Funding to replace appliances in Division of Indian Work’s (DIW) Healing Spirit House which supports up to five American Indian long-term foster care males ages 16-21. Funding will ensure that the supportive “home” that DIW has set up for their American Indian foster care boys takes care of their basic needs. Staff works to provide young men with the support they need to stay in school and graduate and learn the skills they will need to transition to successful, independent living. But they also need to consider their basic needs. One of the ways they do this is to make sure they have appliances that are in working order, e.g., a washer and dryer for clean clothes, a refrigerator that keeps food cold and/or frozen, a safely operating stove to prepare meals, a microwave for heating snacks, a dishwasher to make sure dishes are clean etc. This kind of investment shows their boys that they do care about giving them a space that really feels like a stable home and that they will make sure their needs are met. This can go a long way toward helping them feel like they are cared for and that they do matter.
