Normal Request
Hello, The Department for Children and Families would like to request 10 pack and plays to ensure that a child has a safe space to sleep. A pack and play can also help reduce SIDS. The agency would like to keep the pack and plays on hand to give to families ASAP, instead of waiting for a pack and play to come available. This would be for multiple families. Thank you for helping keep children safe.

High Urgency Request
Mother of four, T ( 15-year-old female), L (11-year-old female), R (14-year-old male), and M (12-year-old male) is supporting her family as a Certified Nursing Assistant on her own. There isn't any room in the budget for something to break down. But unfortunately, their car had some issues, and money needed to be spent to fix it. Mom had to get her car fixed so she could get to work and the children could get to school. Rent is past due for this month and this family really needs a hand. They are moving as soon as they are approved for a place that will cost less every month, but they need help this month until that can happen. Anything that you can help with would be a huge blessing for this family. Thank you so much for your generosity.

M (13-year-old female) was recently placed in a home with her older sister. They are happy to be together along with the other three children who are there. Foster Mom and Dad are doing the best they can but do not have any place to put M's clothing. If you have a new or gently used dresser that you can please donate to them, M will have a place to put her clothes. Thank you for any help that you can provide. You are amazing!

Z (13-year-old female) has moved in with her sister and her 4-year-old cousin. Z's sister is happy to have her but they could use a little bit of help getting a bed so everyone has a place to sleep. They live in a small apartment and getting a bunk bed would help with sleeping arrangements for the children and sister. New or gently used would be such a blessing. Thank you for anything that you can help with. We would be so grateful. Z's sister and her 4-year-old cousin will be sharing the bottom bunk so if it's possible to get a bunk bed that is full-sized on the bottom, that would give the two sharing it, a little more room.

DCCCA has been working with parents of a special needs child. The child is kindergarten age and there favorite thing to do is play and make a mess in the house! Both parents are working hard for their family but with all their current expenses they don't have the extra funds to buy a vacuum or carpet cleaner, both of which the desperately need to keep up with their child's messes. A donation of these items would help the family keep their home clean so the space is safe for their child to play. Any assistance would be extremely appreciated!

This 19-year old mom and her 10-month old daughter recently moved to Wichita due to having more employment opportunity. Unfortunately, mom does not have a bed of her own and currently does not have any funds to get one herself. The young mom has been sleeping on an air mattress temporarily but would greatly appreciate a bed (full OR queen size) for her to sleep on permanently if possible.

DCCCA has been working with a single mom of 4 get back on her feet after fleeing an abusive relationship. Fleeing this relationship resulted in mom losing her job, car, and house. Mom lost her job because her ex showed up at her work and caused a scene which ended with mom hitting him so he would let her go so she could run away. That same day she packed her kids and their things and left the state they were in to come to Kansas. Mom was charged with Battery for hitting him to get away which required her to take classes and pay a fine. Mom has completed all of the necessary classes and only has $345 left of the $3200 fine to pay off and she needs help. DCCCA is working to help mom get a job but she is being threatened with jail time if she does not pay off the rest of her fine as soon as possible. Any assistance for helping this mom get her fine payed off so she can start fresh with her kids would be the break and blessing mom desperately needs.

DCCCA has been working with a single mom to help her get back on her feet. She recently lost her job so DCCCA has stepped in to help her locate a new one and has been providing her resources in the meantime as well. Mom has an electrical bill that she is needing help paying, otherwise she will be getting a shut off notice from her electric company. DCCCA is helping with her other bills but if we could get extra assistance for this mom it would be a major blessing to her. She has had some interviews so we are hoping that she will have a job soon but in the meantime she is doing everything she can to stay afloat.
