Help Preserve a Foster Care Placement

Normal Request
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.

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. One child who has very thick hair has to have it professionally treated at the lice clinic, as well as have a haircut. This is a major expense, along with all the continuing of washing. They will receive a discount for having Soonercare.

Normal Request
An adult sister has placement of her teenage sister and her biological 3-year-old daughter. Foster care payments have not started yet and the teen is eating a lot more and adding to the grocery and electric bills. Her current electric bill is $281. Any help with this older sister-turned-foster mom's electric bill would be a blessing for this family.

Help Prevent a Child From Entering Foster Care

High Urgency Request
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.

Help Reunify a Bio Family

Normal Request
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.

This request is to provide back to school clothing assistance for two children. The children will be attending Tulsa Public Schools where they will need uniforms and potentially school shoes. The children are the following; 9 year old girl, size 8/9 shirt and 6/7 pants ; 7 year old boy, size 7/8 shirt and 6 pants. Both children were recently placed in trial reunification with their natural mother after almost two years of being in a foster home. The family would welcome any assistance whether it was through purchased clothing items or a gift card. We would welcome any amount of financial assistance for the newly reunified family.

Please help a young mother with 4 children, including a newborn, with some gas to continue to keep doing her classes, UAs, and getting to work. We all know how high gas has been, and how it takes a bite out of our budget. She has had an amazing turnaround and is surprising those who know her with how well she is doing currently! Let's help her keep up the good work!

I have a foster mom who has recently taken placement of her nephew. She could use size 4 diapers, wipes, a crib, a stroller and a car seat. This foster mom has not been approved for foster care payment yet so any way she can get help will be greatly appreciated.
