Working to help foster parents cover damages sustained to their plumbing as a result of a special needs child flushing items down the toilet. Parent had to call a plumber out the day before their wedding. Plumber attempted to clear the system but plumbing will require additional repair. Estimated between $400-$800, to be assessed further as repair continues. This estimate includes $250 already paid for the inspection and clearing attempt. OKDHS would like to help assist the family with these unexpected costs associated with providing care to a child with special needs. Child in the home has autism and has recently taken to playing with the toilet. 3 Total foster children reside in the home, including a set of siblings.

I have a Family in need of assistance with moving. I have a mom, a 2 year old, a 5 year old, and a oxygen-dependent elderly woman. The family is working on moving into an apartment that better fits the needs of the size of their family as well as expanding the size of the apartment to better help the oxygen-dependent woman get around. The family was informed they have two days to come up with the rental deposit or they will lose the apartment. The current conditions of all the stuff in boxes is creating a hazard for the children and the elderly individual. This request would help correct the conditions of current home and prevent the need for these children to come in to foster care at this time. This is a single mother with limited support.

I am currently working with a family with a newborn and a two year old. All adults are disabled and cannot provide additional income to the family. Having a two year old and a newborn is laundry demanding. This family washer broke and they are having to go to the laundry mat. Each trip to the laundry mat is costing a little over twenty dollars. For this family, $80 per month is taking away from basic needs. This family would appreciate any shape of washer as long as it works. I do have a truck and can help with delivery if needed. Updated on September 20, 2022 by an Agency Worker
The family is willing to accept a working used washer also. I have a truck I can help deliver if needed.

This child was recently placed in this county along with a new school away from her home. At first she was having troubles being in a new place away from home, but she is starting to get adjusted. She informed the worker she is wanting to run for homecoming and is wanting a dress in order to wear the dress to. The child would be very grateful to have a dress because the one dress she has no longer fits her. She does not have a specific dress she is wanting yet because she has not tried anything on and is unsure of her size.

Critical Request
Client in need includes natural mother and her two year old son. Natural mother is engaged in family time with her son and is dedicated to reunifying with him. However she does struggle with poverty and lack of transportation. She would love to attend her necessary treatment services but struggles finding a way to get there. Helping this mother with transportation via uber assistance would go a long way in ensuring she attends treatment which would assist her in reunifying with her son. Her and her son have a strong, loving bond so reunification for this case is key and lack of transportation right now is a major barrier.

Two foster children are entering new placement and are in need of a bunk bed, 2 mattresses, and bedding. The two teenage girls have moved around from home to home, and unfortunately do not have any sheets, blankets, pillows, or other bedding for themselves. The girls will be sharing a room with each other and would benefit from having a bunk bed (and mattresses) in order to save space.

Hello! I have a father who is in need of an assessment at DVIS! This father has fell on some hard times with his truck breaking down and losing his employment. Due to this he does not have the money for the initial assessment which is $95 dollars. I am in the process of getting him a bus pass but it would be extremely helpful if his assessment could be paid for as it is part of his service plan. If anyone is able to help out this Dad it would be much appreciated! Thank you!

My client is a single father who lives with his great grandmother and the grandmother has been paying all the bills while her grandson works his DHS case. His two, 2 year old twin children are in Trial Reunification with the father and he is a wonderful, loving father to his children. However, the father has struggled with maintaining employment. The great grandmother has supported him and the children for the past year and has run into financial struggles due to this. She has asked DHS for help with her rent this month. Her rent is $650. DHS is hoping two churches could split the cost and pay $325 each. This grandmother will do anything for her grandchildren. She is so embarrassed that she had to ask for help as she has always been able to pay her rent. Thank you in advance for helping this family.

I have a foster family who has had placement of a 2 1/2 year old most of her life. They recently took placement of her one year old brother. Foster family is asking for a double stroller to help get these children around. This is especially important as the one year old is not really walking well yet and is quite heavy.

Worker spoke with a biological mother who the department is working on reunifying a 15 year old child with her mother. Biological mother has done everything asked of her by the department which includes multiple UAs and services. All of this have been recommended and not court ordered. Biological mother is willing to do anything asked of her in order for her child to return home. She is needing additional assistance such as a dryer. Her dryer went out and she does not have the funds to buy another one. She is also needing a lock box and a medication divider. This is to help with her 15 year old daughter medication once she is placed in the home so that her daughter takes it as prescribed and not as any self- harm attempts like she has done in the past.

I am currently working with a family who has taken in their infant cousin for a kinship placement. The infant is doing very well in this home and is ready to start daycare. However, this kinship foster mother has been unable to find a child care facility that has an opening for an infant that will accept the DHS stipend. Therefore, at this time, this foster mother is paying out of pocket for child care costs for her infant foster daughter; additionally, this foster mother has three teenagers of her own that are involved in extracurricular activities, so adding in the expense of child care when it was not planned has been a strain on them. DHS is making attempts to help as much as possible financially until this foster family begins receiving their monthly stipend to help care for the child by covering other bills so they can more easily afford daycare services as well. This family could use assistance with their water bill, electric bill, and their natural gas bill. Water Bill: $210.89, Electric Bill: $201.00, and ONG bill: $89.00. Any help assisting this family would be very much appreciated!
