Foster Care. 

March is Women's History Month and what better way to celebrate than to acknowledge the wonderful accomplishments of these women. All of the above, with the exception of Eliza Hamilton, grew up in the foster care system. Eliza is said to have provided care and support for over 700 children through the orphanage she helped found. 

Unfortunately, foster care comes with a stigma. A stigma we are hoping to end and change the narrative to, by helping these children receive all the support they can from the village in which they live. Our goals are to help normalize, support, destigmatize and provide tools for success for all the children we serve. 

Every child in foster care has a very unique story. Some are tragic, some are beautiful. However, it is our job to support each and every one of the children, to help them become as successful as the ladies above. Because of people like you, the village, these women were able to become strong, hard working and talented women, and start to change the narrative of children in the foster care system. 

What is your story? What is your role in the village of helping the children we serve thrive and become their own heroes and success stories? Let's keep working together to support the children we serve. 

Forever connecting hearts, 

Chris Siemens
Executive Director
Right now, there are more than 7,000 children in foster care. All of them deserving of love, hope and basic necessities. We can make that happen if we work as a team.

Join us on May 7th for our annual Treasures of Tulsa scavenger hunt! This year will be bigger and better than ever.

How Many Children Do Our Employees Have Altogether?
Meet: Phoenix

I want you to introduce you to our friend, Phoenix.

Phoenix is a bright, beautiful, hilarious little girl.
Her foster family utilizes our Resource Center every month. But this month was different; this month she brought US a gift: a check.

Phoenix was adopted!!

She and her family donated the stipend they typically receive from foster care and gave it to us. They were incredibly grateful for our work and our resources.

We could not provide the support we offer to families, like Phoenix's, without all of you.

We are extremely grateful.
