This family relies on a single income to support their family as the second parent in this home is unable to work because she must care for their medically complex child. The family recently lost their income and are struggling to meet their basic needs. Please assist the family with a gift card to Walmart or Aldi for food.
Parents of two surviving children who recently lost their oldest son over the summer is in need of help with rent. Between funeral expenses, and moving expenses, family has gotten behind. Both parents work but their finances are tight. Any help with their rent would allow them to keep their home and focus on healing over their child's death.
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!

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.

Daughter has very demanding mental health needs which has caused Dad to lose two jobs this year. Daughter needs a long term residential program but it is not covered by Mom's insurance. It would be covered by Dad's COBRA insurance but they cannot afford to pay for the COBRA and everything thing else that needs to be paid for. Daughter is currently at a short term facility, but the staff believes she needs a long term treatment facility. Mom works and Dad is looking for employment. Their immediate financial need is the electricity bill with Evergy. It is $1600 and they have a notice of termination for 09/09/2023. The family is doing everything that they can to get the daughter help, they have just hit a hard time. The total bill is a lot of money, but any assistance would go a long way in helping the family get daughter help and the family closer to financial stability.
