Single, disabled mother with two high needs children needs assistance with her water bill. Mother is not able to work an ordinary job due to her disability and the needs of her children so she instead runs a nursery in her backyard. Between that and her children's medical needs, she has fallen behind. If she can pay this amount off, it will enable her to sign up for a set payment each month.

Mother with two high-needs children needs help with her gas bill. She had gotten behind on it and combined with late fees, the amount is spiraling out of control and her account is scheduled to be shut off. If any amount can be paid on this, it would be a huge help to the family.

The family is in need of utility assistance. Currently this family has 6 children in the home. This family has fallen behind on the light bill after a temporary decrease in income due to the loss of the placement's mother. This family recently received a shut-off notice for a disconnect on 9/12/2023. In order to maintain stability and placement for the children in the home, all utilities must remain active. The help will prevent the possibility of the children being removed from the home as two of the children have special needs. Please consider helping this family. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

The family in need currently has 4 children placed. Each child has been placed in the home for over a year. This family is willing to accept two additional children. One of which is a sibling to one of the children already in the home. Another is a 15 y/o child who was abandoned by her mother. She's eager to attend school as she's been homeschooled since kindergarten. In order for the child to attend school she has to reside in a home/district. This placement provider welcomes both children with open arms but is unable to provide a living space until additional bedding is in place. Both children need placement and stability ASAP; this home would be a great fit for each of the children. Please consider. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you! Updated on September 07, 2023 by an Agency Worker The placement provider sent her most recent utility bill from Evergy. The total of the bill as of 9/6/2023 is a grand total of $1,185.68. However, any amount shared would be appreciated. Thank you!

There is a family who is facing shut off of their utilities and risk falling behind on their mortgage payment due to owing back money on their past bills on their utilities. They were trying to supply diapers and food for their kids without having them realize the situation they were in. They did not want especially their eldest child to see they were struggling and wanted to have some normalcy in the home. The breadwinner of the family, the father, lost his job at Watersee, and he was laid off due to a bankruptcy and he was left to figure things out for the sake of his kids. With the kids going back to school, they had to get some help from their parents to buy some supplies for the kids. The father had an interview yesterday for a new job, and he has a few lined up this week that he is hoping he can get so he can start working as soon as possible. He worries he will not get a paycheck in time to pay before they get cut off and then he will have fees to turn them back on that he cannot afford. He wants so hard to provide for his family and even felt shameful asking for help, but he said it has gotten to a point where he had nowhere else to turn to. These parents are working tirelessly to make ends meet for their children they are hoping to start trial home visits soon and stress the importance of having the basics for their kids. This family risks having their utilities shut off and does not want his kids to see his mom and dad struggling. Updated on September 08, 2023 by an Agency Worker Please call biological father at(###) ###-#### for specifics on paying utilities.

At this time, we had a family reunify unexpectedly and the mother is needing assistance as her children return home. Prior to the children's involvement with CD mother had been engaged in community supports but has lost that resource.
The family needs new bedding, toiletry items, and general household items.
The family would benefit from a washer and dryer as mother does not have transportation and struggles with going to laundry mat with so many children.

We are asking for help with rent to stabilize a family to prevent two children from coming into care. Mom works a full time job and is helping her two older children who are in college. Mom also has two younger children that are in the home that she provides care to. Last month, DCF redirected the SSID payments for the teenager that was taken into care. This caused mom to have to work overtime to try to make sure she was able to make rent. However, she has voiced that despite taking the max amount of shifts and working another part time job, she is unable to make her rent for this month and will become homeless with the two other children. Mom does have a plan moving forward but is struggling to make up for the last minute loss of the SSID payments. We are asking for any help we can to either fully cover, or go towards so we can make sure we prevent mom and the two younger children going homeless.
Daughter has very demanding mental health needs which has caused Dad to lose two jobs this year. Daughter needs a long term residential program but it is not covered by Mom's insurance. It would be covered by Dad's COBRA insurance but they cannot afford to pay for the COBRA and everything thing else that needs to be paid for. Daughter is currently at a short term facility, but the staff believes she needs a long term treatment facility. Mom works and Dad is looking for employment. Their immediate financial need is the electricity bill with Evergy. It is $1600 and they have a notice of termination for 09/09/2023. The family is doing everything that they can to get the daughter help, they have just hit a hard time. The total bill is a lot of money, but any assistance would go a long way in helping the family get daughter help and the family closer to financial stability.

Patient has already been born but remains in the hospital. Patient was born at 23 weeks gestation and was very ill through his initial months of life. He is now just over 4 months old with a possibility of discharging home with parents in the next week or two. Parents have 7 additional children at home ranging in ages from 7 to 18. Father works full time outside of the home and mother has tried hard to return to work, but it has been difficult working full time having a child in the NICU and having additional children in the home to care for. They have secured a car seat for patient already. Patient will have a lot of follow up appointments. Mother realizes having a stroller will make attending those appointments easier as many are at Children’s Mercy Hospital and the hospital is huge. Things she would find ideal in a new or used stroller would be ease of closing it to store in the trunk of their car. It would also be nice if it has storage area under the stroller to put his medical supplies and diaper bag in there.
Mom is agreeable to having the stroller delivered to the hospital if patient remains here. She is also comfortable with the organization helping to have her phone number to coordinate her getting this item. Updated on September 11, 2023 by an Agency Worker Patient has now discharged home, but I know mother would still appreciate having a stroller to help her navigate through the hospital for follow up appointments, etc. Also, I noticed in my last request it listed there being 7 adults and 1 child. There are actually 7 children and 2 adults- both parents.
Mother was ok with her phone number being given out if a group picks up this request.

Mother is a single parent raising 3 bio-children (one with complex medical needs) and 2 children from a previous relationship (that parent left the children to my client, and she is their only source of stability and support-receives no financial support for them). Mother used to work full time but has had multiple debilitating health conditions that have left her unable to work. She and the children are now in transitional living having survived homelessness. They have little income and are trying to save up for their own housing again. Unfortunately, their dryer quit working. It's unsafe for mother to drive anywhere. Even if they could get a ride, they don't have funding to go to a laundromat. Their housing complex does not have a clothesline. She has tried to call United Way for help with no luck. Thanks for any support you can provide!

Hello, I have a child who is developmentally behind and in a residential setting where she does not get many new items. Myself, the case manager and the staff at the residential program were exploring ways to motivate her to meet her treatment goals, as well as reward her. She has recently been asking every adult she is around if they have any Monster High or Rainbow High Dolls that she can take back to the facility. We are thinking if we can get her one or two of these dolls, it could help her overall progress in the program.
Family needs two beds for two children under 4 years old. Family's current sleeping situation is not suitable for children of their age. If family is able to procure their beds, the children will have a safe sleeping situation and feel like they are more of a part of the family. The family will in turn be able to save money and turn it to other opportunities like food, clothing, etc.
