LifeLaunch

Ever wish you could connect with a teen about to “age out” of foster care? We are looking for groups of 4-5 adults interested in meeting with a teen in foster care at least twice a month to share life experience and be a sounding board.
Please join us for a brief (10 minute) introduction session on becoming a LifeLaunch family group on April 17th at 6:30pm at the Spero Resource Center, 4646 NE Santa Fe, Oklahoma City.
If you are interested, stay for the training to begin at 7pm sharp!
All LifeLaunch families will be invited to celebrate with the foster grads at FLUX 2012!

Grad Party THIS WEEK!!

Did you know that approximately 50% of kids in foster care ever graduate from high school and less than 2% go on to finish college or trade school. These kids have beaten the odds! They are over-comers!  We are proud to honor their accomplishment to better themselves!

It’s not too late if you would like to contribute to celebrating this accomplishment. Please contact us at okfosterwishes@gmail.com to make a contribution and/or donation!
