Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The mission of White Fields, Inc. is to give hope to boys who have been abused or neglected, empowering them to be productive citizens.
Founded in 2000, White Fields is a public/private collaboration with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services Child Welfare Division that provides a safe, long-term home for severely abused and neglected boys. Our 140-acre campus provides residential, recreational and educational facilities. We welcomed our first residents in Fall 2006. Upon completion of all building phases our campus will be able to accommodate 50 boys.
White Fields serves boys age 8 to 18, helping them regain their ability to trust, heal emotionally, broaden relationships and develop into adulthood. Our unique continuum of care model will allow boys to live at White Fields until they graduate high school and are able to support themselves.
We believe every child is worth loving and has a unique contribution to offer the world - we strive to help each of our boys see that in themselves. These boys have seen the very worst life has to offer, and we will give them hope and help them heal.
