Oklahoma’s Kids Belong helps foster children tell their stories in their own words and connects them with forever families.
“Peppers Ranch is a community of like-minded foster parents,” said Tonya Ratcliff. “There are 13 houses at Peppers Ranch, and each one is rented by a foster family who must have a minimum of five foster children.”
The program currently serves children in Cleveland, McClain, Pottawatomie, Garvin, Seminole and Lincoln counties.
The Come Around EP includes ZHU guitarist Mitch Bell, Horse Thief drummer Alberto Roubert and hip-hop artist Jabee.
In addition to its Back 2 School event, Citizens Caring for Children allows foster children four visits for clothing each year.
A lot of new laws were made and a lot of issues were ignored this year.
