Ponca City Now - September 24, 2018 12:27 pm
Marland Children’s Home Tallgrass Tour is Saturday, Sept. 29, starting at 7:30 a.m. and going all day.
The Tallgrass Tour is a bike event benefiting the Home Saturday. Registration is $45 on the day of the event. Tandem riders are asked to register separately. The Tallgrass Tour is funded by local and out of town sponsors.
Marland Children’s Home is a foster care placement agency that serves youth who are placed in Oklahoma’s Foster Care System from all across Oklahoma.
Children, ages 0-18, can be served by our families in a Therapeutic Foster Care or a Traditional Foster Care setting, depending on their needs. MCH works to recruit, train, and provide ongoing support to foster parents through a contract with the Department of Human Services.
Children come to our families with a wide variety of backgrounds; however, most of them have been physically or sexually abused, deprived, or neglected. They are truly among the most destitute as they simply have no place else to go and no one else to rely upon.
We endeavor to not only give them a place to live but a home and a family. We strive to give them as many opportunities as possible to have a childhood. We simply could not achieve the mission of the Marland Children’s Home without the generosity of caring individuals, who believe that all children deserve a loving and caring home.
