I am working with a family that has taken in children from other family members as well as having their own children in the home. They are working with DCCCA to ensure the safety of all the children and are utilizing all possible resources to provide the appropriate care for their family. Currently they are behind on their BPU bill due to increases from using the A/C so much and are unable to pay $300 of the balance due. Any amount donated would be appreciated as they are trying to manage from month to month with somewhat fixed incomes. They receive no support from the parents of the other children. Thank you for considering this request and for all your support in our community!

A teen is in need of a bed in at her cousins place of residence, where she is now currently staying. She is expecting a child soon, and we would like for her and baby to have a comfortable area to sleep. She has recently left a shelter and did not have a place to stay for months before the shelter, that is why she does not have furniture already.

I have a child who is here from Honduras, he was brought here illegally by his father several years ago; his mother remained in Honduras at the time. Dad has since been deported back to Honduras but mom has legally made her way to the United States through Immigrations, and working to establish herself here in our community in order to reunify with her son. She was recently able to obtain her own apartment, and lives there with her 10-year-old daughter, who is my child (in care)'s half-sister. Mom is doing well to establish herself but could use some help furnishing her apartment. She needs furniture and dishes, to include a couch or two, maybe a recliner or some sort of living room chair, dining room/ kitchen table and chairs, a dresser, dishes for the kitchen (plates, cups, cooking dishes, etc). Anything you can think of that that would help this mother furnish her apartment would be greatly appreciated! Mom currently shares a bed with her daughter, so we would also greatly appreciate a twin bed and frame if possible. Anything at all that could help, we would be very grateful in helping this mom to get herself established in KC!

We've got a high schooler who is in foster care for the second time. She is really hoping to be able to join a competitive volleyball league but cannot afford it. $900 is the whole amount needed although any amount would help. This would help her mentally- having an output to go workout/ play. Playing competitive could perhaps make her grow more in the sport and possibly play for college.

I am working with a family of 5 children (3 boys and 2 girls) and a single mom. They have made great strides during our case and have gone from being homeless to having a home and a stable family situation. The family would greatly benefit from having a used washer/dryer set. The mother does not expect a new set and is happy to have anything that works! They have a setup for this in their home but are still going to the laundromat, which is difficult with 6 peoples' clothing and 3 small children who love to run around. :) With the mother's income, it is hard for her to afford these items. I have been blessed to work with this family and they are so close to being able to close their case and continue moving forward with all the skills they have learned. Thank you for considering this request and for all your support in our community!

A family is in need of assistance paying their rent. Mom is a single parent who is paying off medical bills from a recent hospital stay and has little money left over to make a payment on her rent bill. The rent total is $1,020.60 but Mom says any small amount would help and would be greatly appreciated. This request, $510.30, is for half of the rent amount.

A foster mom had to pay out of pocket for child care for her foster daughter - The problem is there weren’t any licensed facilities available for 7 weeks which is why she had to pay out of pocket. Children’s Division will not reimburse for this. I'd hate to see our foster mom lose so much money due to a shortage of daycare facilities. It's not a utility bill, but it is financial assistance. Any help for this foster mom would be greatly appreciated.

I am working with a family and one parent is struggling with addiction. We have put services in place and are working with the court. Due to missing work hours to take care of these matters, the family is unable to make rent for the month of August. They are being very proactive and seeking help as well as cooperating with service in every way. The other parent who has been staying at home with the two young children is now looking for work to assist with costs in the future. We would like to help the family take care of their rent for the month so that they are able to focus on the work they are doing to get stronger. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you for all your support and prayers for the family would be appreciated as well. Updated on July 27, 2022 by an Agency Worker
This needs to be updated to $1,100. I didn't realize that the parents have to pay rent and utilities in one payment. Thanks!
