m, 14 yr old, only has a pair of slides for shoes that she is wearing with socks in this cold weather. She also has no winter coat and is only wearing a light jacket in this cold cold weather. Her shoes size 8 and a winter coat size 2XL. She does not have a permanent placement at this time.
S is raising her three grandchildren N (F, 11), D (M, 4), and S (F, 3). S owns a small catering business to help provide for the children. Recently right before Thanksgiving her car caught fire and was destroyed. Thankfully no one was harmed but liability insurance does not cover this type of total so she is left without a vehicle.
Right now S is riding the bus to make small catering order deliveries, but this is not going to work long-term. S has a neighbor who is willing to sell her a used car for $2,500, but she would also accept anything that was donated.
Having a car will allow S to continue to bring money in and provide for her three grandchildren, while also being able to get them to school and all necessary appointments. With the weather about to get cold and bad, S fears that she will not be able to continue her catering business without a car because she can only take small orders on the bus due to the logistics of storing/transporting the food on and off each bus/route change.
Mom and her three boys, ages 14, 12, and 1-year-old are working with our amazing Family Preservation Program. Unfortunately, someone broke into their home and smashed a window and glass on their door. We want this family to feel safe and warm. Mom is doing the best she can and does not have the extra funds to fix the glass. Can someone either please donate their skills and replace the glass in the door and window or donate the finances to have a handyman complete this? We are so grateful for our amazing CarePortal Churches and how much you care about families in our community. Thank you for anything that you can do in order to help this family.
DCCCA is hosting a Christmas Party Dec 7th for all of our foster families and families receiving services from our Family Preservation program. We know the holidays can be a difficult time for families in our services so we try to go above and beyond to plan a special evening for them that encourages family bonding while embracing the holiday spirit. DCCCA is providing a meal for everyone in attendance but we are in need of a donor that can help us purchase decorations, supplies and dessert for the party. Any assistance for this would be greatly appreciated!
Family Preservation is currently serving a single mother of two children who are homeless and living in a hotel on Broadway. The mother has had a difficult time finding appropriate housing because her 1 year old is medically fragile and the home must be extremely sanitized for her safety. This child was born deaf and blind and has numerous medical appointments that has made it impossible for mom to keep a consistent job that will accommodate her families needs. DCCCA is helping mom get disability for her daughter to gain financial stability. DCCCA has also helped mom find an appropriate apartment and has paid the application costs. Mom will be receiving section 8 to cover rent but needs assistance with the move in costs. If a church would also be willing to provide on going relational support and encouragement to this family that would be a major blessing as she does not have a strong support system besides her case team at DCCCA. Please help us support this mom and thank you for taking the time to read this post.
The Wichita Office would like to be able to give children and teens a $20 gift card to Walmart or another store for Christmas. The staff believes that the children/teens would love to be able to pick out something for themselves for Christmas. Can you please help us be able to give them a gift for Christmas? Thank you for anything that you can do. We appreciate all of our CarePortal Churches and what a huge impact you make on our staff and foster children/families. You are amazing!

DCCCA is serving a single mother of 6 children. She recently separated from her husband who was the financial provider of the household but is working to establish everything on her own. She has started the process of vocational rehab with DCF to help her gain employment but has not yet started. She has been searching for employment for the last 2 months but has not had luck and because of this she is behind on her rent. She has just notified her case manager that the family will be evicted tomorrow if their balance is not paid. Mom only has $100. DCCCA cannot cover the entire amount owed and is hoping to collaborate with churches that would be willing to help us prevent this family from being evicted from their new home and being separated. Please do not feel obligated to contribute the entire amount, any help would be a blessing.
When little children come into care, they almost always do not have any diapers with them and they need to be changed. We like to have diapers in the office so we can take care of one of the most essential needs for the baby, to be changed and cleaned. Children's skin is so sensitive and we want to take the very best care of them and give them everything that they need. Can you please help us get some much-needed diapers? Thank you for anything that you can help with. We are so grateful for your help.
The office is still in need of premature diaper size if anyone can please provide this, they would be so grateful.
Foster mom is caring for 9 kids total (some bio, some she's a kinship placement for). She is also taking care of her mother who recently had a stroke. This family's most recent home had a major mold issue, forcing them to move as well as get rid of many of their belongings. They could use help re-stocking home items, specifically kitchen gear, linens, bunkbed frames, and bedding.
Orchard's team can get the bedding for this family.
