We have a father, who is hoping to reunify with his two children. He currently lives in a hotel. We are asking for financial assistance to pay for one-week's lodging to help him afford a deposit on an apartment.
The family needs assistance with an enrollment fee of $250 dollars to be able secure a place in a preschool for the 5 year old female child. The school district does not allow the Pre-K class to ride the bus to and from school. Both parents in the home work full time and would be unable to pick the child up from school everyday. To help maintain the placement funds are needed to help pay the enrollment fee to secure the place in the preschool. The family has already been off work due to not knowing this information at the time of the placement last week regarding the school not allowing Pre-K to ride the bus.
We have a paternal grandmother who has taken placement of her 4 grandchildren recently. The two kiddos have been sharing a bed but they are 5 and 6 and need their own beds to help build confidence. Foster mom is a single mother who has been doing great work with the kiddos and bridging with mom, but she needs a little support. These bunk beds will also follow the children if and when they are returned home to their mother. Anything will be appreciated and will help this grandma out!!
Please help us preserve this kinship placement. Grandma has taken in her three grandchildren unexpectedly, and is in need of a twin bed frame and mattress. This will help this 12yr old child as he is having issues with his back due to sleeping on a cot.
Baby boy is beginning to crawl around the house and pull up on furniture. His great aunt and uncle are keeping him safe in their home but its been years since they had curious little ones around. It would be a great help for them if they received donations of safety items and child-proofing materials. Any and all assistance is appreciated! Outlet covers, Furniture mounts, Toilet seat lock, Cabinet locks, Knob covers.
I have a mom and dad who are attempting to get custody back of their child. They currently have a disconnect for 3/22 for their electric in the amount of $299. They also owe $240 to ONG and need assistance to pay it.
Bio mom in need of gas card in order to attend Family Time with two children in Marlow, Ok. She will be driving down early on MARCH 25. Mom is in the process of reunification with her children and only gets to visit them twice/month. Any help is greatly appreciated!
I have a 18 year old male that is currently in school and due to him just aging out of DHS custody. He is learning the ropes behind adulting and is in the middle of waiting for food stamps to verify him as an adult not a minor in DHS custody. Due to the cumbersome process. I am asking for $200 worth of food and toiletries for the young man while we get his SNAP Benefits and Custody info changed and verified. Thank you.
I have a bio mom who is currently in trial reunification with one of her kids. She has 2 more kids that she is working on getting home also. She is in need of assistance with her high electric bill. The total amount due on 3/21/23 is $563.27. This mother has been making progress towards reunification with her kids and meeting this need would help her tremendously.
Hello. I have a young mother who does not have transportation, needing a buss pass in order to get to her scheduled appointments with her children and her DHS appointed service providers. A bus pass would be very helpful to her.
Single mother of 3, ages 8 through 13, who is successfully working toward reunification is currently struggling to make ends meet. Mother is interviewing with multiple employers but is seeking an overnight position to be available for her children during the day. Due to the children’s special needs there are occasions they must be picked up early from school due to disruptive behaviors. The electric bill is currently past due with a balance of $268. If her electric gets cut off an additional fee will be charged to reconnect, making it harder for her to become financially stable. The homes primary source of cooling and heating are electrically powered and this would create a challenge to maintain hygiene and prepare meals.
I have a family that was in a recent car wreck and is needing a new convertible car seat. She has been talking to the insurance company but as of right now since she was at fault they have not covered the car seat. The car was in a roll over accident and everyone is ok but she is needing a new carseat to transport safely. The family has recently moved and have had more expenses than normal. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. The minor child is 5 months and is a male. Thank you.
Sibling group of 5, ages 2-12 are celebrating the birthday of the youngest child. The children are currently placed in three separate homes. To allow the children an opportunity to create positive memories with one another a request in the amount of $132 is being made for incredible pizza or another child/family friendly establishment in the Tulsa Area
A foster family that is taking care of a 3 year old boy whose current mattress is causing him to be uncomfortable since it has been worn down. The family had several expensive things breaks down on them over the past few months that they are having to put all their financial resources towards such as a refrigerator break down and both of their vehicles breaking down at the same time and needing costly repairs that are several thousand dollars worth. They would greatly appreciate the help with a new twin sized mattress for their foster child so that is one less expense they have to come up with the money for.
I have a family who was recently experiencing homelessness due to domestic violence. They rushed into a housing situation to get out of homelessness and it was not a healthy environment. This family has a child who is recovering from brain cancer, due to the sensitive nature of his health he can’t be exposed to unhealthy living. The landlord was not willing to fix the issue and they are being forced to find another home, they will have to be out of the current house by the 21st of March. The family has found another home to move into and has paid the deposit. The family has income coming in but it only stretches to cover the current bills. Mom has not been able to work due to her son cancer but now that he is on the mend she is looking to get back to work soon. The family was able to come up with most of the rent they are needing. However they are a little short and are needing help with the final amount. This family has worked really hard to overcome all the obstacle put in their way. By getting this help it will allow this family to finally be back on track to be independent and it will get then into healthy living environment.
We have a single mother trying to raise three kids. One of which has severe violent behavior issues. The mother had to quit her job due to her kid's behavior. She has not been able to work in the last two months. Therefore, the mother has fallen behind on her mortgage payments and is needing help with paying her mortgage. Please consider helping this parent get back on her feet, any amount of assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I have a little girl on my caseload who was recently diagnosed with a kidney condition. She is currently in the hospital and her discharge date is unknown at this time. The resource parent is making multiple trips to the hospital daily and has had to take time off from work. This is an unpaid placement and these extra expenses are difficult. I would like to request the following items to bless this family and help them through this hard time. Two boxes of Pampers diapers size 5 and size 6. The kidney condition has caused the little girl to swell and the size she needs has fluctuated. She has very sensitive skin and Pampers seem to work the best. A Kindle Fire Tablet with toddler safe case from Amazon. The little girl loves to play on the tablet and watch shows like Peppa Pig. The tablet would help occupy her time at the hospital when she isn’t sleeping. Assistance with expenses like gas and food would be greatly appreciated. The sibling of the little girl is being brought to the hospital daily and they are spending a lot of money on gas and eating dinner in the hospital cafeteria.
Pampers size 5 $45
Pampers size 6 $45
Amazon Kindle Fire with childproof case $99-$130
Gas money $100
Money for hospital Cafeteria $100
I have some diapers size 5 left and some llama wipes. It’s not an entire box but it will help some!

This family is in need of a high back booster seat. While she takes the bus most places and is not able to use a car seat, she is provided transportation through LyFT services, or programs she is taking provides transportation and she is required to provide the car seat. The girl is a tall four year old but is still in need of a high back booster seat due to over all size.
This mom and child are in trial reunification and dependent on the bus. She has multiple services throughout town that she is required to get to, in addition to getting food for her family. A bus pass would be helpful for her to be able to do to this and take one more thing off her shoulders to worry about.
