I am working with a family who is homeless and doubled-up with a friend. Mom is a single-parent struggling to keep her head above water while caring for her 4 children. She has a good job and is trying to save money to find a new rental of their own, but her lack of transportation is putting her employment at risk. Mom has been able to put down $1000 on a vehicle but needs help covering the remaining $500 of the $1500 down payment at Victory Chevy in Smithville. Mom can cover the monthly payment going forward, but the deposit has become more than she can handle at this point in time. I am requesting assistance from a church or community member who would be willing to help this mom cover her vehicle down payment. Having a vehicle is a lifeline for this family, and mom's success at pulling herself and her family out of this situation is directly dependent on her ability to get to work and maintain employment. Any assistance that can be provided would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support for this struggling family.

Normal Request
I have a female student who is excited to have joined the girls wrestling team but doesn't receive encouragement or support at home. She also lives in a single-parent family who struggles financially. The school is able to provide for most of my student's wrestling needs, but she still needs a pair of wrestling shoes that are approved for the mat. I am hoping that a church or member of the community would please help us to provide these for her. I have included below the details about the shoes needed: ASICS Men's Matflex 6 Wrestling Shoes (These shoes come in men's sizes, so she would need a size 8.) If you are able to help, thank you in advance for your compassion and generosity.

Pregnant mom with two children needs kitchen table (maybe a high top) to eat at. There's only a small space to fit it in.They are currently eating on a tray placed on a bench. We would love for them to have a table to eat at by Thanksgiving. She could use a small desk and chair for work at home employment. All three are sharing one dresser, so need one dresser. The floors are a hard tile throughout their place, so a large living room rug and a bedroom rug would be great!

High Urgency Request
This is a Park Hill family who has children in 2 schools within the district. Due to some recent deaths in the family, they had to pay for travel to get to funeral services out of state. That added expense, in addition to car repair, has caused them to fall behind in rent. Parents have a court date coming up in December, and they run the risk of being evicted if they do not pay the back rent in time. The school social worker helped the family apply for rent with SAFHR, but the family and social worker are worried their application will not be processed in time, and they will be at risk for homelessness if they are forced to move out. Any/and all help would be greatly appreciated, and they will decline the past due rent amount from SAFHR should this be fixed prior to their assistance application being processed.

Normal Need
We responded to a CarePortal request for this family back in September. Bio family had just reintegrated with their two female children ages 5 and 4 and were needing help with rent and two dressers. We were able to connect on both of the needs and met this sweet family in person to deliver the items. Soon after, a car battery installation was needed and before we even had a chance to have one of our volunteers get over there to help, dad had already taken care of it himself. They have a strong desire to be independent. We have been staying in touch with them and they recently let us know that the vehicle had broken down for good. Thankfully, they have another car they can use if the past due payment on it is made. They are able to afford the monthly payments on their own, they just need help getting caught up. Any amount is appreciated and will help get them closer to self-sufficiency again.

As a previous worker at Children's Division I know first hand the stress and hard work these workers go through. I would love to spread some love to the local Children's Division office downtown KC by supplying them with an Ice Maker. This seem like a small thing but they have been needing an ice maker since I was there 2 1/2 years ago and even before then. They have an older fridge that they have some ice trays in the freezer but that is not enough for everyone to add some ice to their beverages. An Ice maker would be a huge blessing to these workers as they can grab ice and water on their way to their next visit. They could grab ice for the soda donated to them from churches. I have done some research on ice makers and have found a few that could work for their break room space. I am asking $500 for the ice maker and an additional $500 to help cheer up their break room adding new chairs, tables and items to make it feel more inviting and comfortable. These items could go a long way for these workers and just in time for the hot days coming up! Thank you!

Normal Need
We are working with a single mom with 3 children and has been homeless for about 5 months. She recently found employment and is doing her best to get back on her feet. Unfortunately her car has recently broken down and is at risk of losing her job. We helped her get her car in for an assessment and unfortunately the repair costs exceed the value of the vehicle. We are looking for a vehicle donation, or to raise the funds to cover the cost of an older Explorer model along with any additional costs for repair of the replacement vehicle. Reliable transportation is so critical to helping families regain and sustain stability; we would really love to be able to bring some good news to this mother. Thank you so much for considering this need!
