Help Improve a Child's Well-being

Normal Request
I have a family that is battling bedbugs and the kids are not allowed to carry their books and belongings to school. The children are itching constantly. They are being made fun of at school and it is affecting their mental well being. They believe they got them from grandmas home so, to prevent reinfestation it would be in the best interest to also do grandmas small home. This is a single mom and her elderly grandfather and her three children. She does not have much support or help. Grandmas home is Grandma, Her daughter and a smaller child. Moms home is about 200Sqft.

Foster parent's washer went out before Christmas. FP has a baby and a 10-year-old foster child and is not able to easily take their clothes to the laundry. She is not able to buy one at this time, so she asked if we knew of any places that donated to foster families. I went to some outlet stores to see what was available, but if you don't buy them immediately, they are gone. I have priced them at Lowe's and Hahn appliances and the least expensive that I found are between 500.00 and 600.00 and that is without tax or whatever fees they add on. Ideally someone might have one they no longer need that they would be willing to part with. Thank you so much for all that you do for Oklahoma's children.

Thank you for your time in reading this. I am a foster care worker for a family who has placement of two children, ages 15 and 10. The foster parents are respectfully asking for help with some of their basic bills. After taking placement of the children they got behind on some of them and are playing catch up. Any help will be greatly appreciated so they can get back on track and focus on the children's needs. The following bills are request: PSO: $220, Cell Phone $262, Cox $150 (necessary because oldest child is being homeschooled), Car Insurance $232, and two loans which were taken out to get the children what they needed when placement was made. Those loans are $100 and $200. Payoffs are $601 and $667 respectively. Thank you for your time and considerations to this request.

This home has placement of 2 month old twins, and they are needing an additional crib for the babies. They have room and space for another crib. When they took placement they had accepted a crib off of Care Portal, but it never got to them. Not sure who put the request on, but this is a new request to help this family out with a crib.

DHS is currently working with a family that is falling on hard times. The mother is a single mother of two children in her home. She had been having to take time off of work in order to get her child psychiatric help. With her child now receiving that psychiatric help, she is back to working as much as she can. Unfortunately, when there is only one income, bills pile up and it is hard to get back on track. The family does not have any heat or hot water in the home because of the gas bill being so high and them not having the extra money to pay it. Their gas has been shut off. This mother is doing everything that she can to provide for her children and is needing extra help with paying her gas bill so they can have heat back. With the weather being really cold, it is crucial that families have heat the family does not develop sickness or be really cold. The mother owes 572.98 on her gas bill. It is through Oklahoma Natural Gas. Please help out this family that is desperate to have heat in their home and hot water to shower. Thank you!

Two amazing pre teen girls are in the process of being adopted by their paternal aunt, the only thing standing in the way is that she needs to finalize her divorce before the adoption can go through. She has been making payments to start the process but she could use assistance in getting it paid off so that these girls can finally be adopted and know that they really have achieved permanency.

I have a 16 year old expecting a child in July. She is in need of clothing to accommodate her changing/growing body. She is usually a size small in shirts and medium 10/12 in pants. If you have any maternity clothing or able to provide a gift card for her to purchase some clothing, she would be greatly appreciative. I am putting the amount as $75, but she of course will be happy with any amount.

This was a new relative kinship placement from last week. This foster parent took placement of their 14 mo granddaughter during an emergency situation. The family is needing a crib and a car seat for the 14 month old child in their home. Obtaining these items will also be helpful to the child's parents if they are able to reunify. Please let me know if this is something that can be met. Thank you!

Help Make a Foster Care Placement

High Urgency Request
Mother of three has taken placement of four children who are related to her. These children were removed from their past placement and in need of immediate care. Maintaining this placement would keep the children near family and reduce the trauma of relocation. In order to effectively keep them in her care she is in need of transportation that would accommodate all seven children, two of which are still in car seats and one in need of a booster seat. She currently drives a car that seats five and is unable to coordinate transportation to and from school or even take everyone out for fast food. DHS is hoping to at least be able to assist foster mom with a significant down payment or tax and title for her to purchase a vehicle that would meet their needs. However ideas for assistance of any type would be welcome.

This is for a relative kinship home. The family has 2 boys, ages 1 and 2 and they are in need of both diapers and pull ups. The 2 year old is just now being introduced to pull ups and is not in them full time. They need pampers size 5 and 7 and Pull ups size 4/5 T. The Price estimate is based on Walmart prices for a an estimate of approximately $40 per package. The children have very sensitive skin so please get the Pampers brand as that is what is known to be safe for them. The price count is based on the cheapest per diaper for Walmart and if that is too much a smaller count size will be acceptable. While Diaper wipes were not requested and not included in the price, I am sure those would be greatly appreciated.

This need is for a mother and child who have recently reunified. The mother frequently rides her bike or takes the bus. This one child bike trailer/stroller would allow her child to not have to walk so far to catch the bus and enable her to take the bike when necessary. The one that I found to be the best bargain is at Walmart and is the Allen Sports Deluxe 2-Child Bicycle Trailer & Stroller. It does not need to be this specific brand and can be donated one that is donated rather than purchased new.
