Help Preserve a Kinship Placement

High Urgency Request
We have a couple who is currently caring for their granddaughter in a kinship placement. They are the sweetest folks and really have been a great placement for their granddaughter. Recently, with the rising prices, they have struggled financially and have fallen behind on their gas bill. Grandpa recently had surgery to repair a very old back injury, and though he is doing much better, he will not be released to work for sometime due to him normally doing manual labor type jobs. Grandma is employed, but like a lot of people, money is tight and goes to other necessities as well. They are currently behind on their gas bill for a total of $297.31. If this money was able to be raised, it would insure permanency in this kinship placement, keep the family warm, comfortable and able to cook meals, as well as take a huge burden off of their shoulders mentally.

Critical Request
Mother and child are in a center which is an inpatient treatment where moms can take their children. This mother is almost at 4 months and will be graduating on 2/17 and was accepted into transitional housing, but the only barrier is that they request she be up to date with her court fees and have her license reinstated before acceptance. Mom has been given a day pass to go with worker on 2/2 to handle this and will need $350 for license reinstatement and two $50 payments ; one of them will be to the city and the other will be for State. Please help me make this a smooth transition for mom and baby boy

Foster parent's washer went out before Christmas. FP has a baby and a 10-year-old foster child and is not able to easily take their clothes to the laundry. She is not able to buy one at this time, so she asked if we knew of any places that donated to foster families. I went to some outlet stores to see what was available, but if you don't buy them immediately, they are gone. I have priced them at Lowe's and Hahn appliances and the least expensive that I found are between 500.00 and 600.00 and that is without tax or whatever fees they add on. Ideally someone might have one they no longer need that they would be willing to part with. Thank you so much for all that you do for Oklahoma's children.

A kinship family has recently taken placement of 5 siblings. They have not yet received their stipend and are working hard to provide for the children's needs. The addition of these children has placed a financial strain on the family. They currently have an ONG bill that will be due soon that they need help paying. The bill is for $288.33 and would bring the family current with ONG. Please consider helping this family as they work hard to keep the siblings together and meet their needs in their home. Thank you!

Kinship foster parents took placement of their nephew and niece. The family are still working on becoming an approved foster placement so that foster stipend can begin. The niece has many health issues and is required to go to the OU Children's Medical Center in OKC for her intensive doctor appointments. The family has been providing the gas for many past appointments to OKC. The family has also transported the niece to her weekly physical, occupational, and speech therapy, which are 60 miles away roundtrip. This permanency worker would like to advocate on behalf of the family in securing a gas card to help with the many medical appointments for the child. The family has been providing all the needs for the children without any financial assistance for many months. The family would benefit greatly if a church would commit to assisting with their greatest need at this time.

Thank you for your time in reading this. I am a foster care worker for a family who has placement of two children, ages 15 and 10. The foster parents are respectfully asking for help with some of their basic bills. After taking placement of the children they got behind on some of them and are playing catch up. Any help will be greatly appreciated so they can get back on track and focus on the children's needs. The following bills are request: PSO: $220, Cell Phone $262, Cox $150 (necessary because oldest child is being homeschooled), Car Insurance $232, and two loans which were taken out to get the children what they needed when placement was made. Those loans are $100 and $200. Payoffs are $601 and $667 respectively. Thank you for your time and considerations to this request.

DHS is currently working with a family that is falling on hard times. The mother is a single mother of two children in her home. She had been having to take time off of work in order to get her child psychiatric help. With her child now receiving that psychiatric help, she is back to working as much as she can. Unfortunately, when there is only one income, bills pile up and it is hard to get back on track. The family does not have any heat or hot water in the home because of the gas bill being so high and them not having the extra money to pay it. Their gas has been shut off. This mother is doing everything that she can to provide for her children and is needing extra help with paying her gas bill so they can have heat back. With the weather being really cold, it is crucial that families have heat the family does not develop sickness or be really cold. The mother owes 572.98 on her gas bill. It is through Oklahoma Natural Gas. Please help out this family that is desperate to have heat in their home and hot water to shower. Thank you!

Two amazing pre teen girls are in the process of being adopted by their paternal aunt, the only thing standing in the way is that she needs to finalize her divorce before the adoption can go through. She has been making payments to start the process but she could use assistance in getting it paid off so that these girls can finally be adopted and know that they really have achieved permanency.

I have a 16 year old expecting a child in July. She is in need of clothing to accommodate her changing/growing body. She is usually a size small in shirts and medium 10/12 in pants. If you have any maternity clothing or able to provide a gift card for her to purchase some clothing, she would be greatly appreciative. I am putting the amount as $75, but she of course will be happy with any amount.

Help Support a Youth Aging Out

Normal Request
A youth (female) who will be aging out in April was just diagnosed with temporomandibular disorder (TMJ). The dentist has recommended she wear a mouth guard at night to help with the effects (such as headaches) from the TMJ. Soonercare has advised they will not pay for the mouth guard. Her transition team is trying to make sure this youth has everything she needs before April. Assistance with getting this mouth guard would help her be able to focus on the bigger things, like college and transitioning into adulthood, and help relieve the stress of how she can meet this need.

Help Make a Foster Care Placement

High Urgency Request
Mother of three has taken placement of four children who are related to her. These children were removed from their past placement and in need of immediate care. Maintaining this placement would keep the children near family and reduce the trauma of relocation. In order to effectively keep them in her care she is in need of transportation that would accommodate all seven children, two of which are still in car seats and one in need of a booster seat. She currently drives a car that seats five and is unable to coordinate transportation to and from school or even take everyone out for fast food. DHS is hoping to at least be able to assist foster mom with a significant down payment or tax and title for her to purchase a vehicle that would meet their needs. However ideas for assistance of any type would be welcome.

This is for a relative kinship home. The family has 2 boys, ages 1 and 2 and they are in need of both diapers and pull ups. The 2 year old is just now being introduced to pull ups and is not in them full time. They need pampers size 5 and 7 and Pull ups size 4/5 T. The Price estimate is based on Walmart prices for a an estimate of approximately $40 per package. The children have very sensitive skin so please get the Pampers brand as that is what is known to be safe for them. The price count is based on the cheapest per diaper for Walmart and if that is too much a smaller count size will be acceptable. While Diaper wipes were not requested and not included in the price, I am sure those would be greatly appreciated.
