Family recently moved away from their church friends and family to a new home that offers more space for our fostering journey. We hope to add a play set and outdoor things for kids to enjoy on the few acres we have now. We also hope to be able to extend support to foster families in the southeast ks area similar to what we were so blessed with. We have started an intervention program , the first in the area. We are so excited to help the community here but miss everyone we moved away from. (foster parent, 3 kids)

Working with a foster and adopt conference local to Kansas City families from all over are coming to be able to spend some quality time with other foster families, have some spiritual growth and learn from many speakers on adoption and fostering.
Families are coming from as far away as Florida, and as close as Kentucky, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri.
Some of these families are asking for assistance with Gas cards to help with travel expenses. I would love to be able to help donate gas cards to these families who are attending this powerful weekend conference.
My friend has attended these conferences before and have found them to be life giving to her foster home! I would love to donate gas cards totaling $250. Please let me know what dollar increments and gas station is preferred.
Single mom of 3 children is in need of getting birth certificates for her children so they can enroll in a new school. This family has been homeless, and by staying at many different homes, she has lost a lot of important information. We have been helping her get her ID, SSN, and now birth certificates for her and her children. This transition for the kids has been tough and she believes them switching schools to where they are now will help them become more stable. This process is all part of her getting a job, housing, etc. We are wrapping around this mom to support her in this process!
A teenager is in need of a new comforter and sheet set for a queen size bed. Her current ones are worn from different placements, but still do the job for now. Her favorite color is green and she has a bubbly personality.
The placement is also in need of a doorbell camera as well for their safety. There have been instances that have made them feel unsafe, and they would like to be able to tell who is coming to their door in case they need to call the cops.
This family has struggled to reunite and secure an appropriate apartment. They now have an apartment but had fallen behind in rent and utilities. They have now caught the utilities up and believe that going forward they will be able to satisfy their monthly rent and utilities. Both mom and dad work full-time. They are requesting $670 for February rent to insure they go into the month with all bills paid and they believe they will be able to manage all going forward.

Grandma has placement of three of her grandsons from Missouri foster care, ages 16, 13, and 12. A pipe in her front yard burst and needed to be replaced. She then was hit with another large bill in December when she needed to fill her propane tank to heat the house. Grandma is needing financial assistance to help with these unexpected bills. This would allow her to avoid going deeper into debt and ensure the family will have heat.
My client's mother (71) passed away and she was in the home of reintegration. My client is needing help getting all the clutter out and sorting and organizing and getting her mother's belongings packed, sold, given, or thrown away. She was a hoarder. The mother was planning on moving to Thornton Place (a retirement community) and then passed away. More information will be provided once someone is able to help with the next 2 weeks.
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. He is wanting one that is more comfortable like a bed as well. Getting this futon will allow for him to not only get a good night's rest, but it will also allow for him to socialize with his friends.

I have a 15 year old foster child on my caseload who currently has braces but has been unable to get the brackets replaced and be seen by the orthodontist as her step-mother has not been financially able to make the monthly payment. The 15 year old's braces were put on in 2020 when she was residing with her biological father and step-mother. Since coming into care with three of her siblings (there are 5 kids total- one is not in care), the step-mother has not been able to pay the monthly bill due to other priorities (rent, utilities, food, gas, after school programs, sports, etc). The step-mother is employed full time but still does not have the finances to get caught up on the 15 year old's braces.
Assistance for the braces is greatly needed as the 15 year old's is starting to struggle with the lack of services required to maintain her braces. I do have the billing from the orthodontist office for verification of pricing.
To get the plan re-open, the cost will be $500. To pay off the total amount for the braces and receive current maintenance for the braces is $2300.00
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!
