Such as Chef Boyardee cups/meals, mac-n-cheese cups, Hormel Complete Meals, etc.; also peanut butter and jelly are good options.

Single mom currently living in a motel room with her 1-year-old child is facing tough times right now and struggling financially. She is in need of a pack-n-play so that her child can have a comfortable, more suitable sleeping arrangement rather than bedsharing with mom. Mom and child will be living in motel for a while due to recent eviction, and mom has no sleeping accommodations appropriate for baby and cannot afford to buy one at this time.

Normal Request
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.

Help Make a Kinship Placement

Normal Request
This request is for a relative placement out of state. They are anxiously awaiting ICPC to be completed so they can take placement. This is a young couple who are in need of everything baby. They do live in Delaware so if the items are purchased CD would asked that they are shipped to this family directly. However gift cards would work as well so this family can buy the things they want specifically. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me. For Safety & Cleaning they could really benefit from outlet covers, cabinet locks, and an oversized baby gate for the stairs. The gift card is to get the various other items needed in order to make placement

High Urgency Need
***Update*** Utilities for this family have been disconnected. Some payments have been made however, a $2,000 balance remains to reconnect service. A mother with two kids is in need of assistance with utilities asap. The family was abandoned by the husband/father and is now at risk for service disconnection. The mother works hard but has been struggling to stay on top of things since being abandoned by her husband. She's been trying to borrow money from family and friends but time is running out. She is afraid that losing electricity will put the family at risk and that her children could possibly be taken from her. Any Assistance for this family would be greatly appreciated.

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!

Critical Need
A single mom with an 8 year-old boy and 9 year-old girl coming out of homelessness after losing disability benefits and are in major need of funding for utility bills. Dad is an addict and not in the picture and uncle on dad's side is helping them get stable. They are staying in an empty house owned by a relative of the uncle and he is paying their rent for now but they are living with no furniture, water or electricity. There are past due balances and activation fees on the electric and water that need to be paid in order for them to be turned on, totaling almost $1500, but any amount helps! We are hoping the CarePortal community can contribute some funds to help get the utilities turned on for this family.
