This family is in the process of reunifying with their 16-year-old daughter. These parents live in a home with limited space and an open backyard with their 3 female cats and 2 female dogs in their home that are in need of being neutered and spayed. One of their female dogs has recently had a litter of puppies and both parents have been struggling to find a home for the puppies. Both parents are aware that they are unable provide for the puppies which is why they would like to prevent their pets from the possibilities of breeding. This family qualifies for the $10 low-income spay and neutering services offered through HELP Tulsa OK Alliance for Animals, but they do not have the funds to pay for this service for their pets. This family would greatly appreciate any assistance offered for their pets spay and neuter services.
I have a dad who is currently staying in a hotel which is costing him $393 per week. Once he pays this amount, he has less than $60 left to last him for the week in terms of gas and food. He could use a weeks stay and grocery help. He is attempting to reunify with his two children.

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.
We have a father, who is hoping to reunify with his two children. He currently lives in a hotel. We are asking for financial assistance to pay for one-week's lodging to help him afford a deposit on an apartment.
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.
We have a paternal grandmother who has taken placement of her 4 grandchildren recently. The two kiddos have been sharing a bed but they are 5 and 6 and need their own beds to help build confidence. Foster mom is a single mother who has been doing great work with the kiddos and bridging with mom, but she needs a little support. These bunk beds will also follow the children if and when they are returned home to their mother. Anything will be appreciated and will help this grandma out!!
