FOSTER FAMILY RESOURCE CENTER
The Foster Family Resource Center (FFRC) is designed to meet the immediate and ongoing needs of children in foster care in Tulsa and contiguous counties (Washington, Creek, Osage, Pawnee, Rogers, Okmulgee, and Muskogee). Often relative/kinship families are asked to provide emergency placements with no prior notice due to immediate safety threats to the children. The children often enter foster care without appropriate shoes, coats, clothing and other necessary personal items.
Due to federal mandates and requirements relative/kinship foster parents cannot begin receiving foster care reimbursement for several months. The FFRC, through our partnership with DHS, will provide immediate access to required basic needs including beds/cribs/clothing /car seats and other items at initial placement and continued monthly support as needed.
Fostering Connections views foster family retention as a component of our success. Foster families who feel supported continue to provide homes and create meaningful bonds and relationships that are so desperately needed by the abused and neglected children we serve.
In 2019 over 3,900 visits were made to the FFRC – significant growth since our 903 visits in 2011!
The Foster Family Resource Center is located at 3326 East 51st Tulsa, OK.
