An aunt and uncle have recently taken kinship placement of three of their nieces, ages 11, 8, and 6. This family needs assistance with their current utilities. Their East Central Electric Cooperative electric bill is due on 9/22/2022 and totals $224.00 Their City of Muskogee water/sewer bill is due on 9/28/2022 and totals $81.83. I have account numbers to provide, once assistance for these needs is offered.

I am currently working with a father that has been working very hard to regain custody of his infant daughter along with her mother. He does have older children, however those children are not in his custody either, and he has expressed that he hope to do things differently with his new baby than he did with his older child. This father has been engaging in other classes and services that have been required of him to complete as well as continue to work. while this father has been working very hard right now he does need some support financially to help him pay for his domestic violence assessment and some of the classes. He does not deny that he needs to get help learning how to deal with his frustration and he is looking forward to getting additional help with that through safenet services. taking this assessment as well as the classes will ensure that his daughter and her mother will be in a safe and stable home environment. The assessment for Safenet services is $125.00. We appreciate any assistance that you can offer in helping this father pay for his assessment.

The family is asking that a week be covered. They currently have applications in at a number of different apartment complexes. They are just waiting to hear back.

We have a single local foster mom who has been providing emergency respite/placement for teens in need that would otherwise be spending nights in the office. She has opened up her home for well over 20 kiddos since she has been fostering and has been spending her own money to buy clothing and toiletries for teens that usually only have one set of clothing and often times even shoes that don't even fit. She will often take the children to Walmart to buy the children the essential items they need and can take with them while going home to home until permanent homes can be found. The foster mom and children would benefit greatly from any sort of donations such as Walmart/Walgreens gift cards so she can buy these teens clothing and essential toiletry items they need and can take with them.

I have a natural mother who is in need of assistance for gas to attend her court ordered services. The natural mother is currently expecting her second child. She reports having asthma has been having some medical issues recently. The natural mother was told about the free buses, but reports that when she walks to the bus stop she has been having breathing issues and ends up going to hospital for treatment. The natural mother does not have her own vehicle, but her partner does and both are currently on fixed incomes.
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.

A new foster parent, older in age, took placement of two teens who are infested with head lice. She is overwhelmed with all the washing and cleaning of the home.

They will receive a discount for having Soonercare.
