This 14 year old boy has been in care for over two years. He bounced around a little, before finding stable placement with his siblings in March of 2021. He has an 8th grade field trip to Washington, DC coming up in April (with payment due by the end of the month). This youth is a great kid. Once he got into a stable and loving home, and was able to find the right dosage of medication, he has thrived. He does well in school, loves playing sports, and he has a very humble and kind personality. He would really like to go on this trip, and his foster family would really like for him to be able to join his classmates. They need some help to make this happen. The cost of the trip is $1,609, and that is a lot for the family to take on, especially since they have six other children in the home. So far, $500 has been donated toward this trip, and $1,109 remains. Any amount helps!

The family has a nine-year-old boy who struggles with ADHD and ODD who recently started taking medications that have caused him significant sudden weight gain. This family is poverty stricken, due to client’s mental health needs mom is unable to work as he is often asked to leave school. This family is working very hard to ensure that their son has the support he needs to be successful. Unfortunately due to some of his behavior client does struggle with negative peer interactions that lead to bullying and with his weight gain this has increased. For this reason the family is hoping to find a donor that will purchase client new clothing to help increase his confidence.

This father is a hard working parent , who has been given custody of his young child for safety reasons. The child is thriving and healing , the father has a full time job, and a vehicle that is no longer drivable ,the vehicle has engine or transmission problems that would cost more to repair than to just get another car. The father uses the vehicle to take his child to therapy , school and also to get to his employment site. We are hoping to raise 3,500.00 dollars so he can buy a working vehicle.
Thank you so much. Updated on January 23, 2023 by an Agency Worker We would also like to add that if someone has a dependable car they would like to donate to this family, please let us know. Your donation will greatly improve this family's situation, relieve a great deal of stress on this single father, and put dad and child on the road to success. Thank you for your consideration and all you do to make a difference in the lives of families! Updated on February 01, 2023 by an Agency Worker This father and son are homeless and staying temporarily with family. Father was given custody of son by court in recent months and is needing transportation to take his son to and from school, appointments and work. This father who works full-time in a low-paying job would like to be able to find a different job that can better help him provide for his son. Not only will having a dependable vehicle help this father with getting a better paying job that will allow him to provide a home for his son; it will also ensure that father and son do not miss important appointments and aid in their future success.
Hello! I have two siblings who were placed in foster care last year in April due to parents' substance use and mental health concerns. The kids were placed with a family friend and they have been AMAZING in helping to take care of him and his sister while they are in foster care. One thing that the family has been struggling with was being able to afford to pay the kids' activity fees to make sure that they still are able to live like regular children and participate in their regular activities while the kids are in their care. The younger brother has been participating in soccer and is SO talented at it, and his older sister participates in theatre and theater camps. Anything would be so appreciated in helping this family out!
KVC is requesting assistance housing an 18-year-old female and relative placement after a landlord failed to pay taxes on their property. This child and placement were evicted through no fault of their own when a bank foreclosed on the property without the landlord notifying the family. This child is attempting to set her life up for post-care and is working long hours in a different city. $1200 is requested but any amount will help.
Three siblings have been significantly acting out after visits with parents and there are concerns for them hurting one another. With a 2-level home, foster parents are unable to see the children when they are in their room and need a baby monitor with video capability to ensure the children's safety while they are cooking dinner or are in other areas of the home. This need is urgent as the children have become very physically aggressive with one another and others in the household as well.
We serve the family of a nine year old boy with autism and ADHD who is in need of some sensory equipment for a “quiet corner” his mother is trying to put together to assist him in learning skills to help him to regulate himself in a soothing manner. The cost of a lighted curtain and two alarm clocks; one for the quiet corner and the other for his bedroom. The clocks are used to set timers, the displays are large and bright enough for client to see. The cost of these items total is $130. Thank you for your kindness.
We would like to submit a request to assist a needy family with paying lot rent (600.00) and electric bill (317.00). This is a single parent family with mom and two young boys ages 7 and 9. Mom is unable to work due to a diagnosed seizure disorder that also leaves her unable to drive. We are in process of applying for Social Security Disability for mom and her two boys who struggle with developmental delays as well as PTSD and ADHD. We are assisting mom with mental health support at BNC as well due to a history of childhood trauma. This family escaped a domestic violent situation in Texas to return to Kansas where there are some family members located for natural supports, unfortunately family is poverty stricken and unable to assist them financially. Any assistance would be beneficial to this very deserving family. You’re blessing many lives.
We are currently working with an 8 year old child who is diagnosed with several mental health concerns. She has hallucinations and struggles with feeling safe in any environment. The family is very caring and working with her to help her in every possible way. She also has mental health services and treatment. While working with the family, we were able to identify 3 tools they could use to help the child feel safer. Both parents are working but with normal expenses and extra expenses for the child, they are living paycheck to paycheck. I am asking for help to purchase these needed items. I've listed the items that can be purchased through Amazon by any donor or I will happily order these with any donations received. Thank you for considering this request and for all of your support for our families and workers!!

A young name is in need of a new futon. He has been offered a bed, but he prefers a futon for when he has friends over. The one that he currently has is broken.

Family foster home in Lawrence recently had a check done for bed bugs. The bug man didn't see any active bugs but recommended the family get a treatment done since they have been having issues with bed bugs. The company is giving the family a discount at 700 dollars for this treatment. KVC is asking for help paying for this treatment service- the full amount is 700 but any amount would help!! it is important that the bed bugs get taken care of as one child is almost at reintegration and cannot have bed bugs in bio home in order to reintegrate (visits in home are occurring) and the family just took a sibling set of 4 for placement and don't want to have bed bugs be an issue anymore. Thank you!
I have a student at my school whose family is being evicted from their apartment in 10 days. The 6th grader attends my school and is such a hard worker and a very sweet kiddo. There are two additional students in the family younger two are in elementary and early education in our district, ages 4 and 10. The mother is a single parent supporting the three children on her own. She is trained and worked as a nurse, but due to an injury has been unable to work for several months recently and they have fallen behind on rent. They owe two months rent and fees associated with the eviction process in the amount of $3387. The mother expressed they have no family in the area they can stay with and she is extremely worried about becoming homeless in the winter. She is working willingly with the school social worker to access community resources, but so far has been unsuccessful in finding emergency funding. Any contribution towards the total will hopefully help mom be able to negotiate with her apartment management and give her time to pursue other ways to help cover the cost.
The oldest is in 6th grade and she is a good student and a basketball player. The family has been through a lot this past few months. The mom shared that she is very scared of being evicted in winter and not having a place to go when it is cold outside.

A mother is very close to reunifying with her children; she just needs one more bed! She would like a daybed or a bed that works as both a couch and a bed since she will be sleeping in the living room to make space for her children.
She would also like a Ring doorbell as a safety precaution to ensure the perpetrator of the children's abuse does not come to the home and to help the children feel more safe.
