We have a couple who is currently caring for their granddaughter in a kinship placement. They are the sweetest folks and really have been a great placement for their granddaughter. Recently, with the rising prices, they have struggled financially and have fallen behind on their gas bill. Grandpa recently had surgery to repair a very old back injury, and though he is doing much better, he will not be released to work for sometime due to him normally doing manual labor type jobs. Grandma is employed, but like a lot of people, money is tight and goes to other necessities as well. They are currently behind on their gas bill for a total of $297.31. If this money was able to be raised, it would insure permanency in this kinship placement, keep the family warm, comfortable and able to cook meals, as well as take a huge burden off of their shoulders mentally.

I have a family of 5 living with no water. They stated that when they moved into the home there was a balance from the previous tenant and they have been unable to keep up with it and now it is shut off. There are three children under the age of 4 in this home who are having to leave to get water and take shower and carry it back and forth. The parents have little support and we have emailed out for Tribal assistance and have not had luck hearing back.
Mother and child are in a center which is an inpatient treatment where moms can take their children. This mother is almost at 4 months and will be graduating on 2/17 and was accepted into transitional housing, but the only barrier is that they request she be up to date with her court fees and have her license reinstated before acceptance. Mom has been given a day pass to go with worker on 2/2 to handle this and will need $350 for license reinstatement and two $50 payments ; one of them will be to the city and the other will be for State. Please help me make this a smooth transition for mom and baby boy

Kinship foster parents took placement of their nephew and niece. The family are still working on becoming an approved foster placement so that foster stipend can begin. The niece has many health issues and is required to go to the OU Children's Medical Center in OKC for her intensive doctor appointments. The family has been providing the gas for many past appointments to OKC. The family has also transported the niece to her weekly physical, occupational, and speech therapy, which are 60 miles away roundtrip. This permanency worker would like to advocate on behalf of the family in securing a gas card to help with the many medical appointments for the child. The family has been providing all the needs for the children without any financial assistance for many months. The family would benefit greatly if a church would commit to assisting with their greatest need at this time.
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.

Hello there. There is a small child on my caseload whose formula allowance with WIC was reduced and the family is having to purchase multiple cans a month to make up the difference. This has become very costly and they could use some assistance. The type of formula the child uses is Gerber Good Start Gentle Complete Nutrition. The family was hoping to get 7 or 8 cans so that they would have enough to get them through the next month or so. Thank you so much in advance for your time and consideration. Also, when looking online in order to specify a price range for this need, there was a fairly broad range so if you are able to find the formula for a better price please just ignore the estimate amount that I provided.
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.
I have a dad who is working towards reunification with his daughter. He could use assistance with food to ensure he is able to feed his daughter during visits. Additionally, I would like to request a family membership to the zoo or the aquarium so that he can visit outside the home.

Please help us strengthen this single mother by assisting her with paying her court fines. This single mother has overcome her addiction to alcohol and is maintaining her sobriety by attending treatment.

Please help this mom cover her court fines so she can get her driver's license.
A 10 month old baby boy was recently placed in a newly certified foster home who has not received their first foster care payment. The baby is higher on the growth chart for his age and has outgrown the current car seat. The child is now in need of a 5 point car seat so he can be transported safely and for the placement to be maintained.
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.
