A foster mom of 3 children under the age of 8 was gracious enough to open her home for her cousins’ 17 year old daughter to give this child a home until she is able to graduate high school and eventually transitions to a technical school. Foster mother is currently in 18 month program; which cause her to have to drive more as of lately to not only transport herself but also her 3 children and her cousin’s 17 year old daughter to and from school. The 17 year old has been through tremendous amount of trauma but, she finally feels safe and happy with her current foster mom; however foster mom recently had her driver’s license suspended due to tickets. The suspension is cause issue with her being able to drive her car legally while transporting. Foster mother is relaying on her sister to help; which is creating a strain because her sister has responsibilities as well. Blessing her with the financial help she desperately needs would benefit her chances at providing a healthier and safer life for 17 year old and foster mothers’ 3 children.

The mom on this case has her three children in her home with her and is involved with us due to domestic violence with her child's father. She has successfully identified and secured a new apartment for herself and her children that would allow them a new address that her abuser does not know and was notified yesterday that the complex has an available home that they could move in to as soon as Monday. However, this mom is on disability for issues with her back and spine and does not have a local support system in place. She is unable with her current resources to move herself and her children in to her upstairs apartment. She needs help moving from her home near Admiral and memorial to her new apartment in Broken Arrow. Help for this request could be financial, and we could hire a mover... or if there was a local group that had vehicles and manpower that was willing to help her do this she would be so appreciative.

The foster parent takes the child to and from school daily and to medical and therapeutic appointments during the week. Any assistance with obtaining a gas card and groceries to help support this family would be greatly appreciated.
