In Muskogee, Oklahoma, state budget cuts forced a DHS office to close down that caused 1,500 people to lose its services.  Programs such as Aid to Families with Dependent Children diminished for those who were in dire need of public assistance.  Many mothers were affected since they had depended on DHS for funding to help their children while they went to college.  Because of the office closing, programs run through DHS lost many women as clients.  DHS provides families with items such as food stamps and child care subsidies and without an office providing public assistance, many people, especially single mothers, are left with a heavy financial burden with no where to turn to.
