Foster father recently lost his job due to a medical issue. He is having short term memory loss and is unable to go back to work until he completes further testing. Foster family currently has a cut off notice for their electric bill. It was $500. They were able to pay $300 of it. I do have a copy of the bill and any funds donated can go directly to the electric company. Thank you.

Foster mother is need of help paying for daycare registration. Her husband recently lost his job due to medical reasons. He was on over the road truck driver and started suffering from short term memory loss. He was forgetting loads and the company let him go. He is now home and undergoing testing to see what is happening. The foster family is struggling financially due to the loss of foster dad's income. The daycare name can be provided by the worker and the money can be paid directly to the daycare. If the registration is not paid today the baby cannot return to daycare until the fee is paid.

We have a single local foster mom who has been providing emergency respite/placement for teens in need that would otherwise be spending nights in the office. She has opened up her home for well over 20 kiddos since she has been fostering and has been spending her own money to buy clothing and toiletries for teens that usually only have one set of clothing and often times even shoes that don't even fit. She will often take the children to Walmart to buy the children the essential items they need and can take with them while going home to home until permanent homes can be found. The foster mom and children would benefit greatly from any sort of donations such as Walmart/Walgreens gift cards so she can buy these teens clothing and essential toiletry items they need and can take with them.

Critical Request
Client in need includes natural mother and her two year old son. Natural mother is engaged in family time with her son and is dedicated to reunifying with him. However she does struggle with poverty and lack of transportation. She would love to attend her necessary treatment services but struggles finding a way to get there. Helping this mother with transportation via uber assistance would go a long way in ensuring she attends treatment which would assist her in reunifying with her son. Her and her son have a strong, loving bond so reunification for this case is key and lack of transportation right now is a major barrier.

Two foster children are entering new placement and are in need of a bunk bed, 2 mattresses, and bedding. The two teenage girls have moved around from home to home, and unfortunately do not have any sheets, blankets, pillows, or other bedding for themselves. The girls will be sharing a room with each other and would benefit from having a bunk bed (and mattresses) in order to save space.

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.

OKDHS is currently working with a young man who has exceeded the limit for replacement glasses this year that are covered by the Oklahoma Healthcare Authority. He would benefit from having a backup pair because he is all-boy and can be rough on them. Without his glasses, he squints and struggles to read, which would lead to issues in the classroom. There is currently a "bundle" deal going at a nearby eye doctor where you can get two pair of glasses (with bi-focals) for $140.07. We felt that this might be a great option to help him get through the remainder of the year! If you or a group could assist, we would be very grateful! Thanks so much!

Kirby: Is it possible to upload his rx and get the glasses from a website? Eyebuydirect.com or Zenni.com sells prescription kids glasses starting at around $20… just thought I would pass this on in case the family didn’t know??

This 15 year old has already been adopted 3 times and has been abandoned again. The family that is taking him was a previous placement for him in the state of Kansas. He was dropped off with nothing and they were not prepared to take a child. As of today he has been in an unapproved placement with the family due to technicalities of needing out of state checks completed. The family will not receive any financial relief for at least another 15 days as foster care hopes to have him in an official placement today. He needs uniforms for school: black or Khaki pants with no holes. Shirts: black, grey, red or white polos preferably long sleeve as the child has a issue with his arm that he prefers to cover. He can also wear anything Okmulgee spirt wear. He needs pajama pants or sweats, socks, underwear and tennis shoes.

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.

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.
