This request is for a relative placement that will be taking placement of their 14 year old sibling. The relative wants to be a strong support and placement for their younger sibling as they have shared traumatic experiences and this relative wants to help their younger sibling as much as they can. The relative is in dire need of a bed and dresser for this teen. Any help would be greatly appreciated as the teen will be discharged from the hospital and placed today.

Single mother and 3 children moved back to St. Joseph to live with family and escape a severely violent life with mother's ex-boyfriend. The family is now safe but the mother's vehicle has a possible fly wheel problem. The mother can afford to pay some for repair/s but income is limited. Mother does work while the children are in school daily and life would be much easier if their vehicle was repaired. The vehicle is a 2011 Ford Fusion.

Two siblinigs with different fathers will soon be seperated through ICPC. One sibling moveing out east to live with paternal family, while the other remains in Missouri working towards Independent Living. If they could communicate with each other the trauma of the seperation would be reduced. I am asking for two (2) simple tablets that would allow the siblings to video chat via the internet.

This request is for a relative placement out of state. They are anxiously awaiting ICPC to be completed so they can take placement. This is a young couple who are in need of everything baby. They do live in Delaware so if the items are purchased CD would asked that they are shipped to this family directly. However gift cards would work as well so this family can buy the things they want specifically. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me. For Safety & Cleaning they could really benefit from outlet covers, cabinet locks, and an oversized baby gate for the stairs. The gift card is to get the various other items needed in order to make placement

Critical Need
A family of 5 is currently in desperate need of financial assistance with an overdue electric bill ($3,700) and an $800 phone bill as soon as possible. They were staying with the wife's mother, but were recently told that only the children could stay. This forced the husband and wife to go back to an unlighted home, and they are currently living by candlelight (have been since Thursday 9/29). Both husband and wife are unemployed. The husband is interviewing this Wednesday, but the wife is currently awaiting medical clearance to start back at Amazon after an osteoarthritis flair up.

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.

Normal Need
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!

Critical Need
A single mom with an 8 year-old boy and 9 year-old girl coming out of homelessness after losing disability benefits and are in major need of funding for utility bills. Dad is an addict and not in the picture and uncle on dad's side is helping them get stable. They are staying in an empty house owned by a relative of the uncle and he is paying their rent for now but they are living with no furniture, water or electricity. There are past due balances and activation fees on the electric and water that need to be paid in order for them to be turned on, totaling almost $1500, but any amount helps! We are hoping the CarePortal community can contribute some funds to help get the utilities turned on for this family.
