Two children (Boy age 9 and Girl age 8) are living with their biological grandparents after their previous adoptive home fell through. The grandparents are doing a wonderful job of taking care of the kids and getting them the supports and services they need. The children's school is offering a holiday day camp while school is out of session for the Christmas holiday. The family would like financial assistance getting them enrolled so that the elderly grandparents can keep the children in their routine as much as possible for the children's mental health. The program has a $75 enrollment fee per child, and a cost of $30/day/child. This would total to $450 for the two children for the 5 day program.

Hello everyone, we have a wonderful family from our Lead Neelys Bend Campus. One of our students requires help with a new pair of glasses. Unfortunately, while on an educational adventure, the student had an incident with their glasses and they broke. Despite efforts to fix them, the damage has increased. The parent took their child to the eye doctor, but unfortunately, they ran out of warranty for a replacement pair of glasses. The earliest the student can get new replacement glasses with insurance is next April. This is causing a problem for the student as the glasses are not staying on their face properly. Therefore, we are reaching out to see if anyone could support this family in getting a new pair of glasses for our student. Thank you in advance for any support that can be provided.
2-month-old baby boy who has been in the NICU since birth, discharging home on Wednesday (12/06) with complex medical needs and significant medical equipment (feeding tube/pump; suction machine; cough assist). Family already has a stroller (double stroller) but this stroller is not safe for baby due to positioning needs. The family has been encouraged to obtain either a carseat with bassinet attachment (and bottom shelf for equipment) or a wagon to help transport baby. Any help in obtaining this item that family was not expecting to have to need is greatly appreciated. Please reach me at(###) ###-#### to discuss plans for assistance.

I work with a family at our school who is a single parent and is employeed and just barely making ends meet. Their bank account information was stollen last week and she is in crisis trying to pay her bills. Her car tag fee is one bill she cannot pay and they are expired by a few weeks and she is worried she will get in trouble. She relies on her vehicle to get her children to school and to drive to her job. The amount of the tags is $245. If anyone is able to help this family, they have a lot on their plate and this would enable the mom to prioritize other bills and expenses this holiday. Thank you for considering!

We are coming to you with an immediate need regarding a mother who is unable to pay her phone bill. This is a more immediate need because mom is currently unstable and needs to have access to her phone to reach out for mental health support if needed. She is engaged with our adult services and is slowing engaging due to severe anxiety, issues related to parenting a child who struggles with severe emotional disturbance and an abusive husband she is trying to separate she and her children from. For her safety she is in need of $110 to pay her phone bill before it is shut off. We are hoping you may have a donor interested in helping this mother. Thank you for your quick responses to the needs of those we serve. You’re blessing many lives!
This family is in need of items for their home. The mother has been able to not work due to maternity leave and needs items from her home; she has been trying to maintain the bills and the home with the little income that she has until she is able to work. She has made huge progress over the past six years despite going through tough times and has really shown significant progress with the program during my time with her. I have noticed there are things that the home needs when being there for visits with the family, along with looking over the rooms. The mother has recently moved into this apartment and really started with nothing. The home has maintained staying clean, and I would like to get Mom a few items so she does not have the financial burden of trying to come up with money while parenting three young children (including a newborn). I hope you can help me. This would greatly be appreciated by the family!
See the identified needed items, which would include a high chair, beds for the kids, dressers, clothes, etc.
The sizes for the family include :
Girl #1- size 4/5 or S

DCS is working with a family on reunification.....
This family is trying to reunite with their two young sons that have been in custody just over a year. The family is working services with the department for reunification. The father works a full time job and the mother is currently working through door-dash so that she can participate in the needed services. This family has worked really hard to complete tasks of the permanency plan while also struggling with finding housing. They were finally able to secure housing and are able to make the payment going forward.
If they are able to make the down payment of $850 by Monday EOD, they have an apartment secured. Mom has been doing door dash as much as possible and has already raised $350. She will continue to do so over the weekend, but as of right now they need another $500 to secure the apartment. Please support this family on their journey to reunification!

Single mother who just recently moved and started a new job is in need of some used living room furniture to furnish her home. There is one child in the home with no additional supports. Thank you in advance for strengthening this family.
This request is to help parents in being able to throw a birthday party for their two year old daughter at Chuck E Cheese. This is one of six children and one of four birthdays in December and January. By covering the cost for the party would alleviate some of that stress the parents experience during this time to make sure their children get to have fun on their birthdays, get presents for their birthday, while also making sure that they are able to get all the children presents 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 single mother raising two children has been facing difficulties finding work because of health issues and not being able to drive. She's reaching out for help to get a new mattress and box spring for her family. However, just mattresses will work fine as well. The family's current beds are almost a decade old, falling apart, and were hand-me downs. On top of that, the mother deals with Psoriasis and Arthritis, and her pain has been worsening because her bed doesn't provide enough support.
Unfortunately, the family hasn't had success getting help from local resources for beds. They urgently need a Queen-sized bed and two twin-sized beds.
If they could get assistance with this, it would greatly improve their sleep, relieve the discomfort of sleeping on worn-out beds, and ease the stress the mother feels from struggling to find suitable beds for her family.

The mother of three children has had to relocate after issues with her current location being in ex husband's name. She unfortunately had to request a new benefits card that will not received in time to pay the 1st months rent and deposit on her new apartment. She is supposed to sign the lease on Friday 12/1/23. She has partial payment in cash, but without being able to access her benefit funds she is going to be $400 short. She is requesting $400 to help secure a new home for her and the children.
I am working with a family that lost a lot of their household items due to a bed bug infestation. There are 4 children and two adults living in a two-bedroom apartment. Currently, the children's clothing is on the floor in their closet, and it is difficult for them to locate items that they need. The children's mother has some mental health concerns that she is working to address. Therefore, updating their space and improving the conditions that her children are living in will help boost the overall morale of the home. Thank you so much for any and all help that you can provide. The family is enthusiastically open to second-hand and pre-loved items. Small laundry baskets, bookshelves, and any small storage items would also be helpful.
One of the older children has asthma and has a difficult time keeping up with their siblings. Their mother thinks that a double stroller would help with this a lot.
Thank you so much for supporting the community.

Restore Community Church has a new twin roll out trundle bed with metal slats and lockable casters for this family. It is not a toddler bed, but the platform frame is only a few inches high, and might be suitable for this family. Restore also can provide a new mattress and bedding. If desired, Northland Church KC can deliver this week.
Single mom needing pull ups and rubber sheets for two twin beds.
Two of the children continue to wet the bed at night and teachers are reporting the children smell of urine when at school. All four children sleep in the beds together so both mattresses need to be covered.
Mom just lost her job, so money is an issue at this time to get the items.

One of our DCS foster family’s has been caring for a 3 year old girl with extreme special needs. Until recently she had been safely sleeping in a crib. She has now discovered she can climb out, and there is major concern that she could get very hurt. The best option for her is to now be on the floor in a Montessori bed in order to meet her needs. The foster family has tried to get insurance to provide this bed and they won’t. Please help us keep this sweet girl safe!
Note - Walmart has a Cyber Sale right now for this specific bed (
