Working Hard for Oklahoma

By Governor Mary Fallin 

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.

These artifacts include historic documents written by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, during the 1804 Lewis and Clark expedition, and preserved by the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City; the Murrell Home in Park Hill established by George and Minerva Murrell in 1838- 39; a 1910 cradleboard with painted designs and beadwork preserved in the Pawnee Bill Ranch and Museum near Pawnee; and a sausage mill hauled in a wagon by John and Rebecca White to a settlement near Fort Towson and preserved at the Fort Towson Museum.

A Word From The Superintendent
