I have a hard working single mother of 7 children in our district working to get her car tags for her vehicle so she can get her kids to school and also get herself to work. She is working and trying her hardest to meet the needs of children and cover housing and expenses. She has been able to come up with some but needs around $300 to cover the rest. Thank you for considering partnering with this family to help them make ends meet.

Mother and family have recently moved to a new home. Mother is not currently working and has no money to buy a bed a twin bed and mattress for her 5 year old. Mother is also not able to buy a couch for her 15-year-old because of his disability he prefers to sleep on a couch. Family is also struggling to purchase a dinning room table and a microwave.

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
We have a used electric scooter we are willing to donate. However, we are not sure on its battery range or how far the boy needs to travel. If someone wants to connect with us so that he could test it and see if it will work, please let us know. Thanks! Suzie
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.
A kinship provider is in need of an Uber gift card as she has been responsible for providing transportation for the foster youth and the youth's baby. The youth and baby go to a school in Kansas City, MO because they have a daycare program in the school for students who are parents. Options for teen students are very limited on the KS side so this has been the best option even though the school is 17 miles away from the home. The provider has either been taking both youth to school or ordering and Uber each day since school has started two weeks ago in order to make sure the youth is attending classes so she can graduate on time this year. The school in Missouri is working to get a ride share program set up for the youth but at this time, the family is responsible for transportation despite having limited availability as her work schedule is very inflexible. We would like to provide financial support to her through an Uber gift card as she has put so much effort into making sure the youth attends school and gets her degree which can be especially difficult as a teen parent. We would be very grateful for any amount of help in the form of gift cards.

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.

Single mother with four kids ages 4 months to 7 years old. This family just moved back into Kansas from a infested Missouri home. This family's current sofa and love seat are in bad condition as they were infested with insects at their former home. The mother is grateful to be out of the former living conditions and is needing furniture that she and her children can utilize to be together in Livingroom and kitchen. This single mother is in need of living room seating and a rectangle kitchen table with chairs. Their kitchen is small though a rectangle table will work great as it can sit against the window. The children like sitting together at the table for meals. Currently the family has a abused sofa and love seat in the living room. Donor could provide a sectional or a love seat/sofa . Thank you for considering and if any questions feel free to reach out.
Foster family in need of financial assistance. The family was financially struggling before taking a relative foster child into care. The family graciously accepted the child into their home, creating a more significant financial burden. This placement forfeited some work hours to care for the child, placing them even further behind on some of their utilities. The family is working towards obtaining financial education and budgeting to help get them on the right track, but some financial assistance to help keep their utilities on would help to preserve this kinship family foster home. Could you possibly help provide some cash assistance directly to a utility company? Thank you for your consideration.
This family could use 2 twin beds. In this family there are 6 children: 3 boys ages 16, 14, 12, and 3 girls ages 17, 12, and 11. The family came to our attention again when the eldest boy was admitted to psych. The mother would not allow Children's Division in the home and brought the children to the office for Children's Division to assure safety. Children's Division noticed in the history that none of the previous workers have been in the home. The family has mental health services, and that case worker has also never been in the home. After the eldest boy disclosed some concerns of the household conditions, Children's Division pressed the mother as to why she did not want Children's Division in the home and she said, "I know what will happen". When the family lived in CA the children were placed into state's custody and the mother was afraid that the same thing would happen in MO. Children's Division was able to get the mother to allow us in the home and it was determined that the children are living in unsanitary conditions. Since Children's Division initial contact with the family, they have started to clean the home, but they are in need of disposing mattresses. The eldest boy has his own room but the other 5 are sharing a small bedroom and sleeping on mattresses on the floor. The family had bed frames but is in need of mattresses (2 twin mattresses).
A grandmother is the primary caretaker of her three grandsons, one of whom is already adopted and the other two are in the process of being adopted. In June of 2023, the family lost their home to a fire and were unable to save any personal items. They have recently found housing and have some furniture, but they are needing more. The family is needing a full size mattress and bed frame for the grandmother, 3 dressers for each of the boys, a tv for the living room, and a washer and dryer.

Hello there, we just placed a fifteen-year-old child with her great grandmother. The great grandmother is on a fixed income and is in need of a twin mattress and box spring for the child that we placed with her today. The great grandmother is also caring for another grandchild that she has adopted.
The grandmother has had the child that we placed with her today since she was a baby. We are hoping that someone could possibly donate this item and deliver it to her home. She lives on the 5th floor at an apartment building, and it would be difficult for her financially as well as physically to get. Thank you so much for your consideration.
