As the U.S. deals with COVID-19, more foster families are needed locally and across Oklahoma. On any given day, just over 8,000 children in the State of Oklahoma are in DHS custody. Like any child, these children need to be in families and more foster families are needed across the state to give these children a safe place to live, within their own communities, while their families get the help they need. Foster parents don’t just foster children, they foster families too, which helps parents and children become healthy and whole again. If you have ever considered fostering, please do so, the need is great. Applications to foster a child are still being processed.
