Mother of two needs assistance with rent and has been warned that if she does not make payment, an eviction will be filed. Mother was working but after being assaulted by her abusive paramour, she was placed in the hospital for a week and was fired by her job. She has been using her savings but has run out. Mother does not have a relative resource and needs the rent assistance to keep a secure home away from her ex-paramour.
Young mother with a newborn needs immediate rental assistance. Mother was unable to work during her pregnancy and father was shot and killed, so she lost any other financial assistance. Mother is getting her taxes and can pay most of the difference and has a job she will be starting but her landlord has already filed eviction paperwork. The amount requested, combined with what she can pay should cover her and allow her to continue staying at her apartment.
I have a family of 8 in need of an 8 passenger van. hey are willing to pay $5000 for a vehicle but that is all they can afford at this point. They have one vehicle but they currently owe more on the vehicle than it is worth and are unable to trade it in for a larger vehicle. They would like to be able to attend school, church and other events together and having a larger vehicle would allow them to do so. If you have or know of anyone willing to sell or provide this family a reliable vehicle, it would be appreciated.

Two children in Missouri's care are in need of two twin beds with frames. Their placement is moving and the beds that they currently have will not be suitable for the new house. Receiving these beds will allow for the children to stay with their current place as the move occurs. Updated on March 13, 2023 by an Agency Worker Please update prices for bed frames to $93 each and the mattresses for $150 each. I have the links for both through Amazon. The grand total is $480.23. Thank you!

There are currently three children in care ages 4, 7 & 9. The mother and father are working very hard to get their home cleaned up. The worker has been out and they have done a good job at doing this. The home still has an odor that is believed to be coming from the furniture in the home given it's age and the belief it is soiled. We are seeking help with getting new living room furniture and a new dining room table for the family. We believe these gently used items will help reduce the smell and help us be able to reunify the children soon.
We are working with a family that is in need of assistance with their rent. Mom and Dad have recently started new jobs and are unsure if they will receive paychecks in time for March rent. They are also behind on other bills and feeling overwhelmed. We are asking for help in paying this family's rent which will put them a great start in getting back on track now that they will both have incomes. The family has stated that they are grateful for any amount contributed towards this need. Thank you for considering this request and for your help in keeping families together!
Good afternoon. I am requesting assistance to help a single mother with her transportation to complete court ordered services in Cass County, Missouri. My parent does not currently have a car and there is very little to no public transportation in the Cass County, MO area where she currently resides. The mother has been court ordered to complete a number of court services in order to get her children back and she needs some kind of transportation to be able to make it the locations to complete said services. We are asking if it might be possible for you to donate some money to purchase my parent a LYFT or UBER card in order to make getting around a little easier.
This request will help to complete these said court services, travel to work, and help her make efforts to pursue reunification in this case. Thank you so much!
There are 3 children ages 1,2 and 6 that were recently placed with their great aunt and uncle. The children are bonded to their relatives and love them dearly. Their aunt and uncle really want to keep them in their home. They love the children dearly and want to provide a loving and safe environment for them. The family does need assistance with getting the children beds. They need a crib for the one year old and the 2 and 6 year old both need a regular twin size bed. This will help maintain the placement for these children and keep them with their relatives.
We have a crib and crib mattress. Can you please clarify if you just need the crib or if the mattress would be helpful, too? I have a church member offering to buy a new mattress if needed. Thanks!

Good afternoon. I am a caseworker for the Cass County MO Children's Division. One of the families on my caseload is needing assistance in moving their mobile home/RV Trailer to a new location in the community. The mother currently does not have a vehicle and has very low income. She is needing help/volunteer with a truck/trailer hitch to move her current home (a mobile RV) to a new location nearby. The mother's RV has been sitting at a friends home, however it can no longer stay their. The mother has found a nearby lot that will accept her RV.
This request will help preserve the mother's home stability and prevent her from being homeless. Additionally, once the RV is in a stable lot/location, Children's Division may be able to assess the RV as a possible home option for the mother's children to live in while the mother looks for other housing options. Currently the mother's two children ages 12 and 13 are in a foster home in Jackson County.
The only cost for this request is a volunteer's time and maybe a small amount of gas money.
We have a team that can move the trailer. We will need to know how much it weighs and what kind/size of hitch it has, and we can help! Please reach out with details.
