High Urgency Request
A single mother of 3 who has recently moved into a new home due to unsafe living conditions is looking for assistance with a family sofa for their home. Currently the family is sitting on crates in the living room and eating off a children's play table. The family would benefit from having a clean place to eat and allow the family to enjoy each others company together this holiday season. Family would prefer a new family sofa that can be a single or two piece set.

Normal Request
Grandma is the caregiver for the children in the family. She is living off of her social security and cannot afford to buy 2 new tires for her 2004 CRV. She indicated that her car also has an oil leak. Grandma does not have disposable income and with the holidays coming up it's even harder to afford all that they need. Helping this family with tires and possibly with the oil leak will help them to have an easier and less stressful holiday season. The car leak estimate is from a google search, it is not known what the cost would be to look into a repair. Tires would be closer to that $100 a piece number. Her car currently has Pirelli tires.

High Urgency Request
A family of a single mom of 5 has been homeless since July after being told they would be removed from the apartment due to the property management’s stipulation of not having more than 2 persons per room, and they were residing in a 2 bedroom apartment. The younger two children (17 and 12) have been residing at friend’s house’s to remain in their same schools, Mom and the three younger children, ages 8 and below, have been staying with Mom’s sister when she has her custodial time, and the children stay with their bio-dad on his custodial time, in which Mom sometimes stays in her vehicle. Mom works full time but has been struggling to pay a previous Evergy bill, which was in her name only and not her ex-husband and has prevented her from getting a place of her own. Mom has attempted to get relief with the LiHeap program but has misplaced SSN cards for the children due to being homeless, which are required for the application. She has gotten it down to $538, but with having to pay for her storage unit that houses the family’s belongings and trying to pay down her car payment that her ex-husband had said he would pay for child support payments but has failed to do so for the past 3 months, it has been an increasing struggle. Mom is hoping to reunite with all her children in a home of their own, but can’t due to the evergy and car payment bills having a negative effect on her credit.

High Urgency Need
***Update*** Utilities for this family have been disconnected. Some payments have been made however, a $2,000 balance remains to reconnect service. A mother with two kids is in need of assistance with utilities asap. The family was abandoned by the husband/father and is now at risk for service disconnection. The mother works hard but has been struggling to stay on top of things since being abandoned by her husband. She's been trying to borrow money from family and friends but time is running out. She is afraid that losing electricity will put the family at risk and that her children could possibly be taken from her. Any Assistance for this family would be greatly appreciated. Mom received a shut-off notice on 5/23/22 for $3,265.24

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!

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.

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!

We previously helped this family with light bill from a CarePortal Request (53051) - a single mom of an 8 year-old girl with severe anxiety and seizures, and a 6 year old boy with a variety of medical issues leading to immobility, obesity and developmental delays. Mom works literally around the clock to provide all of the extra care they need, on top of having her own medical issues she is trying to address for the first time in years. Since the original request, we have been getting to know the family and providing additional items as needed. Mom is very sweet, thankful and responsible and it has been a joy to support them. She never wants to ask for help but recently shared that bathing her son at his size is very difficult and taxing for her, and that having a special showered and chair would be a huge help and relieve a lot of the stress around caring for her high-needs son. Additionally, their AC went out over the Summer so we are looking for funding for a window unit that was provided to them. Thank you for any help you can provide!

The mother on this case has completed all services and is close to reunification with her son. The mother utilizing a car that her father provided her to assist with reunification but he is now wanting it back leaving this mother without proper transportation. The mother has a Jeep Grand Cherokee that has been sitting for a year. She has put in a new battery, alternator, starter, serpentine belt tensioner pulley and harmonic balancer. She changed all the spark plugs, put on new coil packs, new head gaskets and timing chain. She has put on a new cherry bomb straight pipe muffler, changed out 2 or 3 sensors. The drivers side inside door panel wont stay on and the cv boots and knuckles are bad on the front. The four wheel drive is in 2 wheel bc the joint and shaft busted and were removed. The shaft is in the back. the right tire is flat too. The mother makes about 1000 a month and is needing help with her car to make sure she is able to take her son to school, school activities and to his regular doctors appointments. The mother has tried everything she can to get the car working again but needs help to figure out what is wrong with it or to find a car she can afford on her own. UPDATE: Our team from New Life CityChurch helped assess the vehicle and have determined that the necessary repairs exceed the value of the vehicle. We found a 2014 Chevy Cruze with 66k miles worth about $6k-$8k available for purchase for only $3,000. We have $1,000 of funding from the original request (63649, We are trying to raise the other $2,000 to take advantage of this great opportunity to the purchase the Chevy for this mom so she can finally have her own reliable transportation for her and her son. Anything helps! Please email care@newlifekc.org with questions. Thank you wonderful CarePortal community!
