This month marks a special anniversary. It’s been a year since I launched an initiative called Oklahoma Fosters, which renewed our efforts to find foster families for the hundreds of children in state custody and coming into state custody.
Its goal, simply put, is to recruit foster families.
There are nearly 9,800 children in state custody, and we desperately need the help of ALL Oklahomans.
Oklahoma Fosters is a statewide initiative uniting state, tribal and local governments, businesses, nonprofits and the faith-based community to end the foster care crisis in Oklahoma.
