TULSA, Okla. — Family & Children’s Services was one of several Tulsa nonprofits to earn social innovation grants from the Tulsa Area United Way this week.

F&CS’ project is a special 24-7 crisis team to respond to placement issues with children in the foster care system, an issue thrust in to the spotlight with the recent closure of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services Laura Dester Shelter.
