Who We Support
Family TREE of Southeastern Oklahoma
The Stigler Health and Wellness Center (HWC) aims to offer hope and promote permanency for children and families involved with the child welfare system through a community collaboration of formal and natural supports. The HWC will deliver a care coordination approach to support families working toward reunification in partnership with Department of Human Services Child Welfare staff, biological parents, kinship caregivers, judges, district attorneys, parents’ and children’s attorneys, CASA volunteers, medical providers, and community behavioral health providers in southeastern Oklahoma. The goals of the initiative are to ensure safety of the children, increase the percentage of children reunified with their biological parents, decrease placement disruptions, decrease the time children spend in foster care, and promote the well-being of children and their families.
