High Urgency Request
I have a family in Wagoner County that is in need of some essentials. They are a kinship home that just recently opened. They initially took in one child and now they are adding an additional child to the home to keep the sibling group together. They are fully approved and do not receive maintenance payments so anything help. The family stated that they are in need of help with groceries to get through until they can start receiving payments to help with the financial burden it has taken to feed two additional mouths. The family wants to keep the siblings together and also want to ensure they are receiving adequate care. The family is also in need of bunk beds for the children as well. As stated before anything helps.

Kinship foster parent needs help with an exterminator. They took placement of seven children, when the second bunch of children were placed in the home they brought roaches in with them.

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.

Seeking food assistance to preserve and strengthen a kinship family. This youth has been in custody for 7 years and DHS is now able to reunite him with his biological family. Youth is now placed with an aunt, uncle, and cousin, but they are not yet receiving foster care reimbursement and are struggling financially in this first month of placement. This assistance would help the youth and family focus on other needs while getting settled. Also, the youth has recently found out he loves to cook and is happy he is placed with family and able to help with meal preparations.

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.

Worker has a low income family that is in need of a bunk bed to help house their three girls in the same bedroom.

Hello there. I have a family who is in need of some assistance paying their water bill. Two weeks ago, one of their children (he is 2 years old with a birthday coming up in April) came down with a very bad case of RSV. He had to be hospitalized for 3 nights. As he began to recover, the rest of the household became ill. As a result, the family has faced some unforeseen financial hardships (caregivers missing work, multiple doctor's visits, paying for medications, etc.). This family would really appreciate any kind of help you may be able to provide at this time. Thank you so much in advance for your time and consideration!

I am working with a foster family who has placement of an 11 month old boy. He is becoming mobile, and the family has been able to obtain some safety devices for the home to help with physical safety. However, the foster family is still lacking a baby gate and has requested assistance in getting one. The space where the baby gate is needed is 90 inches in length, and would greatly help this family. We appreciate any assistance that can be offered.

I have a family who is attempting to get reunification of their three children. They could use assistance with heaters as they do not have heat in the home. Additionally, due to dad working lawn care, their income is very limited right now so they could use assistance with groceries. Also, they have a window in their home that needs replaced. They could use assistance with a new window and/or installation of the window.
