Help Prevent a Child From Entering Foster Care
8
Normal Request
Parents with 6 children (ages 3 months old to 14 years old) are being evicted from their home on 11/15. The family does not have any close friends or other family they can stay with. There are currently no housing programs that have available homes ASAP for this size of family. We are requesting funds to temporarily put them in a hotel, while we take action for a long-term housing plan with assistance from housing focused agencies. We are worried if we cannot keep them in a hotel for some time, they would have to move to go to a shelter in a different town. Dad is currently working and doing well with his job that he just started so we are hoping to keep them in Lawrence until we can figure out next steps, so dad can continue to work - as they also have no transportation. Also requesting boxes and moving supplies to start packing the items they will be taking with.
Location: Lawrence, KS 66046 - County: Douglas - Children Served: 6 - Adults Served: 2 - Agency: #KS-DCCCA - Tier 1: Physical Needs - Estimated Value: $410
