A kinship foster mother who is the grandmother to teen child placed with her has two shut off notices. One shut off notice is for electric and one shut off notice is for her gas. She also owes back rent to her landlord. This foster mother is currently trying to become fully approved but has had to miss some of her training due to her car breaking down and she has had to use much of her money to repair her car. I have confirmed these needs by receiving copies of her shut off notices. If these needs aren't met the child may have to placed in a traditional home and not stay with his grandmother whom he has had a relationship with during his entire life.

We have a 3-year-old child that is currently having unsupervised visits with their father. The child is placed 90+ miles away from Tulsa and the father could use a help with gas expenses as the prices continue to rise. This father has been able to provide a home for him and his child and is waiting for Trial Reunification to begin while he makes multiple round trips to and from to see his child and is currently having overnight visits on Saturday's. Meeting this request will allow the father to continue to pick-up and drop-off his child on the weekends, help with a faster reunification date to occur and help maintain an attachment the father and child share with one another. Updated on September 27, 2023 by an Agency Worker Can we refresh this request as it is still needed?

We have the most wonderful kiddo in custody who has been looking for a family for a very long time. He went on a visit last weekend and the family fell in love with him and is willing to become his long term foster home! However, the family was not planning for this and has some needs that are required by foster care that we need to help them with. They have a bed and mattress but no box spring, however the ceiling in the room they plan to use is very low. We are needing help with a 4-6 inch twin sized box spring, 2 smoke detectors, and a fire extinguisher. Not having these things in the next few days will prevent this baby from being able to stay and will mean he has to return to the shelter. The family and I are so grateful in advance for your help for this very deserving kiddo.

Mom left Colorado with her three young children about 18 months ago, trying to get away from an abusive situation. After living in their car for a while, someone gave them a trailer to live in, where they only needed to pay lot rent. The trailer was full of junk, and in a state of disrepair, but Mom has worked hard, and managed to make the trailer safe for the children, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Mom has a car that wasn't running, so she scraped together money to buy a truck, but the head gasket blew on the way home. That has been repaired, but the truck is not in the least bit reliable. No transportation makes it impossible to find steady employment, and now her oldest son has broken two limbs (school playground mishap), and he will need to be transported to doctor's appointments. She has swallowed her pride, and asked for help from neighbors, but if she could get some assistance with repairs around the house, and reliable transportation, it would mean the world to her.

We have a foster parent who stepped up when a placement was desperately needed for a hard to place teenager. Our kiddo, when placed, was excited to tell the worker that he had a homemade meal for the first time in a long time! This foster parent has not been fully approved and has an issue with the gas bill. After taking care of our custody child without payment, the foster mom went ahead and took placement of the sibling. These two had not lived together since coming into custody two years ago! The foster parent has gone beyond the call of duty, even spending time at the hospital with our teenager while he had open heart surgery and did all the follow up requirements after the surgery that included him having to have an oxygen tank. This foster mom has helped these kiddos so much, please help us to now help her.

I have a dad who is attempting to reunify with his three children. He needs help paying his Cricket phone bill. This father works for himself so without access to a phone he has no way to make contact with his clients.
If a TWIN bed would work, I have that to give, and would be happy to get bedding and a mattress. But if they feel a toddler bed is better, I don't have that. Just let me know if they're interested in the TWIN.
Cornerstone Church. 2 weeks ago
I can provide a twin bed, with a mattress and bedding, and get a fold away bed rail for this bed.
I have a mom who is trying to get reunification of her four children. She and her spouse have split so she is trying to pay the rent of $1000 per month all by herself and she is receiving SSI.
