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)

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!

A teenager is in need of a new comforter and sheet set for a queen size bed. Her current ones are worn from different placements, but still do the job for now. Her favorite color is green and she has a bubbly personality.
The placement is also in need of a doorbell camera as well for their safety. There have been instances that have made them feel unsafe, and they would like to be able to tell who is coming to their door in case they need to call the cops.
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.

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.

A single mom with an 8 year-old boy and 9 year-old girl coming out of homelessness after losing disability benefits and are in major need of funding for utility bills. Dad is an addict and not in the picture and uncle on dad's side is helping them get stable. They are staying in an empty house owned by a relative of the uncle and he is paying their rent for now but they are living with no furniture, water or electricity. There are past due balances and activation fees on the electric and water that need to be paid in order for them to be turned on, totaling almost $1500, but any amount helps! We are hoping the CarePortal community can contribute some funds to help get the utilities turned on for this family.
We previously helped this family with light bill from a CarePortal Request (53051) - a single mom of an 8 year-old girl with severe anxiety and seizures, and a 6 year old boy with a variety of medical issues leading to immobility, obesity and developmental delays. Mom works literally around the clock to provide all of the extra care they need, on top of having her own medical issues she is trying to address for the first time in years. Since the original request, we have been getting to know the family and providing additional items as needed. Mom is very sweet, thankful and responsible and it has been a joy to support them. She never wants to ask for help but recently shared that bathing her son at his size is very difficult and taxing for her, and that having a special showered and chair would be a huge help and relieve a lot of the stress around caring for her high-needs son. Additionally, their AC went out over the Summer so we are looking for funding for a window unit that was provided to them. Thank you for any help you can provide!
