To Make Monetary Donations

Who will get the blankets and gloves that you donate? Most of the donations will go to the F&CS Homeless Outreach Team which assists homeless adult individuals who are diagnosed with a severe mental illness. Some of these individuals are served at the Tulsa City County Libraries and at the Iron Gate Soup Kitchen and Pantry.
F&CS also has a Tulsa Housing and Recovery Program. The primary goal of this project is to enhance the residential stability of chronically homeless persons now living in supportive housing.
In addition, many of the F&CS partner organizations will benefit. These include Iron Gate, Tulsa City County Libraries, Salvation Army, 41 Tulsa Public Schools and thirteen Head Start programs through the Community Action Project.
Family & Children’s Services (F&CS) heals traumatized and abused children, strengthens individuals and families, and provides hope and a path to recovery for those battling mental illness and addictions. F&CS does this through 53 life-changing programs that serve 114,000 individuals, or 1 in 6 Tulsans each year.
