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)
The family of two, has a mother who uses her vehicle for work to make deliveries , and this is her only form of transportation . The vehicle due to lack of an oil change is dragging and the mother does not want to drive it further until she can afford an oil change but she needs the vehicle to make money to get the oil change. Asking donor to please assist with getting this vehicle an oil change so this mother can continue to support her daughter .If possible she does need to replace two tires in the front. The used tires estimate for two /150.00 the Oil change for Dodge Truck 100.00 if you know a better price that will be great, thank you.
UPDATE:( Family has received 2000.00 towards rent ) so awesome yes Lord. God is so good so good ' We serve a big God and this is a big request. So lets see what happens. Single mom undocumented dad has been charged with sex crimes against step daughter. Dad was the only income so the family has been relying on churches to pay bills for 8 months While the family's rent although through dads brother has remained unpaid. There was false promises made by KERA to help they never did. Also false promises by other agency's that have left mom kids and landlord uncle in a financial crisis. He told me last night mom is behind 14,000.00 in rent. So he is in a huge bind. So my hope is that several churches can come together to get some back rent paid. This is a sad situation where the system has failed this family. So...... big God big need very likely uncle will need to evict soon if no help is given Pray hard and lets trust God and see what he does. Blessings Chuck
Children's Division is currently working with a grandmother who is taking care of a 4-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl while their mother is attempting to make some positive changes in her life. The grandmother has been successful in getting many of the needed supplies for the children, but she is having difficulty finding car seats for them. It would be an absolute blessing for them to be able to safely get to and from daycare.

A single mom with 5 children is experiencing homelessness. While DCCCA is helping to meet some of the family's needs, especially housing, we are asking donors to please consider a Target gift card so that we may purchase hygiene and laundry supplies for the family. Prayers are also welcome at this time. Thank you for your consideration!
I am working with a single mother and 4 children. The family has steep stairs in their townhome and the 3 younger children (2, 3, and 5 years old) all tend to play on the stairs. We have watched them fall during our visits and we are sure that they do this frequently as there is nothing blocking or stopping them from using the stairs as a place to play. We would like to provide the family with extra tall baby gates that can be installed at the bottom and top of the stairs to prevent any accidents. They are renting so we were able to find a gate that can be added without drilling or changing anything in the townhome. This can be found on Amazon at: It is a little over $50 per gate once tax is added. Any assistance would be appreciated. We are also willing to take any used gates that would accommodate this need as well if anyone has 1 or 2. Thank you for your continuing support!
I am working with a single mother with 4 children. There are several concerns regarding the safety of the children and the conditions of the home at this time. The family has agreed to get rid of their pets as they are not being taken care of and are causing unsanitary conditions in the home. We were able to find a home for the dog but the family has 2 mother cats with litters. I have contacted Wayside Waifs and they will take all 6 cats for $150 ($75/mother and litter). This is a no-kill shelter and is one of the few who will work with the family. We have completed the application for them to take the cats and have asked that this fee be waived in full or partially but in talking to the intake coordinator, I think this is the best deal we might get. If anyone is aware of other shelters or no-kill solutions, we are certainly open to this. Any assistance would be appreciated and the sooner we can get the out of the home, the better. Thank you for your continued support for our workers and families!!
This mother of 5, is currently living with her children in a motel, the family had no choice but to move due to landlord neglect the city shut down the dwellings and now the temporary home is in a motel. The mother pays a monthly fee to live in the motel, but this month she could not pay her storage fee and needs help to keep her items that are in storage, it would be much to difficult to replace these items because she just does not have the funds.
A single, loving mom of 6 children is in desperate need of a dependable vehicle. Mom's youngest child is 2 and the oldest is a 17-year-old who is developmentally delayed due to a traumatic brain injury. Mom is a hard worker, but has been unable to work this month or take her children to important appointments due to lack of transportation. Mom took her car to a mechanic months ago and the mechanic has not returned her car, nor will he answer his phone or return messages, and neither he nor mom's car have been located at the automotive shop. Please, if you have a dependable vehicle that you would like to donate to this wonderful mom and her equally wonderful children, contact me via email or phone. You will literally be changing this family's life! If you do not have a car, but would like to contribute towards the cost of a vehicle, I will provide you with our donation link. The family would also like to be lifted up in prayer. Thank you for keeping this family in your hearts and prayers!

Working with a foster and adopt conference local to Kansas City families from all over are coming to be able to spend some quality time with other foster families, have some spiritual growth and learn from many speakers on adoption and fostering.
Families are coming from as far away as Florida, and as close as Kentucky, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri.
Some of these families are asking for assistance with Gas cards to help with travel expenses. I would love to be able to help donate gas cards to these families who are attending this powerful weekend conference.
My friend has attended these conferences before and have found them to be life giving to her foster home! I would love to donate gas cards totaling $250. Please let me know what dollar increments and gas station is preferred.
