We have a single local foster mom who has been providing emergency respite/placement for teens in need that would otherwise be spending nights in the office. She has opened up her home for well over 20 kiddos since she has been fostering and has been spending her own money to buy clothing and toiletries for teens that usually only have one set of clothing and often times even shoes that don't even fit. She will often take the children to Walmart to buy the children the essential items they need and can take with them while going home to home until permanent homes can be found. The foster mom and children would benefit greatly from any sort of donations such as Walmart/Walgreens gift cards so she can buy these teens clothing and essential toiletry items they need and can take with them.
The family is currently involved in a Family Centered Services case to prevent potential intervention through the court system.

Client in need includes natural mother and her two year old son. Natural mother is engaged in family time with her son and is dedicated to reunifying with him. However she does struggle with poverty and lack of transportation. She would love to attend her necessary treatment services but struggles finding a way to get there. Helping this mother with transportation via uber assistance would go a long way in ensuring she attends treatment which would assist her in reunifying with her son. Her and her son have a strong, loving bond so reunification for this case is key and lack of transportation right now is a major barrier.
Two foster children are entering new placement and are in need of a bunk bed, 2 mattresses, and bedding. The two teenage girls have moved around from home to home, and unfortunately do not have any sheets, blankets, pillows, or other bedding for themselves. The girls will be sharing a room with each other and would benefit from having a bunk bed (and mattresses) in order to save space.
A new foster parent, older in age, took placement of two teens who are infested with head lice. She is overwhelmed with all the washing and cleaning of the home. One child who has very thick hair has to have it professionally treated at the lice clinic, as well as have a haircut. This is a major expense, along with all the continuing of washing. They will receive a discount for having Soonercare.

Hi please help this mother with transportation. This Mother is struggling to pay for bus fare due limited monthly income. Please help provide this family with a bus pass. She does her best to make it to every visit and appointment no matter what time. This bus pass would help make sure she can make it to family time, and court. Thank you so much for your generosity, and help in bringing this parent closer to reunification.
An adult sister has placement of her teenage sister and her biological 3-year-old daughter. Foster care payments have not started yet and the teen is eating a lot more and adding to the grocery and electric bills. Her current electric bill is $281. Any help with this older sister-turned-foster mom's electric bill would be a blessing for this family.
A foster family is in need of assistance with their electric bill. The foster parent is currently struggling with finances and has not been fully approved for foster care maintenance payments at this time. Any assistance would help this family maintain placement.
OKDHS is currently working with a young man who has exceeded the limit for replacement glasses this year that are covered by the Oklahoma Healthcare Authority. He would benefit from having a backup pair because he is all-boy and can be rough on them. Without his glasses, he squints and struggles to read, which would lead to issues in the classroom. There is currently a "bundle" deal going at a nearby eye doctor where you can get two pair of glasses (with bi-focals) for $140.07. We felt that this might be a great option to help him get through the remainder of the year! If you or a group could assist, we would be very grateful! Thanks so much!
Location: Sand Springs, OK 74063-County:Creek-Children Served: 1-Agency: #OK-DHS Child Welfare-Tier 1: Physical Needs-Estimated Value:$140
Is it possible to upload his rx and get the glasses from a website? Eyebuydirect.com or Zenni.com sells prescription kids glasses starting at around $20… just thought I would pass this on in case the family didn’t know??
