A sibling set of four recently reentered care due to physical abuse by their adoptive parents. This is the second time these kids have been in foster care. They were all placed with their older brother and his partner and their two kids. It was a miracle that the brother and his partner were willing to take in all four of the younger siblings but they are in need on one more bed so that they all have their own bed. A Twin bed, mattress and bedding to keep all of these siblings together in the same house.

We have a family who came into care, set of 4 siblings who are being split between two placements. The youngest two, aged 3 and 7, are in dire need of a bed, frame, and possible sheets/pillow. The placement is a family member who also has her own children and went from feeding 5 mouths to 7 and she is struggling financially and also left her job to care for the 3-year-old full time. She is in need of beds for both children as she just doesn't have the extra. If we can get a trundle bed, that would be preferred she said but will take what is given to help. These kids have been through a lot already and we are just trying to ease the stress and help maintain their placement.

Mom, Dad, and their three children live in a home that is not being maintained well by their landlord. Their stove top works but their oven is broken. They are working to install babyproofing in the home to keep their youngest safe. The family has had issues with their plumbing. This is fixed, but they are in the process of ridding the home of many things that were damaged by water during the time the plumbing malfunctioned and are struggling with KCMO's limited trash pickup policy. The home needs cleaning, and the family is working on this currently and has made significant progress. The two older children attend school and do well, and the father is currently searching for employment after being laid off from a good job due to staffing issues and through no fault of his own. The family has had a rough start to the year but is very motivated to get their living conditions back in shape and are using all of the help available to do so. The children have a very loving bond with their parents, especially dad and the baby who clearly adore each other!
