There are three energetic girls 5, 8, and 9 currently in an adoptive placement with their Aunt. The girls have been asking the worker constantly to find day camps they can attend because they do not want to attend everyday once school is out. Foster mom and the girls have found several different camps; however scholarships and discounts there is still a balance preventing these precious girls from attend camps. Which will cause them to miss out on adventure, laughs, and making new friends. If you are able to help this family with all or part of this fee, it would be an enormous help in alleviating some of the financial stress foster mom is currently under. Thank you for your help! We appreciate you!
Hello!! I am a school-based specialist with DHS and Union Public Schools. I have a family of 3, a mother and her two daughters, who need assistance with their vehicle. The mother, who is a single parent and does not receive any help financially from the father, was recently in a wreck(not her fault.) Unfortunately, she only had liability coverage on her vehicle, which means she is out of pocket for her repairs. Her vehicle has substantial damage to her hood and lights. These have to be replaced in order for her to be able to drive safely. The mother has been working very diligently to raise funds(working overtime) and looking for someone who will assist her with the repairs if she funds the parts. She has already spent quite a bit of money herself and is running out of funds to finish the car. She still needs the headlights and hood, which equal over $400. The mother has done the work of finding her parts by calling auto salvages and looking online for used parts. I can provide a picture of the parts and their costs. The hood is $259.98 and the lights are $214.99. This mother and her children(one is a senior at Union looking at graduating from Tulsa Tech soon) would be so very grateful for this help. Please and thank you.
The family needs assistance with an enrollment fee of $250 dollars to be able secure a place in a preschool for the 5 year old female child. The school district does not allow the Pre-K class to ride the bus to and from school. Both parents in the home work full time and would be unable to pick the child up from school everyday. To help maintain the placement funds are needed to help pay the enrollment fee to secure the place in the preschool. The family has already been off work due to not knowing this information at the time of the placement last week regarding the school not allowing Pre-K to ride the bus.
Bio mom in need of gas card in order to attend Family Time with two children in Marlow, Ok. She will be driving down early on MARCH 25. Mom is in the process of reunification with her children and only gets to visit them twice/month. Any help is greatly appreciated!
I have a bio mom who is currently in trial reunification with one of her kids. She has 2 more kids that she is working on getting home also. She is in need of assistance with her high electric bill. The total amount due on 3/21/23 is $563.27. This mother has been making progress towards reunification with her kids and meeting this need would help her tremendously.
Single mother of 3, ages 8 through 13, who is successfully working toward reunification is currently struggling to make ends meet. Mother is interviewing with multiple employers but is seeking an overnight position to be available for her children during the day. Due to the children’s special needs there are occasions they must be picked up early from school due to disruptive behaviors. The electric bill is currently past due with a balance of $268. If her electric gets cut off an additional fee will be charged to reconnect, making it harder for her to become financially stable. The homes primary source of cooling and heating are electrically powered and this would create a challenge to maintain hygiene and prepare meals.
Sibling group of 5, ages 2-12 are celebrating the birthday of the youngest child. The children are currently placed in three separate homes. To allow the children an opportunity to create positive memories with one another a request in the amount of $132 is being made for incredible pizza or another child/family friendly establishment in the Tulsa Area
This mom and child are in trial reunification and dependent on the bus. She has multiple services throughout town that she is required to get to, in addition to getting food for her family. A bus pass would be helpful for her to be able to do to this and take one more thing off her shoulders to worry about.
This is for a relative kinship home. The family has two boys and they are in need of both pull ups and diapers. They need pampers size 5 and 7 and pull ups size 4/5T . Price estimate is based on Walmart prices for approximately $40 per package. The boys have very sensitive skin and Pampers is the one the doctor recommends and the only brand that does not appear to make their eczema worse. This family is in a kinship home and moving steadily towards reunification. Any assistance we can provide for them is appreciated. Wipes were not requested but would be appreciated.
A non-pain kinship home is requesting assistance in obtaining a few bus passes for the family to get around on a day-to-day basis. The family does not have any transport of their own and relies primarily on the public bus as their means of transport. The family is requesting 3 months' supply of bus passes (The cost per bus pass is $45, totaling to $135). Your help, no matter how small will be very greatly appreciated. Thanks
This case involves 7 children who have been reunified with mom on her single income that consists only of her disability check for a severe spine injury. She is doing a great job of managing money and resources to care for all 8 of them on this very limited amount of money but resources for hygiene products are hard to come by and 4 of these children are teenagers/preteens. Mom would strongly benefit from some help paying for hygiene products, specifically pads, deodorant, soap, lotion, and hair care products for black hair. She has reached out to a local resource that is able to provide these some times but it is a several week wait.
This mom is currently working her service plan to reunify with her children. She is needing help with transportation. She lives in Tulsa and often utilizes the bus system. She is needing help with getting a bus pass so she can work and attend her services in efforts to reunify with her children.
This family has recently entered Trial Reunification and things are going very well. The family had gotten a car to help with transportation and it has broken down. They are working to get it fixed but need to be able to get around until they do. The family is in need of bus passes for the both parents to help get them to services along with being able to get them and the children around to appointments and to run errands, like getting groceries. Please help them out by providing them each with a 31 day bus pass.

FURNITURE NEED!!! This family has one couch in their living room, and a fold out table for the kitchen table. They are in NEED of a new couch, the current one they have is not safe for the kids. This family consists of three young children and their biological parents. The parents have been working hard on creating a safe place for all of their children. They have been making progress but have some physical needs that need to be met to improve their children's well-being. Father works fulltime to provide for the family, while mom is full-time caregiver of the children. The family has physical needs they are unable to take care of, and while the case worker has been working to get the family resources, finding a couch for the family of 5 has been challenging. Being able to receive a couch for this family would provide comfort and a safe place to spend family time together. The families current couch has numerous hazards that are not safe for the young children, but it is currently the only seating in the house. This is where the family spends all of their time together, so a safe and new couch would increase togetherness and continue to give the family hope and cohesiveness as they continue with our parenting program.

This resource family is 2 uncles and a great uncle taking care of their nieces. This family is in need of some dresser drawers for 2 little girls, ages 5 and 6 yo. They would like 2 separate drawers if possible, but would also take 1 larger dresser that could house all of the girls' clothes. Please let me know if you can meet this need.
I have a relative foster home who have taken placement of their neice and nephew. They are in need of a full size mattress for the bunk bed they have. Currently they are using a queen on it which does not fit. Additionally, they could use full size bedding suitable for a pre-teen boy.
Family includes natural mother and her two children, ages 5 months and 2 years. Mother is doing fantastic in treatment but is struggling financially. Helping this family with paying a utility bill will greatly enhance this family's ability for success and stability.
