High Urgency Need
Family recently moved away from their church friends and family to a new home that offers more space for our fostering journey. We hope to add a play set and outdoor things for kids to enjoy on the few acres we have now. We also hope to be able to extend support to foster families in the southeast ks area similar to what we were so blessed with. We have started an intervention program , the first in the area. We are so excited to help the community here but miss everyone we moved away from. (foster parent, 3 kids)

High Urgency Request
A single mom of a kindergartener needs immediate housing due to a fire. Belongings are almost a total loss. Mom has not requested assistance prior to this experience, despite mom having a lot of unfortunate events occur that were beyond her control. A year and a half ago, both of mom's retinas detached causing vision impairment among other medical issues. Due to this, employment and thus income became limited. As a result mom does not have savings to use towards emergency housing needs. At the urging of this school social worker, mom found an affordable apartment with an immediate move in date. The leasing office and mom completed a budget and confirmed the targeted apartment is a good financially sustainable fit for the family. Additionally, if able to rent, the kindergartener would not have to change schools. Mom immediately needs $210 (deposit & application fee) to secure the apartment. Within 10 days of approval in order to move in, mom needs $500 towards deposit and $1055 which is one month's rent and utilities combined. Any help towards this will be greatly appreciated.

I am working with a homeless student who is currently living in Hillcrest's Young Adult Transitional Housing Program. Thanks to Hillcrest's help, he has taken driver's ed and is preparing to take his test to obtain his driver's license, something he would not have been able to do without their support as the only living adult he has remaining in his life is incarcerated. He is a very responsible young man and has been working very hard to save his money, but he is having trouble finding an affordable used car to purchase. He also needs it to be sold by someone willing to sell to a 17 year old, as he does not turn 18 until this summer. He is looking for a reliable vehicle within the $2000-$3500 range. So, we are asking if there anyone out there who might have a good vehicle that fits this description that would be willing to let him take a look? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Single mom of 3 children is in need of getting birth certificates for her children so they can enroll in a new school. This family has been homeless, and by staying at many different homes, she has lost a lot of important information. We have been helping her get her ID, SSN, and now birth certificates for her and her children. This transition for the kids has been tough and she believes them switching schools to where they are now will help them become more stable. This process is all part of her getting a job, housing, etc. We are wrapping around this mom to support her in this process!

Grandma has placement of three of her grandsons from Missouri foster care, ages 16, 13, and 12. A pipe in her front yard burst and needed to be replaced. She then was hit with another large bill in December when she needed to fill her propane tank to heat the house. Grandma is needing financial assistance to help with these unexpected bills. This would allow her to avoid going deeper into debt and ensure the family will have heat.

We would like to submit a request to assist a needy family with paying lot rent (600.00) and electric bill (317.00). This is a single parent family with mom and two young boys ages 7 and 9. Mom is unable to work due to a diagnosed seizure disorder that also leaves her unable to drive. We are in process of applying for Social Security Disability for mom and her two boys who struggle with developmental delays as well as PTSD and ADHD. We are assisting mom with mental health support at BNC as well due to a history of childhood trauma. This family escaped a domestic violent situation in Texas to return to Kansas where there are some family members located for natural supports, unfortunately family is poverty stricken and unable to assist them financially. Any assistance would be beneficial to this very deserving family. You’re blessing many lives.

We are currently working with an 8 year old child who is diagnosed with several mental health concerns. She has hallucinations and struggles with feeling safe in any environment. The family is very caring and working with her to help her in every possible way. She also has mental health services and treatment. While working with the family, we were able to identify 3 tools they could use to help the child feel safer. Both parents are working but with normal expenses and extra expenses for the child, they are living paycheck to paycheck. I am asking for help to purchase these needed items. I've listed the items that can be purchased through Amazon by any donor or I will happily order these with any donations received. Thank you for considering this request and for all of your support for our families and workers!! Child needs a light switch for the hallway in her home. She is afraid of the dark and being alone. The family rents and cannot make any renovations so we found a light switch that links to the actual light and doesn't require wiring: ($19.99 and tax). Child needs a dimmable night light for her bedroom and bathroom so that she can control the amount of light in her room but have a reliable light during the night: ($17.99 and tax) Child needs a camera in her room to record her activity at night for her therapist and psychiatrist: ($29.99 and tax)

A young name is in need of a new futon. He has been offered a bed, but he prefers a futon for when he has friends over. The one that he currently has is broken. He is wanting one that is more comfortable like a bed as well. Getting this futon will allow for him to not only get a good night's rest, but it will also allow for him to socialize with his friends.

I have a 15 year old foster child on my caseload who currently has braces but has been unable to get the brackets replaced and be seen by the orthodontist as her step-mother has not been financially able to make the monthly payment. The 15 year old's braces were put on in 2020 when she was residing with her biological father and step-mother. Since coming into care with three of her siblings (there are 5 kids total- one is not in care), the step-mother has not been able to pay the monthly bill due to other priorities (rent, utilities, food, gas, after school programs, sports, etc). The step-mother is employed full time but still does not have the finances to get caught up on the 15 year old's braces. Assistance for the braces is greatly needed as the 15 year old's is starting to struggle with the lack of services required to maintain her braces. I do have the billing from the orthodontist office for verification of pricing. To get the plan re-open, the cost will be $500. To pay off the total amount for the braces and receive current maintenance for the braces is $2300.00

Family foster home in Lawrence recently had a check done for bed bugs. The bug man didn't see any active bugs but recommended the family get a treatment done since they have been having issues with bed bugs. The company is giving the family a discount at 700 dollars for this treatment. KVC is asking for help paying for this treatment service- the full amount is 700 but any amount would help!! it is important that the bed bugs get taken care of as one child is almost at reintegration and cannot have bed bugs in bio home in order to reintegrate (visits in home are occurring) and the family just took a sibling set of 4 for placement and don't want to have bed bugs be an issue anymore. Thank you!

Family preservation is assisting mother with getting her finances in order along with assisting with the clutter and hoarding like conditions in the home. She currently is renting her washer and dryer that she has, which she is struggling to pay month to month. If she had a washer and dryer she would eliminate that extra expense freeing up funds to pay her bills accordingly. Two children are in the home and one has special needs with a feeding tube.

A mother is very close to reunifying with her children; she just needs one more bed! She would like a daybed or a bed that works as both a couch and a bed since she will be sleeping in the living room to make space for her children. She would also like a Ring doorbell as a safety precaution to ensure the perpetrator of the children's abuse does not come to the home and to help the children feel more safe.
