A 17-year-old girl, eldest of her family, expressed feeling frustrated because her car needs repair. At 17, there are a lot of things she is buying for her senior year that she needs money for (college applications, basketball shoes, fees on her school account, senior pictures, etc) but without a car she is hardly able to work as she has no way to get there. She lives in a single parent household with four siblings and helps mom with running errands and taking kids to and from school. This young woman is a A+ student and is very involved in her community.
She said it would be a little over $250 to fix her car but any assistance would help tremendously.

Our food pantry on site is in desperate need of a refrigerator. Our current refrigerator has no shelving and leaks water which is not only limiting the amount of food we can offer but is making our pantry an unsafe space. We serve over 100 families a week from our pantry and use it to run our after-school program so without the ability to have fresh produce or any refrigerated items, we will not be able to provide adequate food for our families who are in great need.
The item can be dropped off between 10-3pm Monday-Thursdays.

Single mom pregnant with her first child is needing help with paying past due rent in the amount of $1211.00. This client was working but lost her job due to having to take off from work for doctor appointments because of pregnancy complications. She was also hurt on the job due to an accident that happened that was not her fault and is currently in litigation for that. She has already been to several organizations in the Kansas City area for help, but each one is either out of funding at this time, not accepting applications at this time or are overwhelmed with applications and are not taking any more at this time. The client has been looking for another job and is hopeful she will start work soon. In the meantime, the client has just been approved for unemployment and receives a monthly check of $796.00 for blind disability (She's legally blind in one eye) that she can use to pay future rent until she starts work. Because of the amount of the request, I have broken it into 2 payments of 605.00 in hopes that some churches would like to partner together to meet this need. This will help the client from being served an eviction notice keeping her from homelessness as she prepares for the arrival of her baby in a few months.

ANY AMOUNT OF ASSISTANCE WOULD HELP THIS FAMILY! The family's leasing agency has filed in court for eviction and the family will be evicted if the fees are not paid. Parent is a single mother of a 12 year old son. Last year, the son was struggling in school with behavioral and mental health challenges that led to mom pulling him out of school to homeschool him to give him extra care and attention. Mom decided to resign from her main job to be home with her son and go full time with her loan signing business which was doing well at the time, but quickly fell into a lull. Mom is continuing this loan signing business and currently looking for part-time work, but is currently behind on nearly all of her bills. The family's primary concern is rent. Mom has been searching for rental assistance but has not had luck. She is looking for support to help get her back on track while looking for another source of income. The family will be able to support themselves moving forward, but have fallen so far behind on bills that they aren't able to catch up.

disabled Mother of 4 children with high behavioral needs is in IMMEDIATE need of rental assistance. Mother works from home and is heavily involved in the community but through a mix of needing to take time off for her kids' appointments and her car needing repair (which made her give up her side job of doing deliveries until it could be repaired), she got behind on her rent payments. Furthermore, her apartment routinely stacks late fees onto her balance, so she is further stretched. She has paid off $1300 of the amount but was informed today that she has 72 hours (11/10/2023) to pay off the remaining balance or she will be evicted.
If this amount can be paid off, not only will this secure housing for a family of five, it will allow her children to stay and receive mental health care). If balance can be paid off, mom will also not have to worry about late fees. and can begin saving her money for future emergencies, as opposed to constantly playing catch up.

We have a kinship placement that needs emergency help as they are going to be evicted from their home. They have court this morning and are trying to get a continuance. The four children ages 8-2 are with their grandmother and papa. They have had a circumstances that have affected them as her mother in law passed away. Before her mother in law passed away the SAHFR program was supposed to help with the water and one month rent. That program ended up running out of funds. CD is also trying to find away to get them help with the water bill to turn their water back on but they need assistance with this rent to avoid being without a home. We do not want anything to jeopardize this placement and are trying to keep the kids together. The rent is 650 that is due. CD is looking for other resources to try and help with the water bill. If they could get help with the rent it will keep them from being without a home and the children being separated as they have to have a home.
