Single mom pregnant with her first child is needing help with paying past due rent in the amount of $1211.00. This client was working but lost her job due to having to take off from work for doctor appointments because of pregnancy complications. She was also hurt on the job due to an accident that happened that was not her fault and is currently in litigation for that. She has already been to several organizations in the Kansas City area for help, but each one is either out of funding at this time, not accepting applications at this time or are overwhelmed with applications and are not taking any more at this time. The client has been looking for another job and is hopeful she will start work soon. In the meantime, the client has just been approved for unemployment and receives a monthly check of $796.00 for blind disability (She's legally blind in one eye) that she can use to pay future rent until she starts work. Because of the amount of the request, I have broken it into 2 payments of 605.00 in hopes that some churches would like to partner together to meet this need. This will help the client from being served an eviction notice keeping her from homelessness as she prepares for the arrival of her baby in a few months.

There are resources made available from the community. We are taking the lead and working out the details. Please send me the details of the person I need their address, and the name of the landlord contacts would be appreciated.
Abiding Fellowship, Community Lead Church. 2 weeks ago
One of the children has medical issues that require a G-Tube. The family lives in a low-income area in Belton. The family has been having cockroach infestation issues. The landlord has refused to fix the issues himself. They got rid of the roaches once, but they came back due to them still being in the neighborhood. It is very clear after meeting with the family that this a poverty issue and not a neglect issue. The family lost a child back in 2016 and has been taking care of the other 5 children as best as they can. The estimated initial cost would be $275. He also stated that upkeep would be $85 every three weeks, but obviously the initial cost would be the most important and most expensive.
Mother of 3 has been working diligently to complete requirements through court ordered services to be reunified with her children. Mother is working hard however needs additional support to complete a needed class to resolve her additional court issues.
disabled Mother of 4 children with high behavioral needs is in IMMEDIATE need of rental assistance. Mother works from home and is heavily involved in the community but through a mix of needing to take time off for her kids' appointments and her car needing repair (which made her give up her side job of doing deliveries until it could be repaired), she got behind on her rent payments. Furthermore, her apartment routinely stacks late fees onto her balance, so she is further stretched. She has paid off $1300 of the amount but was informed today that she has 72 hours (11/10/2023) to pay off the remaining balance or she will be evicted.
If this amount can be paid off, not only will this secure housing for a family of five, it will allow her children to stay and receive mental health care). If balance can be paid off, mom will also not have to worry about late fees. and can begin saving her money for future emergencies, as opposed to constantly playing catch up.

This family is working reintegration and living in Missouri. However, until the interstate approval goes through (ICPC), they cannot have overnight visits at the home, This would allow for the children to spend the night together as a family in Kansas. These parents have been working hard to get everything ready for their children to come home. We are so close, but cannot do overnights due to the location currently.

I work with a family who has a child with complex medical needs. The 4 boys were on 2 bunk beds, but both of the bunk beds have broken and are not safe for all 4 boys to sleep. Therefore, currently 2 of the boys are sleeping on the floor. The single mother is asking for assistance purchasing 2 new bunk bed sets. The ones she had were wood and she believes metal would be a better fit for their needs. I saw several twin over twin metal bunk beds for around $150 each.

This child/family is in need of financial assistance in funding the child’s tuition. The father shares that once he’s caught up on the past due tuition for the child, he’ll maintain the weekly cost as he recently started a new job. This child is not only missing school, but he’s missing out on his daily learning opportunities & his social interactions with his friends. The child has continued sharing his wishes to return to school.
Once the tuition is paid in full, the child is unable to return, leaving dad at risk of unemployment. Please consider helping this family! Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
