I have a mom who has recently reunified with her three children, all of whom are teenage/preteen. She is currently employed part time receiving about $200 per week.

A sweet family agreed to take placement of four children that they didn't know. They were sought out because they had fostered in the past and reopened without any financial assistance to provide emergency care. They were not told originally that any of the children had lice. The children arrived at the home, and the family was told two of the children had lice, but they had been treated. They were told there were no lice or eggs found on the other two children. All children had a severe infestation of lice. The family worked for two days to rid the lice with chemical lice treatments. They were told that Lice Clinics of America (LCA) accepts Soonercare. However, this was also incorrect. They discount for Soonercare, but the cost for the treatment is still very expensive. The family took money assigned for other bills to rid the lice at LCA under the impression that DHS would reimburse them. The cost of the lice treatment was $566. The family is in need of this money back for their bills. They owe $407 to PSO, $70.79 to ONG, and $290 to the City of Sand Springs. We are only asking for enough to be paid towards the bills to offset the amount paid for the lice treatment $566. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We are currently working with a mom who has found a stable home for her and her two kids (ages 1 and 5). She was approved for the home, but just needs help with her deposit so she can move in as soon as as possible. Mom just returned home from completing her out-of-state treatment, so does not have the ability to come up with the deposit in the time needed. She is needing assistance with the large deposit of $500. This home means a lot to her. It will allow her to have a stable place to reside while she secures a job that gives her a steady, reliable income and allows for her to maintain the home. She is looking forward to engaging in the rest of her services and is hopeful to being reunified with her children. If you feel that you can assist in any way, even partially, I would be happy to connect you to mom.

A single father has been working very hard to have his children back with him. He has been working full time and successfully completing his services. He visits with them as often as possible and his children want nothing more than to be back with him full time. He has been living out of a hotel up until now which was standing in the way of reunification. He has been able to find an apartment and is needing help with his deposit and first month's rent in order to get set up and work toward getting his children moved back with him.

A young single mother has started her life from scratch and has been living at the Salvation Army for several months. She has been working so hard and has completed nearly all of her services, is working two jobs, spends several hours a day on the bus to get to work, and has been visiting as often as possible with her daughter. The only thing preventing her from progressing toward reunification is having a safe and stable place to live. She has secured an apartment for herself and placed down a deposit but she needs help with first and last month's rent. Any help would be immensely appreciated.

Hello, we have a teenager who is needing specialized cognitive testing. The cheapest I have found is $200, because insurance will not cover this need. We are asking for this $200, in order for this child to receive the help she needs. This child is soon to age out so, time is of the essence. We are wanting to give her the best foundation we can as she transition into adulthood. Thank you for your time. The donor will call the child's doctor and pay directly to their facility. Worker can share those details at the time of gifting. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this request.

Hello! We have a kinship placement that is needing assistance at this time. The foster parent has reliable work and transportation, but has been overwhelmed with the cost of supporting two young children while waiting on her approval and first monthly claim. With the rising costs of both gas and groceries, I think we can all understand the challenges they are facing! Assisting with this request would help insure consistency for the children by remaining in their current kinship placement.

I have a kinship family, foster mom and dad, who has placement of their three godchildren, ages 16, 11, and 6. The foster mother is the only driver in the home. They only have one vehicle. The foster father is actively working on getting his driver's license so he can help with transporting the children. These three children are thriving with these foster parents. They have been through a lot of trauma and are doing quite well. The 16 year old in particular has really grown and thrived. She is making straight A's and has many goals set for herself. The foster mother has the children in excellent schools to meet their needs and needs a way to transport them to and from school as well as get to work herself. On Tuesday, 09/28/2023, the foster mom and two of the children were in a car accident. They are physically fine but the car was seriously damaged. If you happen to have a car you could donate to this family we would be eternally grateful. We thank you in advance and God Bless.
