High Urgency Need
Family recently moved away from their church friends and family to a new home that offers more space for our fostering journey. We hope to add a play set and outdoor things for kids to enjoy on the few acres we have now. We also hope to be able to extend support to foster families in the southeast ks area similar to what we were so blessed with. We have started an intervention program , the first in the area. We are so excited to help the community here but miss everyone we moved away from. (foster parent, 3 kids)

DCCCA is working with a mother and her three children who have recently lost their only mode of transportation. The mother is requesting a bicycle for her teenage son so he can run errands close to the home so she does not have to get her young children out in the cold and walk. The son is approximately 4.5 feet tall. If you have a bike you can donate or are able to donate the funds it would be a great blessing to this family!

This child is an 8 year old boy who struggles with social skills. He is currently really struggling at school with his friends and classmates because he is having a hard time with social cues. His grandmother, teacher and therapist are worried for this child because he is very social and loves acceptance from peers and others, but he is struggling with showing appreciation for his peers and is only wanting appreciation himself. This has been going on for a few months and he is now occasionally getting asked to leave the classroom, sit in the principals office and or even leave school because he has been causing disruptions in class with his peers so much so that he gets so worked up and begins crying and cant be calmed down. His grandmother is requesting help paying for a social skills program for this child. It is $40 for each session. I know his grandmother would be very appreciative of any aide, he is a great kid, very caring, kind and funny, he is just struggling with some social skills at this time. Thank you.

Working with a foster and adopt conference local to Kansas City families from all over are coming to be able to spend some quality time with other foster families, have some spiritual growth and learn from many speakers on adoption and fostering. Families are coming from as far away as Florida, and as close as Kentucky, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri. Some of these families are asking for assistance with Gas cards to help with travel expenses. I would love to be able to help donate gas cards to these families who are attending this powerful weekend conference.

Single mom of 3 children is in need of getting birth certificates for her children so they can enroll in a new school. This family has been homeless, and by staying at many different homes, she has lost a lot of important information. We have been helping her get her ID, SSN, and now birth certificates for her and her children. This transition for the kids has been tough and she believes them switching schools to where they are now will help them become more stable. This process is all part of her getting a job, housing, etc. We are wrapping around this mom to support her in this process!

Grandma has placement of three of her grandsons from Missouri foster care, ages 16, 13, and 12. A pipe in her front yard burst and needed to be replaced. She then was hit with another large bill in December when she needed to fill her propane tank to heat the house. Grandma is needing financial assistance to help with these unexpected bills. This would allow her to avoid going deeper into debt and ensure the family will have heat.

We would like to request assistance with a deserving family that we support. The family has a nine-year-old boy who struggles with ADHD and ODD who recently started taking medications that have caused him significant sudden weight gain. This family is poverty stricken, due to client’s mental health needs mom is unable to work as he is often asked to leave school. This family is working very hard to ensure that their son has the support he needs to be successful. Unfortunately due to some of his behavior client does struggle with negative peer interactions that lead to bullying and with his weight gain this has increased. For this reason the family is hoping to find a donor that will purchase client new clothing to help increase his confidence.

This father is a hard working parent , who has been given custody of his young child for safety reasons. The child is thriving and healing , the father has a full time job, and a vehicle that is no longer drivable ,the vehicle has engine or transmission problems that would cost more to repair than to just get another car. The father uses the vehicle to take his child to therapy , school and also to get to his employment site. We are hoping to raise 3,500.00 dollars so he can buy a working vehicle. Thank you so much. Updated on January 23, 2023 by an Agency Worker
We would also like to add that if someone has a dependable car they would like to donate to this family, please let us know. Your donation will greatly improve this family's situation, relieve a great deal of stress on this single father, and put dad and child on the road to success. Thank you for your consideration and all you do to make a difference in the lives of families! Updated on February 01, 2023 by an Agency Worker
This father and son are homeless and staying temporarily with family. Father was given custody of son by court in recent months and is needing transportation to take his son to and from school, appointments and work. This father who works full-time in a low-paying job would like to be able to find a different job that can better help him provide for his son. Not only will having a dependable vehicle help this father with getting a better paying job that will allow him to provide a home for his son; it will also ensure that father and son do not miss important appointments and aid in their future success.

Hello! I have two siblings who were placed in foster care last year in April due to parents' substance use and mental health concerns. The kids were placed with a family friend and they have been AMAZING in helping to take care of him and his sister while they are in foster care. One thing that the family has been struggling with was being able to afford to pay the kids' activity fees to make sure that they still are able to live like regular children and participate in their regular activities while the kids are in their care. The younger brother has been participating in soccer and is SO talented at it, and his older sister participates in theatre and theater camps. Anything would be so appreciated in helping this family out!
