Oklahoma currently serves around 9,600 children in our Foster Care System. Reasons for removal vary from homelessness, abuse, neglect, and the lack of basic resources to care for the family.
Our Vision with our Thrive Foster Care Reunification Program is to help reunify families whose children are currently in the Foster Care System due to the lack of basic needs and resources. Working in cooperation with Ignite 405, Oklahoma Department of Human Services caseworkers, other organizations and community partners, we surround our clients with resources in order to provide a safe environment for their children to come home to. Some of those basic needs include providing brand new beds, pillows, blankets, clothing, personal care products, appliances, and furniture. In some cases, and after individual case assessment, we will offer a faith based transitional living program for those who are working and trying to reunify their families out of foster care. **Please note our transitional program is not currently ready. For housing information, please contact us for guidelines, requirements and updates of availability.***
Our goal is to support families in the reunification process to build stability and create HOPE for a positive future.
Thrive serves families in need of a loving and supportive community to assist with reunification. Each family at Thrive OK is engaged in an individualized case management designed to promote hope and self-sufficiency needed to break the the cycle of poverty.
