I hope this message finds you well. I am writing on behalf of a dedicated foster family who has generously opened their home to a teenage boy under their care. In their admirable commitment to providing a safe and nurturing environment, the foster family has also taken in all four of the teenager's siblings and has children of their own.
The foster family has a hectic schedule in caring for seven children in total. We have encountered a unique transportation challenge for this teenage boy. He currently attends an alternative school that does not have the means to provide transportation services. As a result, the foster family is responsible for ensuring he can get to and from school daily. Considering the circumstances, we are reaching out to request support in acquiring an electric scooter for the teenage boy. Having access to an electric scooter would greatly ease the burden on the foster family and enable the teenager to attend school consistently and punctually. This, in turn, will significantly contribute to his educational progress and overall well-being.
We understand the importance of ensuring the teenage boy has a reliable means of transportation to continue his education. Your assistance in this matter would make a significant difference in his life and provide vital support to the foster family. We are deeply grateful for your consideration of this request, and we look forward to your response.
Thank you for your continued dedication to the well-being
An adoptive resource is trying to help provide a child in foster care braces that the child needs. Braces are not covered under insurance and what the child needs is estimated at $6,000. Any financial assistance would be greatly appreciated to help the family.
Children have never attended public school and are struggling to keep up. KVC is in the process of getting children help through school as well, but the children have been making great progress with their current tutor. Placement is currently paying out of pocket for children to attend tutoring, but placement is very low income, so this is difficult to upkeep.

Hello, I am an Intensive in-home specialist with Cornerstones of Care, and I am currently working with a young pregnant mother (age 23) and her four young children (ages 4, 3, 2, 1 and unborn child). The family is in need of a pack-n-play for the baby who may be here in the next couple of weeks. Helping family meet this need will ensure that baby has a safe space to sleep and help family practice safe sleep habits. In addition, family could use two baby gates to help keep children out of the kitchen and bathroom. As the children are very young and mobile and like to climb on things. Mother has shared that the two young's children often climb into bathtub and turn on water. This could be very dangerous, as children could unintentionally slip and hurt themselves and or turn on hot water and get burn. A baby gate will help keep children out of the restroom. Lastly, mom has asked, if possible, to get a baby tub for the new baby. She shares that, this is one of the last items she needs for baby and would appreciate the help as her financial situation does not allow her to buy this items.
The mother does work however, does not currently have the financial means to buy these items.
Any help is very much appreciated.
Thank you for taking the time to read the request and for all that you do.

Hello! We are seeking assistance with rent assistance for a single mom of two boys. Mom has been engaged with KVC for quiet some time but has run into a barrier with her housing.

Mother is putting her entire disability check towards the rent due but still needs help. Any assistance offered is greatly appreciated! This will directly impact our ability to reintegrate the child.
There is a young boy who is needing school uniforms that fit him and he feels comfortable in. This young boy has grown exponentially since last year when his single parent bought him new uniforms.

The parent has provided a link for the clothing items.

I am hoping that I can find someone that wants to help a recently single mom who has found the courage to leave an abusive partner and start over with five children. Children age in the range of 4 to 13 and three have special needs. This mom has worked hard to secure a duplex for the next two years and works for the school district so she can be home with the kids when not in school. I hope whoever receives this request knows how deserving this precious family really is. Through all the troubles this family has endured through faith and family. They have always welcomed everyone with smiles and laughter. I am hoping to help them by getting twin bunk beds with plastic protectors and extra mattress pads.

This family of 7 is needing help to pay for rent for this month. The uncle has become the relative placement of his 14 year old niece last month. The uncle has been looking for a more stable job to support his family and he is needing help to cover part of their rent ($692.15). They are also asking for rug for their living room. The flooring is tile and they want a rug for the children to be able to play with their toys on instead of the cold floor. They aren't asking for a particular size, but a 4' x 4' or 5' x 5' would be the size they need. This family will appreciate any and all help they are able to get.

This mother had her child placed out of her home but has since done everything that she needed to do to regain placement. The mother has been working hard on her mental health and has been able to identify a few things that would help her get her selfcare in and her child to have his needs meet as well. The winter months are going to be rough on her due to her not getting all the hours she was promised at her job. She also lost a lot of money when she was out on medical leave for a broken foot. She could use a planner to stay organized, a mini trampoline to burn energy and a hot wheels track to keep her son occupied in positive activities. Thank you!

The family in need currently has 4 children placed. Each child has been placed in the home for over a year. This family is willing to accept two additional children. One of which is a sibling to one of the children already in the home. Another is a 15 y/o child who was abandoned by her mother. She's eager to attend school as she's been homeschooled since kindergarten. In order for the child to attend school she has to reside in a home/district. This placement provider welcomes both children with open arms but is unable to provide a living space until additional bedding is in place. Both children need placement and stability ASAP; this home would be a great fit for each of the children. Please consider. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you! Updated on September 07, 2023 by an Agency Worker The placement provider sent her most recent utility bill from Evergy. The total of the bill as of 9/6/2023 is a grand total of $1,185.68. However, any amount shared would be appreciated. Thank you!

There is a family who is facing shut off of their utilities and risk falling behind on their mortgage payment due to owing back money on their past bills on their utilities. They were trying to supply diapers and food for their kids without having them realize the situation they were in. They did not want especially their eldest child to see they were struggling and wanted to have some normalcy in the home. The breadwinner of the family, the father, lost his job at Watersee, and he was laid off due to a bankruptcy and he was left to figure things out for the sake of his kids. With the kids going back to school, they had to get some help from their parents to buy some supplies for the kids. The father had an interview yesterday for a new job, and he has a few lined up this week that he is hoping he can get so he can start working as soon as possible. He worries he will not get a paycheck in time to pay before they get cut off and then he will have fees to turn them back on that he cannot afford. He wants so hard to provide for his family and even felt shameful asking for help, but he said it has gotten to a point where he had nowhere else to turn to. These parents are working tirelessly to make ends meet for their children they are hoping to start trial home visits soon and stress the importance of having the basics for their kids. This family risks having their utilities shut off and does not want his kids to see his mom and dad struggling. Updated on September 08, 2023 by an Agency Worker Please call biological father at(###) ###-#### for specifics on paying utilities.

We are asking for help with rent to stabilize a family to prevent two children from coming into care. Mom works a full time job and is helping her two older children who are in college. Mom also has two younger children that are in the home that she provides care to. Last month, DCF redirected the SSID payments for the teenager that was taken into care. This caused mom to have to work overtime to try to make sure she was able to make rent. However, she has voiced that despite taking the max amount of shifts and working another part time job, she is unable to make her rent for this month and will become homeless with the two other children. Mom does have a plan moving forward but is struggling to make up for the last minute loss of the SSID payments. We are asking for any help we can to either fully cover, or go towards so we can make sure we prevent mom and the two younger children going homeless.
