For more than 30 years, Citizens Caring for Children has provided for children living in foster care by meeting their material, emotional, and intellectual needs.
After bringing many abused and neglected children into their hearts and home, an Edmond foster family knew first-hand the unaddressed need of clothing and resources children in foster care face after leaving all of their personal belongings behind. They knew more could be done to meet the basic needs of these children and founded Citizens Caring for Children in 1984.
Today, Citizens Caring for Children is still committed to the agency's original vision of providing hope, changing lives and creating healthy futures for children in foster care. Citizens Caring for Children meets the needs of more than 1,600 Oklahoma children in foster care each year through services and programs like the Resource Center, Back2School and Joy4Kids.
