Bring a DHS Foster Child “Home for the Holidays”
Imagine spending Christmas Day in an emergency shelter away from your home and family…
Now imagine yourself as a child spending Christmas Day in an emergency shelter away from your home and family…
You’re probably wondering why in the world would I have you imagine such horrible and depressing things. Why?
Because it’s not make believe.
Innocent children do spend Christmas Day in emergency shelters separated from their loved ones as they await foster homes. You can open your heart and your home to these children by hosting one of them for Christmas.
Through its “Home for the Holidays” initiative, the Oklahoma Department of Human Services seeks people interested in opening their homes to these children so they can spend the Christmas holiday with a family instead of in an emergency shelter.
