Help Preserve a Kinship Placement

Critical Request
A relative placement of a 5 month old girl has had her electricity disconnected and needs assistance to help turn it back on. Her minimum payment is $5.04, there is a $30.00 reconnect fee, and $60.00 to keep her from getting disconnected again for one month. KVC has recently assisted her in obtaining WIC to assist with formula which will help her to be able to pay her bills to maintain placement. Any assistance is much appreciated.

I am working with a single mother and child who are on the path to recovery. The mom is a army veteran and has suffered severe trauma from her deployments. She was without her daughter for some time but they have worked hard to be reunited. Her daughter is also diagnosed with very serious and specific mental health concerns that require a counselor with very specific skills. We were able to find this counselor but it requires a 2 hour drive (both ways) each week and the mother is on disability through the military so has a limited income. We would like to be able to provide her with a $200 gas card to help her get back and forth without causing a huge strain to her budget due to current gas prices. Any amount would be helpful and very much appreciated! Thank you for considering this request and for all you do in our community to strength our families and support workers like me!

Mother has a two year child who has severe special needs; he recently had G Tube Insertion procedure so he can eat more efficiently. He has trouble maintaining necessary weight so he is involved in multiple clinics at Children's Mercy Hospital and usually has two or more appts per week at CMH. He recently was accepted into Ability KC Pre School which means he will go to Ability KC Pre School each weekday for Occupational and Physical Therapy and care each day. He has medical diagnoses of Periventricular Leukomalacia, Brain Disease- death or damage or softening of the white matter the inner part of the brain which transmits information.... and Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia., Chronic Lung Disease of Premature Babies. The parents are responsible for getting the child to Ability KC Pre School each day. The Ability KC Pre School is a prestigious program that kids have to qualify for based on their medical needs and disabilities. The automobile that the mother has access to at this time does not belong to her and it is not running well. Mother is afraid that the car will break down soon, and she has no control over the owner of the car who is prone to leave the home and not return so she can take her son to appointments.

Help Preserve a Kinship Placement

Normal Request
This child has recently finally found a wonderful placement to live with who adores her and wants the best for her. This placement wants to include the child in everything that they do as a family. The whole kinship family had purchased season passes to Worlds of Fun before the child came to live with them. The family doesn’t want to leave her behind when they use their passes, but they can’t afford to purchase a season pass for her. The family is asking for assistance to purchase a season pass for the child who is new to their household so that they can all go and enjoy Worlds of Fun together.

I am currently working with a teen that has started a lot of different services for mental and medical health. With multiple appointments and gas prices, there as been an increase in the cost of travel for the mother that she was not expecting with her income. I am asking for a donation (of any amount) to go toward a gas card to help the family afford the gas for transportation to and from these multiple weekly appointments. Thank you for considering this request and for all your support in our community. I am amazed as the support our cases receive through CarePortal and cannot thank all of you enough for stepping up to help us work with families to achieve their goals!

Platte county has an infant in foster care who has been placed with their grandmother. The Grandmother is working to get licensed as a relative provider so she can continue to have the infant in her home. Grandma does not currently have car insurance and this is needed for licensure. Grandma is unable to get this started due to financial barriers. If she is unable to get car insurance, she may not be able to continue as placement for her grandchild. She states that if the first two months are covered, than she will be able to keep it going. She has called around and the amount needed for the first two months of coverage is $235.00.

If she calls(###) ###-#### and tells them she was referred by Care Portal, they can likely set her up for groceries. Additionally, SPEAC is having a drive-thru event on Sat May 21 from 9-11am at the Parkville Presbyterian Church 819 Main St (lower level off 9 highway).

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 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!
