Caring for the community

Family & Children’s Services has helped Tulsans for 90 years.



In 2015, Family & Children’s Services celebrates 90 years of service to the Tulsa community. CEO Gail Lapidus has been with the organization for 40 years.

In desperation, a mother writes, pleading for assistance to save her five children from her abusive husband, hunger and poor living conditions.

“… And what I want to know is, is there any organization or society that will protect me and my children when I try to rise up out of poverty and suffering that is so needless? It is the start that is so hard.”

Although the letter was penned in 1925 to Family & Children’s Services, known then as the Family Welfare Society, the words are far too familiar for Gail Lapidus, CEO of the nonprofit that has served Tulsa for 90 years.

“Although the expressions are a little different, the conditions are almost identical in 2015 to what they were in 1925,” Lapidus says. “That I find a little disheartening.

“Despite having so much more knowledge and despite how progressive we seem, the same problems are right here in our community.”

With a mission to help the underserved, vulnerable and suffering, Family & Children’s Services has grown and evolved to accommodate a changing  Tulsa community. 

Over most of its history, the organization focused on strengthening families and helping those experiencing life’s struggles and transitions — whether that involved children, marriage, stress or grief.

In the past 20 years, Family & Children’s Services added programs to address mental health. That contributed to the growth of the organization’s 49 programs/services that range from marriage enrichment programs and crisis intervention to child abuse and trauma treatment. Women in Recovery is one of the nonprofit’s most lauded programs, helping women facing long prison sentences for non-violent, drug-related offenses.

“In addition to providing financial support, the Tulsa Area United Way has hired two graduates of the WIR program,” says Mark Graham, Tulsa Area United Way president and CEO. “This is truly a transformative program for women who would otherwise face incarceration without effective treatment for their addiction.”

Family & Children’s Services’ child abuse and trauma treatment is one of the programs of which Lapidus is most proud. Extensive research and collaboration have contributed to the nonprofit’s success in the area.

“I know that if a child winds up here for care, (along with) their family or foster family, they will get the best that is available in the world right now,” she says. And if scientific research is true, “we really should be able to successfully reduce the impact in that child’s life for the future.”

Lapidus has been with Family & Children’s Services for 40 years. She began her career focused on children living in public housing, performing outreach to the neighborhood and area schools.

“Many of them had the same kinds of issues we have now,” she says. “Many people I discovered then, and I still discover now, don’t even know about resources.”

Connecting people with those resources is one of the organization’s biggest goals. To achieve it will take community collaborations and partnerships. One of Family & Children’s Services’ largest supporters is the Tulsa Area United Way. 

“Family & Children’s Services has provided a vital safety net for the Tulsa area for nearly a century,” Graham says. “I can’t imagine Tulsa without FCS — they are such an integral part of the well-being of our community.”

As Tulsa and organizations like Family & Children’s Services continue to tackle social issues, Lapidus urges those in peril to reach out for help. 

“I so believe that what we do makes a difference,” she says. “A family starts out in trouble and ends up a cohesive family. It starts out with somebody homeless, psychotic, suicidal, and ends really well where the person is functioning again and has hope again.

“When you’re in our line of business you see the problems, but you also see the resilience of people and you see how our different strategies help people and how they then help themselves. That’s what it’s all about.”
