​Foster Care for Children and Adults with Developmental Disabilities

In Oklahoma, we believe the family home is the best place for individuals with developmental disabilities to live and grow. We also recognize it is not always possible for every child to remain with their birth parents and there are not enough adoptive families available. Older parents may no longer be able to provide care for their adult children with special needs. This leaves a group of children and adults who need caregivers and homes.
