Welcome to Building Bridges: A Newsletter for Oklahoma Bridge Resource Families.

Each issue will focus on a theme targeted to meet the needs of foster, kinship, and adoptive Bridge resource families. You will find information and resources you can use whether you are caring for infants, preschoolers, elementary age children, adolescents, or young adults.

This publication is made possible by a partnership of The Oklahoma Department of Human Services Child Welfare Services and The University of Oklahoma OUtreach National Resource Center for Youth Services. These two agencies work together to provide you with quality pre-service and in-service training opportunities designed to prepare and support you on your journey as a Bridge resource family. Thank you for your commitment to providing a safe and stable family environment for Oklahoma’s children and youth.
