A New Look

COBYS Family Services is pleased to unveil our new logo. As the services and programs of COBYS have grown in recent years, we wanted a refreshed agency image, reflecting  the hope and promise of a brighter future for the children, adults and families we serve.

The logo demonstrates how much COBYS values being an organization with serving hands and caring hearts for those in need. The colors represent inspiring energy and hope.

Each service area of COBYS will be represented with a corresponding color used in the logo design to help quickly identify focus of information presented.

We are grateful for the work and cooperation with our friends at Scheffey Marketing & Communications in the design of the new logo.
