Parents are behind on utility bills, 198.45 for electric and 610.96 for gas. Children are currently placed out of the home with relatives, however, if the utilities get shut off parents will not be able to have visits in the home and it could hinder reunification as parents could be subject to eviction for having the utilities shut off. Parents are actively involved with the case and doing all services asked of them to reunify with their children. Having the utilities shut off could be a detriment for the case and cause possible delay in reunification.

A 17-year-old girl, eldest of her family, expressed feeling frustrated because her car needs repair. At 17, there are a lot of things she is buying for her senior year that she needs money for (college applications, basketball shoes, fees on her school account, senior pictures, etc) but without a car she is hardly able to work as she has no way to get there. She lives in a single parent household with four siblings and helps mom with running errands and taking kids to and from school. This young woman is a A+ student and is very involved in her community.
She said it would be a little over $250 to fix her car but any assistance would help tremendously.

A single mother of four is needing some assistance to help children. She is not working at this time due to the cost of daycare and has three children that are not yet in school and one being an infant. She has utilized her older car seat from her other children for the infant, but she is asking for assistance with a newer car seat that will transition as the child ages and the baby is currently about 4 1/2 months old but bigger than the average child at that age. In the request the toddler/convertible car seat was chosen as mom would like one that transitions but want to again point out that kiddo is still an infant so chose the most accurate for description purposes. She also would like to get a pack 'n play for her baby with a fitted sheet. She does not want a crib and has specifically asked for a pack 'n play only. In addition to that, the mom could also use some help with clothing for all of the children. There is a boy who is 6 years old and would wear size 7 or 8, medium, two girls ages 3 and 4 and similar in size so sizes 4 and 5 would be fine for both. The 4 1/2 month could benefit from clothing sizes 6 months and above. All of this will help keep the kiddos safe, warm, and ready for the ever-changing weather and help alleviate some of the financial stress on the mom. Thanks!
We can help with the pack n play and crib sheet. If mom has transportation, she can visit our church's Impact Center and pick out clothes for her kiddos. She just needs to make an appointment. If she doesn't have transportation, we may be able to pick up clothing for her.

Clothes for a Child / Children (see description details)
Two single moms, each with 2 children, are in need of extra support. Although they are both employed, they struggle financially to make ends meet. They are in need of basic furniture items for their home, including a couch, a kitchen table with 6 chairs, a vacuum cleaner, and clothing storage items. A plastic dresser or storage cart for each child would be ideal. The children include a girl (age 10) and three boys (ages, 7, 4, & 4). Thank you for any help you may be able to provide. Having a table and chairs in time for Thanksgiving would be a blessing.

Single mom pregnant with her first child is needing help with paying past due rent in the amount of $1211.00. This client was working but lost her job due to having to take off from work for doctor appointments because of pregnancy complications. She was also hurt on the job due to an accident that happened that was not her fault and is currently in litigation for that. She has already been to several organizations in the Kansas City area for help, but each one is either out of funding at this time, not accepting applications at this time or are overwhelmed with applications and are not taking any more at this time. The client has been looking for another job and is hopeful she will start work soon. In the meantime, the client has just been approved for unemployment and receives a monthly check of $796.00 for blind disability (She's legally blind in one eye) that she can use to pay future rent until she starts work. Because of the amount of the request, I have broken it into 2 payments of 605.00 in hopes that some churches would like to partner together to meet this need. This will help the client from being served an eviction notice keeping her from homelessness as she prepares for the arrival of her baby in a few months.

One of the children has medical issues that require a G-Tube. The family lives in a low-income area in Belton. The family has been having cockroach infestation issues. The landlord has refused to fix the issues himself. They got rid of the roaches once, but they came back due to them still being in the neighborhood. It is very clear after meeting with the family that this a poverty issue and not a neglect issue. The family lost a child back in 2016 and has been taking care of the other 5 children as best as they can. The estimated initial cost would be $275. He also stated that upkeep would be $85 every three weeks, but obviously the initial cost would be the most important and most expensive.
Mother of 3 has been working diligently to complete requirements through court ordered services to be reunified with her children. Mother is working hard however needs additional support to complete a needed class to resolve her additional court issues.
disabled Mother of 4 children with high behavioral needs is in IMMEDIATE need of rental assistance. Mother works from home and is heavily involved in the community but through a mix of needing to take time off for her kids' appointments and her car needing repair (which made her give up her side job of doing deliveries until it could be repaired), she got behind on her rent payments. Furthermore, her apartment routinely stacks late fees onto her balance, so she is further stretched. She has paid off $1300 of the amount but was informed today that she has 72 hours (11/10/2023) to pay off the remaining balance or she will be evicted.
If this amount can be paid off, not only will this secure housing for a family of five, it will allow her children to stay and receive mental health care). If balance can be paid off, mom will also not have to worry about late fees. and can begin saving her money for future emergencies, as opposed to constantly playing catch up.
