Family #1 – Rent & Car Repairs: $1,600 Needed

Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong and because of this mom does not feel as prepared for baby #3.  Mom lost her job because the business where she worked closed.   She was able to find part time work but is still searching for 40 hours each week.  Due to her limited ability to pump, she now has to use formula which costs more money.  Her husband recently had a pancreas transplant due to his Diabetes.  Unfortunately, the first transplant was not successful and with the second transplant the donor had e coli.   As a result, he lost his job but is actually working now.  Insurance got messed up and they wouldn’t pay for his medication.  Their resources are limited and their electricity was recently turned off.  Mom made arrangements to have it turned back on and has been working on things with the insurance company.  She is limited on what she has for her baby but thinks they will be ok.  Now they have car trouble and are faced with a $700 repair bill.  They need to pay this or it will impact getting to work.  With this unexpected expense, they need help paying for their rent.  Mom has had to increase her medication for anxiety and depression.  Any help you can provide would be so appreciated.

Family #2 – Rent:  $1,457 Needed

When my boyfriend left me when I was 5 months pregnant, I was scared and didn’t know what I was going to do.  He was supposed to help me and I felt so alone.  I was working as much as I could to save as much money as I could.  I knew my job did not offer any maternity leave so things would be tight.  When my baby was born, I managed to pay my September and October bills by tapping into my savings.  I pay all my own infant and living expenses but an unable to cover the cost for my full rent of 1457.70 for November.  I found someone who can watch my beautiful baby and my job is willing to give me more hours so I will be ok if I can just get help for this one month of rent.

Family #3 – Rent:  $1,100 Needed

“Sarah” is a single mom of two children ages 12 and 3 months.  She returned to work after 4 weeks of giving birth but her day care was unreliable so she voluntarily resigned.  She applied for child care assistance and her application is still pending.  She plans to return to work in a few weeks when her child care assistance has been approved.  She also has an another job lined up so she’ll be working full time.  She just received a letter from her landlord that if she doesn’t pay her rent on time he’ll start the eviction process.  Each day is a struggle but she is really trying and can see the light.  Any help you can provide toward her rent would be so helpful

Family #4 – Rent:  $973 Needed

I have been working as a server at a restaurant.   Due to my pregnancy, it is difficult to be rushing on my feet all day, especially now that I am in my third trimester.   My employer noticed that it was difficult for me and as a result, cut my hours and put me on call.  So if they are not busy, they call me to tell me not to come in.  This makes it extremely difficult to pay my bills.  I have been applying for other jobs but it is really hard to find a job when you are three months pregnant.  My baby should arrive any day now and thankfully, I do have someone that can watch her so I can start working again.  I don’t know what I’m going to do.  If you could help with my rent, I would be so thankful.

Family #5 – Rent:  $1,000 Needed

Mom plans to return to work when she is medically cleared.  She is in the process of applying for social security disability because she has Stage 5 Renal Kidney Failure and was scheduled for a transplant prior to getting pregnant.  She has had seven hospitalizations during her pregnancy and was not able to work consistently.  She then delivered early at 35 weeks.  Her baby is doing well and mom is hanging in there.  Some days are better than others but she is still hopeful about her future.  She is on her own so anything you can do to help with her rent is appreciated so she experience some relief.

10 Portable Cribs: $1,000 Needed

Each year 3,700 babies die from sleep related deaths.  To prevent this, we distribute portable cribs and provide safe sleep education.  In one day, we received 10 applications for portable cribs from families who can’t afford a safe place for their babies to sleep.  Each portable crib costs $100.

Any amount will help!

100% of funds raised will help Cradle of Hope families.

Infant Safe Sleep Week
The Gov has declared October 6-12 as Infant Safe Sleep Week in MN.
To promote safe sleep, the I-35W St. Anthony Falls Bridge in Minneapolis will be illuminated in blue, light blue and pink on October 11 and 12. Be sure to encourage all to practice the ABCs of Safe Sleep:
  • A = ALONE:
  • Infants should always sleep or nap alone.
 
  • B = BACK:
  • Infants should always sleep or nap on their backs.
 
  • C = CRIB:
  • Infants should always sleep or nap in their own safety-approved crib or play yard.
  • (without blankets or pillows)
Cradle of Hope is expected to distribute 2,500 portable cribs by December 31, 2019. 
We have already distributed 1,899 cribs but we need your help. 
If you would like to donate so we can ensure that every baby in MN has a safe place to sleep, please click HERE (any amount will help).   

 

3,700 babies die each year due to SUID (Sudden Unexpected Infant Death) which consists of Accidental Strangulation and Suffocation in bed and SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome – the unexplained sleep related death of a baby under 1 year).  Each year, 50 babies die from SUID in Minnesota.
2019 Summer Newsletter

Everything seemed to be going well for Greg and Sarah.  They had just purchased their first home a year ago and their daughter was adjusting well to first grade.  They were excited when they found out they would be having another baby and started to save as much money as they could.  They began getting their home ready and their seven year old daughter, Emma, was excited to become a big sister.  Unfortunately, their joy was short lived.  During Sarah’s second trimester of pregnancy, she began experiencing sharp pains and knew something was wrong. At her Doctor’s visit they were told, due to medical complications, the baby would need to be delivered immediately.  At 23 weeks, Natalie was born weighing only 2 pounds 1 ounce.  Despite dealing with lung disease, a heart murmur, difficulty breathing on her own, and problems with her eyes, Natalie continued to fight for her life.  With all the unexpected medical bills, they did not have enough funds to make their next mortgage payment and they did not know what they were going to.  Cradle of Hope stepped in to help this family with their mortgage payment and after four months in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Natalie went home with her family.

“This was the worst situation we’ve had to deal with and we didn’t know what this would mean for our family. We are so grateful to Cradle of Hope. We have our home and our family. Thank you so much!” -S

  • to have hope when faced with a crisis.

I thought I found the love of my life and was excited when I found out I was pregnant.  I was devastated when my boyfriend didn’t want the baby.  When I decided to keep the baby, he left and I couldn’t find him anywhere.  I felt so alone.  Cradle of Hope paid my rent and I began working with a life coach.  My daughter is not two months old and she’s amazing! I return to work next week.  I’m so grateful for Cradle of Hope because you were there when I had no one.  Thank You! – A.Y.

  • Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
