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.
Bio-mom is need of help paying someone for transportation to service providers and to visits with children. Mom is currently in between jobs and does not have a car, but has a friend that is willing to provide the transportation, if mom can help with expenses.
There are two sweet and energetic little girls (ages 8, 9) currently in an adoptive placement with their maternal cousin (adoptive mom). This adoptive mom has made an enormous sacrifice for her cousin by taking in her children. These precious girls have already been through more trauma than a child should face. Adoptive mom has been working tirelessly making sure the girls have the proper care and therapy they need to work through their trauma. The girls have told the worker on several occasion they would like to have fun and attend summer camp. 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!
A foster home is in need of assistance paying a $75 enrollment fee for daycare for two young foster children. There is one working resource parent in the home that has three adults and three foster children. Income is limited per month.
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!

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.
