Featured Case:

100 Neediest Featured Cases

Ms. B was raising three children on her own, working as a home health care aide, when her sister was murdered last summer. She welcomed her two nieces, ages 9 and 12, into the fold. But the transition has been difficult as the 9-year-old experiences night terrors having been with her mother when she was killed. Ms. B recently lost her job and has been unable to find another one. This first Christmas together as a family of six would be made easier with some financial help, food and toys.

100 Neediest Cases -- Featured Case 2015

Mr. R is a U.S. Army veteran who sometimes experiences hallucinations and blackouts from situations he experienced while serving in the military. He has 15-year-old twin boys, and tries very hard to keep things together for them. One of them has special needs. He also lives with his mother, who does not work, and spends most of her time at church and a senior club and helping her son and grandsons. They would very much appreciate food, clothing and money for rent and utility bills.

Student Artwork
