Opportunities for Kindness

Utility Bill Assistance

Single mother of 2 elementary-aged boys who recently regained employment and would benefit from support in paying utility bills as she waits for her first paycheck. She has taken initiative to seek out a payment plan for the utility company, but that may increase the overall cost to an unaffordable amount in the end.  

The amount needed is $427.72

Family in need of Pediatric Physical, Occupational and Speech therapy services needed for their almost 2 year old with a traumatic brain injury

A community advocate has contacted us about a family that is newer to the Dublin area. They adopted a 2 year old with a non- accidental traumatic brain injury resulting in cerebral palsy, that also has fetal alcohol syndrome and severe drug exposure in utero.The child was recommended to work with physical, occupational and speech therapies on an intensive basis consisting of 45 hours of therapy costing $9,000 for all 3 disciplines. Due to the intensity and frequency of these visits, insurance will not cover the cost of the required therapy and they are ineligible for associated grants for therapy due to their income being just above the required threshold. The family is also fostering to adopt two additional children. Due mounting medical bills,  limited income, and caring for multiple children with special needs, they are unable to afford the cost of therapy for their child. Dublin Bridges is hoping to offset the cost of these therapies. If you are able to donate, please click on I CAN HELP and donation instructions will be sent to your email.

Moving Cost for Older Adult

An advocate at Syntero has contacted us on behalf of an older adult who is on a very limited income and does not have social or family support. Due to circumstances beyond her control, the individual needs to move from Dublin to Plain City and is unable to afford the cost of movers. Due to physical limitations, she is unable to move the contents of her apartment herself. Dublin Bridges would like to pay for the cost of a moving company (a local company who has offered a discounted rate) to move her belongings at an estimated cost of $700. If you are able to donate towards the cost of the move, please click on I CAN HELP and donation instructions will be sent to you email. 

Homeless Mom and Children

An advocate in one of the schools contacted us about a homeless mom and her two children who need a temporary hotel stay. They have found housing beginning May 1st but need a week's stay at a hotel until then. Dublin Bridges would like to provide them with this stay. We are hoping to raise $500 to help this family.

Moving Costs for Senior

Our partners at Syntero are currently assisting a client who recently moved to Dublin. This client was living in a friend's apartment that had an extra bedroom. She is a single older adult with a low income, relying solely on Social Security. Her plan was to settle down and find a job while living in the apartment, which had a one-year lease. Unfortunately, her friend informed her at short notice that he was terminating the lease at the end of the month. This left her with no choice but to find a new place to live, and she was able to find a subsidized apartment that was more affordable for her. However, the cost of hiring movers to move her belongings to the new apartment is approximately $800, which is more than she can afford. She can only make a small contribution towards this cost. The client would be extremely grateful for financial assistance to cover the moving costs so that she can start her life again in her new home.
