A tulsa county kinship family is in high need for assistance with their natural gas bill. Oklahoma Natural Gas has disconnected the family from their gas service, and the family has no additional funds to help pay for the outstanding bill. The family consists of a single mother, a son, and two foster children. Foster mom was unfortunately let go from her position at work due to unforseen circumstances, and has had difficulty securing a new position. She continues to be incredibly patient and flexible, and steps up to gain placement of additional relatives with no other place to go. The current outstanding balance is approximately $587. Any and all assistance in bringing this balance lower will be greatly appreciated and will help bring this family back to a sense of normalcy and well deserved comfort.

A mother and a father recently had a baby boy come into custody. They are involved in services and have already initiated drug testing and substance abuse treatment. They have a car, but cannot get it tagged due to fines from late toll payments. Until they can pay off the fines, they are without transportation. We are asking for a bus pass for each parent so they can get to their services and court hearings. This would provide a practical need and remove a barrier to working toward reunification. Thank you for all the wonderful help you provide!

I am trying to find a tv, dvd player, tv stand and some dvd's for a teenager without a strong familial support system. She is able to have her own room and these items are allowed. This would provide an option for entertainment in the comfort of her own room.

A grandmother has taken in three of her grandchildren who are all under the age of three. The grandmother is not receiving any financial assistance and is becoming overwhelmed financially. The department would like to help the grandmother with groceries for the month. Meeting this need would allow the grandmother some financial relief and give her the ability to allocate her funds towards the other needs of the children. Thank you.

I have a child client who has recently reported to us that their refrigerator is not properly sealing and food is spoiling within days. Because of this, the kiddo is not eating a "normal" amount for his age, and there are 2 other children plus mom in the household dealing with this struggle as well. In addition, mom struggles as-is to keep groceries stocked, so them spoiling quickly is hurting her finances and ability to provide for the children further. Their request is a refrigerator/freezer combo that operates as it should, new or used of course doesn't matter, as long as it works. A new-to-them fridge would greatly improve their lives and well-being.
A bio family needs help so they can have more family time with their 10 month old baby placed far away from where they live. The mother and father do not have transportation. Time with their child is available, they just need help with transportation. They stated that they are willing to take the greyhound bus there and back so they can see their child more. We are asking for help in getting them bus tickets to help them see their child on the weekends. The estimated cost is for one round trip ticket for each parent. Thank you for all you do. You make a positive impact in the lives of the families we serve.
