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)

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.

Critical Request
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.

Three siblings have been significantly acting out after visits with parents and there are concerns for them hurting one another. With a 2-level home, foster parents are unable to see the children when they are in their room and need a baby monitor with video capability to ensure the children's safety while they are cooking dinner or are in other areas of the home. This need is urgent as the children have become very physically aggressive with one another and others in the household as well.

We are currently working with an 8 year old child who is diagnosed with several mental health concerns. She has hallucinations and struggles with feeling safe in any environment. The family is very caring and working with her to help her in every possible way. She also has mental health services and treatment. While working with the family, we were able to identify 3 tools they could use to help the child feel safer. Both parents are working but with normal expenses and extra expenses for the child, they are living paycheck to paycheck. I am asking for help to purchase these needed items. I've listed the items that can be purchased through Amazon by any donor or I will happily order these with any donations received. Thank you for considering this request and for all of your support for our families and workers!! Child needs a light switch for the hallway in her home. She is afraid of the dark and being alone. The family rents and cannot make any renovations so we found a light switch that links to the actual light and doesn't require wiring: ($19.99 and tax). Child needs a dimmable night light for her bedroom and bathroom so that she can control the amount of light in her room but have a reliable light during the night: ($17.99 and tax) Child needs a camera in her room to record her activity at night for her therapist and psychiatrist: ($29.99 and tax)

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

Critical Request
I have a student at my school whose family is being evicted from their apartment in 10 days. The 6th grader attends my school and is such a hard worker and a very sweet kiddo. There are two additional students in the family younger two are in elementary and early education in our district, ages 4 and 10. The mother is a single parent supporting the three children on her own. She is trained and worked as a nurse, but due to an injury has been unable to work for several months recently and they have fallen behind on rent. They owe two months rent and fees associated with the eviction process in the amount of $3387. The mother expressed they have no family in the area they can stay with and she is extremely worried about becoming homeless in the winter. She is working willingly with the school social worker to access community resources, but so far has been unsuccessful in finding emergency funding. Any contribution towards the total will hopefully help mom be able to negotiate with her apartment management and give her time to pursue other ways to help cover the cost. The oldest is in 6th grade and she is a good student and a basketball player. The family has been through a lot this past few months. The mom shared that she is very scared of being evicted in winter and not having a place to go when it is cold outside.

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.
