Help us raise snack donations for Family Hope House!
Who is Family Hope House: "At Family Hope House, we address the attachment concerns associated with neglect and food scarcity through intentional play-based interventions utilizing snacks. We provide both the child and parent an opportunity to have a snack together, allowing the parent to feed the child. For many children, this is uncomfortable. They have never had this kind of nurturing and caring attention. However, it quickly grows to be one of their favorite moments in a therapy session; a moment when they experience their parent or caregiver meeting their needs in a loving and kind way. This is one of the building blocks for a healthy attachment and one of the central focuses of family therapy at FHH."

Why: 22.6% percent of Oklahoma’s children live in “food insecure” homes, meaning their families don’t regularly have enough food to eat. (nokidhungry.org) Oklahoma is well above the national average. Naturally, this percentage is much higher for children who have been, or are currently in, foster care. Children who have experienced food insecurity have permanent changes in brain chemistry that impact their daily lives and even their attachment patterns and behaviors.
