Connecting the community with opportunities to serve Oklahoma’s children affected by abuse, neglect, and abandonment.
OK Foster Wishes coordinates with OKDHS to receive foster children’s Christmas wish lists from all over the state. We then partner with the community to distribute the wish lists through businesses, organizations, and individuals as a direct gift to a child in custody. The effort has brought great awareness to the foster care issue by safely lifting the veil of confidentiality to show that children in foster care are not nameless, faceless kids, who many believe that the government is solely responsible for, but real kids just like kids in our neighborhood who have the same hopes, dreams and wants. This year, OKDHS has designated all “Wish Lists” be managed through OK Foster Wishes and the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy. Oklahoma Foster Wishes is proud to announce our partnership with the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy. This partnership will enable us to to reach more Oklahomans willing to help provide holiday presents to Oklahoma children in foster care. We’re thrilled for the opportunity to link the community to directly serve the nearly 10,000 kids in foster care in our state.
