Mother found out she has Stage 4 Colon Cancer. She is very concerned about her children and how they are going to handle the news and their upcoming journey. She has 3 children in the district, ages 5, 8, and 13. We would like to provide either gas cards for her to go back and forth to treatment and/or gift cards or gifts for the children for Christmas.

Mother is a single mom and is doing the best she can raising 4 boys. She is behind on BPU bill as she recently moved to Kansas after fleeing from her abusive husband. Mom is working really hard but just needs some extra support. Mother is asking for help with groceries and payment of her utility bill to alleviate concerns for children going hungry, and to ensure they are getting fed properly. It will also ensure their electricity does not get shut off as the holidays and cold weather approach.
A family who Clay County Children's Division is helping is in need of a Spire payment to be met. Family has been dealing with job issues and being cut hours and lay offs. They have been unable to make their Spire bill- they have attempted to make half payments so they could get their hot water turned back on and they have been declined. They have to make all $545 to be able to get their hot water turned back on. Being able to turn the hot water on again will help the family in many ways. Children and family are having to brush teeth with very cold water, showering with very cold water, etc.
Two single moms, each with 2 children, are in need of extra support. Although they are both employed, they struggle financially to make ends meet. They are in need of basic furniture items for their home, including a couch, a kitchen table with 6 chairs, a vacuum cleaner, and clothing storage items. A plastic dresser or storage cart for each child would be ideal. The children include a girl (age 10) and three boys (ages, 7, 4, & 4). Thank you for any help you may be able to provide. Having a table and chairs in time for Thanksgiving would be a blessing.

Local family of 5 needing assistance with a leaky windshield. Mom shared that when it rains, rain just pours in to her front windshield of her truck. She showed me where you can push on the windshield and it moves, nearly popping out. The family does not have a garage to park in and parents are very concerned about upcoming freezing temps causing even more damage and safety concerns. Mom called and got a quote from Cameron Glass.

We are specifically looking for a pair of tennis shoes for a girl, pre-school aged, size 10.5. She does not have a pair of shoes that are appropriate for school. We would love to have a few spare pairs of tennis shoes for other pre-school aged children, as school appropriate shoes are always needed at our Early Childhood Center/ Head Start. Besides the specific girls 10.5, any gender and pre-k sizes from 9-13 would be helpful. Thank you!

This is a two parent family who has struggled for years trying to meet adequate housing requirements. They have a lot of needs, but if we could get help with a few specific things, it will prevent further required action from Children's Division.
The floors of the home are plywood. They are in the need of Kilz to use on the floors and some walls. The family has tried to rid the home of roaches on their own with no success. An exterminator may be too expensive, but we're looking for an extermination of roaches if possible. Updated on November 16, 2023 by an Agency Worker Family still in need.
I am working with a local family that is in need of assistance with a vehicle repair. Their primary vehicle had the air compressor go out in their car; which affects the cabin air intake, and power steering so it is not able to be driven. They requested a quote for the repair, and it will cost about $2,000. The family is aware that this is an expensive repair and is asking for any kind of assistance to cover part of the bill or help with performing the repair. The family has a child that is in need of medical care and reliable transportation is very important for this family!
