Family of 4 transitioning from homelessness. The family has been homeless since February of 2021 and has secured stable housing. The have most recently stayed with a shelter and report that the shelter is helping them with living room furniture but all other household items including cleaning supplies that one needs to live independently are needed.

A mother who has been dedicated to reunifying with her four children is facing some very hard times. The mother was able to find reliable transportation and housing, however with her not being employed at the moment, she is high risk of losing her vehicle due to outstanding balance. The mother has been involved in medical appointments and any educational decision making. This family is close to reunification; however the mother is struggling to pay bills since her recent injury. The mother has tried to keep her bills paid to ensure she has proper housing for herself and for the children. At this time, the financial request would be towards the mother's car payment, which also allows for the mother to visit with her children consistently.

Good afternoon! I have an 18 yr old youth currently in the custody of the MO children's Division that I am working with to help her transition to adulthood. To that end I am requesting community assistance to help my youth pay off her current phone bill so she can get off her parents plan and get her own phone plan. For context, My youth is currently in a transitional living program and has her own apartment in Jackson County. She has a job and is working on transitioning to living independently without assistance from others.
At this time, My youth has a phone but her phone plan is still on her parents. The parents themselves are homeless, and not financially dependable to pay the family plan (despite my youth paying her end each month). This has resulted in my youth losing service numerous times due to her parents being unable to pay the entire phone bill. My youth does not have internet in her apartment, and she needs reliable phone service to request stay in communication with me, request ubers, and have a lifeline in case of emergency. Currently only $400 remains to pay off her phone. Once she has this, she will be able to go to phone store with her parents and pay the remainder of her phone which will allow her to switch service providers. My youth plans to switch to mint mobile.
My youth's phone is currently off so any assistance to help support this youth would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Single mother who just recently moved and started a new job is in need of some used living room furniture to furnish her home. There is one child in the home with no additional supports. Thank you in advance for strengthening this family.
A relative family has taken in a sibling group of three, ages 9, 10 and 12 as their pre-adoptive resource. The mentioned family member, a relative to these three kids, moved from the State of Washington two summers ago to adopt her nieces and nephew. The sibling group have been in care for over five years and have finally gained a sense of permanency in the near future with their family. With the household expanding to seven members, the mentioned family is financially struggling with putting food on the table to feed all of their children. We kindly request any donations that may help this family provide groceries, especially with the holidays quickly approaching.

I work with a family who has been struggling to make ends meet this year. She is a single mother who works in education and is struggling with her car payment and is in danger of losing the car. She owes $630.00 at this time but any portion of that amount would help. Without the car her children could lose access to attending school due to bus issues in our area and driving them is the only option at this time. Any help would help her get closer to getting caught up on this bill.

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.
