days we raised 10%! Thank you so much. There is still a long way to go though. As time moves forward Samantha and I are more excited about the possibility of helping these kids out.

Again, if you are able to help great. If not, if you could at least share that would be amazing.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
