The Oklahoma Department of Human Services is looking for creative ways to find more foster families.

DHS has partnered with local churches to help children in the foster care system, according to KFOR.

And the need is great. There are nearly 10,000 children in the state’s system, but only 4,500 foster homes.

DHS is working with several churches on something called a care portal. The portal allows people interested in helping to donate things like bus passes and beds for kids in need.
