The Jackson County Children's Division: Investigations Office is in dire need of a refrigerator. Our team has recently greatly increased in size and our current refrigerator no longer supports the team as we've outgrown it. With this fridge, we would be able to nourish and keep the protectors of our county's children fed. With your help, we can keep this group of hardworking heroes moving sharply and making accurate judgements when considering the safety of our youth-- anything would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I am currently working with a mother of two with severe mental health issues. She has been unable to work and owes $2200 for her gas bill. They turned off her gas this week and will not turn it back on until she pays $1250. We were able to find a community resource that will pay $500 if we are able to come up with the remaining $750. The mother is working to get into vocational rehab at this time as well as additional mental health services. The gas in her home is for her stove, hot water heater, and heat. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you for considering this request and for all your support in our community! Updated on June 05, 2023 by an Agency Worker We still need help with this, any help will be appreciated.
I have a teen who needs help paying for immunizations for her dog. I know this isn’t a typical request but this dog means the world to this teen. She raised the dog since it was a pup and has spent a great deal of time training it and entering it into dog competitions (fly ball, I think?). The dog is her companion and she is very attached to him, he has been with her when many people have abandoned our youth. Our youth is in foster care and placed a few hours from the KC area.

Our older youth was in florida when she was pulled over for driving without headlights on, and driving without a license. She was driving to pick up her 6 month old daughter from the person who was watching her. This youth has been trying to work and get the money to pay for the tickets but the cost of having her daughter, and getting her the items that she needs comes first. The tickets are $113 and $166. we are desperately trying to help her pay this so that she does not get a warrant issued for not paying the fines. She has been an amazing mother to her daughter, and this has been a stressful situation for her.

This boy has been in care since he was 17 months old, and he will be turning 5 in August. He will be starting kindergarten in the fall, as his twin brother's needs can be better accommodated by the school district than by their preschool. His occupational therapist has recommended a summer therapy group for kindergarten readiness, with focus on social interactions, visual motor, fine motor, gross motor, and cognitive activities. This group is also being recommended for his twin brother, which has been submitted separately.
