Critical Request
A mother and her 2-month-old child will be evicted from their apartment this Wednesday, January 25th. The mother went to court two weeks ago to see if they could get an extension. The leasing agent told them they could do an extension, but the eviction would be on their record, or they would have to leave by this Wednesday, and they wouldn't put it on their record. Mom chose to leave by the 25th. When mom chose this option, she believed she had some prospects on a place to move into. Now none of those prospects are available. Mom has been contacting the shelters to see if they can stay there but as of now nothing is available. Requesting a hotel room for a week until she can figure something out.

Shanen: Does she have a place to store her belongings during the in between time? Our church could help with marriage if she needs and I already have a bunch of boxes.

Critical Request
I'm currently working with a family that the father just recently lost his job of 11 years and the mother does not work at this time, the child is diabetic and needs to be seen at Children's Mercy and the family does not have the funds for gas to make it to the child's appointments to make sure they are meeting his health needs and getting his insulin for his pump and to be shown how to work the child's pump correctly. The family is also in need of some cups and silverware for their family to eat off of and drink out of as they do not have that right now.

Normal Request
This child is a 10th grade student at webster and currently at Buchanan County Academy (BCA). She is getting ready to go on home passes and will be finishing up her program with BCA in the next 6-8 weeks. The juvenile officer indicated that she has to have a bed at home before she can start her home passes. Father shared he does not have the money to purchase her a new bed as they had a bed bug incident with her inviting friends over and friends bringing it in the child's bedroom. Father reported while she has been in BCA he has made sure to get rid of any and all furniture in the home that had bugs and used his money to clean the home. Father is a single parent and struggles to pay bills and is often late on utilities because he rotates the bills he pays each month so they don't get shut off. He reported he does not have the money to purchase her a new bed and really needs help so she is able to come home from BCA.

Help Preserve a Kinship Placement
4
Normal Request
Who: Foster mom, kinship to the child, and the child, 13 years old. Why: This kinship placement is working beautifully to keep the child safe, drug free and attending school. The child reports feeling cared for, safe and wanted in this placement. The physical home of the family does not qualify for licensing. The three month of non-licensed kinship placement expired in December. The family is looking for a bigger home that will pass licensing, but cannot move until the lease expires in April. January - April will not provide the monthly maintenance payment for the care of the child. The family is NOT asking the child be removed, the Foster Mom is diligent in keeping the kiddo safe and wants her to remain in her home ,headed towards Guardianship. Money is tight and the stress of it is causing concern for the ability to have fuel to attend appointments, get back and forth to school and purchase healthy food. (Child is recovering from severe medical needs caused by drug use and on a high calorie diet including high protein items.) This Foster Mom is proud and is uncomfortable accepting handouts. I do not want to embarrass her but do want to assure our kiddos has the nutrients she needs to successful heal as prescribed by her doctors while relieving some of the stress on the family each month until they can be licensed. What: Request on behalf of the family; four $100 gift cards to Aldi, one for each month; January, February, March and April 2023
