Normal Request
Hello I am needing a car seat for a grandma who takes care of her grandchild part of the time while the mother works. This will help out the whole family because the grandmother does not have the resources to get a car seat but needs one to take care of the grandchild. The grandchild is 7 months old.

Normal Request
I have a 15 year old foster child on my caseload who currently has braces but has been unable to get the brackets replaced and be seen by the orthodontist as her step-mother has not been financially able to make the monthly payment. The 15 year old's braces were put on in 2020 when she was residing with her biological father and step-mother. Since coming into care with three of her siblings (there are 5 kids total- one is not in care), the step-mother has not been able to pay the monthly bill due to other priorities (rent, utilities, food, gas, after school programs, sports, etc). The step-mother is employed full time but still does not have the finances to get caught up on the 15 year old's braces. Assistance for the braces is greatly needed as the 15 year old's is starting to struggle with the lack of services required to maintain her braces. I do have the billing from the orthodontist office for verification of pricing. To get the plan re-open, the cost will be $500. To pay off the total amount for the braces and receive current maintenance for the braces is $2300.00

This will be the first step to helping mom get stable with her newborn baby because this will allow her to have reliable transportation to work, daycare, and appointments.

Normal Request
An expecting mother of two is in need of a Queen box spring. The mother has been unable to work due to her pregnancy and is not able to afford a box spring on her own. She is worried that after she gives birth, she will have difficulty get up and down from the mattress on the floor. Having a box spring would provide this mother and her two children that sleep with her a safe place to sleep and less complications once she gives birth.

We have a single mom of 3 kiddos in need of assistance with formula for her baby. Mom has applied for food assistance but the process to be approved will take several weeks. The baby needs a large container of Enfamil, regular (yellow container). A walmart gift card would work as well if the actual item can't be donated. Thank you!

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.

This request is to help a single teen mom to raise the remaining balance to get her own vehicle. She has saved the majority of the money but is needing some help with the remaining cost. This new to her car would be incredibly helpful for her independence. She will be using the money to purchase her vehicle. This vehicle would be used to transport the youth and her daughter to and from appointments, daycare, work, and give them the freedom to go from place to place without needing to depend on others or the public transportation system.

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.

Single mom of four is working hard to provide for her family. Last week she took temporary custody of her deceased sibling’s teenage children. She is without transportation and has to Uber to work. A church partner has a minivan for sale that would greatly benefit this hard working mom! The cost of the van is $1500 but a donation of $2000 would cover taxes, titling, and initial insurance cost.

***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
