A single foster to adopt mother of two plus an adopted child in the home, has been having to take time off work (unpaid) in order to get one of the foster children psychiatric help. Due to the loss of income and due to the extra expenses of having to travel to the facility weekly where the child is inpatient for family therapy, the foster mother is struggling with meeting all her monthly financial obligations. The foster mother is committed to engaging in all that is required in order to get the foster child the help needed. This permanency worker is advocating for grocery assistance to help lessen the financial burden on the family. Any assistance in meeting this need will be greatly appreciated by the family and DHS.

The facility where the child is inpatient is requiring the foster mother to attend in person family therapy. The facility is a three hour round trip drive. The foster mother is committed to engaging in all services that is required in order to get the foster child the help needed.

Any assistance in meeting this need will be greatly appreciated by the family and DHS.
Two amazing pre teen girls are in the process of being adopted by their paternal aunt, the only thing standing in the way is that she needs to finalize her divorce before the adoption can go through. She has been making payments to start the process but she could use assistance in getting it paid off so that these girls can finally be adopted and know that they really have achieved permanency.
I have a dad who is working towards reunification with his daughter. He could use assistance with food to ensure he is able to feed his daughter during visits. Additionally, I would like to request a family membership to the zoo or the aquarium so that he can visit outside the home.
Hi there! I have a non-paid kinship placement that is in need of some financial assistance. They have fallen behind on some bills and would greatly benefit from any help that you may be able to provide. Again, this is a non-paid kinship placement and they have been such a blessing to the girls placed in their care. Any help you may be able to provide would immensely appreciated. Thank you so much in advance for your time and consideration!
Please help us strengthen this single mother by assisting her with paying her court fines. This single mother has overcome her addiction to alcohol and is maintaining her sobriety by attending treatment. However, in the midst of her addiction she accrued several fines that resulted in her license being suspended. She is now having trouble getting to and from services as well as having trouble accomplishing daily parental duties as her driver's license has been suspended. Please help this mom cover her court fines so she can get her driver's license.
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.
We have a family, whose children have been put into a kinship placement. Two of the children are school age and to be able to get them from their kinship home to school, which is about a 45 minute drive each way, they need monetary assistance in the form of gas cards.
Young mother is trying the get her driver's license reinstated. The Department of Public Safety requires that she take a drug and alcohol assessment to do so. The cost for the assessment is $160. Mother is being very vigilant is engaging with her treatment plan for the Department and has been testing negative for our treatment plan. However, the DPS requires a very specific drug and alcohol assessment in order to issue a driver's license for individuals with prior convictions.
Please help strengthen this father. He has lost his job and place to live. He only has his car left and is need of assistance with his car payment, so he can get to and from services for substance abuse treatment. Please help strengthen this father by assisting with his car payment so he can get to and from treatment.
Please help strengthen this single mother of two. Mom has separated from the father of her children, and is gaining her independence. She does not have a driver's license, and is in need of driver's education. Please bless this single mother by paying for driver's ed course. Blessings.
Hello there. I have a family who is in need of some assistance paying their water bill. Two weeks ago, one of their children (he is 2 years old with a birthday coming up in April) came down with a very bad case of RSV. He had to be hospitalized for 3 nights. As he began to recover, the rest of the household became ill. As a result, the family has faced some unforeseen financial hardships (caregivers missing work, multiple doctor's visits, paying for medications, etc.). This family would really appreciate any kind of help you may be able to provide at this time. Thank you so much in advance for your time and consideration!

A local group home would love to make a day trip for a teen very special. An outing in February is planned for this teen and the GH staff would love to make this a day just for him. They plan to attend an event he is very interested in; the Monster Truck Jam. They also plan to go out to eat, buy souvenirs, and just make the day very special for him. This young man has been in this home for a number of years and he has formed many friendships. Some of his group home peers have moved on however, and they're move has put a damper on his spirits. The staff at the GH would really love to make the day very special and just for him.
I am currently working with a maternal grandmother who has taken placement of her two young grandchildren, ages 17 months and 3 months. This foster mother/grandmother is in need of a dresser to help store all of the baby items such as clothing, diapers, wipes, etc. for the children. She has utilized some of the space she has, but is currently folding clothes and lining them along the wall as she does not have anywhere to put them. This grandmother would greatly appreciate assistance in obtaining a dresser so she has a place to put the children's items. Thank you in advance for whatever assistance can be provided.

Hello, I have a family that is starting reunification with their children. It is two parents and three teenagers. The mother is paralyzed and in need of new bedding, and currently only has an old hospital blanket to lay under. The mother stated they did not have sheets and blankets for the beds in the home. The children are also in need of new bedding. This family is trying hard to get back to their normal and I wanted to try and help with a little of the stress by allowing them to be able to sleep on new sheets and blankets. Thank you in advance for any help out there, and always know OKDHS really appreciates all the help we receive for our families.
