Executive Director’s Report: 2016

We are truly grateful for the people that make White Fields a place our boys can call home. What a year 2016 has been for White Fields. Nearly all of our boys officially integrated into the Deer Creek Public School system. Many are excelling and we are seeing real results from therapy, structure, and most […]

Recreational Therapy

I started my journey at White Fields as the Recreational Coordinator in 2012 and my heart knew instantly that this was the right place for me. My time at White Fields has been filled with great experiences and outings with the boys. I’ve had the pleasure of taking our boys to Oklahoma City Dodgers games, the Wichita Mountains, Thunder […]

Small Gifts

Working as a Youth Guidance Specialist is often a thankless job but I love it. I have had the great pleasure of watching our boys grow in leaps and bounds. Our boys come to us broken and sometimes hopeless and it is my job to ensure that they all find their worth. I get to […]

Against Such There is No Law

My time at White Fields began in May of 2016 as a Master of Social Work student from the University of Oklahoma.  During this summer’s practicum rotations, the MSW students were placed at various non-profit agencies throughout the Oklahoma City metro area in order to gain first-hand experience in the social work field.  It was […]

Take Away Notes

White Fields: My Work Place Home

Working for White Fields has truly provided me with a joy unmatched by other employers.  This isn’t just where I work.  It’s not just a paycheck.  We call White Fields, “A Place to Call Home” for our boys.  However, I have found that it too, is a place to call home for me in terms […]

The Not So Traditional Family

“The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” Proverbs 16:9 This is our family verse that we live by and run to often! Jeff and I never thought we would be 28 and parents, much less parents to two biological children and a 13 year old foster son! Wow talk […]

This year alone we welcomed 6 new boys into our facility.  We had six children transition from our houseparent cottage into foster homes.
