Single mother in need of financial aid due to her three-year-old son being hospitalized for an extended period of time. The child's hospitalization is a result of severe physical abuse by mom's now ex-boyfriend. Mom's daughter has also been admitted for abusive trauma but is now ready for discharge pending mom's living situation. Mom moved here from Nevada in November to be with her boyfriend. Mom has no familial supports or friends whom she trusts enough to care for her daughter while mom is at the hospital with her son.
A request for a monetary donation is being made so mom can afford an extended stay at a hotel. Biological father is on his way to help mother with childcare and will also be residing in the hotel. The goal is to house them for a week untill the daughter has a follow up appointment and can be taken back to Nevada.
Mom has no mode of transportation and will need to stay at a hotel near Children's Mercy.
IL is a 17 year old kiddo who came into Children's Division custody due to parental addiction and then abandonment. IL struggles with anxiety and and stress related depression, and needs a really good home. IL loves to listen to music, he loves drawing, reading and sports. IL needs a good stable and loving home where he can finish school and make a plan for his future. Unfortunately, teenagers are really hard to place. We literally called 24 counties looking for a good home. We have *finally* found a great home for IL - but they can't take him yet - because they don't have enough bed space. We are asking for a bunkbed - so that there is room to accomodate the addition of IL into this great home. We need to place IL immediately - so - if you can help - it would be greatly appreciated!!

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.
Single young mother with two small children in need of borrowing a car to take her driver's license test. Mother works overnights and can meet any time during the week in the afternoon to borrow car and take her test. Once this mom gets her driver's license, she can drive her car and take the children to appointments, she can go to work without using Uber or Lyft or catching a ride from someone else. This will help create more independence for this young mom. In the meantime, some Uber or Lyft gift cards would be helpful to this family until her driver's license is received.
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!
