Foster parent had an accident and the other person did not have insurance so her insurance is going to repair her car. She has a $1,000.00 deductible. The car repair place said that they cannot get to it before 4 weeks so she has some time to procure the deposit. She only has the one vehicle so she needs it repaired. The drivers side door was crunched and has to be completely replaced as well as the driver's side mirror. Thank you.

I have a bio mom who has a medically fragile child that is in the OKC area and she lives in Tulsa. This mom is having a hard time going to visit her child at the hospital because she also has a 3 year old in the home. She is needing help with childcare for her 3 year old while she visits her 5 year old in the hospital. There are a couple drop-in daycares in the Tulsa area that we would like credits purchased for one of the daycares so she could drop the child off to visit the other child. The cost for a 3 year old would be $6.75 per hour. They also have the packages that would cost: $62 for 10 hours, $120 for 20 hours, $177 for 30 hours and $290 for 50 hours. Anything would help with mom to be able to go see her child.
Single mother has had her only transportation in the shop for replacement of transmission and she still owes $851 before they will let her have it back.

She has been making amazing progress and has just had this huge financial setback.
Worker is working towards a kinship placement that is in IL. The child has been having a hard time and his behaviors are escalating.

This visit will help maintain his current placement until the kinship home can be approved for placement as well as strengthening the bond with the kinship family. We are needing help with a gas card for the kinship family to travel back and forth several times to pick him up and to bring him back. Any amount would be greatly appreciated.

A 15 year old teenager was just placed in a shelter in Durant. She did not have any shoes when worker was half way to Durant. She will be starting school soon and is needing hair products, additional clothes and shoes.

After speaking with the shelter last night, they also stated there is a staff that can take our kiddo shopping as well for clothes or any products as long as she has the funds. Anything would be appreciative. I plan on taking her these things tomorrow 8/12/22. Since she is starting school, any school supplies and backpacks would go a long way for her educational needs.
