Oklahoma Human Services provides additional support to resource families

Oklahoma’s Director of Child Welfare Services writes to foster parents to announce additional support to assist families during the pandemic.

“During this incredibly difficult time, our thoughts have continually returned to the families we serve, including our wonderful resource families, and how we can best support you as you care for Oklahoma’s children. We know that schools being closed and children returning home full-time have dramatically impacted your lives and resources due to unexpected costs. For this reason and in a desire to offer supports that positively impact placement stability, Oklahoma Human Services (OKDHS) is excited to provide $250 per month, per child in OKDHS custody as emergency relief to your family for these unexpected expenses.”
