High Urgency Need
Family recently moved away from their church friends and family to a new home that offers more space for our fostering journey. We hope to add a play set and outdoor things for kids to enjoy on the few acres we have now. We also hope to be able to extend support to foster families in the southeast ks area similar to what we were so blessed with. We have started an intervention program , the first in the area. We are so excited to help the community here but miss everyone we moved away from. (foster parent, 3 kids)

UPDATE:( Family has received 2000.00 towards rent ) so awesome yes Lord. God is so good so good ' We serve a big God and this is a big request. So lets see what happens. Single mom undocumented dad has been charged with sex crimes against step daughter. Dad was the only income so the family has been relying on churches to pay bills for 8 months While the family's rent although through dads brother has remained unpaid. There was false promises made by KERA to help they never did. Also false promises by other agency's that have left mom kids and landlord uncle in a financial crisis. He told me last night mom is behind 14,000.00 in rent. So he is in a huge bind. So my hope is that several churches can come together to get some back rent paid. This is a sad situation where the system has failed this family. So...... big God big need very likely uncle will need to evict soon if no help is given Pray hard and lets trust God and see what he does. Blessings Chuck

High Urgency Request
A single mom of a kindergartener needs immediate housing due to a fire. Belongings are almost a total loss. Mom has not requested assistance prior to this experience, despite mom having a lot of unfortunate events occur that were beyond her control. A year and a half ago, both of mom's retinas detached causing vision impairment among other medical issues. Due to this, employment and thus income became limited. As a result mom does not have savings to use towards emergency housing needs. At the urging of this school social worker, mom found an affordable apartment with an immediate move in date. The leasing office and mom completed a budget and confirmed the targeted apartment is a good financially sustainable fit for the family. Additionally, if able to rent, the kindergartener would not have to change schools. Mom immediately needs $210 (deposit & application fee) to secure the apartment. Within 10 days of approval in order to move in, mom needs $500 towards deposit and $1055 which is one month's rent and utilities combined. Any help towards this will be greatly appreciated.

I am working with a single mother and 4 children. The family has steep stairs in their townhome and the 3 younger children (2, 3, and 5 years old) all tend to play on the stairs. We have watched them fall during our visits and we are sure that they do this frequently as there is nothing blocking or stopping them from using the stairs as a place to play. We would like to provide the family with extra tall baby gates that can be installed at the bottom and top of the stairs to prevent any accidents. They are renting so we were able to find a gate that can be added without drilling or changing anything in the townhome. This can be found on Amazon at: It is a little over $50 per gate once tax is added. Any assistance would be appreciated. We are also willing to take any used gates that would accommodate this need as well if anyone has 1 or 2. Thank you for your continuing support!

I am working with a single mother with 4 children. There are several concerns regarding the safety of the children and the conditions of the home at this time. The family has agreed to get rid of their pets as they are not being taken care of and are causing unsanitary conditions in the home. We were able to find a home for the dog but the family has 2 mother cats with litters. I have contacted Wayside Waifs and they will take all 6 cats for $150 ($75/mother and litter). This is a no-kill shelter and is one of the few who will work with the family. We have completed the application for them to take the cats and have asked that this fee be waived in full or partially but in talking to the intake coordinator, I think this is the best deal we might get. If anyone is aware of other shelters or no-kill solutions, we are certainly open to this. Any assistance would be appreciated and the sooner we can get the out of the home, the better. Thank you for your continued support for our workers and families!!

Working with a foster and adopt conference local to Kansas City families from all over are coming to be able to spend some quality time with other foster families, have some spiritual growth and learn from many speakers on adoption and fostering. Families are coming from as far away as Florida, and as close as Kentucky, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri. Some of these families are asking for assistance with Gas cards to help with travel expenses. I would love to be able to help donate gas cards to these families who are attending this powerful weekend conference.

Single mom of 3 children is in need of getting birth certificates for her children so they can enroll in a new school. This family has been homeless, and by staying at many different homes, she has lost a lot of important information. We have been helping her get her ID, SSN, and now birth certificates for her and her children. This transition for the kids has been tough and she believes them switching schools to where they are now will help them become more stable. This process is all part of her getting a job, housing, etc. We are wrapping around this mom to support her in this process!

A family has recently moved into a new home after one of the children's father was killed. The family is still grieving, and losing a source of income has forced the mom to look for other employment. She has a job opportunity that would help but does not have reliable transportation at this time to get to work. She has a bus pass, but not all work sites are on the bus line, so she is requesting an adult bike that she could use to get to and from work. Since they moved, the family is also seeking furniture for their home at this time. They are in need of dressers and a dining room table with chairs. Anything is helpful (however the bike is a priority so the mom can take the new job opportunity and earn more money for her family). I am not sure how much bike/furniture would cost so the amounts below are a rough estimate.

This family has multiple people in the household as they came together to take care of these 5 children who came into care. These 5 children's grandmother, lives with her mother and father and her other daughter who has two kids. We all joined together to make this placement work, so these children did not have to be separated. The grandmother does a lot for these children multiple doctor appointments and taking care of an infant with medical needs. The children are 10,7,4,2 and 4 months old. This family is in desperate need of a dryer if we could find one as their dryer quit working and going to the laundry mat is very expensive. They also need some help with a highchair big enough for the 2-year-old as he does need it. If they could get this help it would benefit the placement and the children.

Her favorite color is green and she has a bubbly personality. The placement is also in need of a doorbell camera as well for their safety.

We are currently working with an 8 year old child who is diagnosed with several mental health concerns. She has hallucinations and struggles with feeling safe in any environment. The family is very caring and working with her to help her in every possible way. She also has mental health services and treatment. While working with the family, we were able to identify 3 tools they could use to help the child feel safer. Both parents are working but with normal expenses and extra expenses for the child, they are living paycheck to paycheck. I am asking for help to purchase these needed items. I've listed the items that can be purchased through Amazon by any donor or I will happily order these with any donations received. Thank you for considering this request and for all of your support for our families and workers!! Child needs a light switch for the hallway in her home. She is afraid of the dark and being alone. The family rents and cannot make any renovations so we found a light switch that links to the actual light and doesn't require wiring: ($19.99 and tax). Child needs a dimmable night light for her bedroom and bathroom so that she can control the amount of light in her room but have a reliable light during the night: ($17.99 and tax) Child needs a camera in her room to record her activity at night for her therapist and psychiatrist: ($29.99 and tax)
