Help Preserve a Kinship Placement

High Urgency Request
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.

Critical Request
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

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. The family does not have any heat or hot water in the home because of the gas bill being so high and them not having the extra money to pay it. Their gas has been shut off. This mother is doing everything that she can to provide for her children and is needing extra help with paying her gas bill so they can have heat back. With the weather being really cold, it is crucial that families have heat the family does not develop sickness or be really cold. The mother owes 572.98 on her gas bill. It is through Oklahoma Natural Gas. Please help out this family that is desperate to have heat in their home and hot water to shower. Thank you!

Help Make a Foster Care Placement

High Urgency Request
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.

This need is for a mother and child who have recently reunified. The mother frequently rides her bike or takes the bus. This one child bike trailer/stroller would allow her child to not have to walk so far to catch the bus and enable her to take the bike when necessary. The one that I found to be the best bargain is at Walmart and is the Allen Sports Deluxe 2-Child Bicycle Trailer & Stroller. It does not need to be this specific brand and can be donated one that is donated rather than purchased new.

I am working with a foster family who has placement of an 11 month old boy. He is becoming mobile, and the family has been able to obtain some safety devices for the home to help with physical safety. However, the foster family is still lacking a baby gate and has requested assistance in getting one. The space where the baby gate is needed is 90 inches in length, and would greatly help this family. We appreciate any assistance that can be offered.
