Help us end the effects of the abuse suffered by every child who walks through our door!
The sad reality is that children in our community are experiencing abuse at alarming rates. We simply do not have enough staff to keep up! Our goal for December 31, 2021 is to raise $5,000 to fill the gap to provide additional staff so that every child who walks through our door receives consistent and comprehensive care to end the effects of abuse they have suffered. 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
Sonic or restaurant Gift Cards for families
Fish Fry For the Small Fry
Fish Fry for the Small Fry June 18 2021! With careful consideration of the current conditions of COVID-19, and positive responses from our volunteers and sponsors, the Board of Directors of Dearing House has agreed to host the 7th annual FISH FRY FOR THE SMALL FRY on Fry-day June 18 at beautiful Standing Bear Park. Special considerations will be taken to assure the health and safety of all involved, but an outdoor event with plenty of space should offer the opportunity we missed last year and we so look forward to having this fun, family-focused event with lots of great food, games, live music and beautiful Oklahoma weather (fingers crossed)! Cost of tickets is still just $10 in advance ($12 at the gate) for all you can eat, and because we value children so much, kids under age 10 eat free with their grownups. Tickets are available her or on our Facebook page. Looking forward to seeing you Fry-day June 18! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fish-fry-for-the-small-fry-tickets-149585844287
