This mother has worked so diligently over the last year and successfully closed her DHS case. We are proud to say she has exceeded every expectation of DHS, her counselor, her team here at Pearl’s Hope, and her expectations for herself! She is a phenomenal mother to her toddler. It’s been a joy to watch her adjust along with her child’s development and continue to learn new parenting skills. This summer, she completed her training to become an electrician apprentice, obtained a job, and has been saving money to move to her own home! She is able to pay all of her upfront moving costs but she does not have quite enough saved for furniture.

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!

This is a family with a small baby who is working hard to make their lives better and working to prevent their child from coming into custody. They have done so much for their family but rely on the bus. Bus passes would make it easier to get to their doctor appointments with the child, their parenting classes, and other required services. We are requesting 2 bus passes in order to assist the parents to getting to their required services, grocery shopping, medical appointments, etc.
