Critical Request
This family of 6, are very hard working but they don't have some basic necessities, such as beds. At this time they are sleeping on the floor and still managing to work and go to school every day, having beds would really make a difference their daily lives, especially for the children to have beds to sleep in.

DCCCA is working with a homeless family who have been living in a hotel. The mother has recently started working, DCCCA has helped the family obtain childcare, transportation for school, and is working to help with housing. The mom's mother's health is declining and is not expected to live much long so the mom has not been able to work this week or last between the holiday and being with her mother. Because of this the family is $350 short to pay the December hotel rent on Saturday (12/3). If you can help cover all or a portion of this need for the family it will allow them to continue to have a stable place to live while DCCCA continues to work with the family to secure more permanent housing and allow the mom to spend this week with her mother and not worry about working or losing their place to stay.

I am working with a single mom and her 2 children who are living in a trailer. Mom struggles financially and is on a tight budget.The childrens father is involved periodically but does not help mom fianancially. Mom's trailer is older and has needed a number of repairs since she moved in. Most of her monthly income goes to cover lot rent for the trailer. At this time, this is their only housing option. Mom recently got water again, however the hot water tank on the trailer is not working so they do not have any hot water. I got an estimate on a new tank and installation from a plumber that is sadly higher than I expected. The water heater has a whole in it and needs to be replaced at a cost of $600. The labor cost is $250. I am putting in a request for help with any part of this cost. I will look for other funding resources to cover the amount that is left. I am appreciative of any help with this.

A caregiver needs help keeping her phone line turned on to remain in touch with her children while at work. Recently, one of her children has been struggling with some behaviors that require extra supervision. She had to call off work several times to remain with her child and has fallen behind on bills. Now she is able to return to work, but she needs to prioritize her phone so her child or the adult who is supervising can always reach her. Helping meet this request will help a caregiver be able to support her child and keep the family safe.

I have a young fun loving male who is currently autistic, nonverbal and housed at a medical facility in the greater Kansas City Missouri area and he has been there for some time due to his mother also being chronically ill and she can not meet any of his medical, mental, or physical needs. She had to give care of him over to Children's Division to provide proper care and custody of him as she realized she is physically unable. This young man is currently in need of clothing such as sweat clothes than he can wear in the facility in which he is housed. He is in desperate need of sweat pants and sweat shirts in the size of Large. Underclothing is also a necessity in this request. The items requested will help get this young man through the winter as the weather is changing and wearing basketball shorts and t-shirts is becoming a not so viable option.

Help Strengthen a Bio Family

Normal Need
We responded to a CarePortal request for this family back in September. Bio family had just reintegrated with their two female children ages 5 and 4 and were needing help with rent and two dressers. We were able to connect on both of the needs and met this sweet family in person to deliver the items. Soon after, a car battery installation was needed and before we even had a chance to have one of our volunteers get over there to help, dad had already taken care of it himself. They have a strong desire to be independent. We have been staying in touch with them and they recently let us know that the vehicle had broken down for good. Thankfully, they have another car they can use if the past due payment on it is made. They are able to afford the monthly payments on their own, they just need help getting caught up. Any amount is appreciated and will help get them closer to self-sufficiency again.

As a previous worker at Children's Division I know first hand the stress and hard work these workers go through. I would love to spread some love to the local Children's Division office downtown KC by supplying them with an Ice Maker. This seem like a small thing but they have been needing an ice maker since I was there 2 1/2 years ago and even before then. They have an older fridge that they have some ice trays in the freezer but that is not enough for everyone to add some ice to their beverages. An Ice maker would be a huge blessing to these workers as they can grab ice and water on their way to their next visit. They could grab ice for the soda donated to them from churches. I have done some research on ice makers and have found a few that could work for their break room space. I am asking $500 for the ice maker and an additional $500 to help cheer up their break room adding new chairs, tables and items to make it feel more inviting and comfortable. These items could go a long way for these workers and just in time for the hot days coming up! Thank you!
