Families are never charged for any services provided by Dearing House. Funding is primarily through a contract with the State of Oklahoma and other grants, but your donations fill in the gap and ensure that Dearing House is able to continue providing services to families as well as the extensive professional development provided to law enforcement, prosecutors and social workers. All donations to this non-profit 501(c)3 are tax-deductible. Thank you for helping us hear, help and heal victims of child abuse!
With your donations of physical supplies, more funding and focus is able to go directly to helping children. It's vital that children feel welcomed and supported when they arrive at Dearing House, so everyone is welcomed with drinks and snacks. Chocolate and meals for the team are also helpful when staff, law enforcement officers and social workers start to feel the stress of the very difficult situations they are investigating and offering services for. Donations of the following are accepted all year long:
Reams of Copy Paper
Regular or Postcard Postage Stamps
Paper Plates, Napkins, Plastic Utensils
Styrofoam Coffee Cups
Individually Wrapped Snacks - Fruit Roll-Ups, Crackers, etc
Small Juice Boxes and Water Bottles
Pizza Gift Cards
Fish Fry For the Small Fry
No Fish Fry for the Small Fry 2020! Following the guidelines of state and federal agencies regarding COVD-19, we have cancelled the 7th Annual Fish Fry scheduled for June 19, 2020 at beautiful Standing Bear Park. Our board, staff and volunteers have worked tirelessly , looking forward to joining YOU and your family at this beloved community event. The health and well-being of children is our first priority, so even the remotest possibility that this event could put kids, families, volunteers or YOU at risk, made this decision easy. Know that Dearing House’s board, volunteers and staff will start today planning for an even bigger event next year. Just wait - you will be amazed at what we can accomplish with another 12 months of planning! We would love for you to join in the preparations as a volunteer, a cooking team, or sponsor in 2021.
