Help Make a Kinship Placement
2
High Urgency Request
A single aunt is willing and able to be placement to her 4 year old and 5 month old nieces after her mother gave notice on being placement due to some health issues, however she is short a bed for the 4 year old. She does have 3 of her own children living in the home. In order to make the placement work temporarily, she will be having her 4 year old niece sleep in her 9 year old daughter's bed and her 9 year old will be sleeping in her room. Placement is looking for a twin size bunk bed for the 4 year old and the 9 year old as the 4 year old is tall for her age and may not fit into a toddler size bed and the 9 year old will not fit into a toddler size bed.

Normal Need
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!

This family has multiple people in the household as they came together to take care of these 5 children who came into care. These 5 children's grandmother, lives with her mother and father and her other daughter who has two kids. We all joined together to make this placement work, so these children did not have to be separated. The grandmother does a lot for these children multiple doctor appointments and taking care of an infant with medical needs. The children are 10,7,4,2 and 4 months old. This family is in desperate need of a dryer if we could find one as their dryer quit working and going to the laundry mat is very expensive. They also need some help with a highchair big enough for the 2-year-old as he does need it. If they could get this help it would benefit the placement and the children.

He is wanting one that is more comfortable like a bed as well. Getting this futon will allow for him to not only get a good night's rest, but it will also allow for him to socialize with his friends.

A mother is very close to reunifying with her children; she just needs one more bed! She would like a daybed or a bed that works as both a couch and a bed since she will be sleeping in the living room to make space for her children. She would also like a Ring doorbell as a safety precaution to ensure the perpetrator of the children's abuse does not come to the home and to help the children feel more safe.

A child in our care currently resides with his grandmother. The grandmother’s home is becoming unsafe to live and she needs to move as soon as possible. She found a place that accepts her section 8 voucher but she needs the deposit to help her secure it. Her deposit is $500 but I am only asking for $200 or however much you are able to give. This child loves being with his grandmother. Children’s Division doesn’t not want to separate the two because of the unsafe living environment. I am very appreciative of whatever is donated.

A single mother in the KCK area needs assistance with home maintenance. The family's front door is too small for their door frame, so the front door cannot be shut or locked. The wind blows the door open and snow gets into the living room. A child also sleeps in the living room, and the family is worried about an intruder entering the home through this front door at night. The family is also asking for assistance with fixing or replacing a few overhead light fixtures in the home.
