A foster family received a new placement 4 days ago, and unfortunately the child did not bring any clothes or shoes. The foster mom says that her clothing size is 12/14 girls size, and size 7 in shoes. Foster mom also stated that the child's biggest need is jeans/pants. Any help or assistance for this foster family would be a huge blessing for them and the child.
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!
The natural father is the person needing assistance. The natural father needs assistance with paying for his assessment with Connections Counseling Group for BIP. The assessment will evaluate the natural father and then inform him of their recommendations.
The payment should be made out to Connections Counseling Group.
The natural mother and the natural father. The need is for assistance with transportation to be able to work, attend services, and family time visits. The natural mother and the natural father will be able to see their child(ren) for family time and attend services with providers.
Both natural parents. The natural parents are in need for bus passes to be able to attend their treatment service plans. Both of the natural parents would be able to attend both visitation and work toward correcting the condition that led to their minor child's removal.
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.
Maternal grandmother/Foster mother in need of gas car. Foster Mother uses van to transport medically fragile foster child to and from appointments. Van takes about $50 to fill up. Any help would be much appreciated!
I have a family in Wagoner County that is in need of some essentials. They are a kinship home that just recently opened. They initially took in one child and now they are adding an additional child to the home to keep the sibling group together. They are fully approved and do not receive maintenance payments so anything help. The family stated that they are in need of help with groceries to get through until they can start receiving payments to help with the financial burden it has taken to feed two additional mouths. The family wants to keep the siblings together and also want to ensure they are receiving adequate care. The family is also in need of bunk beds for the children as well. As stated before anything helps.
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.
Please help strengthen this single mother of three. This single mother is soon to deliver a new baby in a week and is currently out of work. Please help us strengthen this single mom by paying her cell phone bill this month.
A mother of a newborn is needing help with consistent transportation that can help her get to her family time visits each week. An uber gift card would be ideal since the bus route would not be practical for her situation.
I have a dad who is working towards reunification with his daughter. He could use assistance with food to ensure he is able to feed his daughter during visits. Additionally, I would like to request a family membership to the zoo or the aquarium so that he can visit outside the home.
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.
This was a new relative kinship placement from last week. This foster parent took placement of their 14 mo granddaughter during an emergency situation. The family is needing a crib and a car seat for the 14 month old child in their home. Obtaining these items will also be helpful to the child's parents if they are able to reunify. Please let me know if this is something that can be met.
Hi there! I have a non-paid kinship placement that is in need of some financial assistance. They have fallen behind on some bills and would greatly benefit from any help that you may be able to provide. Again, this is a non-paid kinship placement and they have been such a blessing to the girls placed in their care. Any help you may be able to provide would immensely appreciated. Thank you so much in advance for your time and consideration!
Please help us strengthen this single mother by assisting her with paying her court fines. This single mother has overcome her addiction to alcohol and is maintaining her sobriety by attending treatment. However, in the midst of her addiction she accrued several fines that resulted in her license being suspended. She is now having trouble getting to and from services as well as having trouble accomplishing daily parental duties as her driver's license has been suspended. Please help this mom cover her court fines so she can get her driver's license.
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.
