Kinship foster parents took placement of their nephew and niece. The family are still working on becoming an approved foster placement so that foster stipend can begin. The niece has many health issues and is required to go to the OU Children's Medical Center in OKC for her intensive doctor appointments. The family has been providing the gas for many past appointments to OKC. The family has also transported the niece to her weekly physical, occupational, and speech therapy, which are 60 miles away roundtrip. This permanency worker would like to advocate on behalf of the family in securing a gas card to help with the many medical appointments for the child. The family has been providing all the needs for the children without any financial assistance for many months. The family would benefit greatly if a church would commit to assisting with their greatest need at this time.

A 10 month old baby boy was recently placed in a newly certified foster home who has not received their first foster care payment. The baby is higher on the growth chart for his age and has outgrown the current car seat. The child is now in need of a 5 point car seat so he can be transported safely and for the placement to be maintained.
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.
A kinship parent is approved DHS to be foster parent to three children (Twins 3 y/o and a 5 y/o) who does not have a place to go. She can take the sibling group, but does not have appropriate sleeping arrangements. The foster parent asked for help. She needs two toddler beds, and needs everything for it, and a twin sheet and comforter for the 5 y/o. Any help is greatly appreciated to keep this sibling group together and into placement as quickly as possible. This is a RUSH request. Need beds by tomorrow night 01/26/23. Thank you in advance for your help to keep these kids with family and in placement together. This is an adopted kinship home and the children would be adopted by family.
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.
two siblings who will be placed together are in need of some clothing, this will help to keep siblings in the same home.
