Foster parents are asking for help with a specialty formula for a three month old baby who is having trouble eating and WIC does not cover that specialty formula in order to help continue baby’s weight gain. So far, after switching to this formula, the baby has consistently gained weight at an appropriate rate, however the problem is that it is tough to find and very expensive. Foster parents have drove around to Oklahoma City, Arkansas, and Locust Grove to secure some since this baby came into care. The baby is placed with adopted sibling and has had issues from birth, but the foster parents have done a great job looking after this baby and making sure the baby’s developmental needs are met. The specialty formula is “Enfamil AR (added rice).” FM asked for reimbursement of $250 and/or cans of formula. Anything would help this foster family care for this baby. Worker put 12 cans, however foster parents will take any help since this baby will be taking this formula for a while.

Hello there! I am reaching out for assistance for a prospective adoptive family who has been the foster care placement for a 7-year-old for the past 10 months. The child has grown incredibly close to the family and they have worked tirelessly to ensure that she feels safe, loved, and free to express herself without fear of judgment or rejection. Over the past few months, the child's behaviors have become increasingly more concerning- to the point where the family recently had to have their dog euthanized as a result of the child's abusive behaviors toward it. The family was under the impression that the child had learned from the incident and that it would not happen again, however, she was recently observed abusing their other dogs while in the backyard playing. The family also recently welcomed twins into the family and there are some concerns for their safety. Because of this, the family is requesting financial assistance with purchasing a camera system for their backyard (to ensure that the child as well as their dogs remain safe) along with two motion-activated door sensors that can be placed on the doors of the child and the newborn twins. Any assistance with these needs that you may be able to provide would be immensely appreciated. This family does not wish to give up on the child, they just need some help with implementing additional security measures. Thank you again for your time and consideration!

This request is for a family that started fostering in 2021. Right away, they excepted a sibling set of three kids because the family did not want the children to be separated. They knew there were going to be many sacrifices because there wasn’t enough room for each child to have their own room including their own child. However, they were determined to make it work because they wanted these children to stay together in order for them to overcome their traumatic experiences. It has been a rough couple of years with limited space, but recently an opportunity came up and they were able to find a bigger home that would provide each child with their own bedroom. This is something that the foster children have never experienced and now will have an opportunity to know what that is like, be a little more “normal”. They are now in need of 3 dressers for the children.
Kinship foster family needs assistance obtaining a baby gate to be in compliance with the foster care approval process. The family needs a "wood banister & stair safety gate". Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as the family has had to spend a lot of personal funds to baby proof their home before they've been approved.

Parents need your help paying the summer camp fee of $675 in order to provide a positive peer opportunity for their 14 year old son with other disabled children.
