Critical Need
Single mom with 4 children is in critical need of a place to stay. She has triplets that are 6 months old and an 18th month old as well. She is getting out of a domestic abuse situation and will be out by the end of this week. She is a strong mother who is looking to turn her life around and get herself in a position to take care of herself and her children. We are looking to move her into a home that is very suitable for what will be best for her and her children. In order to do this, she is needing help to pay the rent. She has not been able to work due to the chaos that has been taking place. Paying the rent will allow her to move into this home and transition into this new life she has been hoping for.

Critical Need
Single mom with 4 children is needing assistance in paying rent. She has gotten behind because she has not been able to work due to her mother being in the hospital and then having to stay at home once she was out to take care of her. She is living paycheck to paycheck and needing help to get back on her feet. She is a great mother who is trying to take care of her children to the best of her abilities. Helping pay her rent would allow her to continue to take care of the needs of her children, like paying for food and other important necessities.

Critical Need
Mother and father with their 3 children (ages 7 months, 7 years, and 5 years old) moved to Kansas City from Houston recently and are homeless. We have been keeping them in a hotel for the past week and we are needing to extend their stay for an additional week so they have more time to figure out their next move. The parents are very dedicated in trying to figure out work and a living situation so they can go about and take care of their 3 children. We would love to bless them with another hotel stay for a week, and would appreciate any help!

This donation will help bring a baby under one year old back home with her mother! Her mother has worked very hard to rectify the reasons her daughter was brought into care. The mother has steadily moved along the process doing what is asked of her by the courts. At this time we are looking at entering trial home visit where the baby will live with her mother and CD will ensure continued growth and safety in the process. However to do so we will need to obtain some things that the mom is not necessarily able to afford at this time. We are looking for help obtaining a baby crib/ mattress that can be turned into a toddler bed when necessary upon the child's growth. We are also in need of 2 baby gates for this family so that the mother is able to block off access to the stairs as the baby is getting ready to begin crawling. Your help in this will help bring a bio family together.

High Urgency Request
A female child (5yo) has been in out of home care for 2.5 years after being removed due to mother's substance use, mental health, and physical neglect. Her father was not in her life at the time due to having contact cut off by the child's mother. As soon as he found out his child was in foster care he contacted who he needed to in order to re-establish a relationship with his daughter. He also struggles with substance abuse but has tested consistently clean for almost a year. He is working hard to get his home in working order for her to come home to him but is struggling to make his home safe as it needs a lot of repairs and he is behind on bills. Having his electricity bill paid off will help a lot with this process and hopefully get the kiddo home in the next few months.

A relative placement of a 5 month old girl has had her electricity disconnected and needs assistance to help turn it back on. Her minimum payment is $5.04, there is a $30.00 reconnect fee, and $60.00 to keep her from getting disconnected again for one month. KVC has recently assisted her in obtaining WIC to assist with formula which will help her to be able to pay her bills to maintain placement. Any assistance is much appreciated.

Mother has a two year child who has severe special needs; he recently had G Tube Insertion procedure so he can eat more efficiently. He has trouble maintaining necessary weight so he is involved in multiple clinics at Children's Mercy Hospital and usually has two or more appts per week at CMH. He recently was accepted into Ability KC Pre School which means he will go to Ability KC Pre School each weekday for Occupational and Physical Therapy and care each day. He has medical diagnoses of Periventricular Leukomalacia, Brain Disease- death or damage or softening of the white matter the inner part of the brain which transmits information.... and Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia., Chronic Lung Disease of Premature Babies. The parents are responsible for getting the child to Ability KC Pre School each day. The Ability KC Pre School is a prestigious program that kids have to qualify for based on their medical needs and disabilities. The automobile that the mother has access to at this time does not belong to her and it is not running well. Mother is afraid that the car will break down soon, and she has no control over the owner of the car who is prone to leave the home and not return so she can take her son to appointments.

Critical Request
Our Agency has a 16yo male currently in foster care custody, placed with a kinship provider. The 16 yo male also has a 7 month old daughter who is not currently in foster care. Our Agency just learned that the kinship provider was evicted and the family is living in a tent. Total family composition impacted is 2 adults, 5 children, and 3 dogs. This kinship provider was working on obtaining guardianship of our 16yo youth. The family has no funds and while we would like to figure out a plan to keep the family together. We are particularly worried about our youth and the baby living outdoors in the extreme temperatures we have been having. We are hoping a church is able to assist in an Extended STay MOtel for a month while we try to plan around this crisis or assist with locating emergency housing for them.

This child has recently finally found a wonderful placement to live with who adores her and wants the best for her. This placement wants to include the child in everything that they do as a family. The whole kinship family had purchased season passes to Worlds of Fun before the child came to live with them. The family doesn’t want to leave her behind when they use their passes, but they can’t afford to purchase a season pass for her. The family is asking for assistance to purchase a season pass for the child who is new to their household so that they can all go and enjoy Worlds of Fun together.

I am currently working with a teen that has started a lot of different services for mental and medical health. With multiple appointments and gas prices, there as been an increase in the cost of travel for the mother that she was not expecting with her income. I am asking for a donation (of any amount) to go toward a gas card to help the family afford the gas for transportation to and from these multiple weekly appointments. Thank you for considering this request and for all your support in our community. I am amazed as the support our cases receive through CarePortal and cannot thank all of you enough for stepping up to help us work with families to achieve their goals!
