Keep Family Together: Enid
3/20/18: Oklahoma United Methodist’s Circle of Care broke ground on its new specialized foster care home Monday afternoon. The site is next to the Holsinger Home on Oakwood, which first opened its doors in 1999. The home currently houses seven children — two adopted children and five siblings — said Circle of Care CEO Don Batson. The new home will be modeled after and built next to the Holsinger Home. “The Holsinger Home provides care for children who have been removed from their home due to problems such as physical or sexual abuse, drug and alcohol abuse, and family problems. The coordinators of the home are licensed by the state of Oklahoma, Department of Human Services (DHS) as foster parents for children in DHS custody,” according to Circle of Care’s website.
