This family is currently facing financial hardship due to being a single-income household, as mom has been facing some health issues. They're dealing with food insecurity and struggling to pay utility bills, as well as recently having to pay for bed bug treatment for the home. They already receive food stamps and utilize community resources (e.g., Just Food) when they can.
I think they'll take any amount of relief they can get, and in any form, whether it's gas cards so they can get to work, gift cards for the grocery store, cash reimbursement for bed bug treatment, etc. In addition, the family is facing financial hardship to provide Christmas gifts.
A NRKIN foster home received a new placement, an infant girl on 11/17. The foster home has the infant's three other sisters, all ages 3 and younger. The home greatly needs a crib and mattress for the infant. The home could also use a two-child stroller as the infant's older sister just turned one. Additionally, the older sister could use a car seat as that car seat will now be used for the new infant. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
A NRKIN foster home who has placement of four sisters, ages 3 and younger are in need of a new van as their current van has numerous mechanical issues. The family needs help purchasing a new van or financial assistance making repairs on current van. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

a girl who comes from very meek means. She comes from a family who is rifled with drugs, alcohol, physical, mental, and sexual abuse. She is placed with a well meaning relative who has 4 children of her own and can't afford to put J through driver's education. J tried studying and taking the exam on her own but was unsuccessful 2 times. I offered to get her into driver's education so that she has time to take the test in parts, and not all at one time. She was so happy that this was an option for her as it never was before. Please help with this donation so that J is able to start driving like other 18 year old kids her age.

Single mother raising 2 children while working a part time job. This family is living below income and all family members have strong mental health diagnosis. While worker was conducting a meeting, it was noted that the children have rags for blankets both on their beds and lounging in the livingroom. This family had most their blankets destroyed by puppies that were born last week and years of love by the children. While the home has heat, the home gets chilly.

Thank you so much for considering to give these children something warm to snuggle with and keep warm while sleeping at night.

I am currently working with a grandmother and her 2 grandchildren due to safety concerns in the home related to 1 grandchild's behavior. A grandmother is overwhelmed with the responsibility and energy it is taking to help make sure her grandchild is minimizing unwanted behavior. Unfortunately, due to some of those behaviors her home has several holes in the wall and broken doors. I would love to get a handyman in the home to help fix the damage or supply the needed items to get these things replaced. Additionally, other items they are in need of being a TV, DVD player, and home phone. Any help would be appreciated to help his grandmother reclaim her home.
I am unclear on the price range of 3 new interior doors.

They recently moved into more affordable housing after being on a waitlist for a long time and are needing some assistance with their past-due water bill.

Plus it will help minimize her stress as she is getting ready to have her baby in January.

Parents with 6 children (ages 3 months old to 14 years old) are being evicted from their home on 11/15. The family does not have any close friends or other family they can stay with. There are currently no housing programs that have available homes ASAP for this size of family. We are requesting funds to temporarily put them in a hotel, while we take action for a long-term housing plan with assistance from housing focused agencies. We are worried if we cannot keep them in a hotel for some time, they would have to move to go to a shelter in a different town. Dad is currently working and doing well with his job that he just started so we are hoping to keep them in Lawrence until we can figure out next steps, so dad can continue to work - as they also have no transportation. Also requesting boxes and moving supplies to start packing the items they will be taking with.
