A Whole Lot Going On!
Joy in July, Back to School, Treasures of Tulsa – oh my! We are gearing up for a very busy but productive second half of 2021. Each of these events and campaigns will provide unique opportunities for you to support children in foster care in Tulsa and surrounding counties. Stay tuned for information on each of these important events!

As our community experiences a new normal, we are excited to partner with the City of Tulsa in an effort to provide children in foster care in Tulsa with additional opportunities. Fostering Connections is one of many local non-profits to be awarded funds to provide further assistance to those we serve within the city for the next 12 months. More specific information about this project will be announced soon.

As always, thank you for your continued support of our most vulnerable children.

Forever connecting hearts,

Chris Siemens,
Executive Director
