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.

A single mother of four is needing some assistance to help children. She is not working at this time due to the cost of daycare and has three children that are not yet in school and one being an infant. She has utilized her older car seat from her other children for the infant, but she is asking for assistance with a newer car seat that will transition as the child ages and the baby is currently about 4 1/2 months old but bigger than the average child at that age. In the request the toddler/convertible car seat was chosen as mom would like one that transitions but want to again point out that kiddo is still an infant so chose the most accurate for description purposes. She also would like to get a pack 'n play for her baby with a fitted sheet. She does not want a crib and has specifically asked for a pack 'n play only. In addition to that, the mom could also use some help with clothing for all of the children. There is a boy who is 6 years old and would wear size 7 or 8, medium, two girls ages 3 and 4 and similar in size so sizes 4 and 5 would be fine for both. The 4 1/2 month could benefit from clothing sizes 6 months and above. All of this will help keep the kiddos safe, warm, and ready for the ever-changing weather and help alleviate some of the financial stress on the mom. Thanks!
We can help with the pack n play and crib sheet. If mom has transportation, she can visit our church's Impact Center and pick out clothes for her kiddos. She just needs to make an appointment. If she doesn't have transportation, we may be able to pick up clothing for her.

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.

This family of single dad and child have had a difficult financial situation recently and currently have their water turned off. Dad didn't want to ask for help but said, "I really wish we could have the water on so we could have a 10th birthday party for her [my daughter] this week". He's reached out to multiple non-profits for helps but has not had any luck.
Paying their water bill would help this child have a birthday party next week as well as get the family's normal needs for hygiene and for cooking.

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.
